“The new Super Platinum scheme rewards franchisees who reach a specified turnover threshold," explains Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. “We wanted to ‘make a difference’ to our leading franchisees and to recognise the hard work and effort they put in. Under the new scheme, ‘Super Platinum’ franchisees receive bonus payments in-line with the growth of their businesses.
“Despite some particularly tough economic times in Ireland lately, our franchisees from that region are the forerunners of our network,” confirms Johnson. “However, we also have several other franchisees in the UK coming close and our staff will be on-hand to try and help them achieve this goal, so they too can claim the additional bonuses on offer.
“As a company, we aim to ‘make a difference’ for franchisees, retail customers and our own staff alike, on a daily basis,” confirms Johnson. “The new Super Platinum scheme is an innovative example of this philosophy in practice and we will be proud to assist other franchisees to attain this status.”
