Brendan O'Callaghan is off to a flying start with 20% increase!

Brendan O'Callaghan saw what was coming...the slowdown in the construction sector. Having worked as a painter/decorator for many years, Brendan, your local Fastway Courier Franchisee for the Cootehill, Bailieborough and Virginia areas, felt the need for more security and control over his income.

‘I could see that things were changing and if I wanted to have a secure income, I needed to look elsewhere." Brendan has always liked being his own boss so he starting looking into buying a franchise. He had been looking at Fastway Couriers for a few months and in November 2008, decided to make the investment in his future. "I liked the stability that Fastway Couriers provides. I've always worked odd hours with little idea of where my next job would come from. With Fastway Couriers, I have the support of a Regional Franchisee who helps me to build my business."

Since his first day as a Fastway Courier Franchisee just over three months ago, Brendan has increased the number of customers he regularly picks-up parcels from, by over 20% and is looking forward to offering his service to other businesses in the area. "The system of pre-paid labels and satchels really helps people keep control of their delivery costs, which have never been more important. Parcels can be sent throughout the 32 counties for as little as €3.30*. As I always say, high service levels for a very competitive price!"

Brendan knows that he can offer local businesses a service second to none. His experience of working with his own customers means he knows how important it is to provide a personal service and to get to know the needs of his customers.
