Subaru UK is planning an open house event for prospective franchisees. The meetings will take place at the company’s offices in Birmingham on 30 May.
The Subaru Open House will give attendees the opportunity to meet senior executives and become more familiar with brand values, while also discussing franchise opportunities.
Subaru UK has reported 5.5% year-on-year growth and hopes to support continued success through expansion of its dealer network. In addition, the brand surpassed Q1 2018 targets by 19%, while also reporting a high number of forward orders for Q2.
These figures were supported by the launch of the all-new XV wagon, which is based on the new Subaru Global Platform. The model was originally introduced in 2012 to replace the out-going Legacy.
Prospective franchisees are invited to join the Subaru UK event to learn more about the Japanese brand, well-known for its safety, reliability and capability. Like other models, the XV features the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. The XV and Impreza were named Euro NCAP’s Best In Class Safest Small Family Car of 2017, while the XV received a high commendation in the Safety category at the WhatCar? annual awards.
Chris Graham, MD of Subaru UK, commented: “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.”
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.”
Prospective attendees for the open house are asked to register in advance with Subaru UK.
