A successful career in retail enabled Nigel to live and work in Sweden and travel all over the world in his role within Finance Business Partnering for IKEA.
Nigel was considering his next career path and had been browsing the franchising world for 5 or 6 years, with the ambition to work for himself. (and prove that he can build a business and leave the corporate world behind.)
Nigel says “I explored a number of franchises within a range of sectors before selecting No Letting Go. Excellent customer service is a real passion, and in a service led industry it really does make a difference to the success of a business. After meeting the Head Office team, I really felt their partnership approach was a good fit for me”.
“Having bought my first territory towards the end of 2019, within 3 months I felt very confident about my training and ability to deliver good service. Despite the pandemic hitting in 2020, I was able to bring on new clients and achieve good consistent growth throughout the year” explains Nigel. "A neighbouring territory became available and Nigel decided it was a good time to purchase this in 2021".
Many entrepreneurs look at the franchise option, so they can build a business of their own but want the backup that a franchise can provide. Nigel provides an overview of his experience so far “In addition to supplementary training and guidance through my journey, the Head Office team are also very proactive in building client relationships. The success of my business has been down to the local clients I have developed, but it is difficult to get a foothold with larger national clients, and this is where the franchisor has really assisted”.
Finding a property services business with a great track record and low overheads was the perfect fit, so after a series of meetings Rob purchased No Letting Go Kings Lynn.
In 2016 at the age of 21, Daniel from our Gravesend office bought his first franchise, closely followed by a second a year later.
Following a long career in banking Dominic Baines started his No Letting Go business in Manchester South in November 2014.
Following a long career in PR and then redundancy Garry Lockwood wanted a change of lifestyle so he started his No Letting Go business in Sutton & Merton.
Chris Holmes new business started in January 2008 and Chris was confident that once the company was up and running, he would be looking to recruit additional inventory management clerks.
