Pilot franchise excels
It’s been a successful first year for Simon Youngs, Total Clean’s pilot franchise. Simon became the first Total Clean franchise partner in April 2013 and his success has certainly set the standard for future franchise partners.
“Having been instrumental in shaping the franchise model and with my previous professional training and business development experience, it made the most sense for me to operate a territory on a pilot basis. This gives me a more complete understanding of the operation of the business; allowing me to provide better guidance and training to new franchise partners as they come on board,” says Simon.
Simon opened for business in April 2013 and he hasn’t looked back since. The Total Clean franchise package provided Simon with a complete turnkey business that included everything he needed to operate his business in the first year; one which can be easily operated from home to keep overheads low. Winning annual cleaning contracts worth in excess of £125,000 in just his first 10 months of trading, the pilot is thriving despite the continued economic downturn and it only looks set to improve following a record recent three months’ sales.
More new franchise partners for 2014
Total Clean has plans for further expansion in the first quarter of 2014, with three new franchise partners due to launch in the first quarter of this year. Who knows what lays in store for the Total Clean franchise network in 2014?
“2013 was more successful than we could have hoped with the launch of our franchise opportunity. I’m pleased to see that the values on which Total Clean was founded 25 years ago have resonated with a significant number of franchise candidates - an unrelenting commitment to service excellence and an obsessive attention to detail,” explains Carlos Garcia, Total Clean’s Managing Director.
