“My area covers a part of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and a small piece of Berkshire (Newbury area). One of the pleasures of my territory is its magnificent countryside, now I can actually see the seasons come and go. I can fit my work around my life now and not the other way around. The OPC franchise really allows me to enjoy free-time activities, such as walking my dog. I am also finally flexible enough to enjoy my family life whilst still making sure all my customers are serviced properly.” Steve Pym, Exiting Franchisee
