Tim and Nikki Bayley are a married couple who invested with the thriving B2B franchise back in 2001, and recently took the time to reflect on their impressive Business Partnership journey.
Tim and Nikki are about to celebrate their 20-year anniversary with Business Partnership. They’re franchisees for Business Partnership Birmingham and Warwickshire, with roles as Regional Partner and Manager of Sales and Administration respectively. Even after so long with the business franchise, the couple reported that they continue to feel passionate about the work, and are thrilled to help their wide variety of clients achieve their goals.
According to Tim, “One of the best things about being a Regional Partner with Business Partnership is helping people [to do the above]. We can offer a more professional and personal service to our clients with truly local representation and knowledge of the local marketplace. For many people, owning a business is like having a child they have reared and there’s an emotional element to selling. As a broker, you must understand that. Even after 20 years, when a sale or purchase is completed, we still have the same sense of achievement.”
In Nikki’s words, “We had grown disenchanted with the corporate world and decided it was time to buy a business of our own. We had looked at almost every option available and considered all avenues, but we knew we wanted to start local. We saw the advert for a franchise territory with Business Partnership and, because of my sales background and Tim’s, project management background, we thought it would be the perfect fit for us. The security of the business being a franchise was a bonus.”
If you’d like to benefit from that same security – and you’re feeling inspired to action by Tim and Nikki’s impressive 20-year success story – you can become a Business Partnership franchisee for a minimum initial investment of £25,000.
