Last month, Auditel signed their 200th franchisee and are now the UK’s largest cost and purchase management franchise. They have achieved significant industry recognition over the past two years. In addition to being finalists in the Franchise Marketing Awards for Best Franchisee Marketing Support and Best Website, they were also nominated as a finalist in the prestigious HSBC Franchisee Support Award. This award, which is sponsored by the British Franchise Association (bfa), is given to the franchisor providing an exceptional foundation to their franchisees and the best possible environment for success.
Newcomer Simon Eggleton lives in Buckinghamshire with his wife and 3 children. He came from a background as Head of Information Solutions for a major communications network. Simon recalls: “Having conducted due diligence into many franchises and stand-alone businesses, Auditel remained my benchmark against which I compared the others. In the final analysis, Auditel offered a business opportunity that would leverage my skills, provide me with flexibility and deliver the sort of returns I aim to get from my new business. I also felt the people I met had integrity and are the sort of people I would happily work with.”
Head of Marketing, Laurence Knott: “Now is the time for any management professional who is seeking a career change to approach us. Our higher earners enjoy an income of over £200k. Our Free Discovery Seminars give an indication of what may be achieved to provide financial, business and personal satisfaction.”
