With Agency Express, franchisees are also assured of receiving exceptional ongoing support. Each franchisee is guided through every aspect of running their business, be it manual or administerial. They have access to accounts and operational support, to ongoing marketing and sales backup, giving them all the knowledge and confidence needed to become successful business owners.
Agency Express franchisee, Brian Skinner, shares his thoughts on being an Agency Express business owner. “Every day is different and presents an assortment of opportunities. Most of the day-to-day challenges are covered in the training, so I haven’t experienced anything that I’m unprepared for. The biggest thrill comes from opening and nurturing new business. The buzz from this is difficult to beat.
“Within the first six months of trading I developed enough additional business to take on a second van and driver, and in 2022 I expanded into a second territory. The opportunities are there if you want them, and the ongoing support from head office is outstanding.
“Being a manual franchise, it can be hard work, but I reap all the benefits. I wish I’d discovered Agency Express 10 years ago. The business model works and it’s easy to operate. All you need to do is apply yourself, and success will follow.”
If you’re considering franchising and would like the reassurance of a proven business model, then the Agency Express van-based opportunity could be a perfect match for you. With Agency Express, no previous experience or qualifications are required, just self-motivation and a willingness to succeed.
