Steve Geddes parlayed his combined furniture repair and sales experience into a franchise business with Fibrenew. As Geddes found through the pandemic, there’ll always be a need for repairs. He took over a Kelowna-based Fibrenew location and began growing the business from a stagnant location to a top-ranking powerhouse.
In moving from a technician role into an operational management role, Geddes found his life changing in more ways than one.
On this episode, Geddes and our host Gary Prenevost of FranNet Canada discuss:
- The pros and cons of buying an existing franchise vs. a new build;
- Appealing to the highly educated consumers through the brand promise;
- Creating incentives and quality working environments in order to retain staff;
- and so much more!
