After 12 years as a Royal Marine, having a fiancé and two young boys prompted Adam Carter to return to civilian life. Yet, while he liked the idea of being his own boss, he was all too aware of both his own lack of business experience and the large proportion of new businesses that failed within their first year.
“That led me to franchising which provides, in my opinion, the best of both worlds – you have the support and systems of an established and working brand whilst being in charge of your own operation,” he explains.
