Shining a light on and awarding young UK retailers

One Stop Franchisees approaching the industry with a fresh mindset.

In November it was revealed that two of One Stop’s franchisees had won RN 30 under Thirty awards, which are now celebrating their third year of highlighting young achievers in the convenience industry. The selection of winners is decided based on sales figures, profits, growth, showcasing of new ideas, innovative cost saving methods and overall character.

The two winners from One Stop Franchise were: Nathan Whiteside, with stores in Rhyl and Prestatyn (Wales), and Anish Panchmatia, with a store in Wylde Green (England).
