Own-label products have helped One Stop’s franchise business achieve its 16th quarter of consecutive growth.

The company’s latest trading results for the quarter ending 28 February show its franchise business delivered quarterly growth in like-for-like sales (6.8%), average basket spend (5%) and volume of till transactions (11%).

One Stop head of marketing Nigel Prendergast said: “The breadth of the own-label range franchisees can stock is helping to drive positive like-for-like growth across multiple categories, while increasing their margins.

“Customers also love the range, quality and price – a combination that is proving to be successful.”
