Ambience Venue Styling (Teesside)
Emma had worked in retail for 12 years in stores such as Paul Smith and PANDORA.
What Emma has to say about being an Ambience franchisee…
“Starting a business can be a very daunting experience and to know that we were joining a well-established and proven national network made our decision a lot easier. It’s comforting to know you have support from the very start, not only from Head Office but from other franchisees too. Nothing is too much trouble for Head Office; they help you with any aspect of starting up your business and getting it established. I would work long hours in my previous employment and could not see the benefits. Now, we can be our own boss and know that all the work we put in is going to benefit ourselves. Working from home means we also get to spend more time with each other.”
“Right from our very first enquiry, Head Office were really helpful, sending us as much information as they could to help us make a decision on whether to go ahead. When we offered to meet them at Head Office they were so friendly and made us feel at ease straight away. The buying journey was painless and effortless. They could not have given us any more information and could not have been more helpful. They even sent us statements from other stylists on why they made the decision. So far it is has been everything we had imagined and more. Especially learning new things about our business and how to make it grow.”
“We can see our business growing more and more each day which is very rewarding. The support from Head Office is impeccable. I never thought that being a part of a network would be so supportive and beneficial. Everyone is happy to help each other, offer advice and celebrate each other’s successes. If you don’t know something, just ask. Nothing is ever too silly and there will always be someone who knows the answer or who can help – both Head Office and franchisees – It’s like a little Ambience family.”
