Amol Prakash receives a Certificate of Long Service from Tony and Nicky Kramers.

After seven years with CrestClean, Amol Prakash can be hugely proud of his achievements in building up a successful business.

From a modest investment, Amol has worked hard to achieve a fivefold increase in the size of his franchise. He’s highly respected for his work ethic and loyalty to his Dunedin customers.

Tony Kramers, CrestClean’s Dunedin Regional Manager, says it’s an outstanding achievement. “Amol is a fantastic business operator and is well respected among his customers and franchise team. It’s been an absolute pleasure watching Amol grow his franchise.”

Although running his own CrestClean business has at times been demanding, Amol still gets to spend plenty of time with his wife Leslie and their young children.

And it was having family time, he says, that was the driving force behind the couple’s decision to join CrestClean after moving to New Zealand.

Before they emigrated, Amol worked long hours in corporate management in Dubai. He specialised in currency trading and looked after the investment interests of Arab clients.

Thanks to the success of their CrestClean business, Amol and Leslie have purchased a home of their own plus two investment properties. “If you are prepared to work hard you will do really well by owning a CrestClean franchise,” he says.

“Joining CrestClean was really straightforward and the job itself is really flexible in terms of when you work.”

Amol has also diversified into other areas to offer customers more services. He now operates CrestClean’s largest Pure Water Window franchise in Dunedin and he’s also an Induction Trainer for the company.
