New Franchise Owner Smashes Targets and Sets Sights on Second Territory

Jo VowlesJo Vowles has quickly established herself as the leading nanny agency within Buckinghamshire and has now set her sights on the county of Hertfordshire. 

Having purchased the Buckinghamshire franchise in July 2021, she was smashing targets from the get-go. By her second quarters trading, she had already turned over more than £25,000.00 and had returned her initial investment in just 3 months.

Following some extensive research, Jo decided to purchase the Buckinghamshire franchise, and when asked why she opted for a Harmony at Home Franchise Jo described the brand as “a good one” – established and with a high-quality polished feel. With prior experience as a nanny herself and bringing high level Office Management skills to the table, she was ready to take on the new challenge of recruitment. 

Since setting up the Buckinghamshire franchise, she has placed over 14 nannies and other household staff and is consistently making families across the county very happy. She continues to thrive and has regular glowing reviews posted about her. 

As a family we really felt that Jo understood exactly what we needed in a nanny and appreciated the thorough vetting process that is undertaken which sets Harmony at Home apart from many other agencies. Recommended!” Rebecca Tonkin

Jo described the onboarding process as seamless, “Frankie has an excellent way of explaining things“. And whilst the training materials continue to be a useful source of information Jo knows that the Harmony at Home team, including other franchisees are always on hand to lend an ear. “I really enjoy being part of the Harmony at Home network – having the others at the end of the phone if needed. I enjoy the video calls – we can give each other advice and just get to know each other better. They are a great team.”

Would Jo recommend joining Harmony at Home as a franchisee? “I would definitely say to go for it! It is an enjoyable, flexible and well-paid role – what’s not to like?

Jo is now also the proud owner of Harmony at Home Hertfordshire and is already placing nannies and household staff across the county. Within just 9 months, Jo had become the go-to agency within Buckinghamshire and knew it was time to expand and make the most of growing her business.
