Apollo sales stars travel to Monaco

The Apollo Blinds franchise announced recently that its star sellers have enjoyed a trip to Monaco after topping the company’s sales league. According to the information provided, eight franchise owners from stores in Glasgow, Cardiff, Stirling, Salisbury, Chatham, Harrow, Perth and Kirkcaldy were presented with this trip to the Mediterranean principality.

The franchise company runs an annual incentive scheme as a way of boosting sales and this year it was a significant factor in keeping the business in a healthy position, according to general manager Gary Chambers: “The trip to Monaco symbolised everything that is good about the network of franchise owners we have at Apollo Blinds,” he said. “All Apollo Blinds stores deserve a medal for surviving the last 18 months. Many of our businesses have been over performing in the current climate and have delivered great sales in what has been a very challenging time and they deserve to be recognised for their achievements and reap the rewards. All of those businesses that went to Monaco traded very well thus proving that sales are there for the taking.”

Tony and Julie Holt from Chatham, Kent, typify the desire of Apollo Blinds franchise owners to generate business. “We will have maximised every opportunity within our franchise network,” said Julie. “We have even done promotions using loss leaders as part of a campaign to continually get us in front of customers and keep the name Apollo Blinds upmost in the minds of local people."

Chambers added that as well as stimulating sales, the incentives had proved popular and created friendly rivalry within the network from franchise owners vying with each other to book their seats on the plane. He said: “A lot of stores were neck and neck for months and those that missed out this time have stated their intention to double their efforts for next year’s trip where we hope to take our star sellers somewhere in the States.” (kbp)
