Meet the PACK & SEND team
Initially as a candidate and then as a PACK & SEND franchisee you will have a lot of contact with the team at PACK & SEND. Our team is a small, agile group that has been instrumental in introducing the PACK & SEND Franchise System to New Zealand and continues growing the brand into a household name.
Matthew Everest – Managing Director

Following a rigorous due diligence process he opened the first PACK & SEND service centre in Christchurch in August 2008.
