I’ve been with Snap-on since 2004 and became franchise manager in 2012. Despite 8 years’ experience with one of the UK’s largest franchisors, I felt my knowledge about the wider industry was limited. I wanted to understand all matters that affect a franchise business. It was this quest for knowledge that led me to undertake the QFP. The programme offered the opportunity to learn sound theory to compliment my company knowledge and engage in best practice with other franchisors. So much so that my entire franchising team are now undertaking the QFP. It’s important that our existing network and any potential franchisees have confidence that we are qualified professionals and experts in our field.
