Sprint pushes dealer franchises in bid to double number of outlets
B2b dealer Sprint Communications is hoping to double its dealer franchise scheme over the next year.
Sprint, which has offered a franchise programme for the past 10 years, is in talks to grow the scheme from 17 outlets to 34.
Sprint MD Paul Leonard is offering businesses that join the scheme ongoing monthly revenue payments. The company connects all the networks and has been in business since 1991.
Mike Gray recently joined Sprint to concentrate on providing ecommerce platforms for franchisees.
Leonard said: ‘The franchise scheme is another way to achieve good profit and revenue streams. We have quite good network relationships and it is a logical progression for us.’
