The importance of becoming part of a franchise that works together is emphasised in the latest column for Elite Franchise magazine penned by etyres Managing Director Tony Bowman.
Inspired by the Henry Ford quote: “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success”, Tony stresses how a family feel can help ensure a franchise network goes from strength to strength.
“Being part of a franchise doesn’t guarantee you a charmed business life,” Tony wrote in the April issue, “but it does offer you the opportunity to share the burden of your responsibilities when times are tough, as well as celebrating the successes.
“It may sound corny, but being part of a franchise should be like being part of a big family. This is another key reason why we espouse family values and many of our branches are family businesses that are jointly owned by couples, siblings or parents and their children.”
