Ableworld Gloucester is owned by Conway Davies who operates his mobility superstore and stairlift business from the town’s historic docks. Conway could see there was a demand for providing quality products and services to the ever-growing elderly and disabled market:
“I first started to think about mobility issues when my partner Jackie began looking for products that helped satisfy her elderly father’s needs. She didn’t find it easy to find good quality products, and just as importantly good quality advice.”
Having identified a growing market Conway was immediately drawn to the Ableworld franchise offering.
“I’ve always aspired to owning my own business. After meeting the founder of the company, and the franchise team I couldn’t help but realise how passionate they were about helping people, and this seemed like a great opportunity for me to get involved in, offering a much needed service in a very worthwhile sector.”
As this goes to press, Conway’s store will be opening for its first month of trading. After completing Ableworld’s comprehensive training programme, Conway, his store staff and engineer will be joined by a member of the dedicated franchise support team for the first two weeks. This, combined with a substantial marketing launch pack all stand Conway in good stead to get off to a flyer!
A trusted brand with a proven business model, Ableworld is expanding across the UK and is looking for franchise partners who wish to run an ethical retail business in a growing sector.
