Meet our Franchisee of the Week: Francois Hansen!
When we asked him why he chose to get involved with the Montagu franchise, he said: “I have a passion for healthy living and feel that Montagu as a business highlights this by providing people with healthy alternatives at affordable prices. That, together with their unyielding focus on quality, makes Montagu the franchise of choice for me.”
He says that the Montagu franchise model provides a good investment opportunity, “and I grabbed it with both arms when it came my way!”
Francois says there is tremendous pressure from the common man to keep selling prices as cheaply as possible. “Personally I feel that Montagu products offer excellent value for money, without taking away from any important nutrients,” he explains.
Francois is a born and bred Capetonian and says he would really struggle if he ever have to trade that. “I currently work in sales and exports while I run my Montagu store with the help of my loyal staff,” he says proudly. On weekends he keeps himself busy with mountain biking and jogging.
Francois is a great lover of the outdoor life and likes to stay active. He’s a big fan of Montagu’s small portions of nuts and the dried fruit bars. “I always keep nuts and dried fruit in my car – it helps with those unexpected ‘cravings’ that tend to interfere with your diet!” he laughs.
