Last mile carrier plans to launch franchise delivery model in 50 markets
The Frontdoor Collective (FDC) plans to launch in about 50 markets by 2023 as it aims to demonstrate the growth potential of its franchise delivery model, a company executive said in an interview Thursday.
The e-commerce-focused last mile delivery provider currently serves the Pittsburgh, Boston, Philadelphia and Houston markets, said Rick Hernandez, senior vice president of sales and business development. It plans to expand to Southern California and Arizona in about two weeks.
The FDC relies on franchisees to make deliveries, unlike FedEx Ground and Amazon, which use contracted service providers. “We’re not creating this antagonistic relationship between management and labor — we’re aligning the incentives,” Hernandez said.
