Cartridge World Middle East was awarded the Master Franchise Franchise licence for 17 countries in the Middle East and North Africa in August 2004.
Since then franchises have been awarded in Dubai, Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, and Doha with further stores to open in Morocco and Dubai and Muscat and Doha.
Cartridge World Middle East Head Office is now based in Dubai with its Sales and Operations functions located in the Dubai Airport Freezone.
Cartridge World has a very strong brand name in Europe, North America, and the Southern Hemisphere where ink and laser recycling has a very high profile.
At present, recycling in the Middle East and North Africa is only just getting established but through education, businesses and individuals are realising that not only can they save money on their printing requirements but help preserve the world's resources at the same time. It is worth remembering that on average it takes over 3 litres of oil to make one new laser cartridge, the majority of which can be recycled many times.
With over 1500 stores worldwide Cartridge World is the largest franchise of its type in the world and with strong franchising awareness in the Middle East and North Africa, Cartridge World Middle East is in a position to award prospective investors, both large and small, a first class opportunity to establish a business in this strong growth market.
