“I want profitable franchisees who are raving fans of the brand they have engaged with, as it provides them with strong profit results, and jobs for the local community they are in. That also means being fully self-sufficient from its founder (me), so that it achieves profitable results for its franchisees, it’s employees and its shareholders,” says Nicola Mills, Founder and CEO of Pacific Retail Management.
