This is as important a milestone for PlayNTrade as it is for me, in the sense that it really seals our relationship and focuses our goals in developing and establishing PNT as the leader in Canada in the wonderful and superfast growing market that is video game entertaiment. There is no question that PNT offers the very best franchise opportunity in this market, and the best experience for gamers. We are a young and sharp company, we move fast and adapt rapidly to changes in technology and business trends. We truly have every answer to all the needs that a gaming customer and frachisees might have because we are gamers and business people ourselves. With Tom McMahon (more than 8 years as VP for Starbucks and years with Activision prior to that) as our CEO, Tony Gillette (18 years with EBGames from store manager up to VP of development for California) and John Scales (VP western US development with Blockbusters and Hollywood video) to name just a few of our senior corporate team of more than 50 peoples. All our team including our founders members who are still actively working with our franchisees, are bringing several undreads of years of various business experience on the table. Our franchisees really are in great hands to get all the help that they need in order to achieve their personal goals.
As of September 2008, PNT Canada will be truly operational and distinct from it's US brother. Our store build-out, franchisee training, games, accessories and systems, printing material, signage etc. will all come from Canadian base vendors. We are really going to be 100% Canadian !
There is really no better time than now to get in the game! We already have nearly 600 franchisees and 175 stores open throughout North America. With stores opening almost every day. 2 stores open in Canada, 5 mores to come in the coming weeks and 25 within the next 12 months, no wonder we are the fastest growing franchise at the moment. It's simply because we have the best franchise model and a truly proven receipee for success.
