Testimonial - Peter Higgs - thebestof Birmingham
thebestof is always looking to recruit superstar franchisees. Peter Higgs, who took on thebestof Birmingham in February 2013, has broken the mould. With a varied background of both big corporate MD roles and owning his own businesses, Peter had a wealth of great experience to draw from. Looking for a new challenge and something that he would enjoy, Peter chose thebestof.
Since then Peter has not looked back. He already has a large customer base with clients including Aston Villa and Mini. He has been particularly impressed with the levels of support he has received from head office.
"From the initial meeting with Ben, through to the signing up and beyond, thebestof team did everything they said they would," comments Peter. "They have been incredibly supportive and focussed on helping me, the franchisee, become successful. Every franchisee has their own style and strengths and thebestof team nurtures those strengths and helps guide every step of the way.
"I, personally, have focussed on networking initially as I enjoy the personal interaction and the opportunity to 'get myself out there', generating business for myself and also for my customers. Price really has not been an issue as those who engage on a personal level get the benefits we have to offer.
"Plus, when you compare our monthly prices to a person's day rate or external advertising with magazines or papers, there really is no comparison - on price or value! I get a real buzz out of helping businesses generate new leads and being part of an ever growing team of local businesses that are growing daily.
"thebestof head office team, Nigel and fellow franchisees are always on hand to help at any stage to help make this a success for everyone."
