“I’ve been an Autosmart franchisee now for 10 years and I have loved the freedom and independence that being your own boss brings. I’ve really got a buzz out of becoming good friends with many of my customers and watching our businesses grow alongside one another.
“I took the business on when it had around 20 customers and have grown the business up to around 300 regular repeat customers! The territory is quite rural, which brings lots of advantages for the Autosmart franchise. There is every element of industry available, with lots of local independent businesses who are willing to pay a good price for excellent, reliable service.
“I am now ready to cash in on my hard work and enjoy some retirement”.
