Insight from Olaf Grewe, Franchise Owner in Germany

I have an international background having worked for more than 30 years in the global FMCG industry across different areas and countries. When I decided to start my own business, my desire was to join a successful company with a good business model and established tools & processes.

After 32 years of being employed, I felt that in the “last chapter” of my career, I really wanted 2 Olaf Grewe 037to help people grow and I did not want to be limited by the bureaucratic processes of large public companies anymore. I chose Antal because it is a well-established international company with over 20 years of experience and unique mentoring, training and support. The training is extremely professional and a very good mix between In-house training, mentoring as well as 3rd party training.

The challenges I have faced were mainly to adapt to the change from being an expert to move into a new territory, get more self-discipline but helping people to grow and develop their career and play an active part in this is an amazing reward!

In my opinion, franchising is the best, safest and fastest way into being self-employed, as you can build your business on established processes and tools, which makes it easier to settle.
