Ian is happy to be following the family tradition of being self employed and joins his brother, an agricultural contractor and his father, a builder. He said: “I have always wanted to work for myself and taking voluntary redundancy has given me the opportunity to take the leap now.”
Attending a British Franchising Association seminar helped Ian make his mind up to pursue franchising. After much research Ian decided that Recognition Express offers the best opportunity for growth and is well suited to his sales experience.
Ian adds: “Recognition Express is a well established Franchise, which offers such a wide range of products and there are so many possible markets and customers. That’s especially important in such a tough climate.”
“I have conducted a ‘marketing walkabout’, knocking on the doors of local businesses and I believe I can help these organisations promote themselves in a cost effective way.”
Nigel Toplis, Managing Director of Recognition Express said: “I’m delighted that Recognition Express is now in Wolverhampton and Telford, and I’m confident that Ian will make a success of his business. We are here to support him and I wish him the best of luck.”
