John Flanagan - Co-founder of J.P Flanagan and sons.
Believe it or not I started my business by delivering mail drops on a bike. If I was lucky and my Father-in-law wasn't using his car I would sometimes borrow that. Thankfully putting my bike riding days behind me I progressed on to buy a second hand van which I had re-sprayed in order to have it sign written with the company name.
I'm glad to say that things have changed a little since then. We now have a fleet of new vans. I am so proud that both of my sons decided to join the family business, working with Lee and Carl and having the continued support of my wife Vicki is reassuring. It's good to know that I have a reliable back up team.
A family business definitely has its rewards. I know I have someone I can rely on and trust 100%. It can also have its moments, but these are few and far between. I can always rely on Vicki and the boys to put me back in line if I step out!!
