Dane Sampson, FiltaFry Plus Franchisee
Dane Sampson, 20 years old from Bristol explains how the head office franchise team at FiltaFry Plus have supported him and enabled him to achieve his short-term aims in 2 months!
When I wanted the challenge of running my own business I decided that franchising was my best option. I chose to invest in a franchise because I wanted to own a business that already had an established reputation and could give me support if I needed it.
While researching into the franchise opportunities available FiltaFry really stood out because it was such a unique business. Also I felt that it had a good earning potential and would provide the opportunity to expand.
My franchise covers the Bristol territory and since launching in September 2009 my round is already half full. I have had no problems in getting customers and I found that the training I did prior to my launch had fully prepared me for the running of my business. The beauty of this franchise is the repeat business week-in, week-out with the same customers and you only need 35 to 40 customers to reach serious earning potential.
Within two months I managed to fulfil my short-term aim of having a full round. I am now concentrating on establishing my business and building a good relationship with my customers and in the future I might look at expanding.
Although it is more difficult being self-employed the skills I have learned running my franchise will stay with me for life. I feel that, being self-employed, anything is possible and the opportunities are endless.
I was only 20 when I took the leap to be my own boss and the support of the FiltaFry head office team has enabled me to develop the skills needed to be a successful business owner. If someone had told me when I left my job that I’d be doing all this for myself within a year, I’d never have believed it!
