PETERBOROUGH businessman Stephen Loasby is now the proud owner of two businesses; Kall Kwik and Recognition Express in Cowgate, Peterborough.

He will be officially launching Recognition Express Peterborough at the Peterborough B2B Show which is to be held at the Kingsgate Centre Wednesday 18 October from 9am to 4pm. Kall Kwik is one of the main show sponsors.

Visitors to Recognition Express/Kall Kwik on stand number 53 will have the chance to win £100 worth of promotional products of their choice in a business card draw. In addition, all orders taken at the exhibition will receive a 10% discount.

Stephen became the owner of Kall Kwik Peterborough in 1998. Since then the graphic design and print business has gone from strength to strength. He decided it was time to expand his business interests so he acquired the Recognition Express promotional items and clothing franchise for Peterborough.

“The idea just made complete sense,” said Stephen. “The Recognition Express product range fits perfectly alongside the graphic design and print services we provide to our customers at Kall Kwik. It now means we can offer a complete package to companies and organisations looking to promote their brand and is a natural addition to our business.”

Buying a franchise reduces the risk of starting up a new venture from scratch offering all of the advantages of running your own business but with support, training and back up provided by the franchisor’s head office team. Recognition Express has been established for almost 40 years and its tried and tested business model is at the heart of a thriving network of Recognition Express branches throughout the UK.

Recognition Express specialises in badge manufacture, signs, corporate gifts, promotional products, plus school uniforms and branded clothing. Recognition Express Peterborough can be contacted on 01733 796820 or
