Season 7 Episode 2 | Fibrenew: The Rewards of Resales with Steve Geddes 

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!
