Despite the high street having faced turbulent times Vodafone has announced they are to open 24 new franchise stores creating 100 jobs.
Vodafone will boost their retail presence on the high street which will involve around £5.5m of investment.
Currently the mobile phone business has more than 400 retail stores throughout the UK, the company has added an additional 50 stores so far this year, and is looking to open another 50 during 2020.
Nick Jeffery, UK chief executive of Vodafone said, “As a business with its roots in the UK, we are keen to do what we can to help local communities, whether that is giving local entrepreneurs the opportunity to be their own boss of a retail store or extending our network to remote areas.
“New services have helped us become the fastest-growing home broadband provider this year and attract thousands of new mobile customers every week.
“With this momentum, we are looking to extend our high street presence so that we can provide face-to-face advice and support to even more customers.”
