Eamonn Holmes goes behind the scenes with an etyres Franchise Owner
Matt McElhinney achieved his personal and financial goals by owning his own business by the time he was 30, when he launched his etyres branch in Ipswich.
A former insurance broker, Matt has worked hard, closely following the etyres system, and his high level of repeat customers adds greatly to the capital value of his business.
Matt said: “I went down the franchise route due to the fact it has a much higher chance of success than starting a new business.
“I chose etyres because everybody needs tyres and I believed that if you offer a decent service at a decent price, saving people time and money, you would soon get a good loyal customer base.”
Matt was very organised in his approach to starting his business. He spoke to existing Franchise Owners and spent a day with a branch. Then he drew up a business plan.
His next step was to arrange finance. Matt explained: “I approached Natwest as they have a specialist franchise lending department.
“They read my business plan, knew I was serious and because etyres is well known to them, they lent me the necessary funds within 15 minutes.”
“The on-going support has been great and there is always someone at the end of a phone when I need it.
“Starting an etyres business has definitely changed my life. It has given me a set of skills that mean I can run a business from start to finish.
“I have learnt every aspect of running a business and what it takes to make it successful. I will be able to apply these skills and this work ethic to any future endeavours.
GREAT! WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?
