Success Stories

“I was looking at opening my own workshop of some sort and looked at a franchise as well. I chose franchising mainly for the structure. For me it just seemed the perfect fit and I haven’t looked back from buying a franchise.”
Warren D’cruz, Auto Masters multi-unit franchisee
“We bought the first InXpress franchise in Australia and started in our garage at home. We’ve really grown professionally come a long way in the past 10 years and we have the warehouses and the call centre and that sort of thing.”
Jason Hand, Wendy Hand and David Begg, InXpress franchisees
“I had worked a job that required long hours for an average wage, and it was very stressful. I tired of working for and answering to someone else. I wanted to be back in control and missed the training and camaraderie that came with EFM from years gone by. I briefly considered going out on my own, but when an opportunity came up to buy an EFM franchise that was just missing a little TLC, it was a no-brainer to come back.”
Jason Heshusius, EFM franchisee
