Franchisee Stories: Hon’s Franchise Success Story

Hon started his delivery and fulfilment business with diamond just over 2 years ago – and already its revenues are in excess of £1m. Want to know how? Here’s Hon’s story.

“My name is Hon and I am the owner of diamond logistics in Bournemouth. I opened my depot on 1st January 2015 and have grown rapidly since then.”

Hon-Leung-300x212.jpg“I have been in the courier industry since 2006 and have worked, as a master subcontractor, for Yodel, UK Mail, Interlink and Citylink. At one point, I was running 35 vans and providing in excess of 45 drivers each day to these companies. However, I was getting frustrated with the stress of controlling these drivers without the financial rewards – essentially I was providing the most essential part of a courier company but somebody else was taking the lion’s share of the profits!”

“That’s what led me to look at the opportunity that diamond logistics presented. I started in 2014, and I’m glad I made the switch. The whole infrastructure provided is first class – IT, finance, marketing and training are all provided as part of the franchise, all I needed to do as a franchisee was to bring in the customers and keep them happy! It is only with the solid backing that diamond HQ provide that I have been able to grow my business as quickly as I have, as I don’t have to worry about the nitty-gritty of invoicing etc. With this in mind, I have ambitions to grow my business aggressively this year and achieve a multi million pound turnover in 2016!”

“I am now loving the fact that, working with diamond, the harder I work the more I get rewarded. I am free to set my own margins and there is no upper limit on how much I can grow the business, I am only limited by my own ambitions and the work that I am willing to put in. The diamond team are supportive and ambitious, and provide all the necessary tools for us to achieve our goals.”

“I’ve now expanded into new premises – less than 3 years into my journey, to build his business even further. A new 7,500 sq ft fulfilment centre in the heart of Dorset to help local businesses grow. And affording my family and I the lifestyle we deserve! If you have any questions about being a franchisee, you can reach me at”
