I chose Cookright after comparison with several other franchise businesses. I carefully weighed up the differentiating factors between Cookright and the others. My conclusion has proved to be right on target. My major requirement was to have direct control and be able to make my own decisions on a day-to-day basis. I wanted a steady income throughout the year with regular ongoing clients and a good income for my efforts, potential for growth, plenty of family time available and a comprehensive training scheme with all the equipment to do the job. I joined Cookright on 30 June 2003 and all of the above requirements have been more than fulfilled. I have an excellent relationship with my Master Franchisors and would recommend you give Cookright serious consideration.

Tracey comments that Cookright is the perfect business partner for them as there are no overheads, with the big added advantage of being their own bosses. Tracey says Tony is able to pop home in between jobs, and on occasions can re-schedule his run to fit in with special events that the children are taking part in. The one thing he and Tracey both enjoy and appreciate the most is being able to spend their weekends with their three young children.

Maurice says he is particularly pleased to be working for himself after years of having to deal with staffing problems. He says that when he walks into a client's premises and hears the daily grumblings of both staff and bosses, that he knows his choice to work for himself was a good one. He can happily walk out saying "have a great day" and know that he only has himself to admonish or praise! Having the business plan and back-up support of my franchisor in Palmerston North already in place is of course the necessary bonus!
