Business Description

Home Based | Mobile | Restoration Resale

“In the past I worked as a pro bicycle shop technician. I came to Fibrenew after several years of being a full time caregiver for my kids. I wanted a job that gave me the flexibility to make my own hours, pick the kids up from school and enjoy family. I looked at several franchises before purchasing my franchise. I chose it because I liked the idea of not having a “boss” as well as the fact that the job involved developing a craft skill and working with my hands. ” Fibrenew Pasadena

A decade and a half ago this franchisee purchased a territory 15 miles wide and did not know what that meant. All these years later a long standing franchisee and the growth within the area has turned his territory into six (6) separate territories, with a great reputation and repeat clients.

The satisfaction in the work itself – giving an old beloved piece furniture a new life is what Bruce loved the most. He also loved how much it made him part of the community. He likes building relationships with other small businesses and warranty company reps who provide a good stream of referrals as well as seeing the diversity in how people live. He also appreciated the extensive support systems from Fibrenew HQ along with the community of fellow franchise owners that are only a click away via the internal website. Even though you are an independently owned and operated franchise, you still have a team of colleagues where you can get advice and support for the more challenging repairs.
