Allan Hirsch Inspires Budding Entrepreneurs
Hirsch’s Homestore in Ballito recently held their monthly networking meet up, with local business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs getting together to mingle with like-minded individuals and expand their business network. CEO and founder of Hirsch’s Homestore Allan Hirsch was the speaker for the morning sharing his tips and experience starting the largest independently owned appliance retailer and keeping it in the number one spot in the industry.
Allan pointed out that the philosophy on which the Hirsch culture was established is sticking to the basics. “One thing you’ve got to do when starting your own business is to stick to the basics continuously. Every successful person does the basics right over and over and over again. At Hirsch’s we stick to the basics and we always stick to our mission statement of having happy customers who return often because a superior service is provided which is a deal breaker.”
Allan Hirsch entered the appliance industry 40 years ago as an appliance technician. He qualified as a refrigeration technician with Fuchsware, who were leaders in the appliance industry at the time. With roots in Umhlanga Rocks Drive, Durban North, Hirsch’s success is largely due to the excellent service they provided. 40 years on and 19 retail stores later, the emphasis is still on providing excellent service. With service centers in KZN, Gauteng and the Western Cape, Hirsch’s Service and Repairs are leaders in the appliance repair industry. This is complimented by service departments in each store to further assist clients who would like to book in carry in items. Comments Allan “With a large compliment of qualified and experienced technicians, we are able to independently take care of our customer’s needs. Our staff, some of whom have been in the appliance industry for over 30 years, are passionate about customer service.”
