Jack Connor was an Approved Contractor for an Aspray Franchisee. Now he’s a Successful Aspray Franchisee himself!
And almost 4 years to the day later, Jack Connor, Aspray franchisee, still thinks he’s made the right decision.
"I knew the model, saw the margins and earnings and thought, I could do well at that!"
Jack’s Aspray story started nearly 8 years ago when he became an Approved Contractor for an Aspray franchisee in a neighbouring territory, working as a plasterer and having worked with Aspray for nearly 4 years, Jack knew he had the skills required to operate a successful franchise.
"Being friendly and good with people are the main attributes needed to be an Aspray franchisee. The customer has to like you. You need to be able to walk into someone’s house, be well spoken and get the customer to trust you with their claim."
Jack’s advice to anyone looking at buying a franchise is to:
"Sit back, look at your own skills and work out what you are best at. Not everyone will have every skill needed but, check that you have got enough of those boxes ticked to get up and running."
Since joining Aspray, Jack has built a successful franchise.

Since the start, I have taken part in the peer-to-peer support offered through head office. I feel it’s important to be engaged and involved with this type of support. I don’t want to see people in the network struggle and at the same time, it allows me the opportunity to learn and grow from others that do the same job in different ways.Jack Parkhouse
It’s seeing people satisfied, happy and resolved and knowing that over the ten years you’ve helped people get back to their life. You see the homeowner, or policyholder satisfied and smiling, or you that the claims has caused them the minimum inconvenience, that’s what you have achieved for them.Roy Bowen
