Phil Johnson - Autosmart franchiseeAutosmart franchisee Phil Johnson already knew the benefits of running your own company before he decided to take the plunge:

My wife has her own business and I always envied her independence. Before Autosmart I worked as a manager with a large fleet rental company. I had a good salary but felt that there must be more to life. As time went on I realised that I too wanted the freedom of being my own boss.

When a local Autosmart franchise came up for sale I knew that this was the opportunity that I was looking for. I had always worked in the motor industry, so I knew that Autosmart had been around for a long time.

I’ve been a franchisee for 4 years now and am really glad that I made the move. I’ve grown the business substantially and it gives me a fantastic living.

Our products are consumables and customers use them day in, day out, every day. I visit my customers regularly to top up their supplies and to see how else I can help them. Over time I have built a strong relationship with many of them. It’s really satisfying to know that people appreciate the service that I offer and like the products that I provide.

I love the fact that my business takes me out and about, rather than sitting in an office. No two days are the same - you’d be amazed at the different types of company that use our products. I sell to everything from prestige car dealers, valeters, hauliers and motor bike dealers, through to engineers and funeral parlours. I even supply a bespoke furniture company.

Potential franchisees always ask if I would recommend an Autosmart franchise. My Autosmart business affords me a great lifestyle. And I’m not alone. The rewards are there for anyone who has the drive to work hard at building their own Autosmart franchise.
