Meet the management team

Amrit Dhaliwal, Managing Director​​

Amrit Dhaliwal, Chief Executive Officer

Amrit is the Managing Director of Walfinch franchise. After graduating from Keele University with a degree in History & Economics, he realised very quickly he needed to be in business for himself. In quick succession he transformed an Italian deli in Richmond in Surrey into an award winning Italian restaurant. Then a street away developed a successful tea shop, again recognised with a prestigious local business award. He was able to sell both and invest the profits into several property development sites in London.

At the same time, he developed a well-known domiciliary care franchise in Oxford from a standing start to £1 million turnover over 6 years, developing a valued core team of 70 and winning Franchisee of the Year award. This practical experience has given Amrit clear insight on how to help each franchisee develop their business effectively and reach their goals. Walfinch’s mission is to work with each franchisee using Walfinch’s system to develop a client focused and profitable business.​
