“You have guaranteed work as well as the support from Head Office. I started with the Brighton territory in 2013 but it is going so well I have also invested in two other territories along the South Coast. We are now building our own new offices to support the larger business, with 14 engineers and related support staff!"
Tony Jeeves, Metro Rod Brighton franchisee

“I love what I do and am proud of what I have achieved – I am thankful to my team and Metro Rod for the support that they have given to me. Although I do a great deal of local marketing, I get guaranteed work from Metro Rod with their National Accounts. Metro Rod also looks after all my invoicing and I have a very low level of debt due to their credit control service and my personal efforts. The support of a franchisor and franchise network would be difficult to match on my own!”
Tricia Craig, Metro Rod franchisee for the North East

"Becoming Metro Rod Cumbria was simple and painless. Metro Rod introduced us to important new clients including Hilton Hotels, BUPA and JD Wetherspoons, which we never could have got without Metro Rod’s support.”
