Annie was a curriculum manager and Dams was an unemployed/temp Fork-lift truck driver. They wanted a more permanent solution for Dams, a business they could both work in.
Dublcheck was at a Franchise exhibition in Birmingham. We liked the degree of support offered by the model and felt it was an area in which we could both utilise our skillsets.
We received a full week's training at head office.
Mercifully our Initial Contracts came through gradually so that we were able to give careful attention to getting them right. Looking back our inexperience must have shown but, I'm pleased to say, we still have several of those contracts.
There was always someone on the end of the phone to provide advice and guidance. We were also given a mentor to speak to whenever needed.
Undoubtedly. The promise of a guaranteed turnover by the end of the first year was a definite attraction as was the back up of rolling contracts. Having professional salespeople to find customers was also such a benefit which allowed us to concentrate on operational matters.
Throughout the pandemic we have continued to expand our business the opportunities are endless in this recession proof industry.
We haven't stood still long enough to evaluate that stand-out moment but there have certainly been plenty of highs and very few lows.
I had an idea that I might take life a bit easier and explore my hobbies but the temptation to continue to grow the business prevents this happening
We plan to develop the business so that we can retire and still draw an income from it.
