Easy Living Mobility has awarded its debut franchise business, marking the first step of its ambitious plan to establish a network of retail franchises across the UK.
Tom Skelding will run a newly opened franchise store in the Wulfrun Centre in Wolverhampton, giving Easy Living Mobility even better coverage of the region.
The opening means that Easy Living Mobility now has a store roughly every 10 miles in the city, encircling the Birmingham area.
The mobility group unveiled its plans just three months ago and has been pushing its franchise model, attending various exhibitions to meet with potential partners.
Franchise development manager, Darren Legg, said that the company was “proud and excited” to announce its first franchisee and said that Skelding brings a wealth of knowledge of the mobility industry.
Legg said: “I believe that having achieved this award so soon after we launched our franchise package clearly demonstrates that we have a great opportunity available for anyone wishing to have the freedom and earning potential of being their own boss combined with the fantastic support offered by everyone within the business to help them to achieve this.”
Easy Living Mobility is designing its network to be different to current franchise models in the mobility market. Its franchise model is based on reflecting the core trading principles, strategies and brand image Easy Living Mobility has built over the last 18 years.
Founder and owner, Daniel Griffiths, said the new model is “structured enough but dynamic enough” to thrive in today’s mobility industry.
The group is now seeking new franchise partners who want to run their own business with the support of the established mobility equipment retailer.
