Graeme's gardening business
I recently moved with his family to the UK from Zimbabwe to invest with Anita, the Wimbledon Ed's Operator, in an established Ed’s business in Worcester Park, Surrey. I have known Anita for many years and found out about Ed’s through her. It was clear to me that she had developed quite a scale of a garden services business. She also clearly really enjoys what she does. When the chance to buy the Worcester Park business arose, I had no doubt that it was the right move to make. It was clearly a very good business to invest in, within a respected and well-established garden services franchise business. It also fitted perfectly with my aspirations for a healthy, outdoorsy job. I am used to wide-open spaces in Zimbabwe. I couldn’t stand the thought of a job where I was cooped up in an office all day. I’ve had lots of support through the buying process from Anita, the vendor, Tim, and Ed’s of course. I feel very well supported and I have found the buying process a lot less scary than one would imagine. We've only just started and I'm sure that exciting times lie ahead.

I've got young children with intensive healthcare requirements. For a franchise business to work for me I really needed the franchisor to take into account my unusual circumstances and let me structure things so it could work for me. I knew I was prepared to work really hard and could build a great ..
Before joining Ed’s I was a European Sales Director for a large American Company which involved a lot of travel and my health was beginning to suffer. My wife was frequently telling me that she would rather I was fit, healthy and alive than a successful businessman who was ill and highly stressed...
