Stephen Farrelly

BELFOR Franchise Group has opened a new office in the UK as part of the roll-out of their portfolio of franchise brands into the UK & EU. The first of the brands to be launched in the UK is HOODZ, a commercial kitchen extractor and equipment cleaning franchise.

HOODZ has been established for over 40 years, and the franchise continues to expand its reach with Steve Farrelly being recognised as the first UK franchisee.  HOODZ is delighted to welcome Steve Farrelly to the network and Steve shared why he chose HOODZ, “I always wanted to be a business owner. BELFOR has helped me develop into the leader I am today with all my training and experience. I am now excited to have the opportunity to grow my own company, whilst staying part of the BELFOR family remaining under the BELFOR umbrella via one of their franchise brands.

Joe Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development for the BELFOR Franchise Group shared “Steve is the perfect franchisee, he has vision, goals, innovative ideas, energy and a well-stated business plan that we are sure he will execute fully. We look forward to our growth and expansion in the UK and EU with the range of brands we are bringing from the US. We would also like to express our appreciation to Alasdair Phillips – Managing Director, BELFOR UK Ltd, and everyone at BELFOR UK who have assisted us in making this journey a reality.
