The Franchise operating model in Pick n Pay expands across the footprint of the brand by introducing dynamic entrepreneurs into the company to trade their stores within the various communities around the country as Pick n Pay entrusts the franchisees with the brand in various formats, Family Supermarkets, Mini Markets, PnP Express & Market stores depending on the operational environment.
The strategy for future sustainability is to be the best FMCG franchise model in the country and to create a lucrative partnership with the franchisees, which is needed to keep the business model relevant for PnP, the franchisees and most importantly, the customers.
Store Operations is the life blood of our business. This is where our customers are, where it all happens!
Store management is about being hands on, constantly leading and directing store operations from the floor where it’s all happening. Ensuring each store achieves our trading standards also means putting in hours before the customers arrive and after the store has closed. And of course this happens seven days a week!
