Edâ€™s is delighted to welcome John Spencer on board. John has just joined Edâ€™s as our brand new Edâ€™s Operator in Maidenhead. This is as a result of our veteran Operator, Lucy Williams, selling her business to him.
This is what John has to say about coming on board â€œI am veryÂ excited about being part of Edâ€™s team and also about taking over Lucyâ€™s business. My background is in sales and I really wanted to get out of that Corporate environment and make a positive lifestyle change for me and my family. I knew that a garden maintenance franchise ticked all the boxes for what I was looking for. I considered several but as soon as I met Ed and the team I could see that Edâ€™s was a great franchise to be part of. They are very dynamic, professional, clearly know exactly what they are doing and explain everything clearly and in a very supportive and friendly way. They took their time to go through the details of the investment opportunity and it was easy to understand the value of their business model. I knew I would fit right in and that it was definitely the right franchise for me. The opportunity to purchase Lucyâ€™s business was the cherry on top – it means that Iâ€™ve got a good bank of high quality customers from day one and that makes me even more comfortable about any business risk. Lucy is clearly a very experienced Edâ€™s Operator, having joined Edâ€™s seven years ago, and I have great confidence in the quality of the business I am buying. Lucy will be taking her time in handing over the reins of the business to me, which will ensure a smooth handover. She will also helping with my general Edâ€™s training, which is great. I feel like I already know Lucy well as the process has been so thorough. Weâ€™ve just completed the paperwork and I canâ€™t wait to get started.â€
We wish both Lucy and John all the very best for the future.
