What our franchisees have to say...

Having been made redundant, Andy Cornell launched his ChipsAway franchise three years ago:

“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!”

David Greenaway got off to a flying start, and loves everything that being his own boss brings:

“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.”

What’s next?
