A MAN has finally fulfilled a lifelong dream after starting his own business in Ellesmere Port.
Marc McQuilliam, 45, from Chester, has just launched Apollo Blinds to offer the widest range of window blinds, awnings and plantation shutters to customers in the town.
From his mobile showroom, Marc is on a one-man crusade to make every home beautiful.
“I believe there is a fantastic opportunity to build a business based on helping homeowners make the most of each window in their home”, he said.
“I’ve always wanted to run my own business and even in the current economic climate there is an opportunity to do well because homeowners are crying out for someone to offer them inspiring ideas and stunning products which will make them go ‘wow’.
“People often overlook the fact that window blinds are instrumental in dictating the atmosphere of a room because they govern the amount of light and shade, so I want to show homeowners just what an impact Apollo Blinds will have on their homes.”
Marc spent a decade as a national sales manager in the garden furniture industry before joining Apollo Blinds, which has a franchise network of 75 stores across the UK.
He said: “I know the home interiors sector inside out and when I finally took the plunge and worked for myself I opted to start my own Apollo Blinds franchise because their collections were unparalleled in the industry and nobody in the area would have the ranges I had.
“Apollo Blinds has a reputation for high quality blinds at very affordable prices and I will draw on the strength of the network to offer a superb service, from advice on the best blind for each window through to the fitting of each made-to-measure blind.”
