Matthew's Gardening Franchise Business

From red tape to green lawns

Folkestone and surrounding area.

Folkestone's franchisee - Matthew

Just a little summer update... It's been pretty much business as usual for me during the Pandemic. I've been as busy as usual over the summer, if not even a bit more so than usual. I think it is fair to say that this business is pretty much bomb-proof. If I can safely run my business through a Pandemic, I think it can cope with pretty much anything thrown at it.

I've been more successful with my Ed's business than I could ever have imagined. That hit home when I was a nominated for the bfa (British Franchise Association) Franchisee of the Year Award in 2014. I couldn't believe that I ended up being a Finalist in the competition. I knew I was running a really good business and that I thrived on being part of Ed's but to get that far in such a prestigious national competition was simply mind-blowing. I think it gave me confidence to make my Ed's business even more successful.

In my previous life, I managed a fencing plant and had a lot of management responsibility. I got so weary of bureaucracy getting in the way of progress and wanted to be able to be more proactive. Running my own business seemed the best way to get that. I looked closely at Ed's and it all seemed really professional - and it is what it seemed. The training and support are excellent. I truly believe that this is the best thing I have ever done. Now if I have a good idea I put it forward and, if the customer is convinced, I get the go ahead without all the politics. I joined Ed's because I wanted to take control of my own destiny and that's exactly what I am doing - and my business is developing brilliantly too.
