Greetings card publisher The Original Poster Company is seeking focused prospective franchisees to purchase re-sale territories - established franchises operating as going concerns. Available territories include North Wales, Stockport, Cumbria, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Plymouth and Suffolk.
'We are looking for franchisees with drive and energy,' says The Original Poster Company National Sales Manager Phil Harrison. 'As all of our UK territories were covered by 1993, only re-sales are now available. We need new franchisees to build on the existing business and make it more profitable by increasing volume sales. While there is an income from day one, this is not an investment for those looking to simply buy an income. We want people to develop the area to increase the profitability and increase the capital asset worth.
'All of our franchisees have access to training and support. Initially they are put on a seven-day course, which covers operations, sales, merchandising and existing store development. After this, there are regional franchisee meetings to assess what ongoing training is required and to help iron out any problems or difficulties. Each franchisee also has a Business Development Manager who helps them with any aspect of the franchise they need help with in making them successful.'
