Since the start of 2012 BCR Associates has recruited three new franchise owners to its network.

Hamilton Comely from Ashtead, Surrey; Dek Hardy from Newcastle; and Trevor Burrell from Reigate, Surrey all joined the cost reduction franchise in January 2012, bringing the total number of franchise owners in the network to 16.

Comely and Hardy first identified BCR Associates as a possible new business opportunity in September 2011. Their first impression of BCR Associates and subsequent research to validate the business potential was so favourable that it took just three months for them to make the decision to invest in a BCR Associates franchise. Burrell initially made contact with one of BCR Associates’ founding Directors 16 months ago, but required a longer lead-time due to the need to organise his exit from an overseas base.

Commenting on the new appointments, Phil Gaffer, Franchise Recruitment Manager, said: “With so many enterprises failing in the current economic climate, our ‘recession proof’ business model is going from strength to strength in terms of its appeal to franchise prospects. This combined with the unique proposition to customers (we pass on 100 per cent of all savings made on essential running costs with the exception of water and rateable values) coupled with our innovative approach to training and marketing, all contribute to positioning BCR Associates a natural choice for a new business venture.”
