Welcome to the franchise network…

Stuart and Jacky Simpson are the proud owners of the first Ableworld store in Scotland.

The couple saw franchising as “the most reliable route to success” and like a lot of individuals were “fed up with the grind and working for someone else.” Their business is rewarding in more than one way:

“When I fit a stairlift, I can see that it has changed someone’s life, and seeing the relief on their face is so rewarding”
