Zanele Shazi, Sherpa Kids Franchisee Success Story
- Franchise: Sherpa Kids
- Franchisee: Zanele Shazi
- Area: KwaZulu-Natal Highway
Zanle Shazi, new franchisee of Sherpa kids believes that owning a Sherpa Kids franchise and taking care of children, their future and giving them an enriching experience goes by her philosophy of taking good care of all that is entrusted in her.
Zanele has a background in accounting and auditing and is therefore well-educated in taking care of the business side of her franchise
Sherpa Kids was attractive to her as she felt it was an opportunity to make a difference and her great passion for education, health, sports and the well-being of women and children. “Whilst taking a business management programme at Unisa, franchising was one of the business types we covered as part of the course. From that moment I was captured and told myself that if I ever went into business, it had to be a franchised business.”
Training and Support
A profile of Genevieve Allen, the master franchisor of Sherpa Kids South Africa caught her attention and after meeting with the team was impressed with their warmth and professionalism. “The support they gave me in setting up the business made going into business a pleasure and the on-going policies and procedures they have in place for us to follow means we always adhere to best practices and top standards. This is so important because, as franchisees, we are accountable not only to our head office, but also to parents and school managements.”
