RISMEDIA, November 22, 2010—PODS Enterprises, Inc. recently opened the corporation’s first franchise location in the United Kingdom. The company, which now operates in the U.S., Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, has experienced steady growth and expansion over the past several years. The newest PODS franchise, located in Leeds, England, will serve the moving and storage needs of residents and businesses throughout the West Yorkshire region.
“It is exciting to introduce the unique PODS moving and storage concept to England,” said Jeremy Bradburn, owner of the PODS Leeds franchise. “The initial reaction by residents and business owners in Leeds has been very positive, and we anticipate business to increase steadily as the word spreads.”
“We are excited to announce the opening of our first franchise in the United Kingdom,” said Christine Pierce, chief marketing officer of PODS. “Our continued global expansion is a testament to PODS’ strong brand name and product features. Our business model offers consumers and businesses highly convenient and flexible moving and storage options and continues to gain interest from potential franchisees from around the globe.”
In support of the local “Radio Aire & Magic 828’s Cash for Kids Christmas Toy Appeal,” PODS Leeds has volunteered to help with the collection, storage and transportation of donated toys for sick and underprivileged children. “Cash for Kids” is the umbrella brand for Bauer Radio’s network of independently registered local charities, which operate across 20 local areas within the UK.
“We are thrilled that PODS Leeds opened just in time to help with this year’s Radio Aire & Magic 828’s Cash for Kids Toy Appeal,” said Jo Hardcastle, Cash for Kids Charity Manager. “It is wonderful to see a new business owner jump right in to support the local community.”
