Cost reduction franchise BCR Associates is continuing its successful recruitment drive with the appointment of another new franchise owner.

David Thompson from Brighton joins the business having already witnessed at first hand the benefits of franchising, as he previously owned a franchise operating in the care sector. Prior to running a successful franchise, Thompson held a number of roles within the NHS at a senior level as well as working as a management trainer and consultant delivering management skills training to businesses in the UK and Ireland. Thompson’s appointment follows his introduction to BCR Associates at this year’s British & International Franchise Exhibition in March 2011, and brings the total number of franchise owners in the BCR Associates network to nine.

Commenting on his decision to buy a BCR Associates franchise, Thompson said: “I was committed to running my own business and was looking for an opportunity where I could use my entrepreneurial skills while also building on my proven ability to respect a tried and tested franchise formula. For me there are two clear points of difference, which made BCR Associates stand apart from its competitors. The first is the fact that no charge is made to the customer for the initial review and the second, and arguably most important, is that 100 per cent of the savings are passed onto the client. In my mind, that makes for an incredibly powerful – and ultimately very honest – business proposition.

In addition to the actual core business model, one of the other motivating factors, which contributed to my decision to purchase a BCR Associates franchise was the clear commitment the company has to the training of its franchise owners. Not only is the training very comprehensive, it has been specifically developed to ensure a fast start launch programme for your business to ensure you start trading as quickly as possible to help recover your initial investment and get you on your way to reaching your business targets. The initial training has provided me with the confidence to start trading and while I am building on my knowledge base, I know that I can always rely on the huge bank of expertise and advice that is available from head office to back me up during the early launch phase of my business.”
