At FASA’s Franchise Expo earlier this year Midek Paint Contractors and Absa joined forces to offer a lucky person/s the chance of becoming a franchisee.
Absa guaranteed finance to a selected and approved winner, which included the purchase of a bakkie and fully equipped trailer. Midek Paint Contracts forfeited the franchise joining fee, supplied uniforms, provided training, free marketing material, free royalties for three months.
According to Claus Kuhl, MD of Midek Paint Contracts, the twenty finalists chosen from the hundreds that entered all showed promise but in the final analysis the panel of judges chose a team of ladies who showed outstanding passion and determination. “These three dynamic women presented an inspiring business plan at the Absa training course that led to their winning and will now undergo training and an intern programme for three months.”
Calling themselves The Pink Ladies, the Centurion Midek Paint Contractors team, consisting of Nokwanda Shabangu, Boipelo Nniki and Katlego Mogotsi are thrilled with their new franchise business and plan to paint the town pink!
