Adrian and Amanda Keeling – thebestof Woking
“For me, the single most important ingredient that I look for in any business is residual income, when customers pay you a set amount, every month. It’s the silver bullet that turns a ‘job’ into a ‘business.
The franchise is brilliant and the support is truly world class. I now have a residual income of £5,500 a month. Many of my clients are rapidly becoming friends. I have already recommended this franchise to a friend; it’s great fun and worth every penny!”
Richard Taylor – thebestof Oldham
“thebestof was thebestof decisions that I have ever made!! Several months ago I decided that I wanted to work from home and spend more time with my young family. I looked at several franchises for me to work in the community and found thebestof which ticked all the right boxes. It could be run from home, allowed flexible work schedules to suit and above all was community orientated.”
I have been a franchisee for over 3 years and I honestly couldn't think of anything else I'd rather be doing! I love hearing and learning about other businesses and really get a 'kick' out of helping those business owners promote and market their business like no other.
