The ideal Town & Country Cleaning franchisee
The ideal franchisee candidate profile we’re looking for is someone equally capable both on sales and operations, and personally comfortable working in a start-up franchise operation.
This entails having less restrictions than more established companies, but also more opportunity to grow your business. We want people who can see the value of our brand to challenge the existing status quo, to win larger accounts and to deliver a more profitable cleaning business.
Our franchisee opportunity includes a 5yr licence sole rights and automatic right to renew, to a larger operating area than most cleaning management franchisees. We don’t want lots of franchisees all competing with each other. We want fewer franchisees to operate as partners, and to be empowered to grow their business across larger areas and to include the opportunity to develop regional and national accounts.
Our candidate profile can be summarised into the following:
- Strong in sales and managing people and operations
- Small business owner wanting to expand
- Manager wanting their own business
- Self-motivated and responsible
- Values consistent with brand
- Ideally, with partner support
- Adopt business framework
- Fund initial setup / cash flow
- Drive their business forward – selling / delivering positive outcomes
And if you haven’t considered cleaning, then read this...
Cleaning services is based on an extremely robust business model. Start-up costs are low when compared to other business types…there is no retail premises to rent, no stock to purchase and no large capital expenditure to lay out.
The majority of your costs are variable costs, i.e. you get most of the costs only when you get the business and when you get the profits. Your revenue is usually spread across multiple customers reducing risk, and importantly, based on recurring revenue, i.e. every month you receive ongoing payments, month in month out. Also, while technology can impact on the market, it cannot deliver the actual service.
The benefits of a cleaning business:
- Recurring revenue stream
- Low risk (setup / ongoing)
- Variable cost (no sales no costs)
- Endless opportunity
- Commercial – necessity and recession proof
- Residential – affluent customers
- Near cash – average payment c35 days
- Spread risk with multiple customers
- People always need jobs
- Internet cannot deliver service
