Helping others has led to success for Ableworld Southampton INVESTMENT LEVEL: £29,950


Southampton store A


t its fourth annual franchise conference in March, Ableworld, the country’s largest mobility retailer, was pleased to announce


Ableworld Southampton as their Emerging Franchise of the Year. The conference was held at South


Cheshire College where Ableworld has strong community ties. Last year they endowed the college by setting up two training rooms, replicating a hospital room and an elderly person’s home. The training rooms are kitted out with specialist mobility


and homecare products from Ableworld. Being part of the community and helping others is at the heart of what it means to be a successful Ableworld franchisee. The very essence of the job is to help customers with issues like mobility and other health and age-related conditions. Jeff Newman, who accepted the award on behalf of Ableworld, Southampton, had been a milkman before he became a franchisee. In his previous job he had witnessed several injuries and mobility issues suff ered by elderly customers, and knew how vital the products and services off ered by Ableworld were. Jeff teamed up with his son Steven, and his business partner Chris, who had been in the building trade. Together they purchased an Ableworld franchise for the Southampton region and opened their doors in May 2014. Presenting the award, franchise


director Paul Boniface praised Ableworld,


Southampton’s commitment and performance. Paul said: “As well as having many letters of appreciation from grateful customers, Jeff and the team have out- performed all our business objectives since they opened.” Looking to the future, Jeff said: “We looked at moving into other areas like the specialist side of the business but we would like to concentrate on building our current customer base.” How does Jeff feel about owning the franchise? “It has met all our expectations,” he said. “Especially the satisfaction we get from providing the right products for our customers.”
