Vodafone UK’s partner agent programme opens up to new entrepreneurs

August 16, 2018

  • Vodafone UK Partner Agent Programme celebrates first trading year and opens up to new entrepreneurs from outside the business.
  • 35 stores are now live with this unique franchising approach, with 100 Partner Agent stores forecasted by April, 2019 

Vodafone UK is now offering entrepreneurs from both within the business and outside of it the chance to franchise their own store as part of our Partner Agent Programme. The programme first went live in August 2017, where the scheme focussed on offering Vodafone employees the opportunity to transition from operator to owner – giving them the ability to take control and make decisions for their own stores.

As of today, there are 35 stores with Partner Agents and they are consistently delivering above forecasted growth and teaching Vodafone new ways of thinking. That is why we are now opening the programme to entrepreneurs from outside of Vodafone – giving them the chance to become a Partner Agent with one of the biggest and most recognised brands in the UK.

New Partner Agent stores have opened in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Walsall, Lancaster, Bangor and Newton Abbey in the last month. Vodafone UK is looking to have 100 Partner Agent stores by April, 2019.
