Franchise Success Stories
Simon Proctor is a carpet layer by trade and hails from England. When he first moved to Australia he got a job as a carpet cleaning technician with Electrodry and happily did that for 3 years. He married a Perth girl and bought an Electrodry franchise in 2012 in the Perth area for a new challenge and to build a business that would support his growing family. Simon is 36, has a 2 year old boy and a little girl on the way in October of this year. He loves having the freedom of being his own boss which allows him to schedule time for his family life, surfing and to work on his 12 handicap in golf. Simon says that the Electrodry process really works and is well supported by excellent advertising and a great booking system. He has every intention of renewing his franchise and carrying on with the company. Business is good and he feels as if he has a bright future ahead of him.
Michael Nicholas seems familiar to most Electrodry customers because he has been the face of Electrodry, featuring on many print and television advertisements for many years, but he’s not just a pretty face! Michael is also the Newcastle West franchisee of Electrodry Carpet Dry Cleaning and has been since 2006. Previously a publican who became disenchanted with his work, Michael now enjoys what he does because each day is different and being a franchisee has allowed Michael the freedom to work for himself and by himself – which gives him peace of mind. Business is good and he would encourage younger guys looking for the next challenge in their lives to consider becoming a franchisee. Michael’s Labrador, Adam, is his constant companion and has been known to go to work with him. Michael rescued Adam at 8 months from mistreatment and now at 13 years old this quiet, likable dog is part of the Electrodry family.
