Ian's Gardening Franchise Business

A sensible commute

Norwich East and Broadland and surrounding area.

Norwich East and Broadland's franchisee - Ian

I've achieved many of the goals that I set out to when I joined Ed's. I have been able to tailor the work I do to the life I want. One of the advantages of running an Ed's business is your ability to take on as much or as little work as you want. Once your advertising is up and running, there is a constant stream of work available and you can take on more of the kind of work you want to do. It is up to you. I can bring creativity and imagination to what I do and I still enjoy being outdoors and delivering the garden services. I have a great grouping of regular customers and my days are always varied and challenging. I wanted work that was more personally rewarding and a healthier lifestyle. I'm pleased to say that's what I've got.

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
