Singer launches Recognition Express franchise in Guildford

Recognition Express, which provides organisations with recognition goods, has launched an outlet in Guildford through franchisee Nick Manning (pictured, right, with Recognition Express Managing Director Nigel Toplis). A choral singer, Nick decided to leave his previous employment with a telecommunications company to open his own business and concentrate on his singing hobby.

'Singing is an important part of my personal life and played a key role in my decision to open the business,' says Nick. 'I've spent many years working hard as an employee of both large and small organisations and will continue to work hard for my new clients, but by becoming my own boss I can take control of my destiny and have more time than before to do the things I love.

'Being part of a franchise network is a great solution as it combines a proven, established business formula and support with complete independence. I'm also really looking forward to providing great products and high-quality customer service to my local business community.'

Nigel adds: 'Nick's experience in the telecoms industry combined with his desire for a better work-life balance make him an ideal franchise owner. I'm convinced his business will be a success and I hope that his passion for singing flourishes.'
