Launches Unique Franchise Opportunity, part of the Avenir Telecom Group, the leading European telecoms provider, has launched a major new recruiting programme for business franchise owners, with opportunities throughout the UK. Franchise owners will be working to support small and medium businesses (1-250 employees), in their local community, in navigating the minefield of telecoms and tariffs, enabling them to invest in the right mobile phone and telecoms package.

Research undertaken by the company shows that 91% of all small to medium sized businesses are on the wrong tariff and in fact some don’t even know that massive savings can be made from being on a business tariff and so just pop along to their local phone outlet and have invested in consumer tariffs which are costly to a business.

The launch of the franchise business is extremely timely, as with current unemployment in the UK running at 8.3% (2.65 million individuals) many people are considering the option of starting their own business, and estimates that by operating one of their franchises, dedicated individuals can earn in excess of £100,000 per annum from one operational area alone.

Although a new venture in itself, is owned by Avenir Telecom UK Limited (winner of Mobile’s Best Airtime Distributor Award in 2012 & 2011), which for over 23 years has been one of Europe’s largest distributors of mobile phones, airtime subscriptions and accessories.

Franchise owners need to be self-motivated and business-minded, but do not need any prior experience in the telecommunications industry, as they will have the full support of Avenir Telecom behind them. This enables to offer many fantastic benefits for franchise owners, such as all the processing being carried out by Avenir Telecom’s team, leaving the franchise owner free to concentrate on sourcing new customers. Other benefits include commission earned for every purchase made by customers in their franchise area, ongoing training, exceptional marketing support with toolkit, full use of the CRM system, and continuous technical support.

Andy Tow, Managing Director, comments: “This is an extremely exciting franchise opportunity and Avenir Telecom is delighted to be able to support local communities with this business venture. We have been operating in the mobile telecoms industry for decades and so we have the knowledge and experience to help and support a franchise owner to launch and grow their business.”
