Fast-Fix to continue expansion

Jewellery and watch repair franchise Fast-Fix has announced its plans to expand throughout Ireland. Stores are set to open in Swords, Co Dublin, Galway and Limerick over the next few months.

Managing Director of Fast Fix Shane Cooney comments: 'Fast-Fix offers an excellent package to potential franchisees. With a strong will to succeed, a franchisee can look forward to comprehensive training, low inventory costs, high margins, funding support, detailed price book, marketing plan and a full turnkey store operation. The good news is that no jewellery experience is necessary.

'Fast-Fix offers something different to budding entrepreneurs outside the food and coffee franchises and our proven concept will appeal to those looking for a lifestyle change.'

Established in 1984, Fast-Fix began franchising its successful concept in 1987. To date the jewellery and watch repair stores can be found in over 170 locations in the USA and Canada. In November 2007, Fast-Fix launched its first European store in Stephen's Green in Tallaght, Ireland. The company offers clients a one-hour watch and jewellery repair service. Repairs are made by the in-store master Goldsmiths or watch technicians.
