If you’re a current franchisee of Unishippers, a small package and freight shipping reseller, are you feeling as hot as a bucket of fresh lava right about now? Or, are you cool with what your corporate office has decided to do with your franchise model?
The reason I ask is because of a word that’s rather important in franchise circles. The word;
And, as a Unishipper franchise owner, you purchased one, right? (A protected one, I assume?)
“Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC, the nation’s first and one of the largest small package and freight shipping resellers, is now rolling out its new national franchise model without geographic boundaries. After selling out all of its original available geographic-based territories, it is modifying the concept of ‘territories,’ allowing existing and new franchisees to serve b2b customers anywhere in the country.”
Now, if I was a Unishippers franchisee, I wouldn’t be a happy camper, today. I think.
But, in all fairness, I don’t know what’s been going on at corporate headquarters. Maybe things are hunky-dory. Maybe, Unishippers has some of the happiest franchisees on this side of the Earth. Maybe, there were lots of high-level meetings between the franchise executives and the franchisees, and it’s really a win-win. I just don’t know.
But, this sure is an ugly press release.
If you’re a Unishippers franchise owner, heck, if you’re the CEO of Unishippers, and you’re reading this franchise blog post, maybe you’ll chime in, and let me know.
