After taking the business as far as it could go, Michael decided he needed a new challenge, something Tracy was eager to support him in.
Not wanting to start a new business from scratch, the pair began to research various franchise opportunities.
Michael says: “We initially looked at several other franchises, but struggled to find a franchisor who made us feel confident that we would be fully supported to make our business as successful as possible. That’s until we found Mr. Electric.
“Not only do we know we have the support of a dedicated team behind us who are always there to champion our success, we are now also part of a network of franchisees who share our passion for the brand.
“Joining Mr. Electric given us the opportunity to be a part of a very exciting industry, particularly with the rise of electric vehicles and charge points, which we’re thrilled to bring to our local community.”
Michael and Tracy’s franchise opened for business on October 14.
