London, United Kingdom, May 01, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Pals4Pets has a new franchisee, Helen Alvarez, who from 1 June will be providing Pals4Pets professional pet care services in South-West London. Helen will be looking after existing and new clients in Battersea, Clapham, Wandsworth and Putney.
Helen was won over by the professionalism and experience of Pals4Pets team, as well as the fact that they offered larger territories than their competitors. She likes the very hands-on approach to training which is tailored to the individual franchisee’s needs.
Helen originally studied geology, working out on the oil rigs in the North Sea and more recently as an analytical researcher. With no previous business experience, Helen will embrace all the mentoring and pastoral support that Pals4Pets offers to fulfil her dream of making a success of her own business.
"I was attracted by the fact that my role will evolve from being hands-on and caring for pets to a more managerial format. Pals4Pets is ultimately a business model and the bulk of my time will be spent on marketing, recruiting sitters and looking after clients. I truly believe this is a unique and very exciting opportunity."
It took less than six weeks and four meetings for Helen to make her decision to invest in Pals4Pets. During that time, Helen spent a Discovery Day at Head Office and spoke to other franchisees and was encouraged by their universal enthusiasm.
Helen is aware that there is competition in her area, and is ready to show clients what differentiates her business from the competitors.
"I like the fact that my hard work will grow the business and if it happens at the pace I am expecting, I would not rule out purchasing a contiguous franchise area," she concludes.
