Prontaprint & Kall Kwik owner ODC in Administration

Kall Kwik and Prontaprint franchise owner ODC went into administration on Monday. Jamison revealed that she has joined forces with ODC finance director Roger Baker to purchase the Prontaprint brand and intellectual property from the company’s administrators. ODC’s administrators are also believed to be in discussions with interested parties over the Kall Kwik brand. Jamison said: “The ODC Group has been financially stretched for a number of years, with a high level of debt, and it went into administration yesterday. “We think the Prontaprint brand is very strong and that the service we can offer is very marketable. We plan to run Prontaprint as licensed businesses rather than franchisees; as franchisees the businesses have to pay a higher proportion of their revenue for commercial services but as licence holders they will only have to pay for use of the brand. “We are talking about mature business people who run effective businesses and they do not necessarily need the commercial services that they were paying ODC for. The next step for us is to meet with business owners to talk about our plans for Prontaprint and our goal is that our customers’ businesses continue to operate without interruption.” Jamison confirmed that all 30 staff at ODC have been made redundant. A spokesperson for Deloitte said the accountancy firm is working with ODC but was unable to confirm in what capacity. ODC reached a settlement in June over legal claims over a lack of support made by its Kall Kwik and Prontaprint franchisees; around 45 franchisees left the business in a staggered exit following two days of mediation. A former Prontaprint franchisee, who left the franchise after the legal action, said: “We tried to suggest alternatives to leaving, such as for ODC to reduce the 10% fee that they took from us but they weren’t interested. We had to leave to stay afloat. It was a very long, hard and traumatic...
