What Our Franchisees Say

  Martin Shuker Agency Express (Lancaster)
“I was filled with confidence from the professional way my enquiries where dealt with by the Agency Express Team. The strength of the franchise package, the impressive growth of the business in the last 12 years and the fact that the model clearly works, 107 franchisees proves that. I also received fantastic feedback when speaking to other franchisees about their experiences. That gave me the confidence to proceed.”
  Phil Harrington Agency Express Franchisee (Shropshire)
“I felt confident in the early days of starting my franchise. The Agency Express training and support programme gave me the kick start I needed in getting out there and getting active.”

  Kevin Keeler Agency Express (Cheltenham and Gloucester)
“A big factor was the relatively low start-up cost of the franchise. However, the clincher for me was the people when I visited head office in Norwich. I felt a connection.
  Jeremy Farrow Agency Express (Mid Warwickshire)
I am really pleased with the support I have had from Agency Express, better than I ever expected. The biggest highlight has been how quick I have been able to turn a profit, a real mark of achievement for me, a Yes I can do it.”
