Last week, we unveiled our model for Spiffy Franchising and the response has been outstanding! As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s reassuring to hear from other resilient entrepreneurs across the country ready to join our team.
In light of the announcement, our CEO, Scot Wingo, spoke with Chantal Allam from WRAL TechWire about our rebound in the face of the pandemic and economic downtown.
“Just a few months ago, Spiffy was hurting badly. After years of scaling quickly — expanding into 20 metropolitan markets and closing on $10 million in new venture capital last year — it saw its revenue plummet by 90 percent in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. That sudden drop forced the company to furlough around 200 employees in April.
“However, things are looking up now.
“‘Just in the last two weeks we got to two thirds of the pre-COVID levels,’ Wingo told WRAL TechWire. ‘So [we’re] off 30 percent, which is still not where we want to be, but a heck of a lot better than the bottom where we were.’”
Even while business was down, we never lost sight of our goal to redefine the car care experience everywhere. “Everywhere” has always included reaching US cities of 500,000 - 1 million people with the support of a solid franchise network. We are so excited that the time is right to start making this happen.
If you haven’t learned about our Franchise model, then Scot’s here with a great introductory video to explain its foundation:
By joining Spiffy as a franchisee, you gain access to an established team years of experience in the car care industry. Everything you need, from technology and equipment to accounting and marketing, is covered - leaving you to focus on what you do best.
