We will be the preferred choice in the communities we operate by delivering sustainable franchise models.


  • Our culture is uniquely Kiwi - down to earth, fun, energised and passionate - where everyone makes a difference.
  • We treat others with respect, trust and honesty, as we want to be treated
  • We expect commitment from our people and our people expect the same from us.
  • We lift our game to stay ahead of the game

Membership of the Paper Plus Group brings with it a number of benefits including:

  • Brand recognition
  • Negotiated preferential purchasing arrangements from key suppliers
  • A fully functioning category management team working for the benefit of the members
  • Centralised billing of accounts
  • High profile marketing campaigns
  • Inclusion in one of New Zealand’s two biggest loyalty and rewards programmes – Fly Buys and AA Rewards
  • Operational and business support and advice
  • Group negotiated savings in key areas of business operation

There are three ways you can become a member of the Paper Plus Group

  • Purchase a Paper Plus Group store from an existing member
  • Bring your existing book and stationery business into the Paper Plus Group
  • Establish new Paper Plus Group store at a site approved by us

As a co-operative franchise - membership and shareholding is a priviledge so in all of these cases you must first satisfy the Board of Paper Plus that you have the required skills and are suitable to become a member of our Group.

Many franchise opportunities have fixed term contracts associated with them; not so at Paper Plus Group. As a new Paper Plus Group member you will enter into an open ended Franchise contract that will only terminate when you leave our Group.
