It’s always fascinating to spend time talking to the people who attend our Discovery Days and find out why they are considering becoming part of our franchise network.
We thought we’d heard everything in meetings with people from all walks of life but one fella we met on Tuesday stood out.
To say this guy’s CV was impressive is an understatement. He has been a big hitter in corporate telecoms and has set up huge operations in Europe, Asia and America.
So it did rather beg the question why Apollo Blinds? He said he was coming back to the UK to be with family and saw the way the wind was blowing with the UK economy and realised window blinds was his opportunity. This, he explained, was because whatever the state of the housing market homeowners will always need blinds. If homeowners don’t move they improve and if they do they make their new home their own.
He also explained that the strength of the brand and the quality of the products (see pics) was what sets Apollo Blinds from national and local competitors. And that’s why he was talking to us.
We can’t deny it was music to our ears but we also saw it as a huge compliment to our network of Apollo people all over the UK. Our teams have already recognised the opportunity to build prosperous businesses with us to help homeowners right across the UK make their homes beautiful with affordable window blinds from Apollo.
