FoodCycle is a charity working towards the reduction of food waste and food poverty, and Metro Rod’s support is one of many ways that the franchise is committed to its corporate social responsibility.
Metro Rod, the UK’s leading provider of drain care and maintenance, recently announced its support of FoodCycle. While supporting the reduction of food waste and food poverty, FoodCycle runs a volunteer programme for cooking, donation collection and hosting. It’s an excellent cause, and very much deserving of Metro Rod’s support.
This is one of the many ways that the drainage franchise is doing more and evolving its corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy in 2021. In the words of Metro Rod, “Businesses are judged now more than ever on their CSR activities and how they support local communities, whether through employment and career opportunities, embedding sustainability into the supply chain, or working with local charities.”
Speaking to its network of franchisees, Metro Rod expressed that, “The support for FoodCycle comes as part of our ongoing CSR evolution and is just one example of how you can help local communities. As a franchise business, it’s important that CSR activity is reflected across the network, and we encourage you to review the activities in your business and look further at how you can help your local area.”
If you’d like to franchise with a growing, CSR-focused franchise, you can become a Metro Rod franchisee for a minimum initial investment of £50,000. In return for that investment, you’ll receive a comprehensive package of training and support from your franchisor, including a full programme of initial training, sales and marketing assistance, help raising your brand profile and driving customer enquiries, and in-house call centre support available 24/7, 365 days a year.
