Subaru UK is hosting an open house franchising event at its Birmingham head office as it prepares to expand its dealer network with new franchisees.
The brand, which is imported to the UK by the IM Group, is keen to expand its dealer network further, following growth of 5.5% year on year.
Attendees to the franchising event, which will take place on May 30, will have the opportunity to meet senior executives, understand the brand values and discuss franchise opportunities.
Chris Graham, managing director for Subaru UK, said: “We’re looking forward to meeting new businesses and prospective franchisees at our Subaru open house. The brand has enjoyed growth in 2018 and we’re looking to continue this by finding new partners to develop our network, where open points are available.”
Subaru UK enjoyed a strong start to 2018, surpassing first quarter targets by 19% and appointing four new franchisees.
The open house is aimed at prospective franchisees that are actively looking to partner with a new vehicle manufacturer in the near future.
Claire Ketchion, dealer development manager for Subaru UK, added: “We’re looking for businesses that want to work with us to grow the brand and proactively engage with the public on all things Subaru. It’s an exciting time for the brand, especially following the success of the all-new XV earlier this year”.
Due to the nature of the event, attendees must contact Subaru UK directly to book their place.
