People have different reasons for joining a franchise, and whether long or short term, as a budding entrepreneur there is no doubt that you’ll have plans for your business.
In franchising, it is important to know there is longevity in the brand and the business and that you can have safety in knowing you can be a part of the franchise for as long as you wish. This is a really important core value for Belvoir and often our franchisees have a long and prosperous franchisee career with us.
This is definitely the case for Andy Campbell of Belvoir Moray, who was, in fact, the very first franchisee to sign on the dotted line with Belvoir!
Andy joined Belvoir back in July 1996 when the famous Belvoir red was in fact shades of green, cream and yellow! Now, 20 years later Andy tell us “When I started Belvoir Moray, I had just retired from the RAF and I built my business up from nothing. I initially worked from a spare room in my own home, with only a chair, a desk, computer and a filing cabinet. How times have changed! Today we are one of the biggest agents in Moray.
We now have five full-time employees and one part-time member of staff, so we are quite a large team and they are all fantastic. Many of the staff have been with me for years, including my office manager Lynn Roger, who has worked here for 15 years.”
This fantastic achievement shows the real strength of the Belvoir brand, to have franchisees that stay with the Network for this length of time also shows the level of determination and entrepreneurship that such an individual has.
Speaking about this landmark anniversary, Belvoir’s Managing Director Dorian Gonsalves said “It is a fantastic achievement for Andy Campbell of Belvoir Moray to be celebrating 20 years with the company, Andy was Belvoir’s very first franchise owner, launching in July 1996 and it is fabulous that our very first franchise owner is still in business after 20 years and is still as passionate and enthusiastic about the business as he was on the day that he first opened.”
