Tesco-owned convenience store chain One Stop has announced the departure of its franchise boss Andrew King.
King is largely responsible for pioneering One Stop’s franchise operation, overseeing its growth from inception in 2013 to its current 165-store estate.
Head of franchise operations Jonathan Miller will now take his place, after joining alongside King in 2013 when the franchising began.
Prior to his role at One Stop, King spent three years in as retail operations director and group strategic operations director at Costcutter.
His departure comes as Tesco gets ready to merge with Booker, which owns rival convenience store brands Budgens and Londis.
“Our One Stop business remains a key part of our retail offer and our franchise business has gone from strength to strength since 2014,” a Tesco spokesman said.
“We’re currently making a series of changes to our service model across Tesco to further simplify our business, and our One Stop franchises will now be supported by John Miller.
“We are very grateful for the work Andrew has done over the last three years, and we look forward to building on these achievements.”
