Redundancy persuaded Andy Cornell to take the leap and become a ChipsAway franchisee
ChipsAway franchisee Andy Cornell has been busy from day one and has always been fully booked four weeks ahead.
“I’m absolutely thrilled with my business,” says Andy, a former sales and marketing director, who suffered redundancy twice in three years.
“I’d always had a desire to run my own business and redundancy persuaded me to take the leap, rather than seek another job and possibly face the same problems.”
Andy looked at a variety of different opportunities before deciding on ChipsAway. He’s certain joining the UK’s leading automotive paintwork repair brand was the right move for him.
“I wanted something flexible, that was not expensive and which had the potential for growth,” Andy explains. “I’ve certainly got all that with ChipsAway.
“I liked the idea of being able to enter the market with the back up of a well known and respected brand name and the support a franchise could offer in a marketplace and industry that was new to me.
“From the outset I’ve had terrific support from ChipsAway and I know that whatever option I choose for the future I can count on their experience, enthusiasm and advice to help me build my business and achieve long-term success.”
Andy now operates a successful Car Care Centre in Guildford and was proudly awarded both the Franchisee of the Year 2016 and Business Mentor of the Year, for the third year in a row.
