Read below for an interview with Aspray’s Franchisee of the Year, Jack Connor, who joined Aspray in April 2014.
Aspray’s Jack Connor joined the Aspray team in April 2014. Not only did Jack double his target for first year turnover but has received nothing but positive feedback from Aspray customers and introducers.
Because I worked for Aspray (Guildford) as a contractor and could see potential for a bigger business than I was currently running. It looked like a good lifestyle too!
I was a plasterer and decorator for about 10 years prior to joining Aspray.
Make sure you handle quite a few claims to completion before pushing to expand your business. You need good experience with insurers, Loss Adjusters and Contractors to be able to successfully manage multiple claims at any one time. If you are handling a lot of claims for big introducers before you are confident in doing so you could risk looking unprofessional. Don’t run before you can walk!
Receiving good feedback and testimonials, seeing works completed to a high standard and getting paid! Clearing jobs off your list makes room for new ones.
The support is first class. Everybody at HO has a vital role to play and they are all great. General advice on complicated claims or situations you have not come across before are most common. If Hayley or Lucy cannot help (which is rare) then Julie Parker is always on hand to guide you through difficult claims.
Becoming a professional as opposed to a tradesman. I love wearing a suit to work and also having a business that suits my life. I have a young family and this job gives me the time to be around to watch my kids grow up as well as running a successful business. A good work and family balance is extremely important to me.
Very good. I love my job and the person I am becoming as a result of a change in career. I don’t really have any negatives as yet.
It meant a lot. I was really not expecting it at all and although I knew I had a good first year, it’s hard to compare it to that of all the other franchisees to know just how well you are doing. I think the mixture of good feedback, no complaints, difficult claims and a good first year turnover which all contributed to the award.
