Franchisee comments

My Name is Charles David (Joe) RYAN, I was the first franchisee in the South Island and I am the southernmost franchisee in the world (at the moment) based in Oamaru. I started with Jim’s Test & Tag in 2009. When I met Neil, James & Jayne, I was impressed by a team that were both committed to each other and the Test & Tag ethos. To work with a bunch of people who are committed to your success is refreshing in this day and age. These are a good bunch and continue to inspire all who come in contact with them and members of Jims Test & Tag. Joe Ryan, Oamaru Franchisee 

I’m only just into my third month of being a franchisee with Jim’s Test & Tag. I cannot say it’s been easy gaining customers but like most new business it takes time to grow a customer business base. Putting in the hard yards at the beginning hopefully pays dividends later. I have found it much as it was described to me prior to joining. I have found the back up of my franchisor fantastic and he has been very supportive throughout. His enthusiasm and advice has been invaluable and it’s great to have him there to keep you motivated. Rob Hinckesman, Auckland Franchisee

I’d wanted to be self-employed for a very long time, and knew health and safety was a growing sector, but I simply couldn’t find the right opportunity until I came across Jim’s Test & Tag. Jim’s doesn’t do things by halves, and that initial training in Melbourne was conducted to highly exacting standards. It covers everything you need to know to get started, and with the support of the network here you’ll develop all the technical skills you need within the first year while building your business. Neville Phillips, Pukekohe Franchisee

I’m quite young in comparison with some of the other franchisees – many enjoy the business so much they carry on well past retirement age. The franchise provides a good return and gives you the flexibility and freedom to enjoy that boat or whatever. Paul McCully, Franchisee

I only wish I’d joined Jim’s a few years earlier! Darrell Webber, Franchisee
