The future is bright for Embroidme, the World’s largest branded apparel and promotional products group. Not only did Embroidme recently celebrate 10 years in New Zealand, but the group continues to grow at a great rate, by store numbers, and more importantly, in their individual achievements. At this year’s Embroidme conference, seven stores came away with prestigious sales awards which recognise outstanding sales achievements and overall business success.

Embroidme New Zealand CEO, Grant Archibald, commented that it is great to recognise these accomplishments amongst the group, and the best news was every store grew in sales over the past year.

This year’s national conference was held at the Waipuna Conference Centre in Auckland, hosting franchisees from around New Zealand. There were a variety of presentations, workshops and networking functions, with guest speakers from New Zealand and around the globe.

Embroidme is the world’s largest branded apparel franchise with close to 350 outlets in 15 countries. Since commencing franchising in 2001, Embroidme has become the world leader in branded apparel and promotional products.

New Zealand’s pilot store was launched in 2006 by Grant and Sarah Archibald, New Zealand master licensees for Embroidme and Speedy Signs. Not having come from the industry it was important that they knew the business inside out, so that once they began franchising they were able to give support to the franchisees. Once franchising commenced it gained momentum very quickly. There are now 12 locations from Auckland to Dunedin giving the brand national coverage.
