2016 was Blo’s best year so far in terms of franchise sales. We closed with 23 new units sold, opened an additional 13 in the U.S and rang in the new year with a strong pipeline of prospective franchise partners.
A few highlights from our 2016 year:
Elaine & Jeremy
Originally from the UK, Elaine and Jeremy have joined Blo with a location in Mount Pleasant, NC. In addition, Jeremy is taking on the role of Blo’s first Area Representative, responsible for a territory that encompasses North Carolina (excluding Charlotte), South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.
Joining us from the Sunshine State, Ken opened our Jacksonville location! With a background in the television industry, Ken already had a taste of business ownership as the co-owner of a sports bar in Tampa.
Kerry hails from Wilmington, DE and has signed on for a 3-unit deal which includes Philadelphia. She is currently focusing on Wilmington, her first location.
Phil opened our first Arizona location in Scottsdale! Prior to inking the deal with Blo, Phil worked as an executive sales leader in the Pharmaceutical industry.
