Former locksmith picks an exciting new career with etyres Leeds


Feb 10, 2017

When locksmith Andrew Whitehead decided to pick a new career, he knew research was the key to finding the right opportunity to meet all his needs.

And after making extensive enquiries Andrew realised an etyres Franchise would unlock the door to a successful new business venture.

The leading online mobile tyre fitting franchise offered Andrew the freedom to be his own boss, with the benefits of being part of a business with a tried-and-tested formula and a brand leader in its industry.

Andrew, 40, explained: “I searched the internet for opportunities and narrowed it down to four potential businesses, but etyres was the one that met all my needs.  The price was right; I knew I could do the work; the territory was the perfect size and although selling plays an important role in growing the branch, it doesn’t require cold-calling, which doesn’t appeal to me.

“I already had experience running a business, so I knew what to expect with most of the admin work, but I can take full advantage of the dedicated etyres Head Office teams to help in areas that are new to me, like online marketing strategies and VAT returns.”

etyres has been at the forefront of transforming and leading the way tyres are sold and fitted across the UK for more than 20 years. Its van-based turnkey operation is built on solid foundations, which have been tried, tested and honed since the company was launched in 1992.

Its nationwide network of franchised branches deliver a mobile service to customers at their home or work. Orders are placed on the etyres e-commerce website, mobile site or by calling the national sales team, which operates seven days a week to capture maximum sales. All the work is carried out from a van equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, keeping operating overheads low.

From the outset Franchise Owners can expect to achieve gross profit margins in the region of 25% and the most successful branch turns over in excess of £1.5 million a year.
