Franchisee Success Story: David Bullough, East Kent
David had operated a franchise before and was therefore keen to invest again in an established business model and regain control over his lifestyle as he wanted to spend more quality time with his family.
Davis says, "I was attracted to SITB because it has a professional brand image and has been in operation for over 17 years. Unlike the other sales and distribution franchises on the market, SITB is not gimmicky - I could see that the concept of providing branded snacks to the workplace has great potential. The fact I would be able to operate the franchise from the comfort of my own home was also appealing, as my overheads would be minimal."
David was taught everything he needed to know about running his own SITB business over a five day training course from interacting with customers, to ordering and packing boxes and sorting out the company finances. The course concluded with a day spent shadowing an existing franchisee in order to get a feel for what it is like operating a SITB business.
David launched his East Kent SITB business in June 2008 and hasn't looked back since. David concludes "at the moment I have 140 sites in my territory, which combined generate £2,000 per week. My longterm aim is to build up the business to 160 sites and a weekly turnover of £2,800. I love the fact I only work a 40 hour week and have regained control of my life. Now I am able to take my sons to school in the morning and am home in time to enjoy an evening meal with my family."
