Michael Rogers - Revolution Records Selby

"When I first saw that Revolution Records was wanting people join them as a Franchisee, I was very interested as it has always been my ambition to run my own record shop and to be a franchisee was the perfect fit . From my first contact with James on the zoom meeting I was very impressed with the process and the level of support that I would gain. Any apprehension that I had was taken away by Adam who went beyond my expectations in making the process a pleasure . The training and the support that I get from Brian and Luke in so fantastic on every level and has gone beyond anything that expected . A total pleasure from start to finish and beyond."
