Franchisees explain the benefits of working with us

Mark Hopton

    Mark joined EE in 2010 following nearly a decade of experience in the telecommunications industry. Mark’s technical and business knowledge led his first store, in Grantham, to be named Franchise of the Year in 2012. This entrepreneurial spirit and trust in the EE brand has led him to extend his business to nine stores, and saw Mark and his team win Franchise of the Year again in 2014.

    “I have really enjoyed the last few years running my own EE franchise, so much that I am willing to invest further and extend my operation. This is the first franchise operation that I have run but through my business acumen and my keen interest in the mobile phone industry I have managed to run a very successful and profitable EE franchise. It was a great achievement for me to have my store named Franchise of the Year in 2012 and I look forward to building on that achievement going forward.”

    Amir Mashkoor

    Amir operates eight EE franchise stores and has been involved with franchising for nearly a decade. Before joining EE as a franchisee in 2011, he owned 25 Subway restaurants in the Greater London area. Amir has a hands-on management approach, like all of our franchisees, and plays an active role in the development and running of his stores. His creative nature and business experience have seen him develop his London-based store into not only a high performing business - continuously achieving some of the best figures in the business - but also looking outside of the retail store environment to explore other ways to expand his operation.

    “Franchising with EE is so much more than just simply owning a profitable retail store. You are buying into a business, a brand and a culture. As a franchise owner, it is important to constantly be looking for diverse and innovative ways in which to ensure your business grows and develops. Franchising with EE offers the perfect opportunity to an entrepreneur as you have the power of the successful and powerful EE brand behind you to help make your ideas become a qualified success.”
