Simple route to business success

Chemex has revealed a new financial package to help prospective franchise owners take advantage of the firm’s continuing success


The cleaning and hygiene supplies specialist, Chemex, has introduced a lower franchise purchase price and is confident of prospects gaining the finance necessary through its approval system. Now a Chemex franchise can be purchased for as little as £19,995 + VAT (limited period offer), which provides a full turn-key operation backed by an industry leading training scheme and a comprehensive sales and marketing support service.

Managing Director Michael Graham says: “Our business is virtually recession proof because we supply necessities not luxuries and our franchise owners are enjoying continued success where other businesses are struggling.

“We appreciate that it is a big step to invest in a new business which is why we have developed a package of support that makes owning a Chemex franchise easy and affordable.

“Chemex franchises are simple and straightforward to run with £300,000 turnover achievable from just one van, producing 46 per cent gross profit. It can take as few as 30 customers to break even and we guarantee to find 30 new customers for every new franchise owner who joins us.

“We are offering a wonderful opportunity for people to run a highly enjoyable business which has the potential for expansion into a multi-van operation. Some of our franchise owners turnover more than £1 million a year, while others are happy to earn £30,000 a year while maintaining a relaxed lifestyle. “We know there are many people who could benefit from our success and this new package will enable them to escape the recession and enjoy running a prosperous business without having to jump over financial hurdles.”

Chemex franchise owner Mario Erispe (pictured above) never even considered a man-and-a-van type business from his background in corporate sales, but the fact was his investment level wasn’t enough to buy into high street retail.

“Once I thought it through I could see that actually when you measured things up it was less cost, less risk and frankly better returns,” explains Mario.

“Chemex bases its proposition on achieving the first goal of 100 customers spending £100 a month. Chemex helps to create these customers and over time I have picked through and chosen the customers I want to ensure that the area works efficiently and effectively for me.

“It’s simple,” he continues, “It’s direct and it has potential only limited by the time and effort you apply. Your van is your office, your delivery device and your marketing tool. Its cost repays itself time and time again and in the end, when you sell your business, you are not left with any nasty property leases or repair bills.”
