Leeza McCloskey, 2nd Take Castle Walk Store, Erasmuskloof, Pretoria

This is what Leeza McCloskey, our first Franchise Partner in Pretoria has to say:

Why did you decide to buy a 2nd Take Franchise?I was retrenched and decided that I would like to have my own business instead of going back into the corporate world and a franchise seemed like the best option for me. 2nd Take is perfect as I have been in fashion retail for over 30yrs.

Have you previously been involved in a Franchise business or a similar business to 2nd Take? If so, what? No

What was your biggest concern before buying the 2nd Take Franchise? How do you feel about this now? The biggest concern was the fear of the unknown – would it be a success, how would I get stock, would the location of the store work? Now, I am so please that I took on this venture, as it is something new. My customers love the idea. I have gathered a good base of suppliers who keep returning not only as a supplier but also as a customer. I have also built a good relationship with my customers and they keep coming back. I get great compliments from our customers and suppliers on the concept of 2nd Take.

What is the best thing about having bought our Franchise? That I can have my own business.

What are three other great points about 2nd Take? Great support from Head Office throughout the venture, a win-win situation for everyone involved in the business. 2nd Take has done lots of detailed research and has excellent know-how, which is a HUGE help for setting up the Franchise. If makes it so much easier to run a successful business.

Do you feel the training provided, prepared you well for the running of a 2nd Take store? Absolutely

How do you feel now, with your very own 2nd Take store up and running? I am so proud of it. I am also still a bit nervous, but get encouragement from Bettina, support from the head office and amazing support from my family. I love this business and I know it will be a great success.

What would you say to anyone considering buying a 2nd Take Franchise? Why would you recommend us to someone else? 2nd Take is a great opportunity. The support structure is there and all you need is to make the effort and believe in the business and yourself and it will work.

Is there anything you would like to add? Thanks for the opportunity. It is a fantastic idea and I will definitely open another one.
