CREAM is coming to Southdale, Johannesburg! Our new branch at Southdale Mall is opening on Thursday and we’re looking forward to sending a flurry of shiny, freshly-cleaned cars back out into the neighbourhood. Get to know our Southdale franchisee, Tyrone Hogan.
Tyrone has been in business for many years and when he decided to scale down, started looking to try his hand at a speciality business instead of just retiring. He’d known a few people who had started car wash businesses and thought it would “make for an interesting final adventure” in his life.
Tyrone is looking forward to being busy and says that working with cars and customers greatly appeal to him.
“Nothing beats the gleam of a freshly cleaned car except the smile on a customer’s face,” Tyrone says.
His interest in owning a car wash was sparked a while back when a car hire company asked him to assist them to get a car wash plant. This got him thinking that perhaps he should set up one himself.
After several enquiries into car wash franchises didn’t bear fruit, Tyrone was contacted by Alan, from CREAM Head Office. “I was at ease and comfortable with Alan and the CREAM franchise proposal and believe we can be successful together,” he explains.
Tyrone believes that the recipe for success starts by always putting the customer first. “A professionally cleaned end-product and efficient systems, coupled with good, hands-on management should deliver the desired result,” he elaborates. “And I mustn’t forget that I need to get cars through the wash bays in numbers!” he jokes.
