  • What is the business sector that I will be operating in?
    It is important to understand the sector that the business operates in so that you can establish whether there is a market for what you are selling. A Franchisor could offer you an amazing franchise package full of wonderful things, but if there is little or no market for what you are selling, your business will fail very quickly. Betterclean Services provide commercial cleaning to businesses across the UK. The UK commercial cleaning sector is worth more than £5.6 billion and is growing year on year. Almost every business within the UK has the need for their premises to be kept clean and hygienic and so the opportunities are endless. The recent events around the COVID-19 pandemic have placed a spotlight on good cleanliness and hygiene practices and Betterclean Services franchise owners have seen a significant upturn in business as a result. The cleaning industry is a repeat business sector, so as long as customer service levels remain consistently good, clients will stay with you for many years. This means that you are not constantly having to look for new clients month after month. Betterclean Services still look after many clients who first signed up over 20 years ago.
  • What do I get initially?
    Often referred to as the ‘Franchise Package’, your initial payment will cover the Licence to trade under the Betterclean Services brand, our in-depth training programme, plus a whole load of other items. The full content of the Franchise Package.
  • What ongoing support do I get?
    Franchising is a lower risk way of getting into business because you are purchasing a ‘tried and tested’ business model that has been proven by both the Franchisor and the franchise owners within the network. However, the success of your business will be impacted by the amount of support you receive from the franchise team throughout the life of your business. It is therefore very important to ask this question because if there is no ‘ongoing support’ then you may as well simply buy a “how to start a business” book and save your money as it amounts to the same thing. At Betterclean Services we not only understand that we need to be by your side every step of the way, but more importantly we want to be by your side. Everyone in the franchise support team has the same underlying goal – to help others build the business they want. Ongoing support is provided through a combination of direct experience, guidance and assistance from our Head Office team and a wealth of more specialised experience from our support partners. The combination of internal and external support means that you will be given all the support you need to reach your goals.
  • Why do I want my own business?
    People start their own business for many reasons, and you will have your own reason for looking at starting your business. Our current franchise owners joined Betterclean Services for several reasons, some want to build a strong business that will provide them with security and flexibility to spend more time with their families, others want to build an asset that they can sell in the future or use to provide them with an income while they do other things. We also have franchise owners who simply want to be rewarded for the hard work they put in. Building a business involves hard work and dedication to achieve, so it is important to understand that, although the longer term gains can be very rewarding, it will not be a ‘9 to 5’ in the early stages. As a business owner, the buck stops with you. You do not have the luxury of ‘knocking off’ at the end of a shift and handing over to someone else, you will be the person responsible for ensuring the business keeps going. However, with the ongoing support and guidance of an experienced team by your side, you will soon be able to decide where you want to ‘fit’ in your business and what level of involvement you want in the medium to long term and then create a plan to achieve that.
