When asked why he chose the Taxi Truck franchise, Mr Pratsas commented: ” Current statistics show 90% of start up businesses fail within the first 3 years, whereas 90% of franchises are successful. What’s great about the Taxi Truck  franchise is that it has an established business plan that works and this provides some comfort. Having worked in the business i can see what a successful model it is and i will continue to grow the brand in the North West. Our ethos at Taxi Truck is to provide a good standard of service and to grow our business so that we are recognised for our quality of service throughout the UK.
