A winning formula with Dischem franchise

David Puttergill
East London

Why I chose franchising
It combines the ability to participate in a winning formula and still derive the satisfaction of building a successful business.

What I did before taking up a franchise
I was a banker, then ran my own business in independent pharmacy.

How I raised the finance

The training and support I receive from my franchisor
Training and support is ongoing, with continuous input from directors and senior management.

The challenges I have faced
Geographic remoteness and the associated problems of logistics, creating brand awareness, and recruiting and training of staff.

My advice to someone thinking of buying their first franchise
Focus on the long term goal and don’t expect instant gratification.

My plans for the future
Grow Dis-Chem in the Eastern Cape to further entrench Dis-Chem as the number one pharmacy brand in the country.
