One Stop now has 100 franchise stores just 15 months since the full roll-out of the operation.

The 100th store to sign up to the franchise model is located in the Midlands and will be undergoing its transformation within the next two months.

The store’s exact location is being kept under wraps until the full refit has been completed.

One Stop says it has attracted well over 2,000 enquiries about its franchise scheme, including more than 100 from independent retailers in Scotland, as the group prepares for an imminent launch north of the border.

Andrew King, One Stop franchise director, said: “Six months on from our first major milestone and we’re delighted to hit the 100 mark. We have a passionate team of retail experts within franchise and they’re helping to deliver some great results for our franchisees.

“It’s a tough market out there, but our focus on driving sales and profits, helping retailers to cut costs and make their day to day operations much simpler, is showing through on their bottom line. We have a great set of retailers, who know that they have input in how we develop – and because we do things differently, we have great fun in the process. It’s been a fantastic year for us so far.”
