“I really wanted to get off the tools one day and I realised Mr Charger was my chance.”
Many electricians feel frustrated with long hours, working the same old jobs, but making a change or starting your own business is not easy. For Nick Creer, taking on the Mr Charger franchise for Preston was exactly the opportunity he was looking for.
Whilst you do not need to be an electrician to benefit from a Mr Charger franchise, many of our partners have come from an electrical background. Like, Mr Charger Preston owner, Nick Creer. He initially joined his father in the family electrical contracting business, working in partnership with him for over 10 years. However, Nick could see there was the potential to achieve more in the business, and they could grow in a new direction.
Nick quickly saw there was potential within the EV market, with the growing popularity for electric cars, and he began working on small electric car charger projects. As he did, he met Richard from Mr Charger, who explained there was a market he could tap into, with his own Mr Charger franchise. “I instantly realised this was a good opportunity, so just went for it!” says Nick. ”I’ve always known I’ll take over my dad’s business fully, one day, but I also wanted something new, which was my own, to sink my teeth into. Starting a new business is always a risk, but Mr Charger has hit the ground running, right at the start of the EV boom: it’s an ideal investment.”
