Richard Hopper is taking Just Shutters into new territory, becoming MD of Just Shutters Cheshire and South Manchester. After years working in the pharmaceutical delivery business, Richard wanted to start a new venture and build something of value for himself and his family for years to come.
Just Shutters successfully established itself from its HQ in Dorset and Hampshire and spread organically and quickly across the South. Proving the business model through its Head Office’s reputation and economic success, Just Shutters soon became the fastest growing shutter specialist – with franchisees from Cornwall to Kent, from Devon to Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.
Taking the company from a south-based business into new territories up north heralds a new chapter in the company’s journey. “We were very safe in the South,” says Chris Rocker, Founder of Just Shutters.
“We were in our comfort zone; knowing and dominating our market came very naturally to Just Shutters. Taking the step further north meant we had to push ourselves, our resources, and take a real step forward as a company. We had to expand the reach of our marketing, push our support systems and deliver our promises and offerings to our franchisee from a much more national perspective.
“This is a challenge we have embraced and it has made us stronger and ready to take on franchisees in all areas of the UK.”
