Dean has worked in the large corporate world for 30+ years, where he has progressed to a high level of responsibility, which has given him a strong level of business awareness and a good set of transferable skills.
Dean felt that it was the right time to do something for himself, and look to give something back to the community that had helped to shape him as an individual. After looking at the various options, he felt that the product quality and ethical approach of an Esquire’s franchise business, met these requirements and represented an exciting new challenge and opportunity for him.
Dean asked Franchise Finance to prepare his business plan, firstly to determine the viability of the business opportunity, and secondly to raise any necessary finance to successfully set up the business.
Franchise Finance duly prepared a comprehensive business plan which showed a viable outcome for Dean, before helping him to arrange the necessary finance with a High Street bank lender, to enable him to open his new Esquires Coffee franchise business.
