The British Franchise Exhibition 21 / 22 June 2013 at Manchester Central.

bfeSuccessful businessman Rob Neill from Chester will be giving aspiring business owners valuable insight into the creation and development of thriving enterprises at a series of popular Growing Your Own Business seminars taking place at The British Franchise Exhibition on 21 and 22 June at Manchester Central.

Rob Neill, managing director of luxury menswear brand Lucky West, will be one of the keynote speakers along with Mike Owen who is the managing director of three successful companies.  They will be sharing the secrets of their success and advice on how to build a sound business in today’s challenging economic climate. 

Rob’s inspiration for starting his fashion business was the result of a road trip in the US where he visited a myriad of iconic landmarks and fell in love with the local people and their way of life.

Rob explains:

“During my US road trip I admired the clothes sported by the locals along with the lifestyles they lead, which is where my original concept to bring something similar to this side of the pond was first established.”

“After years of struggling to find a high quality brand which hasn’t been mass produced to be worn by every other male in the same age bracket, I saw a real niche in the market.”

The Cheshire-based business has since developed a full range of T-shirts and Rob is looking to expand the collection by introducing a selection of sweatshirts, hoodies and polo T-shirts in the signature Lucky West style.

Marketing and selling  online – “it’s the future of shopping”  Rob has gained extensive sales from all over the world , from Norway to Australia and Mauritiius , but, most interesting, many from the US, including the West Coast – where the idea came from!

Rob is also about to link up with a boy band and a Northern celebrity sportsman as brand ambassadors – no names at present  but very soon….
