Property care franchise Allkare has sold the Master Franchise for Ireland to Belfast-based entrepreneur Chris Gregg. Before joining the network, Chris operated a successful pizza delivery business and gained experience within the property repairs industry. With Allkare’s help, Chris will launch a pilot operation, on the outskirts of Belfast and plans to recruit franchise owners within 18 months.
Allkare company founder Peter Hargreaves said: The commencement of a new Master Licence is a huge commitment for both the franchisor and Master franchise owner. There’s added responsibility and a greater financial investment from both parties, so the fit has to be as near to perfect as possible.
“For me, the challenge was to find someone who could first build relationships with local insurers and loss adjusters, and then support a network of franchisees. Chris is the ideal Master franchise owner for Ireland because he has the right attitude; he’s the kind of person who will get off his backside and look for work rather than wait for it to fall in his lap. In my opinion, that’s the mark of a true businessman and entrepreneur.” More.
