Fonehouse to target store managers to become franchisees
Fonehouse will target store managers at retail chains to become franchisees as it attempts to open one store every week for the remainder of 2009.
The franchise business has lured small independent dealers so far, but is now turning to high-quality store managers wanting to become entrepreneurs.
Some store managers are likely to be reluctant to quit their jobs in light of current economic instability, but managing director Clive Bayley said: ‘It’s never going to be a cheaper time to make the jump. Recession is the best time to go forward in your career. We will support and mentor them, but it’s a case of who dares wins.’
