Hearing from the first-hand

experience of our franchisee

Daniel Sta Ana

As an immigrant, when I got redundant at my full time work seven years ago, I decided not to go back to my old job. I was looking for a franchise that is rewarding me for my hard work. I found Testel is the right franchise business for me as it is very satisfying, and Testel staff are very helpful and supportive. It also provided me more quality time with my family. Looking forward for many years with Testel.

Andrew Titley

I have been a Testel franchise owner for over 10 years now. The system Testel utilizes is a state-of-the-art, world-class software program that I use to make my job super simple. I get great feedback from my clients too, as each site is managed in detail, and it provides all the data my clients need to be compliant in their businesses. It also allows me as the technician to complete works knowing the systems in place, will keep my invoices issued and paid. Customers are issued their Certificates of Compliance and all data is readily accessible.

Richard Lang

I moved from consumer electronic repairs to test and tag business and opening a Testel franchise was the best decision I've made. From the first day I called them until I got my licence, I never felt like I was alone in the process. If I had a question, I could just pick up the phone. It felt like they had our best interests at heart; a vested interest. And that meant a lot to me. Now I am my own boss and I can work at my own pace. It is great.

Ankit Panchal

This is a great opportunity for people like me that love building relationships. The value that I bring to my customers from different backgrounds is far beyond anything else that’s offered in the industry. I wanted my work to have more purpose, and I wanted to use my communication skills in a more meaningful way. And now it’s the true feeling my clients appreciate what I did for them, and that’s better than money.

Hao Do

As the first franchise partner with Testel, I knew I would be taking a big risk with a newly created franchise, but I am glad I did. Going from an employee to being a business owner has enabled me to take full control of my work/life balance. Now I have time to travel, to do country hiking, and I can have time off when I want it.

Dean Cooper

Testel wants us to be successful, because if we’re successful, the entire brand is successful. The admin support that the company provides is phenomenal. If I have to make a call, or if I have a question about anything, I’m going to get a call back. The whole corporate team works actively to ensure that I have everything I need to thrive in business. Now I have a big turnover, and if you are prepared to work hard, there is no reason that anyone could also enjoy a great income.

Bob Walden

The truth is I wouldn’t have survived 20 years in business if I didn’t have a Testel Franchise. I could now but don’t see the point as it’s working for both of us. From the beginning I understood the relationship between the businesses of a Franchisee and Franchisor. It’s one of inter-dependence where more can be achieved working together. My time at Testel hasn’t always been easy but I have enjoyed it, found it challenging and rewarding. That’s why I’m still here…
