Franchisee Testimonials

“I realized franchising with Fibrenew allowed a lot of flexibility that could work with my fireman schedule until I got out of the fire department. I like the ability to set my own schedule, make as much as I want, and be my own boss.”

Mark Chasteen

Ian Waldron

“After working as a Factory Manager for over 25 years, Fibrenew has given me an opportunity to take what was once my hobbies and turn them into an income. There is nothing better than being your own boss, sure it takes discipline, however the rewards of owning your own small business cannot be understated. Having the ability to talk to people face to face is a real pleasure. Being one of many Fibrenew Franchisees world wide is a great feeling.”
