The World Options franchise opportunity

With over 80 franchises, World Options is one of the most successful franchise opportunities in the UK.

We offer small to medium businesses a world-class parcel delivery service through our online shipping portal. We’ve partnered with the world’s leading carriers such as UPS, TNT, DHL and FedEx to provide our customers with multiple shipping rates; we help customers save time and money.

We provide our franchisees with everything they need to launch, build and manage client’s courier and shipping needs for UK or International shipments by Road, Rail, Sea, or Air.

When you become a franchise owner, your aim will be to find new business customers to use the online portal. You build relationships with them and demonstrate how they can place orders online. Once this is done the business is encouraged to activate an account and they instantly become your client. You look after them and the system does the rest. The more parcels your client ships through the online portal, the more money you make.

The World Options business model is scaleable. Half of our franchisees run their business from home.  However, as the business grows you can choose to move to a small remote office.
