A sensible commute - Ian's gardening business - and surrounding area


Ed's Garden Maintenance welcomes Ian Waters who has taken on a franchise business covering Norwich and Broadland.Ian, a father of two has spent 25 years working in London. He has a background in IT project management, and for the past three years has worked as an IT contractor.On joining Ian said,"My five hour daily commute meant that I was hardly getting to see my two children aged six and seven. Whilst intellectually challenging, my work was not personally rewarding, and I wanted a healthier lifestyle. I've always had a love of gardening from being a teenager and explored a number of gardening related franchise opportunities. Ed's was the best fit; a good business model with good financials. I am looking forward to developing a sound business; becoming excellent at what I do then achieving financially what others in Ed's have achieved. There are some great role models within Ed's and I have already spent time with other franchisees including Matthew May in Folkestone, a finalist in this year's British Franchisee awards. I'd love to replicate what Matthew has achieved.Founder Ed Mauleverer added "We're delighted to welcome Ian as we now start to expand into territories outside of London and the South of England with our first franchisee in Norfolk."1 Sept 2014
