ProSource Franchise Opportunity
I chose to become a ProSource franchise owner because I liked the proven systems that were available to me. I opened my first showroom almost nine years ago and have expanded to open four additional showrooms since then. ProSource really has assisted my business growth in many ways. I probably wouldn't have been able to do what I've done without their help.
You might start out with industry experience but not really know what you need to run a business. ProSource helps you with that by keeping you apprised of what's going on in the industry and in the market. If you're just one small store, there are a lot of difficult decisions that you would not know how to make without this type of franchise support.
To succeed, you have to have good people working for you, and ProSource helps you find those people. It can be really hard to find the right staff, but they have a program for finding and interviewing good candidates, which has definitely given our showroom a boost.
You need to take advantage of the support ProSource offers for doing business in this market. When we had a downturn, they were there to show us where to tighten up, help manage important figures, and speak to us about how the cash flow is going and what we needed to keep our eye on when looking at our financial statements. They also gave us new opportunities for growth, like expanding our selection to offer cabinets. They test their programs so we can avoid mistakes.
