Kevin Old Case Study

Kevin OldWhat did you do before you opened your ZipYard franchise store?

I have previously been involved with franchising but had various businesses from a used car motor dealership, finance brokerage, restaurant to name but a few!!

How did you come to investigate franchising, and why ZipYard?

Having been involved successfully with franchising before I was aware of its many benefits with regards to recognition and support. The ZipYard appealed to me as it had very strong branding and as important the franchisor had a good reputation within the industry and were members of the BFA.

How was the process from introduction to the brand to opening the store? What assistance did you receive related to the retail aspect of the store (ie premises? sales/stock, etc?) What support (+training and marketing) have you received, before and since opening the store?

The process was fairly simple and straightforward, assistance and advice was given with regards to the site and its location together with rental and lease negotiations etc. Prior to this I had spent a week at head office and in store training for the business which was very comprehensive and thorough.

How is it working out so far? What benefits come with running a recognised franchise and premises?

The store is running very successfully and above target, the main benefits from running a franchised business are the almost immediate recognition from customers of your business together with the support and back up provided by the franchisor.

How do you see the future for your business?

I see a very bright future with the planned expansion to 3/4 more units within the next 24 months.

What advice would you have for anyone considering franchising with ZipYard - and franchising in general?

The best advice to any potential franchisor of the ZipYard would be to talk to as many existing franchisees as possible and be very aware that this is a very simple business but nevertheless customer service must always be of paramount importance.

With regards to franchising in general I would say always be prepared to follow the guidelines given by the franchisor, do not be tempted to deviate under any circumstances unless you discuss it with the franchisor first, be prepared for some serious hard work, and follow what I call the recipe book, if you do that you are more than likely going to bake a successful cake!
