Since establishing the franchise in 2012, Clear Brew have welcomed over 50 franchisees to the team. To celebrate 10 years of franchising, they are sharing Stan and Christine’s journey from the Northern coast of California to becoming Clear Brew Norwich.
As well as enjoying the lovely sunshine on the Northern coast of California in Wine Country, Stan and Christine both had successful careers. Stan worked in Casino management for over 30 years. Meanwhile, Christine pursued a career in property management. This all changed when Stan and Christine realised they were going to have to leave their life in the US behind.
A few years ago, Stan and Christine had to make a difficult decision and start planning their move from the US to the UK. Sadly, Stan’s Mother became ill and this prompted Stan and Christine’s move to the UK in March 2019 where they then became caretakers for Stan’s Mother. Overall, the process of moving from California to Norwich took 5 months. During this time, Stan began to research their options and form ideas for their new careers in the UK.
When the idea came to Stan one morning, he excitedly woke Christine to tell her the plan. Intrigued by his excitement, Christine listened as Stan explained about the Clear Brew beer line cleaning franchise he had found. Alongside their interest in what Clear Brew has to offer, both Stan and Christine are huge beer lovers and therefore decided to make an enquiry. They reached out to Managing Director of Clear Brew, Stephen Trezona and were captivated by his contagious passion and enthusiasm. Stan and Christine visited Clear Brew’s central office in Falmouth, Cornwall. They were sold on the new adventure, and it accommodated their new circumstances.
Stan and Christine firmly believe that "professionals who are confident are great leaders and earn the respect and confidence of others. Hence, why we are a part of an awesome company and all-star team!"
Stan and Christine had a journey filled with hardships, heartaches, excitement and opportunities. Although their background was not specifically in the industry, the skills they gained and their enthusiasm for Clear Brew enable them to be successful franchisees. With the support of Clear Brew, they have been able to grow their business and are continuing to evolve.
As Christine states, "We may come from different experiences and backgrounds, but we share one common goal, Clear Brew and we are both excited and happy to be on this adventure together!"
