Current Stoke on Trent Franchisee Chris Bird Says...

“I started my Autosmart franchise in 2004, but before that I was the aerosols manager at their manufacturing plant in Staffordshire.  The last 13 years have been brilliant and I’ve learnt a lot.  You need to juggle many roles, for example, being the driver, the salesman, the stock control person and the bookkeeper – it’s been a steep learning curve, but a very rewarding one. 

“Being an Autosmart franchisee has taught me that I can be my own boss and I’ve now realised that the time is right for me to take on a new challenge and explore new pursuits".
