Do I need any experience in the cleaning sector?
No experience in the cleaning sector is necessary. To make a successful franchisee, you will need management experience, determination, confidence, experience of managing people and the ability to communicate well. Our current franchisees have led varied careers in sectors including finance, manufacturing, advertising and the military. What we like to see is a track record of growing a business, because of the transferable skills that brings.
How quickly can I be up and running?
That depends on you! For a greenfield territory, from signing your Franchise Agreement, you can be set up within a few weeks.
Do I need to have my own premises?
If you are purchasing a new greenfield territory, you will need to find your own business premises to work from. However, if you are buying an existing territory, there is a high probability of you being able to purchase the premises or take over the existing lease.
Will I be buying an exclusive territory?
All of our territories are large with exclusive marketing rights, providing a substantial number of businesses to target with the potential of many years of sustained growth.
What are the initial and ongoing costs when purchasing a new greenfield territory?
For new territories, the initial start-up cost is £20,000 plus vat, which covers licence fee, territory, IT equipment and training, plus a comprehensive marketing launch package. In addition, a minimum of £35,000 working capital plus personal drawings is required.
