“Before buying a FAST-FIX franchise, I worked in a repair shop in a major department store and after working in that store for 3 years, I realized the money making potential in this business; the profit margin in this business was unheard of.
Then, on one New Years Eve, I got a call from my boss and he said he could not afford to have me on the payroll anymore and that he was letting me go. That was the call that changed my life.
FAST-FIX already had a store in Miami, Florida (Dadeland Mall) and I went to the owner and asked him if I could work for him. He said that he was not hiring at that time. I told him that I knew the business very well and I could improve his sales – he told me to prove it to him.
We agreed that I would work for him for one month and he would pay me 5% of the total sales at the end of the month, if I could improve his sales by $1000 or more (as he was averaging about $17000 at that time). I was so confident that I could do it that I took him up on his offer. You want to know what happened? I worked open to close that whole month and we did more than $23,000 that month an increase of over $6,000.
To make a long story short, I worked with the FAST-FIX owner for three months while I negotiated with the FAST-FIX headquarters for the opportunity to own my own FAST-FIX store. I opened my own store in Melbourne, Florida in 1991 and since then have never looked back. FAST-FIX is all I know and I will always be grateful to FAST-FIX because I have come a long way since 1991.
FAST-FIX has fulfilled my dreams. Today I can afford almost anything I want.
My future plan includes opening a few more FAST-FIX stores and at present I am training my current employees and doing a lot of role playing with them so that one day they can successfully run and manage my existing store, while I get busy looking for other FAST-FIX franchised stores in different areas.
I can go on and on talking about FAST-FIX. I truly enjoy being a part of the FAST-FIX family and can assure all future owners, if they put their heart and soul into this business and work every minute towards making money, they will give themselves and their families a very secure future.”
