Autosmart welcomes Andy Cooling to our dynamic UK network of Autosmart business owners. Andy started trading in November in the Somerset and Devon area and has already got off to a flying start.
No stranger to hard work and running his own businesses, Andy started earning a wage at a young age, milking cows on a local farm.
He later progressed to driving lorries, then setting up and running his own road sweeper business and then more recently a UK Truck Clean franchise.
His home-life has kept him quite busy too, as Andy and his partner Zoe are the proud parents of 6 daughters!
It wasn’t until Andy started chatting to Rob Whitby, the local Autosmart franchisee in Weston that his interest spiked in the available Taunton and Tiverton franchise.
Andy tells us, “I’ve used Autosmart products for a while through the truck clean business and once I started to look into the franchise, I could see that it was a fantastic business opportunity that was right on my doorstep, so it was a very easy decision for me to take.
“I’m already familiar with some of the daily essential products, such as Cobalt, Tango and Active XLS and whilst on Autosmart’s induction, I learnt more about some of the other specialist detailing products, such as Matrix ceramic coating; which I am keen to introduce to my customers.
“I’m really happy to be part of the Autosmart team and I’m looking forward to settling into my new role; meeting all the customers and expanding the business in the future.
If you would like to become a business owner with Autosmart, we have some fantastic opportunities to take on an established business with repeat round of customers.
