Redundancy made former Regional Manager Mario Erispe decide to make a new start by launching his Chemex franchise covering the Chichester area.
As a Chemex franchise owner Erispe will provide cleaning and hygiene supplies to businesses. He said: “I was at a career crossroads following a restructure where my role was made redundant, I took this option as I wanted to run my own business.
“I’d had experience in retail sales at the start of my career and have had extensive customer service and management training in my previous role, so I wanted to utilise these skills while being in control of my own destiny.
“Running a franchise seemed to be the perfect solution, as it offered the freedom of running my own business with support and training on hand when I needed it.
“Chemex came highly recommended with a great package, induction and ongoing support, as well as a strong range of products.”
Erispe will initially focus on targeting hospitality and healthcare companies in his area. He is confident the business will grow rapidly over the coming months, as Chemex offers a managed service solution not just product sales. Erispe added: “One of the key strengths of the Chemex solution is that we offer a full free site survey and also advice and training to our clients.
“It’s more than just selling, we provide a service, keep clients informed of changing legislation, new products, ensure their cleaning regime is up to date and meet their business requirements.”
