Daily Life of a Franchisee

Franchisees typically work from home, but some larger franchisees operate from small business units, employing a few staff and having 2 or more vans on the road. Franchisees purchase geographical territories and provide bespoke card displays to over 12,000 retailers across the UK & Ireland using our custom-made IPad system. These retailers are largely convenience outlets, and approximately 65% of this business comes through National Accounts such as Spar, BP, Budgens, WH Smith, and Londis.
