Welcome to our fourth edition of the #morethansport newsletter.

At the heart of any successful national franchise network is having clear and two way communication. It is vital that all the good stuff our franchisees are enjoying and the challenges faced are shared so that everyone benefits. This is why Premier has Franchisee Champions situated across the UK who facilitate regular regional network meetings. This format is great for sharing best practice, practical tips and for Premier to let the network know of future developments.

Ben Pattenden is our Franchisee Champion for the South East as well as a Premier Sport franchisee operating the Kent territory. Please take some time to see what he has to say.

Kind Regards,

Phil Gaffer
Business Development Director
