etyres Portsmouth is celebrating its 20th anniversary with our mobile tyre fitting network and our managing director Tony Bowman was delighted to present them with an elegant, engraved trophy to mark the milestone.
Since Pam and Stuart Cass became our first Franchise Owners back in 1996 it has been a pleasure to have worked alongside them, as their unfailing enthusiasm and professionalism has allowed them to grow their business into a multi-van branch and expand into a second territory with the launch of etyres Southampton.
Stuart said: “We have many great stories and memories of our time at etyres. When we first started in Portsmouth we threw everything at it, we wore out at least two pairs of shoes drumming up business from all over the area, no stones left unturned. Pam would man the phones and I would totally involve myself in marketing and sales, we thought it was better to employ a fitter from the word go so that we could concentrate on all other aspects of the business.
“If you asked me would we make the same choice again and launch an etyres franchise, the answer would be “Yes!”. It has been an amazing journey!
“We have worked hard to build our business during the last 20 years and have continued to renew our franchise agreement with etyres because our branch is thriving and we value the on-going support and from Head Office and its commitment to investing in developing the brand.”
Tony praised the couple and their team for their continued commitment to etyres.
“Pam and Stuart have always been an enormous credit to the company,” he said. “They have always striven to deliver an exceptionally high level of customer service, which has been rewarded time and time again with repeat business, recommendations and a flourishing customer database.
“Their hard work and unfaltering commitment has allowed them to develop a profitable and sustainable business. It has been a pleasure to have worked with them for 20 years and we all look forward to continuing on our journey together.”
