Fibrenew South Okanagan’s background and description from the owner, Kelsey Enns:
I purchased this franchise in 2017 as a way out of the forest industry in northern Canada. This business has been a great way of supporting my family and has allowed us to get to know many great people and businesses in the south Okanagan community. We have run this business as a husband and wife team with a brief period of having an employee. We found that we preferred the freedom of working by ourselves.
However, there has never been a shortage of work and the potential for the right person to grow this business is undeniable. We have always loved the Fibrenew brand and the very many awesome people that work in head office as well as the fellow franchisees and will most definitely miss the Fibrenew family.
Before starting my Fibrenew franchise, I worked as a machine operator and truck driver. It was a job that involved operating machinery and transporting goods.
Owning and operating my Fibrenew franchise has brought several positive aspects. One of the best things is the opportunity to meet a diverse range of people and hear their stories. I enjoy connecting with customers and learning about their experiences. Another advantage is the ability to create my own schedule, giving me flexibility and control over my work-life balance.
My family has been involved in supporting my business. My wife has helped with administrative tasks, providing assistance with paperwork, record-keeping, and other organizational responsibilities.
One unique aspect of my territory that could be of interest to a new owner is the presence of a mix of marine and RV opportunities. The region boasts numerous large lakes, marinas, camping spots, and RV dealerships. This combination presents a diverse range of potential customers, offering various avenues for business growth and specialization.
Once I find a buyer for my franchise, I plan to shift my focus back to my career as a paramedic. I will dedicate more time and energy to furthering my professional development and contributing to the field of emergency medical services. It will be an opportunity to return to my previous occupation and continue making a positive impact on people’s lives in a different capacity.
