One Stop is launching a new messaging app to help its franchisees communicate more freely with each other.

Called “Slack” the new app will enable retailers to share initiatives, celebrate success and communicate with the One Stop Franchise central office team quickly and easily.

The app, which has been trialled by One Stop Franchise Forum members, follows the success of a similar scheme in One Stop company stores.

John Miller, head of operations for One Stop Franchise said: “We use a similar platform in our company stores which has seen great engagement and we felt it was only right to offer a similar system to our franchisees.

“It’s a great tool where franchisees can share good ideas and listen to each other’s successes and then implement them in their stores; learning all of the time,” he added.
