Scottish retailer confident in new One Stop partnership

29 October 2015

Javid and Shaista Iqbal, husband and wife who have been retailers for 20 years, contacted One Stop wanting to enhance their customer offer within a very competitive market-place in Scotland.

After careful consideration, and time spent visiting other One Stop Franchise stores in England, Javid and Shaista had confidence in the One Stop model, the family were ready to invest in their store and make some significant changes improving the offer for customers, but wanted to invest at the right time with a long term partner, and One Stop is it.

Their investment, along with £50,000 from One Stop has enabled them to add new chillers, extend the store, re-site the tills, put in a new floor, shelving and shop front. The store has very quickly taken on an amazing ‘look and feel’.

Javid commented on the new partnership; ‘We felt our customer offer was a little tired and we needed something different to help grow our business. We looked at lots of different options, but One Stop stood out from the crowd with their great pricing, strong promotions and great meal solutions for customers; including a lunchtime meal deal at £3, and an evening meal solution at £6. We believe in One Stop and the team behind the brand, they will help us grow.’

John Miller, Head of Operations for One Stop Franchise commented;
‘I’m really proud to be working with Javid and his family helping them reinvigorate and transform their business. One Stop has brought something new and fresh to Scotland. We are different from the competition with retail knowledge and understanding at our core, meaning we can bring a strong proposition that is tailored for their customers.’

‘We have received incredible interest in our Franchise model since opening our first three Franchisee’s and two company operated stores in Scotland. We are really excited about the opportunity, and the scope this gives our business in the future.’
