Gerald Holden
I have been with Dorber as a franchisee for over 6 years now, and it was the best business decision I have ever made. I can work the hours and days that I want, there are no reports to write and the stock of cards that I need are always available to me within 24 hours.

Martin Roberts
As a retired Bank Manager I was delighted to find, when Dorber made their company accounts available to me for inspection, that their business is self financing. This gives me great confidence as a franchisee that my business is in safe hands with Dorber and continuity of my franchise is assured.

Hilary, one of the directors of Dorber, was a franchisee for 10 years. In addition to having a good income for 10 years, she sold her franchise for four times her original franchise fee.
