August 09, 2011 // Franchising.com // Last month, Auditel welcomed their 200th signing -John and Denise Wilson. They are now the UK's largest Cost and Purchase Management Consultancy. Until recently, John was a senior Sales Manager for a company specialising in the defence industry. Denise had been in Risk Management for an investment company. Having chosen Auditel, they sped off to Head Office on their Harley-Davidson motorbikes, to sign the franchise agreement!
Denise recalls:"John and I wanted to start our own business, through a franchise. We considered various formats and thought that cost management worked best for us. From our first meeting with Auditel, we were impressed with the team, the information we were given, how our questions were answered and the support we received." John enthused about the training. "It was professional, engaging and confidence inspiring. I had high expectations and those expectations were exceeded every day. I am really keen to get going!"
