Cafe2U the obvious choice for a hospitality manager
With financial support from family, Alan Fulton was able to get back in control of his work life and set up his Cafe2U franchise in August 2014.
Alan previously worked in the hospitality industry for 22 years working in pubs, hotels and clubs, an industry which he loved, but unsociable hours which he didn’t.
When he decided to start looking for a business Alan was no stranger to franchising as his father had bought a Chips Away franchise previously. However he was looking for a beverage based franchise so he could utilise his previous experience but without the unsociable hours, therefore, Cafe2U seemed the perfect option for him.
“I actually looked at the franchise 4 years before I bought it” explains Alan. “At that time my wife Claire didn’t want me to go ahead with it, however, following a few more years life experience and understanding of the business and further research Claire was happy for me to pursue it and from getting back in touch it only took me 3 months to complete the process”.
Alan was so pleased he made the decision and praises the support of the Cafe2U franchise system “Martyn was so passionate about the business and helped me through every step, fully explaining everything and answering all my questions, settling any nerves I had”.
Alan runs his franchise in the south of Aberdeen serving the Cafe2U coffee, hot chocolate and complimentary snacks to businesses in the area. His Cafe2U has proved a hit with the local businesses and his coffee is in high demand. Alan explains one of his customers told him “Stop worrying about being late, we love your coffee and we plan our breaks around you”. Praise indeed!
Alan is enjoying seeing the business grow but his main motivation for buying the franchise was for the lifestyle change and is now enjoying spending much more quality time with his wife and 2 sons.
GREAT! WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?
