Electrical franchise Mr Electric signed three new franchisees at the recent National Franchise Exhibition.
The show, which took place at the NEC in Birmingham, is attended by thousands of budding entrepreneurs each year looking for the right franchise.
Having already welcomed 15 new franchisees so far this year, Mr Electric has now also sold the Durham and north-east regions.
Clive Houlston, who has led the successful Bromsgrove-based firm for over 11 years, was delighted with how quickly they found suitable franchisees.
“Welcoming a new franchisee on board after just one day at the franchise exhibition proves that interested parties are wising up to the fact that franchising with Mr Electric is an extremely viable way to secure a new business venture.
More resistant to recessions than other businesses, Mr Electric franchisees shouldn't be too fearful, adds Houlston.
“Even taking into consideration the current economic conditions, it’s certainly not all doom and gloom for those wanting to become their own boss, as we offer expert advice and support within our tried and tested model.”
