"The Play N Trade business model is franchisee-based. We have no corporate-owned stores, and are dedicated to the success of our franchisees. The FAB will provide an open forum for franchisees to offer feedback and make recommendations that will contribute to the continued enhancement of training and support, and improvement of franchisee operations."
The initial board members were appointed by Lloyd, and include franchisees from each of the company's geographic regions. Play N Trade founder Ron Simpson and Tom Bozarth, Play N Trade president, will serve as corporate representatives. The franchisee members are: Jerry Abreu, Tucson, Ariz.; Jeremy Hix, Chubbuck, Idaho; Manuel Velez, Puerto Rico; Chris Anderson, Alexandria, Virginia.; Mike Alexander, Buford, Georgia.; and Bobby Chizen from Richmond, British Columbia.
"We believe that Play N Trade offers franchisees the best opportunity for success," Lloyd said. "They are backed by a strong corporate infrastructure, while maintaining the flexibility that enables them to be responsive to changing market demands and customer needs at the local level. The creation of the FAB is another venue for our franchisees to share ideas and innovations that will enable them to continue to deliver the ultimate customer experience to everyone who walks through their doors, from hard core gamers to casual players, to moms and dads looking for recommendations on what games to buy for their kids."
