Vanarama is one of the best franchises in the UK

About 18 months ago we got a call from a chap called Andy Alderson who told us all about his commercial vehicle leasing business. We’ve seen this type of business pop up in the franchise industry before but Andy’s story was different because he has previously been a franchisee himself with a rubbish franchisor who went bust! Following that he cracked on without the franchisor and 6 years later he ended up with Britain’s largest independent commercial vehicle broker! Having achieved that he now wanted to explore how he could create a franchise network to have representation in every region of the UK and to cut a long story short our own Andy Cheetham travelled to Tring in Hertfordshire to meet with Andy Alderson and his co directors to see what all the fuss was about.

You can do it!

We wanted to share the wisdom if this poem. all of franchising’s major players concur with this.

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it”;
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.
