Franchise Opportunity for Ex Military

On the day, founder Chris Rocker and other member of the Just Shutters team will be on hand to answer questions from would-be franchisees. “Running a Just Shutters franchise could provide an excellent option for ex-services personnel whom are looking for a complete change of direction,” said Chris. “Our business model, systems and processes are well proven and people will be able to hear about the real-life experiences of members of the Just Shutters franchise network. They will also be able to see the quality of our products and get a feel for the business opportunity.”

Many of the skills people have picked up in the military, such as good communication and commitment to high standards, come in very handy when running a Just Shutters franchise. Chris added: “I’m certainly looking forward to the day and welcome the chance to explain why a Just Shutters franchise is such a fantastic opportunity for those with the necessary skills and attributes. You don’t need experience of fitting shutters to build a successful Just Shutters business. If you are passionate, motivated, have good DIY skills, the discipline to follow the proven system and are great with people, the rest really is straightforward!”

Entry to the event is free and on the day there will be 80-plus exhibitors who are seeking to employ ex-service personnel or offer self-employment franchise opportunities. More than 500 attendees are expected and service leavers, their families and veterans are all welcome to attend.

Chris and his team will also be at the National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham, which takes place on the 5th and 6th of October. Those who are interested in finding out more about the Just Shutters franchise opportunity can book a one-to-one meeting with Chris, all they need do is call on 01202 233744.

“I’ve been to many shows and exhibitions over the years and I’m really looking forward to Birmingham in October. Many excellent territories are still available, so people have the chance to run a recession-resilient business and join a successful network that continues to grow.”
