InXpress is transforming the lives of its franchisees while fostering a strong, international network.
The past year has highlighted the benefit of being a ‘recessionproof’ business owner – particularly one who has the ongoing support and guidance of an established, cutting-edge franchisor.
For the 380-plus (and counting) franchisees that make up the InXpress international network, this guidance has proved invaluable. While countless start-ups, unfortunately, fail within their first five years of operation, many of InXpress’ talented franchisees have done nothing but thrive from the moment their feet hit the ground.
“For those willing to give it their all in delivering, and going that extra mile, there is a lot of opportunity out there”
A FAMILY AFFAIR
This includes franchisees like Stuart Vant, who joined InXpress while looking for a fresh start in his career. He identified the brand as a solid investment and one that would support his growth with a firm sense of energy and drive.
“The InXpress formula really works,” says Vant. “For those willing to give it their all in delivering, and going that extra mile, there is a lot of opportunity out there. Their in-house systems for tracking deliveries and sending invoices means we can focus on what is most important – keeping customers happy.”
Within just 18 months, Vant has become one of the network’s fastest-growing franchisees. In that time, he has brought his daughter, Chloe, and son, David, onboard as members of his Cambridge team.
“Chloe got straight out there, speaking to as many people as possible,” says Vant. “She showed, from day one, InXpress was prepared to go the extra mile for them.”
INDUSTRY-LEADING LOGISTICAL TECH
For entrepreneurs wanting to walk down a similar franchising path as Stuart Vant, InXpress provides the opportunity to connect with a global network of shipping and logistics experts. Your new business will provide customers with the competitive shipping they can rely on, and you’ll be able to utilize InXpress’ industry-leading technology, developed to make managing your business, your staff, and customers, easier to achieve.
A specific background in logistics isn’t required, though having experience in sales, or employing a strong sales-minded team, can make a considerable difference in how quickly a franchisee’s network grows.
To recognize leading talent within its network, InXpress also awards its top ten “Top Gun” franchisees as part of an annual celebration of excellence.
Five are recognized for their high margins within the network, with a further five awarded for their rapid growth.
In addition, InXpress’ “Young Guns” program has been established to provide anyone leaving university with the means to start their own business.
By providing extra supporting and mentoring for up-and-coming young entrepreneurs who join the network, InXpress has helped a number of school and college leavers achieve their ambitions.
Put simply: no matter your background, if you have the drive and passion to grow, then InXpress’ recession-proof, reliable model is a solid pathway to success.
