Recognition Express latest franchise owner launches business

Recognition Express, a franchise that specialises in supplying printed products, appealed to its latest franchise owner because it offers a wide range of possible markets and customer availability. Ian Marshall, who previously worked for 20 years in the gas industry, has bought the Recognition Express franchise for Wolverhampton and Telford.

Ian said: 'I have always wanted to work for myself and taking voluntary redundancy has given me the opportunity to take the leap now.'

After researching into the franchises available, Ian decided that Recognition Express offered the best opportunity for growth and is well suited to his sales experience. Ian added: 'Recognition Express is a well established franchise, which offers such a wide range of products and there are so many possible markets and customers. That's especially important in such a tough climate.

'I have conducted a 'market walkabout', knocking on the doors of local businesses and I believe I can help these organisations promote themselves in a cost effective way.'

Nigel Toplis, Managing Director of Recognition Express, commented: 'Recognition Express is in the business of helping companies in Wolverhampton and Telford area to promote themselves and keep their businesses competitive during this difficult economic climate. Ian is a real go-getter and has a great rapport with customers. I have no doubt that he will be successful and he can rely on the support of our organisation, which recently celebrated 30 years in business.'
