The guy you are talking about is Willie Little from Belfast.
All his franchisees are NCCA and IICRC trained, his organisation is very professional. I saw his advertising material in its early stages of development and I can honestly say.... it was impressive.
If Willie says he will do it... then he will
Good luck to Willie ( Another Franchise ) All competition welcome... But once again i say go it by yourself the rewards are much greater.. New franchises will find it hard with the likes of Chem Dry and Servicemaster having the insurance work sown up ( or the bulk of it ) Good luck anyway
