Business cost reduction franchise BCR Associates has continued its successful recruitment drive with the appointment of three new franchise owners.

Ben Leighton from Bath, Michael Holman from Penarth, and Mark Brown from Newark have recently joined the business, brining the total number of franchise owners in the BCR Associates network to 12.

Commenting on why he chose a BCR Associates franchise, Leighton said: “I had previously looked at several different franchise opportunities in various sectors and industries but was put off by a multiple of factors: the need to buy stock; deal with shop fits; expensive running/office costs; high financial investment requirements – but most importantly none of the other franchises fitted with my sales and marketing background. BCR Associates offered low start up costs, a white collar role which complemented my sales experience, a recession proof market and a strong added value proposition, since the service is offered at a zero cost to the client.”

BCR Associates was first launched in 2009 and its franchise was road tested by two foundation franchise owners. Commenting on the new appointments Phil Gaffer, Franchise Recruitment Manager at BCR Associates, said: “Understandably our franchise owners are attracted to the prospect of running a highly profitable and fulfilling business in a booming market sector while still enjoying an enviable work/life balance. Also, at a time when integrity and total transparency is increasingly becoming a prerequisite to any business transaction, our service – which is absolutely free of charge and guarantees that 100 per cent of all savings made are passed on to the client (excluding water and rateable values) – it totally on trend in terms of current buying behaviour patters. Add to that the brand’s proven ability to stand apart from its competitors with a refreshingly, innovative approach to business which challenges the norm in what has traditionally been quite a conservative sector, and it is possible to understand the increasing popularity of our franchise offering.”
