Used to looking deep into people’s eyes and seeing beyond the outward presentation of what’s in front of him, self-employed optician Paul Cross, was looking for a new venture. “I wanted a business I can grow and one which would become an asset for me in the future” Paul explains.
Starting a new business didn’t faze Paul when he chose to take on a Mac Tools franchise. Especially as he was moving out of an industry he knew and understood into something akin to a whole new world, but he didn’t consider this to be a blind spot to what he wanted to accomplish. So, like many before him, who opt for a franchise, Paul found the support of a clearly-defined, working business model, which Mac Tools offered, aligned well with his vision for such a drastic career move, and drove him to take the step.
“Mac offers a sensible business solution with great support, training and a clear business plan.” He says of what set Mac Tools apart from other franchise models he looked into.
About to set off in his van-office after the initial start-up training received with Mac Tools, Paul is hopeful of putting the training and business plan of a company which is part of the $12 billion Stanley Black and Decker organisation into action, and make the most of every opportunity as quickly as he can around Wolverhampton. “When I was doing my research, I didn’t see any other franchise offering such a high level of financial input, with clear outcomes available to me. I know hard work will bring me the contacts, while clear vision will keep me focussed on the end goal.” The chance to be his own boss in a market worth £150 million was too good a chance to miss.
