If you are considering setting up a domestic cleaning franchise with Domestique Franchise, let us guide you through the initial points to take into account before signing on the dotted line. Take a look at what we can offer you, what we would expect in return, and the first steps you would need to take to get your franchise up and running.
What a Domestique Franchise can offer you
The team here at Domestique are all fully aware that setting up a franchise can seem extremely daunting. This is why we will provide full training before and during the set-up of your franchise, you can have access to our online forum which is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, plus you can utilise our unique business support which will continue during your career as a franchisee. We can take care of your online marketing package by building a webpage for you and managing your Google advertisements to help you to build up your client base. All appointments will be booked centrally and there will be no need for you to worry about negotiating employee contracts.
What you will need to provide
Of course, a franchise is a two-way deal, and so you will also need to contribute to the success of the business. Being prepared to work extremely hard, commit to the business and most of all be enthusiastic, flexible and positive is a must. Whilst you will be able to undergo training, it’s definitely advantageous to have some computer knowledge to enable you to learn how to use our bespoke software system. You must also have a clean driving licence and the ability to communicate effectively with clients.
You will be required to raise the necessary funding for your franchise. In order to do this, you will need to have a comprehensive business plan which you can present to potential lenders. It may be advisable to speak to a reputable independent financial advisor in order to identify the right financing options for your needs.
Once the essentials such as funding are all in place, it’s time to start the necessary training. You’ll need to learn about key aspects such as paying staff, health and safety, how to quote clients for work and potential marketing strategies. Whilst much of the training will be carried out prior to you launching your franchise, support from Head Office will be ongoing, allowing you to learn and grow with your business.
Open for business
The launch date of your franchise will soon come around, and you’ll be able to turn your dreams into reality. With a lot of hard work and determination, plus some valuable help and support from the Domestique team, your domestic cleaning franchise will no doubt soon become a success.
