We are delighted to welcome Howie John-Ellis to our nationwide network as he launches etyres Newport. We are equally proud of the fact that when he made the decision to start his own business, Howie chose an etyres franchise because as a former customer himself, he could see it was a business with tremendous potential.
About four years ago, Howie called on the services of etyres Cardiff – now his neighbouring branch – to supply and fit a set of tyres to the family Fiesta. He was extremely impressed with our mobile tyre fitting service and when he sought a new career challenge, it was a natural choice.
So now, after working as a research and development technician for an aluminium systems company, for eight years, Howie is steeling himself for the challenge of running his own venture.
“I could tell the business was built on a firm foundation and that the basic premise of a mobile tyre fitting company was sound,” Howie explained. “I was also attracted to etyres because it has a family-orientated feel to it, it’s not a big corporate conglomerate that gobbles everything up.”
A self-confessed grease-monkey, Howie enjoyed the hands-on training with the etyres operations manager. He also spent three days at our Head Office having one-to-one training sessions with our senior management team, covering all aspects of running the business from accounting to marketing.
As well as covering the city of Newport, Howie’s branch also incorporates the surrounding areas including Cwmbran, Monmouth, Chepstow and Pontypool.
With our service continuing to experience a strong growth in demand we have some key areas we are very keen to launch new branches in, so if you would like the opportunity to run your own business, working in a hands-on environment and enjoying the prospect of securing a sound financial future, contact the etyres franchise recruitment team on 01223 633 777 or click here to request an information pack.
