Court Finds In Favor of Mosaic Funerals
In a case brought against Mosaic Funerals Pretoria City (previously Martin’s Funerals Pretoria City CC) by Martin Funeral Franchising, the court has ruled in favour of Mosaic. According to Ronnie Collins, Mosaic Funeral Group Spokesperson, the case was filed following the breakaway of 97 Martin’s franchisees from Martins – most of which now comprise the Mosaic Funeral Group. Martin’s sought to enforce a restraint of trade against Mosaic Funerals and was also seeking for them not to be allowed to continue servicing erstwhile Martin’s clients.
At the time of the breakaway from Martin’s, Mosaic Funeral Group owners explained the reason for leaving Martin’s to their clients and provided them with the opportunity to remain with Martin’s or to sign new policy agreements with Mosaic. “After finding out the reason for our leaving Martins, the overwhelming majority signed new agreements and we are delighted that now, 9 months down the line, they are still Mosaic clients,” says Collins.
“The case has been heard and has been dismissed with costs. Mosaic Funerals with our 104 branches nationwide will continue trading as normal.”
