A second BCR Associates franchise owner has hit a turnover of more than £100,000.
BCR Associates has revealed that Kim Harris (pictured) joined the franchise after 35 years in fashion retail and 16 months on from launching his business he has achieved a £100,000 turnover.
As a BCR Associates franchise owner Harris helps businesses to realise profits by identifying savings in their business spend. He said: “When I first saw the BCR Associates business model I was attracted by the fact that the business did not charge clients anything and the customer received 100 per cent of the savings realised. This seemed like an excellent selling point and that has proved to be the case. We have been very busy building up our client base and have realised some huge savings for our clients. For example, a private school in the South East asked us to look at ways of saving money on their electricity bill and we realised a saving of £67,240. Another example is a London club for business professionals where we saved them over half of their £33,500 annual gas bill (which equated to 54 per cent).
“The future is very bright for us. We now have a strong client base and no matter what the markets do I have a stable residual income. For example, should electricity prices rocket, even if I am unable to realise any savings for my customer, I will still earn an income from supplier commission fees. Meanwhile my customer doesn’t have to pay me for the review and has peace of mind that they are still on the best contract for their business.”
Chris Battin Director of BCR Associates said: “Kim was the second franchise owner to come on board and I am delighted to see him join the 100 club. As a member of the 100 club and in recognition of his success, Kim has received a luxury weekend break in Cornwall.
“We know our business model is strong and it is great to have this confirmed when our franchise owners realise the successes we predicted for them at the start.”
