Franchisee - Domino's Pizza, Anytime Fitness, a well-known mobile phone brand
I began working within my family business from the age of 14, doing evenings and Saturday mornings within my father’s Domino’s Pizza store. I worked throughout my studies and upon graduating I joined the business “full time”. My Dad was keen to see me go through the ranks, so I began as a store manager in 2010 in our worst performing store. I slowly began to learn the day to day running of the business and soon took on two stores before taking on more and more.
I was introduced a well-known mobile phone brand via the franchise team at HSBC. I wanted to see if I could begin a company independently and was thrilled when they accepted me to be a franchisee in late 2015. Last year the family company began to invest in gyms with Anytime Fitness. To date we have invested in 27 units across three franchise brands.
