Success is not easy when you are a Ledgers Franchise Owner, but if you are motivated, work hard and follow our marketing programs, success can be yours. This is a story of one of our leading franchise owners.

Dilip Chetram is the owner of a Ledgers Franchise in Scarborough, ON, a suburb of Toronto. His academic achievements include a B.A. from the University of Toronto, and an MBA in Business Administration from the Brooklyn Campus of the Long Island University (New York). He has no formal accounting education outside of the basics he learned in his studies and does not have an accounting designation. Neither is a problem when you are a Ledgers Network Member as our support and infrastructure will provide you with the assistance you need.

Dilip joined the Ledgers Group in March of 2005, and since then has grown to be one of Ledgers Canada’s top 5 franchises in terms of sales. In the beginning, like every other new Ledgers Franchise at the time, Dilip took a while to gain momentum and to understand the Ledgers model. Once he came to these realizations however, he was off to the races; virtually adding clients each and every week. His clients range from Dance Studios and Automotive Repair facilities to Tutoring Schools and Restaurants; there is no type of business that Dilip and his staff can’t handle.

Dilip’s business continued to grow, and his feedback was instrumental in the development of Ledgers Canada, our training programs, marketing materials, concepts and operations. Dilip even became a classroom trainer for our new franchisees; why not learn from someone who has ‘been there, done that’? The feedback from new franchise owners going through the classroom training was extremely positive, many saying “learning from Dilip’s experiences has been very helpful in growing my business”. Dilip is now too busy to assist us with our training programs, however, what we learned from him we still use today.

Dilip’s efforts have not gone unnoticed; he has won several franchise achievement awards, including Outstanding Sales Achievements and Franchise of the Year in 2006, and special recognition with a Children’s Wish Foundation Achievement Award for preparing in excess of 200 personal tax returns in a single year. Dilip has also garnered the respect of the Management Team at Ledgers Canada, and he is our ‘go-to’ guy when we encounter a unique client; we know Dilip has the skills and experience to handle just about any situation.

Today, Dilip continues to grow his business, consistently adding new clients and increasing his personal tax preparation business each year. For 2011, Dilip is in a race for 1st place overall, a competition he shares with 2 other franchise locations in Canada, Williams Lake, BC and Orangeville, ON; they 3 locations have been in a tight race all year and it is going to come down to the wire with December sales determining the winner.

Will you be Ledgers next success story?
