A local businesswoman has taken her love of financial management and turned it into a business as she launches the first Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise of 2018.
Siham Wong, a resident of Wrexham, is now a franchise partner with Rosemary Bookkeeping, one of the UK’s leading bookkeeping franchises, which was acquired by national franchisor ServiceMaster in August 2017. Rosemary Bookkeeping provides the full range of bookkeeping services to small and medium sized businesses and Accountancy practices.
Siham is the first investor and franchise partner in Rosemary Bookkeeping since the takeover by ServiceMaster and is excited about her journey ahead: “My aim is to grow my business and build a reputation for a quality service. In time I want to be employing other people and bringing through young, local talent.
“I’ve always wanted to run my own business and the franchise option fit my circumstances perfectly and I’m delighted to be working alongside so many other fantastic Rosemary Bookkeeping businesses across the UK.”
Originally from Morocco, Siham moved to the UK in 2006 and gained her AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting before deciding that bookkeeping was for her and invested in her own business.
All new Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise partners undertake intensive training at the ServiceMaster Franchise Support Centre, learning the unique Rosemary SystemÒ, which delivers systemised efficient processing and is used by all Rosemary Bookkeeping businesses across the UK, and all aspects of business management.
Hannah Banfield, head of marketing for ServiceMaster and brand leader for Rosemary Bookkeeping added: “We are delighted to welcome Siham on board as our first Rosemary Bookkeeping Franchise Partner and we are excited about her franchise journey with us. There is a huge amount of interest in the Rosemary franchise opportunity at the moment and we’re looking forward to welcoming more Franchise Partners to the network in the near future.”
ServiceMaster has over 300 franchisees operating in close to 700 licensed areas under its brands, including Merry Maids, ServiceMaster Clean, Furniture Medic, TruGreen Professional LawnCare and now Rosemary Bookkeeping.
