Fibrenew Loudoun Michael CarterWith a mobile model and flat fees, Fibrenew is differentiating itself in the franchise market

Michael and Dianna Carter, of Loudoun County, Virginia purchased their Fibrenew franchise in 2001 and have since developed strong relationships with car dealerships and thus built a successful business restoring leather, plastic and vinyl materials for the automotive industry.

Automotive Seat Restoration FibrenewAfter moving out of the telecommunications sector into role of driver at UPS, Michael was keen to find the perfect self-employment opportunity. He found it with Fibrenew, a franchise that fit both his lifelong passion for cars and a desire to be able to enjoy his growing family.

“When my wife and I first considered a Fibrenew mobile franchise, we realized we could have both the financial freedom we sought and the flexibility to be available to our kids’ little league schedules, riding lessons and concerts at school,” says Michael.

It was the flexibility of Fibrenew’s mobile business model, which allows franchisees to build a business around their schedule, that attracted Michael and his family to Fibrenew. This, along with the flat-fee, no-royalty model secured their decision to begin their new venture with the brand.

Fibrenew, because of the flat-fee model, doesn’t penalize growth; the earning potential is, therefore, unlimited and this allows the business to grow easily and in a variety of ways. For Michael, this has included adding a full-time technician this year, lending more flexibility and freedom to the family. It also includes part-time work for his 16-year-old son that fits around his school schedule.

While he’s long been in love with the car industry Michael recognizes that, after a decade of establishing solid growth, there is still financial opportunity and growth in each of his territories by adopting new products and niches that Fibrenew caters for.

“Opportunity grows with us. Fibrenew allows me to build a business where I’m most comfortable, but also fully supports and provides a platform for me to push myself further,” says Michael.

Michael describes Fibrenew’s annual regional seminars as the best part of a varied and robust support system and says that they reinforce what it takes to be successful by keeping owners motivated and inspired to grow as big as possible. The seminars also showcase new products and techniques that keep the organization at the forefront of the market. Success stories, challenges and opportunities to network with peers are truly invaluable for Fibrenew franchisees. Michael attributes a great deal of his ongoing motivation to these gatherings with his franchise family.

Franchisees can access a robust set of training materials, develop traditional or new marketing programs, reach out for peer-to-peer support at any time and can tap into a rich resource of support through a one-of-a-kind apprenticeship program.

Fibrenew specializes in the restoration of leather and plastics, servicing the automotive, residential, aviation, marine, medical and commercial markets. If you are prepared to do what it takes to run a successful mobile restoration service business, Fibrenew wants to talk to you.

“My reclining sofa had a major fabric failure on one of the seat backs. Henry responded promptly to my email inquiry, gave me a fair estimate based on the photos I sent him. He came up removed the back, took it to the shop and returned it all for the quoted price. His workmanship is outstanding, frankly better than the original.”
