Name: Jonathan Espinoza
Dental Fix Rx Franchisee Since: September 2016
Service Area: Northern New Jersey
Jonathan Espinoza worked as a biomedical engineer for 17 years before deciding to pursue business ownership. He spent five of those years working as a project manager for a private company he built from the ground up, and many other years within the biomedical engineering department of a New York City hospital. After tiring of the politics that went along with his previous experiences, Jonathan decided to pursue entrepreneurship. He wanted to do something for himself and be his own boss, so he looked into different franchise opportunities. After doing his due diligence, Jonathan decided to launch his own Dental Fix Rx business.
QUESTION & ANSWER
DFX: What were you doing professionally before joining Dental Fix Rx? What was your typical workday like?
Jonathan: Before Dental Fix Rx, I worked as a biomedical engineer and after that as a manager of biomedical technicians for a private company I helped build. Every day was different, but most days – especially toward the beginning of my career – were spent servicing medical equipment. I became proficient with most everything that was in hospitals, and I enjoyed the hands-on work. My managerial positions were more about managing my team, which grew to about nine technicians, and keeping everything running smoothly and efficiently.
DFX: What skills from your previous career came in handy as a Dental Fix Rx franchisee?
Jonathan: My experience working with and servicing medical equipment obviously came in handy as a Dental Fix Rx owner/operator, although I hadn’t worked extensively with dental equipment repairs. Dental Fix Rx has great training and support for repairs, especially with their initial three-week hands-on training for franchisees. I learned a lot from that experience, and I appreciate always having their support if I come across a repair that is particularly difficult or that I haven’t dealt with before.
DFX: What have you been able to enjoy more now that you’re a franchise owner with Dental Fix Rx?
Jonathan: I really enjoy the autonomy and flexible schedule I have being a business owner. I also really like the mobile aspect of Dental Fix. Not only does it allow for low overhead costs, but it also just makes the workday go by much faster. I didn’t want to be stuck in an office all day, and I enjoy that with Dental Fix Rx. I can travel around, and my environment is constantly changing. No two days are the same – that’s one of the things I enjoy most about owning a Dental Fix Rx franchise.
