60-Unit Franchisee Bill Noble Shares His Personal and Business Journey with Multi-Unit Franchisee Magazine
As a multi-unit franchisee of 60 Pearle Vision franchise locations, Bill Noble has plenty to share about his rewarding entrepreneurial journey. In fact, Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine recently profiled Noble, and he shared details about his impressive business accomplishments, personal goals and much more.
In franchising, one of the most important qualities a franchisee must have is passion. In the article, Noble discussed his passions in business. “I enjoy all the different aspects of retail, like leadership, sales and interpersonal skills, and in the optical industry, we have the opportunity to make an impact in someone’s life through their ability to see,” says Noble. “How do you put a value on being able to see clearly? We are truly changing people’s lives.”*
Noble describes how entrepreneurs can benefit from the advice of mentors and other influential figures. His experience at Pearle Vision is no different. One of the benefits of franchising is the tested and proven support systems that franchisees can rely on.
In the article, Noble identifies the two most important things he can count on from Pearle Vision: “Pearle Vision’s brand name is widely recognizable, and the franchisor invests in the brand to increase brand awareness, which helps us in our local markets,” says Noble. “And, the second would be that Pearle Vision offers us the opportunity to build a strong business that offers franchisees a business model where growth is rewarded.”
As a franchisee, it’s good to always be thinking about the future. When asked where he sees himself in five to 10 years, Noble says: “We started 2014 with 10 locations and will be ending 2018 with 60-plus locations open, so in the near future we are focused on looking at our business as a whole and evaluating and fine-tuning our processes and systems. Looking ahead, we want to continue opening new locations in our existing key DMAs of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado and Northern Florida.”
