The area covers all the Durham, Tees, and Darlington postcodes, providing a mix of large towns and cities alongside some beautiful villages and countryside. This area is well spread geographically and demographically so it provides a very stable base and despite the recent recession sales have remained steady.
“The number of retailers I already sell to is a solid base to build on, but there are plenty of untapped outlets who could take the increasing range of OPC cards. The quality is always a winner, and when they find they only pay for cards after they have sold them they see how easy it is to take a stand.” Malcolm & Jill Massey, Exiting Franchisees
