What our Franchise Owners say:

"Really, the training and learning never ends at Greensleeves.  There are regular training events all year, and we talk to each other all the time.  Everyone shares stories and advice and best practice.  I have new franchisees ring me all the time, asking me how to do this or that, or what systems I am using etc. It's good - there might be a lot of franchisees now, but it still feels like a small, friendly family business."
Oliver Wood, Greensleeves Huddersfield, North Sheffield & Wakefield

“I would say to anyone: take the opportunity!”
