Brad and Annette Weber have served our country for over 60 combined years in the Army! Military veterans have proven to be very successful franchisees – and Supercuts was impressed with the Webers’ leadership backgrounds. Following is the Webers’ own story of “making their business ownership dream come true!” Congratulations Brad and Annette – and THANK YOU for your outstanding service to our country!
“For several years my wife and I talked about opening our own business and with my impending retirement from the Army we felt now was a good time. I attended an SBA “Boots To Business” workshop at Fort Jackson, S.C., in September 2013, and that is where I met Cathey Petkash with FranNet of the Carolinas, who presented information on franchise ownership. It didn’t take long to realize that I needed a Franchise Specialist, or as I call it a franchise coach, and Cathey was that perfect fit.
“Cathey kept me grounded and focused, and ensured that I was covering my bases during my information research phase. After more than 6 months of ‘Doing My Due Diligence’ on franchisee opportunities, my wife and I decided on SUPERCUTS Hair salon for our franchise. We selected SUPERCUTS Hair Salon for several reasons, but the main reason was the comfort factor that we felt working with the SUPERCUTS team. The enthusiasm we felt from them and the fact that they have been franchising for more than 30 years secured the deal. After all, our success will depend on our partnership with our Franchisor.
“If there was a bit of experience I would share with someone considering becoming a franchisee regardless of the type of business, it would be: take your time and be patient, it is a long process that is not meant to be rushed and is more time consuming than most people realize. Talk with other franchisees and learn from them – they have been where you are and they are where you want to go. Finally, listen to your franchise coach – they make a huge difference.
“Good luck and I hope to see you in a SUPERCUTS Hair Salon getting one of those quality haircuts that only we can provide.”
