abc markets plans 160 franchise offices
The business network, abc markets, has signed an agreement with a new partner who will be running his business in the German city of Munich. This means that the network now consists of eight partners in Germany - with a further six people currently undergoing training - and seven partners in Austria. Its long-term aim is to have set up a group of 160 regional offices.
By setting up B2B market areas, abc markets provides SMEs with a wide range of services to enable them to stand up to international competition by combining e-commerce solutions with standardised Internet shops. According to abc markets, there are already more than 2,000 firms from 360 branches using this Internet platform. The franchisees work as independent regional business partners with each region containing around 20,000 firms. "The ideal franchise candidate is a communicative person with a pioneering spirit and business skills," explained Dr Konrad Schmidt, founder of abc markets.
abc markets is a member of both the Austrian and German Franchise Associations. The system, which was founded in Austria, is currently aiming to launch its network into other European countries and is especially on the look-out for master partners in the Benelux countries, France, Italy, Spain, Finland, Greece, Ireland and Portugal.
