How a Commercial Cleaning Franchise Business Works
It can certainly be argued that franchising is one of the best and most popular business models as it helps hard working, ambitious people to become business owners with relative ease compared with setting up a business completely independently. With the support and opportunity provided by acquiring a commercial cleaning franchise, more and more people are taking a look at their careers and considering the franchise business model as an extremely viable alternative.
What is a franchise?
A franchise is a joint enterprise between the franchisor and the franchisee. The franchisor is the owner of an existing brand and business model who grants the franchise license, allowing a franchisee to buy the opportunity to run a business in their franchisor’s name, providing services following the franchisor’s tried and tested methods and consistent with their quality standards.
Whilst a commercial cleaning franchise (or any franchise) allows you to set up your own business, it’s important to remember that this isn’t an independent business. For many people, this is the main draw of running a franchise. In most cases, a franchisor provides the franchisee with a detailed operation that sets out the business plan to be followed. This strategic plan includes many areas of developing the business, including marketing, accounting, employee recruitment and training – these methods have been proven by the franchisor, and in many cases, by other franchisees, so a franchise business is more likely to succeed and excel.
Acquiring a franchise
For an individual to acquire a franchise for their area, they are required to invest an initial lump sum upon signing a franchise agreement, followed by the remainder of the franchise acquirement cost when the business has achieved a certain turnover. At MCS, franchisees must pay an initial £3995 + VAT, before investing the remaining capital of £6000 + VAT when they have reached a turnover in excess of £50,000, or after 12 months, whichever comes first. MCS Franchisees are allowed flexibility to pay this over 6 months, or as a lump sum.
In addition to this investment, franchisees are also expected to pay additional management fees on a regular basis. To find out more, please visit our FAQs page or call our knowledgeable team on 0800 612 0437.
How much can a franchisee earn?
The truth is, how much a franchisee can earn really depends up how hard they want to work and how much they want to develop in their region. However, with the right level of commitment, turnover can soon start to rise.
In the commercial cleaning industry, such is the level of demand for cleaning services within all business sectors, contracts can stack up in no time, providing the opportunity for a cleaning franchise to flourish and expand very quickly when the hours of work are put in.
