Freedom & Flexibility: For Fibrenew Franchisees, Business is Personal

Written by Jill Abrahamsen for Franchise Consultant magazine

Unlike most other franchise brands, Fibrenew offers its franchisees a remarkable level of creativity and the opportunity for innovation in their work. The unique business model gives owners freedom of choice about the type of clients they pursue with tons of flexibility in their schedules. That freedom, combined with a warm and welcoming culture has been instrumental in propelling the mobile brand across North America, now with more than 300 locations. These happy Fibrenew franchise owners featured here weigh in on the culture and their experiences with the brand.

LOCATION: Fibrenew Palatine in Illinois

ON FIBRENEW’S CULTURE: Fibrenew’s culture is one where everyone works together and genuinely wants everyone to succeed.

WHY FIBRENEW: Fibrenew was particularly appealing because every day is different, I get to work with my hands, and I don’t have to pay more to the corporate office because of the flat monthly franchise fee.

THE BEST PART: The future of Fibrenew Palatine is 100% based on where I want to take it, and that is very freeing.

“My biggest regret is that I didn’t start my franchise 10 years sooner. It’s been the best career decision I’ve ever made.”

Sam and Lisa Orpilla

WHY FIBRENEW: Investing in a franchise was a great combination of low starting costs and existing infrastructure for a path to success.

WHY FIBRENEW: I like to work with my hands, and this is the option that kept bubbling up to the top.

THE BEST PART: I’ve met some really interesting people. I also like the flexibility of setting my own schedule and taking time off when needed or for travel.

WHY FIBRENEW: The company gives us so many venues to create revenue depending on what fits us best.
