I was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada with my family in 1996 as a computer programming specialist. It was very easy to get my first job with a software company but after six years, when the project was completed, I was laid off. At age 46, it was very difficult for me to start looking for a new job and that was the moment where I realized there is no job security in Canada. I was introduced to part time cleaning at night and after working for two year my colleague asked me to buy his franchise business in cleaning with Priority Building Services. At first I thought it would be tough to have your own business; however Priority was very helpful in helping me to start off in the right direction. They provided me with the right amount of materials and training and I was able to be efficient and effective in a very short period of time.
Due to my hard work and attention to detail I was able to grow my company. Since starting off as a one-man company 8 years ago, I currently have 25 employees in my payroll with over 15 contracts with Priority the contracts are varied including commercial, condominiums and schools. Priority saw the potential in me and provided the entire tuition fee for taking the Resident Manager’s Training Institute example. This allowed me to become a Certified Building Manager in 2013. Not only did this help me gain confidence in my work, it also gives me more credibility and trustworthiness to gain more contracts in the future
I am very thankful for the help and guidance that I received as it truly helped me become the person I am today. A person with a successful business that goes home everyday with less stress, no worry for job security, job satisfaction in providing the best services from his staff and last but not least a much higher salary that I ever imaged.
I have been a franchisee of Priority Building Services Ltd for over 5 years now. They have been an emblem of support for our business by providing professional and reliable services without hesitation. This is definitely due to a very proficient staff and management group. Just like any other business whenever I have faced any dispirited situations Brian and his team have given their full support to steer us towards our goal.
I am very fortunate to be associated with such amiable people and dependable service. I have been able to grow my business whenever I was ready and am looking to expand our business further into the future with PBS
