The first franchisees to join the Prokil network have shared their experiences of working with the damp and timber specialist franchise.

Nathan and Wai were the first ambitious entrepreneurs to join Prokil. Both coming from backgrounds in the retail industry, they have been retail store managers for over a decade. Nathan was a store manager for Sainsburys, Iceland and Superdry, while Wai was a store manager for Currys, Argos and Iceland.

Like many franchisees, they dreamed of the freedom and flexibility that comes with being your own boss. Nathan said:

After many years of being managers and following the strict regime and adhering to the corporate world, we wanted to venture into a business where we could make the decisions and take control of our own destiny.

The pair decided to take the franchise route, as they didnt have any previous experience in the construction industry and wanted to be able to receive guidance whenever they needed it.

He continued: Having the support network, people there to offer and share ideas, was the major incentive to go down the franchise route.

When asked why they chose to invest in a Prokil franchise, Nathan said:

After an initial conversation regarding the business structure, Prokil ticked a lot of the boxes we were looking for. A business that had a proven track record, passionate owners and a successful brand in their current regions, all wrapped up in a business that had huge profit potential.

Nathan noted how the Managing Director of Prokils sheer enthusiasm and dedication to the development of the brand was a big reason why they chose to invest.

After speaking with Carlo (MD of Prokil) in particular, the passion behind his ambition and drive to make the franchise a success, gave us the confidence that the support network would be in place and their ambitions matched exactly what we were looking for.

And they were certainly not disappointed by the training and support they received once becoming franchisees.

The support has been what we expected and has never fallen short of what was discussed in the early meetings. As mentioned, the passion shown in ensuring the success of our franchise has not fallen away and this has helped us achieve what we have so far.
