Case Study - Nicola Petty

Nicola Petty - ComputerXplorers franchiseeWhy did you choose to buy into a franchise?
I decided to buy a franchise business because of the many advantages. The business model has already been tested and proven, the time to get the business up and running is much quicker, there is great training and support, and also a network of fellow franchisees sharing knowledge and experience.

Why did you choose ComputerXplorers?
After deciding to look at franchises, I attended a NatWest franchise seminar which showcased a variety of franchises across different industries. I had already decided that I wanted a home-based business and ComputerXplorers was ideal – not only was it home-based, but it sounded like an excellent franchise, relatively new to the UK but well established in the US. ComputerXplorers was the only franchise I investigated further and I discovered that I would be joining at the latter stages of the pilot phase in the UK. I was also delighted to learn that the franchise is run in the UK by Nigel Toplis, who has very significant knowledge and experience of the franchise industry, and who is supported by a great team.

Do you have any advice to anybody considering ComputerXplorers as a franchise?
If you have general business experience, you believe you will be able to stay focused in a home environment and enjoy working with children, this franchise is an absolute must. The training and support provided have filled in the product, sales, marketing, teaching and other gaps I had and the general support and documentation available is fantastic. As a way to start your own business, a ComputerXplorers franchise makes it as easy as possible for you.
