Fonehouse on target for franchise goal of 50 stores
Independent retailer Fonehouse looks set to reach its goal of 50 franchise stores by the end of 2009.
The retailer has direct relationships with T-Mobile and Vodafone and has created 47 franchises since it launched the scheme in May 2008. It is planning to launch a further 50 stores in 2010.
Fonehouse commercial manager Daniel Schama said: ‘The interesting thing about those coming back to us now is that they are the people who we first talked to six months ago. Sometimes people need time to raise the money and get the paperwork together.’
The retailer may be looking to recruit new staff in the New Year.
