Currently seeking “agents and distributors” to assist in expansion.
Remanufacturing franchise Cartridge World has announced an expansion into Africa, and is looking for agents, distributors and developers for assistance, How We Made It In Africa has discussed in a promotional feature.
The expansion has been prompted by a growth in the region’s PC market, which Cartridge World predicts will lead to an increase in printed documents and thusly in ink and toner cartridges.
Several advantages Cartridge World claim for franchisees include a “lower risk of failure/ high potential for growth”, “strong brand recognition and admin support” and “you are in business for yourself – but not by yourself”.
“Suitable individuals/companies” may also have the opportunity to be”develop retail stores and a distribution network as a ‘developer’ for a country or territory”.
