The Franchise Package
What our franchisees have to say…
As soon as David Greenaway scratched the surface of a ChipsAway franchise, he knew it was for him. His business got off to a flying start with a hugely successful launch weekend, securing £4,000 worth of firm bookings, and he is looking forward to his future and growing his business with ChipsAway!
“I love being my own boss, I can work when it suits me and you really get out what you put in. People say I am lucky that my business is going so well, but in this game you make your own luck.”
After being made redundant, Paul launched his ChipsAway franchise in 2008. Since then he has built up a very successful business. Using the practical skills he gained through working in the industry and the business development support he has received from head office, he has been able to grow his franchise into a thriving family business.
“My ChipsAway business is doing really well. In uncertain economic times, ChipsAway has enabled me to take control of my family’s destiny. Now my son Robert is becoming more involved as we expand and hopefully, one day, he’ll be able to take over from me, which will provide a real legacy for our family.”
“I’m absolutely thrilled with the way my business is going. I’d always dreamt of running my own business rather than seek another job. I wanted something flexible, that was not massively expensive and which had the potential for growth. ChipsAway has proved to be everything I’d hoped for. ‘It does what it says on the tin’, and if you follow the business model you can’t go wrong!”
