Q: How does it feel to be the most successful World Options franchise ever earning more than £600k+ this year?

“There is some sense of achievement, however growth is what our business is about so we will continue to drive new business through offering the best shipping solution we can and retain our customers through giving the best service we can provide. The team we have built all share in the excitement and pride in seeing the business grow. Ultimately without their commitment, hard work and their positive input it would not be possible”.

Q: You are our top franchise. How does it feel to be awarded with the millionaire’s row accolade at the Nationals? Will you be aiming from £1million gross profit next year?

“It’s a great feeling to be awarded Millionaires row. It highlights where we started and how hard we have worked. I like to see the success of others that are now challenging the top spot, it inspires and motivates all within the business to keep going for profitable growth.

£1 million GP is certainly our aim for 2019/2020, lots of work and many challenges along the way but it’s certainly possible”.

Q: Would you recommend World Options as a good franchise opportunity?

“World Options is a great business model, the way I see it we are still very young and have made mistakes along the way but each year we get stronger and stronger as a Franchise network. Like most opportunities to take full advantage requires hard work and resilience, this is not a part time business in my opinion and requires your full attention. A good understanding of the sales process, a little industry knowledge and a sincere approach to provide value to your customers. Then despite how fiercely competitive this industry is, you can build a significant and loyal customer base”.

Q: How does it feel to be one of the most successful franchisees ever in World Options and be amongst the top franchisees earning £250k+ a year?

“It’s feels amazing. There’s also a huge feeling and sense of achievement because of the journey we’ve taken to get here. Add to that the excitement of what we can yet achieve, there’s so much more growth to be had. These are very exciting times to be a part of World Options. It’s also proof that the model really does work……… if you have the desire and attitude to succeed along with the willingness to work hard. A lot of credit must go to my son Nathan and son-in-law Ross who manage the business, they’ve have both played a key part in seeing us achieve this amazing growth”.

Q: You are among our top three franchisees. How does it feel to be awarded with the millionaire’s row accolade at the Nationals?

“Living the dream! To think a small local business in the village of Lees, near Oldham, is turning over £1.3 million in annual revenue makes me feel proud, grateful and humble all at the same time. I often say “if Leland Mayall can do it, anyone can”.

Q: Would you recommend World Options as a good franchise opportunity?

“World Options works! It changes lives for the better. It’s an amazing business and concept to be a part of. I would recommend it for anyone willing to be consistent in working hard and smart. Follow and live the training provided and the model that is World Options. Do this…… and you will find lots of success!”

Q: How does it feel to be one of the most successful franchisees ever in World Options and be amongst the top franchisees earning £250k+ a year?

“We’re really pleased with the progress we have made particularly in the last 12 months. While reaching this milestone is good, we strive to improve, and build on the success that we’ve had to date. Being fourth spurs us on to work harder so that we can be the first in the next year or two”.

Q: How does it feel to be awarded with the millionaire’s row accolade at the Nationals?

“In truth for us Turnover is Vanity whereas Profit is Sanity and ultimately Cash is Reality. In turnover we were third but in margin we were second which excites us more".

Q: Would you recommend World Options as a good franchise opportunity?

“The work is hard and the road is long but the rewards are great if you can stick at it. In the first couple of years we were probably more concerned with wanting to be at the top rather than focussing on how we got there. We are now focussed on our growth and not worried about the others. World Options have been a huge support in maintaining our focus with annual reviews, regional events, various competitions and of course NSC with the awards”.
