An exciting time for Just Shutters as we welcome on board yet another new franchisee this year.
Tom Parrott and his wife Brooke have taken the helm of Just Shutters Hertfordshire franchise. Tom has all the makings of the ideal franchisee; he has worked for his own family business in Florida for many year, specialising in the design and manufacture of plantation shutters.
An expert with a passion for both the creative and hands on side of the business, Tom is looking forward to getting out in the field. He has just spent two weeks with our expert team in Dorset for intensive training.
Not only do we provide the very best training in shutter design and installation; something Tom had a head start in, we also train and support our franchisees in all other areas of the business; sales, marketing, systems and our bespoke software.
While Tom’s experience was evident from day one, he admitted ‘In the US the houses were all new builds with standard sized windows. The UK however proves more of a challenge with interesting shapes and older properties. Nothing seems to be ‘standard’ which is an extra challenge I am enjoying, and one that plays to my creativity.’
The team have really enjoyed having Tom around and are confident he is more than prepared to take the reins on our already established area of Hertfordshire.
Simon Osterloh, Managing Director, says; ‘Tom is a great chap to have around, he is friendly and confident and already has the skills needed for the role. We look forward to great things for the pair.’
So, the only thing left to do is raise a big Just Shutters welcome and say ‘welcome on board’.
