Fastway Testimonials
As a Fastway Courier Franchisee, my wife and I, are proud to be successful owner operators, running a family business in our hometown. We work and support each other, delivering to our community and supporting local businesses.
Adam & Izabela Filipczak - Courier Franchisees,
Hi my name is Emma, and I have been a Courier Franchisee for the a year now. Before I joined Fastway Couriers, I was a Medical Secretary for a good number of years. There are lots of benefits of being a Courier Franchisee, one of them is the low start up costs and the support that you get from the leadership team. In terms of technology, we use an app on our scanners, so we rely heavily on that for all the information and contact details, obviously for addresses but also if a customer is not at home, you may need to call them so you need all that information
Emma - Courier Franchisee,
Hi I’m Jonathan, I’m a courier franchisee with Fastway Couriers for the last nine years in Galway city, previous to this I was working in Fire and Security in Galway airport. I chose to join Fastway, having been made redundant during the recession in the airport. The main benefit of being your own boss, and as your territory grows, you get to pick your own team. I’m very lucky I have a great team behind me in Galway. And also good to have the support of the main office behind us and we know that we have leadership there. I feel if you provide a good service, word of mouth, is probably the best advertising you can have and I brought on a lot of local businesses, who in turn have spoken to other business owners and were lucky were constantly growing our business in Galway city
Jonathan - Franchisee in Galway,
