AMERICAN FREIGHT WELCOMES NEW FRANCHISE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
Andrew Millar to Lead Retailer’s Emerging Franchise Program
American Freight, a leading furniture, mattress and appliance retailer, has welcomed Andrew Millar as Franchise Development Manager and tasked him with stewarding the company’s growing franchise model launched in late 2020.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Andrew to the team,” said Will Powell, CEO of American Freight. “His prior experience growing an up-and-coming franchise brand and passion for connecting with candidates will bring great value to our emerging franchise program.”
Prior to joining American Freight, Millar served for several years as a franchise sales specialist at a national tech repair company. He is a graduate of Abertay University in Dundee Scotland and worked in business development before relocating to the U.S.
“It’s an honor to join the team as they heavily invest in their new franchise program,” said Millar. “The value of American Freight’s easy to build, quick to open and highly scalable franchise model speaks for itself, and I’m committed to working with prospective candidates to realize these benefits and claim their territory while it’s still available.”
American Freight Furniture and Mattress was established in Lima, Ohio, in 1994. The company grew to its current nationwide footprint by adding and rebranding nearly 130 former Sears Outlets and more than 30 former FFO Home locations in 2020. The rebrand expanded American Freight’s product assortment to include furniture, mattresses and appliances.
American Freight was acquired by Franchise Group, Inc. in 2020. The company has more than 360 locations across 40 states and Puerto Rico. For more information or to inquire about franchising, visit OwnAmericanFreight.com
