Hunters began as a family business, so its directors have been pleased to hear reports that franchising has helped many find that all-elusive work/life balance.
“Coming under the Hunters umbrella has helped many of our franchisees not only grow their business - by an average of 36% in the first year - but the support of being part of a wider organisation is helping with other things like family life,” says Andrew Bushell, sales director of Hunters Franchising. “For many, just having a third person- a friendly and experienced voice at the end of the phone to bounce ideas around with - has made a real difference. For others it’s getting things like staff training and computer systems sorted out. The way Hunters takes away some of the headaches of running a business and lets owners concentrate on the important things, including their family life, is really encouraging.”
