Fibrenew Celebrates Substantial Growth at International Convention
Mobile leather, plastic, vinyl, fabric and upholstery repair franchise marks milestone in over 300 locations
BLACK DIAMOND, Alta., September 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Fresh off the major milestone of surpassing 300 locations, Fibrenew, the world’s largest leather, plastic and vinyl restoration franchise, celebrated with its franchisees at its international convention in Nashville early September. With 88% of the brand’s 301 franchisees present, it was a monumental opportunity to honor the sustainability and continued growth of Fibrenew for nearly four decades.
From individuals who have worked with Fibrenew for 37 years, to rookies just weeks into their journey with the brand, to women owners, veterans, power couples and those who make proof of exceptional teamwork within the brand, each franchisee was recognized at the Convention.
“It was important for us that each franchisee be recognized at the convention of Nashville because we wouldn’t have exceeded 300 locations if it hadn’t been for every single one of them,” said the Fibrenew President Jesse Johnson. “It was great to see so many of our franchisees in one place and celebrate this achievement together, from the very first franchise owner to now our 301st. We can’t wait to see how much more we can grow. »
Among the “rookies” in the crowd was Jorge Figueroawhose Kissimmee, Florida location is credited with pushing Fibrenew to reach the 300 location mark. Figueroa said the support he received from the entire Fibrenew team was instrumental in achieving his goal of opening up and serving customers in the Central Florida area just one month after training. Figueroa compared the convention to the Super Bowl and used it as an opportunity to learn from others who had been with the brand for decades.
“The openness and family atmosphere of Fibrenew, knowing that there are 300 other franchisees you can turn to for help, is exactly what brought me to the brand in the first place. “, said Figueroa. “I saw this convention as an investment in my business and in my future, especially to see all these other franchise owners in person and learn from their successes so early in my time here.”
In addition to the abundant amount of information learned at the convention, Figueroa says one of the biggest takeaways was learning about the Fibrenew podcast, which he now listens to regularly. The brand’s latest mini-series, Fibernew business modelsshowcases the different types of business models within Fibrenew, showcasing tips and business ideas from franchisees who have increased their location’s annual revenue at exponential rates.
Fibrenew looks to build on the momentum of substantial brand growth seen throughout the year, which has already seen more than two dozen franchise additions in the first two quarters alone.
