MASTER FRANCHISEE OF THE YEAR 2008 AWARD
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT COSTAS AND OLIVIA WON CARD GROUPS AWARD, THE MASTER FRANCHISEE OF THE YEAR 2008 AWARD.
Costas and Olivia have in only 12 months from start, managed to build up a market position and a market organization on several markets. They have already reached an impressive number of 2000 shops with thousands of points of sale. There are a total of 50 people involved in their organization such as franchisees, sales people, sales managers, merchandisers, warehouse and office staff. They all work with passion and care so that excellent service is delivered to every single customer. The organization has worked in good compliance with the business concept with developments and improvements every day! High market activity including a lot of new chains and a dynamic sales management has highly contributed to a well performing market organization and good sales results.
THEY HAVE SIGNED agreements with so many chains that we can’t count them anymore. Among the chains are Hypermarkets, Supermarkets, Bookshops, Petrol stations, Post offices and many others.
IN CYPRUS WITH only 700.000 inhabitants they already have about 700 shops and central agreements with most of the chains including Supermarkets, Hypermarkets etc.
FOR ABOUT 2 MONTHS ago they started operating also in Bulgaria. They have succeeded with the same good sales there and quickly they signed about 150 shops in the capital Sofia. Included here are agreements with 2 big chains of Hypermarkets. Costas says that all are excellent shops. We are in the best positions in the center with 3, 4 spinners (gold, mini, king and bag spinners) in all shops. We will have 250 shops by the end of January in Sofia.
Costas/Olivia and their team of Franchisees, Sales people and Sales Managers always put in all products in all shops.
Many congratulations to Costas/Olivia and their team!
