Leading international courier and parcel delivery franchise, World Options, is pleased to announce the arrival of new franchise owner Richard Ormerod who will be taking over the Manchester franchise.

“As a young man, not yet hitting 30 years of age and with my first child on the way, even thinking about starting a business was a daunting prospect but one I have always longed to do,” said Ormerod. “Franchising has given me the opportunity to embark on this journey and, with a proven model, World Options has nurtured my drive to succeed while ensuring that I can be a husband and a father at the same time.

“I’ve been told many times that you will never be 100 per cent ready when your first child arrives, however I am confident that my drive and determination coupled with the support of World Options, this franchise will give my wife and I both the financial stability and flexibility we need to raise our family together.”
