Hamilton’s ‘Shining Stars’
Krishn and Sangeeta Adhar value the support they receive from Crest.
“What Crest has done for us is enormous,” Krishn says. “We are proud to be associated with Crest. It is a team environment and it has taught us a lot. We are our own bosses and we are really happy.”
The husband and wife team, who relocated to New Zealand from Fiji, have been Crest Franchisees for three years.
After attending a seminar in 2007 the pair were “always keen” to become franchisees.
“We were always keen but we had to wait until we had the finance behind us before we could invest,” Krishn says.
With help from Crest, Krishn and Sangeeta purchased a franchise.
“When we invested in the business we were back to $0. Crest has helped us get to where we are today. It has been a lot of hard work, sacrifice and perseverance,” Krishn says. “This has been made easier with all the support we have received from Crest. They provide training and all the support we need to help us run a successful business.”
Krishn and Sangeeta look after six clients in Hamilton and they specialise in builder’s cleans.
“You get the building ready for architects, council inspectors and owners/tenants. There is a lot of dusting and mopping involved as well as removing marks on walls,” Krishn says. “We also appreciate qualification certificates we receive – it is motivating. We feel like we are being recognised for the hard work that we do,” Sangeet says.
Regional Manager Nivitesh Kumar says work is in place for Krishn and Sangeet to become Induction Trainers next year.
“They are both doing very well. Krishn manages a builder’s cleans team. They are valued members of the Crest Waikato team. They work hard and they take pride in their work,” Nivi says.
