Bishop’s Move holds annual Franchise Conference

May 31, 2017
Bishop’s Move held its annual Franchise Conference at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club, on 28 February, 2017

The event, which played host to Bishop’s Move’s extensive franchise network, provided an opportunity to review areas of the business and discuss objectives and strategies for 2017/2018. After the meeting, held in the Vialli Suite, the attendees were given a guided tour of Chelsea Football Club.

Bishop’s Move has a network of 11 franchises operating across the UK and all were represented at the event.

Lead by Bishop’s Move’s Managing Director, Al Bingle, the Franchise Conference featured talks from Bishop’s Move’s senior management team and a ‘Question and Answer’ session.

Al Bingle said, “We continue to see the success of our business model and now this success is being shared by an increasing number of franchisees. When selecting a franchisee, we look for service levels, membership of BAR and family businesses with a similar philosophy to ours. It was fantastic to have another well-attended and positive franchise forum and I would like to thank the attendees for their ongoing commitment. We very much look forward to putting the plans discussed into action over the forthcoming months.’’

Expansion of vehicle fleet

2017 has seen the continuation of the expansion of the Bishop’s Move vehicle fleet with a number of newly acquired vehicles within the franchise network. This additional fleet complements the company's previous £1.2 million investment in 2015 in 13 custom-built Ryder DAF vehicles across its national branch network.

The new franchise fleet includes vehicles at Bishop’s Move Cardiff, Cornwall, Farnborough, Newcastle, Norwich and the West Midlands. All the vehicles have Bishop’s Move’s distinctive full yellow livery.

The decision to expand comes as a direct result of additional business secured across the group and coincided with the company’s recent Head Office relocation to spacious new offices in Surbiton, Surrey.
