aspect.co.uk appoints franchise guru on Wed 5th October, 2011

Leading London-based property maintenance and refurbishment company, aspect.co.uk, has appointed franchise specialist, Bev Regan, to run its newly established franchise division.

In July 2011, aspect.co.uk launched its franchise business, commencing its national roll out, and its bid to become the UK’s leading property maintenance and refurbishment brand. With the tagline ‘one call property care’, aspect.co.uk manages all maintenance issues, from the drains to the roof and everything in between, for domestic properties, bars, restaurants, offices and business parks. An award-winning business, the company offers a 24-hour call out service, 365 days per year.

Bev Regan brings more than 25 years’ experience across the franchising sector; both as a franchisee and franchisor – working in the retail and service industries. She was a franchisee for more than 18 years working with the brand Tumble Tots, and during this time she took the business from a young brand to becoming a flagship operation covering Hertfordshire, Middlesex, North and Northwest London. She then went on to sell this business, and joined an American franchisor, The Little Gym International, as its UK and Irish manager – here she successfully introduced a new concept to the UK and Irish markets. In this role, she sourced and awarded franchises and mentored franchisees, supporting them to grow and to develop their skills and businesses. Following this, she then took on the role of European operations manager at Nevada Bob’s Europe – another successful franchise business.

Today, Regan brings her 360 degree knowledge of the franchising system to aspect.co.uk. She will take what co-founders, William Davies and Nick Bizley, have developed and build this into a franchise network. Managing director, William Davies, commented:

“Bev comes with a wealth of experience and contacts, and she will be responsible for overseeing the launch of our first pilots over the next month. She will manage the smooth running of each from an operational, technical and marketing perspective, and will make sure that solid foundations are put in place. We are confident that her involvement will speed up the overall roll out process, and we look forward to the exciting opportunities which lie ahead.”

Bev Regan added: “It’s a well known fact that 95 percent of franchises succeed, and that banks are more confident when it comes to investing in this process, as opposed to new business start ups.

“I am delighted to have been brought in to launch aspect.co.uk’s franchise business – this represents an exciting time for the company. 2012 will be planned around the success of the pilots, and finding more partners which meet the strict criteria to be awarded an aspect.co.uk franchise opportunity. This offers potential franchisees the chance to be their own boss and to develop a thriving business that will generate a healthy income. Success will be based on hard work and determination, but it will come to those willing to invest their time and energy.”

Two types of franchise will be awarded – the first based on a single trade franchise, and the second on a management franchise – covering multi-trades. aspect.co.uk franchises will operate under the successful www.aspect.co.uk brand, and franchisees will be provided with systems, and management support. Guidance will be given by the management team, which has already successfully built the business and who understand the key drivers for success in the industry.
