[Open for Franchising Applications] Nextford Retail Co.

About us
Founded in Flavezztowland City in 1925 with a single department store, Nextford Retail's reach has since expanded to other cities and towns in Rhim Flavezztowland. Domestically, we currently have 56 department stores (30 under the mid-to-high-end Nextford Department Store banner and 26 under the low-to-mid-end MQX banner), 60 supermarkets (all under the nMart banner), and more under our portfolio.

We're currently looking to further expand our reach beyond our home country of Rhim Flavezztowland via franchisees, so if you want to operate a department store, supermarket, etc. on our behalf, you've come to the right place.



Our brands


ImageNextford Department Store
As the standard for mid-to-high-end department stores in Rhim Flavezztowland, it all started when partners Richard J. Next and James H. Ford founded a department store in downtown Flavezztowland City in 1925. Since then, multiple Nextford Department Stores have popped up elsewhere domestically, but our flagship Nextford Department Store's still the original one in downtown Flavezztowland City!
ImageMQX
First established in 2001 in western Flavezztowland City, our MQX-branded department stores follow former CEO Jennifer Singh's "hip lifestyle concept in a department store" formula. This means that they follow three principles: trendiness, affordability (low-to-mid-end goods only!), and communality.
ImagenMart
Of course, supermarkets are vital to Flavezztowlander communities, which is why we opened the first ever Nextford Mart (now nMart) in eastern Flavezztowland City in 1992. nMarts offer what you'd expect from a supermarket: lots of groceries and certain household stuff.



Our loyalty program
Image
Since 1989, our Nextford Ribbon Club loyalty program has been registered to by more than 2,500,000 different customers. Although we've been issuing physical loyalty cards at our department stores since our loyalty program began, we started issuing digital loyalty cards in 2014, due to the rising popularity of NFC technologies. We offer all of our Nextford Ribbon Club members six tiers of benefits: Basic Red (upon joining the program), Silver Plus (after gaining 1,000 Ribbon Points), Gold Pro (after gaining 5,000 Ribbon Points), Platinum Pro Plus (after gaining 10,000 Ribbon Points), and Elite Diamond (after gaining 25,000 Ribbon Points).



Applications sought for international franchising
As mentioned earlier, we're seeking international expansion via franchisees. Thus, the question is: "How can potential franchisees apply to operate stores on behalf of Nextford Retail?"

Dear Sir/Madam,

Application for international franchising
Company name: National Economic Development Outreach Program
Nation of origin: United Socialist States of Shiatoru
Which of our brands would you like to be a franchisee of in your nation of origin?: Nextford Department Store [x] / MQX [x] / nMart [x]
How many stores under the brands you selected would you like to operate on our behalf?: 50 each on probation. 250 for Nextford and MQX and 500 for nMart once probation is passed.
Any other comments?: By law, all stores operating in Shiatoru will be required to be run by a worker's collective overseen by the Department of Labor and any relevant local guilds as defined by local laws. Initial operation is probationary--after one month of operation, you will be subject to a Department of Labor inspection to ensure all stores meet worker's and consumer's rights standards. If this inital inspection is passed, you will be approved for further operation in Shiatoru. If it is failed, further stores will be declined and the existing stores will be closed.
The United Socialist States of Shiatoru
A democratic socialist republic situated on an island-continent in the Pacific about the size of the US West Coast. Population of 52 million, mostly a mix of American and Japanese descent. Fervent and proud of their ideology. Does not use NS stats. MT with a low level of FanT that is designed to be ignored or embraced at the other party's discretion--think urban fantasy world.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your application to become one of Nextford Retail Co.'s international franchisees.

Although we've accepted your application and, as requested, sent you the necessary materials needed to operate your first 50 branches of each of our three brands, since your nation of origin's laws require probationary initial operations for a month, we expect you to meet Shiatoruan worker's and consumer's rights standards for your first month as a Nextford Retail Co. franchisee.

Yours faithfully,
The Franchising Department

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your application to become one of Nextford Retail Co.'s international franchisees.

Unfortunately, as we don't currently accept international franchising offers from government construction agencies, we've rejected your application.

We regret any inconvenience this rejection may have caused.

Yours faithfully,
The Franchising Department
