Jacob grew up in Huddersfield, but lived down south for a number of years when he was younger - as a result he doesn’t have a northern accent and sounds a little like James Blunt. He has a Master of Law and Practice degree, but decided in his final year that he was more interested in business than law. He is married with 3 children, and his family are one of the biggest priorities in his life. In his free time, he plays tennis and loves to watch movies and would like to one day open up a cinema of his own. He is also a postman with Mr Flyer, so has seen how the business runs at ground level upwards. He attends Huddersfield Christian Fellowship with the other office staff and is a devoted Christian.

We call our solus distribution staff ‘Business Builders’ because that’s what they do, build your business!
These are the unsung heroes of Mr Flyer, unfortunately there’s too many to list here. At the monthly team meetings it's great to hear feedback from them, especially as many key Mr Flyer ideas have originated from our business builders. Some of the distributors also hold other roles including stocking, preparation of flyers and certain office roles.
You often read autobiographies of your favourite businessman who made his millions from a business idea wrote on the back of a pub coaster; well this isn't so different...except no one here has yet made millions!
Andrew Robinson and Kangwa Mushibwe were casually sat in McDonalds, both unemployed, having a general catch up. Andrew mentioned that he was struggling to sell his Herbalife product, which he had recently signed up to. After reading in the marketing book that leaflet distribution was worldwide the most effective strategy, he got ripped off buying some flyers directly from Herbalife and set out distributing them himself. Kangwa commented on how the previous year he had done some leaflet distributing for a few local businesses he knew, and stated he innocently charged a ludicrously high amount to do it (much more than Mr Flyer charge).
This sparked an idea in Andrew’s mind: why not start their very own distribution company? That evening, along with the next few evenings, Andrew researched the viability of starting such a business. Andrew soon recognised this was a viable business opportunity, and so approached Kangwa and proposed a partnership. Neither had much experience in the field, Andrew came from an Architecture background and Kangwa IT, yet their eagerness pulled them through.
First things first: business name. Browsing online at website templates they came across one with a moonlit background, so the name Moonlight Flyers was planned. However, after asking friends and peers, the general consensus was that it sounded more like a gentlemen’s club than a leaflet distribution company! As they were brainstorming Andrew noticed that the initial of Kangwa’s surname (M) and that of his own (R), created the word Mr, which promptly became Mr Flyer – seamless!
From humble beginnings using Kangwa’s spare room as ‘Head Office’ and Andrew’s Alfa GTV as distributor transport, it is heartening to see how the business has grown, matured and innovated so dramatically over a somewhat short period of time to become a Multi Award Winning marketing business.
