UK Franchisee Opens 700th Store Worldwide

A Cash Converters franchisee has opened the 700th store worldwide in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear, 20 years since the first store opened in the UK.

David Thomson, now owner of eight Cash Convertersstores in the North East and Scotland, was also named as Franchisee of the Year at the company’s national conference in Portugal last year.

Cash Converters, the global leading international retailer of pre-owned goods and financial services, is looking to expand its franchisee network across the country. David Thomson said: “Becoming a Cash Converters franchisee has opened many business doors for me and is one of the best decisions of my life. I was thrilled to open the 700th store in Jarrow and pick up the national accolade last year. I now have eight stores in total including Newcastle, Byker, Wallsend, Glasgow, Gateshead, Consett and Motherwell.

“Cash Converters offers an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to run their own store. The head office team has made the process much easier than I could have imagined and have been really supportive providing advice and training whenever I have needed it especially when it came to expanding my store portfolio.”

As a member of the franchisee network, franchisees will take part in one of the most comprehensive training programmes in the industry and will receive support and encouragement from fellow franchisees, Cash Converters head office and the training team.

David added: “The training provided by experienced franchisees is invaluable when first starting in the industry, those who have first-hand experience having gone through the process themselves, are on hand to share the best practices and help newcomers to avoid potential pitfalls.”

And it doesn’t stop there - franchisees receive on-going support and advice, including choosing the perfect location, recruiting staff, marketing support and purchasing initial stock. Investment opportunities start from £125,000, plus financing where security is available.

Cash Converters celebrated its 20th year in the UK last year and has grown exponentially with 700 stores in 22 countries worldwide and 222 in the UK, confirming their position as the number one, there are many imitators but the Cash Converters brand is the most recognised on the High Street with an incredible 94% brand awareness amongst the population.

David Patrick, Chief Executive at Cash Converters, said: “David is an excellent franchisee and a great role model for those thinking of joining the Cash Converters network. David is held in very high regard and is a credit to the business. He, along with all our franchisees, helps Cash Converters to consistently perform to an exceptional level and aid the growth and success of the business.

“Cash Converters offers a place to shop for pre-owned bargains, sell unwanted goods for instant cash and provides a range of extremely popular personal financial services including pawnbroking, cheque cashing, laybys and buyback. These reinforce our position as a leading high street retailer which responds to the needs of its customers.
