Franchisee, England, UK
My own career started in the Merchant Navy as a Marine Engineering Officer after which I moved into the IT industry where I was employed for a number of years. Throughout this period I have always thought about running my own business and so I eventually took an early ‘retirement’. I then decided that for me Franchising would be the best route into business and undertook a lot of research looking at various Franchises before I came across NobleProg. I talked to Bernard, the Franchisor, and immediately liked what I heard in terms of how the business is structured the service it offers plus the enthusiasm of Bernard and his team, and so back in February 2011 I became a Franchisee in the UK. I have not for one moment regretted my decision which has been both profitable from day 1 and enjoyable (I now have my daughter working for me as a Training Co-ordinator). The help and support I get from the NobleProg team is first class and the business systems available to me as Franchisee makes the day-to-day running of the business a smooth operation.
Master Franchisee, Poland
I started the franchise in 2006 and it has really changed my life.
I came from non technical background with little business experience in over this period I have progressed to Master Franchisee and my earnings are much more than I anticipated.I received on going support and training from NobleProg and the chance to grow rapidly.
NobleProg allows me to have a flexible lifestyle in terms of family life. I have a seven year old son and I really appreciate their patience and support that they have given me over the years. I have the opportunity to work from home and in the office in Warsaw.
When I first started I didn't realise the potential and I am truly grateful to have been given this olive branch.

- Why did you choose to start a franchise with NobleProg in comparison to starting your own business?
Filip: It was a very attractive model, they have all processes in place and only ask for 10% of my revenue. They are also one of the biggest training provider in Poland. They have worked with a huge amount of blue chip companies. When I spoke to the director he was professional and had concise answers to all of my questions. Why try and beat them when you can join them?
