Cleaning + Hygiene Solutions from Chemex

= A Brilliant Business Opportunity for You

CHEMEX INTERNATIONAL began life as a franchise in 1985 (then called Chemical Express), selling the company's own, specially manufactured cleaning and hygiene products. It had enjoyed a good reputation, winning the title of Franchisor of the Year in 1996. But it had been a single-operator type opportunity.

In 2006, the company was sold to three franchising veterans who, almost immediately, redirected the franchisee recruitment philosophy to that of a business-building concept, seeking people whose aspirations included growing a 'proper' business, an asset that could be sold on with real value. Chemex International says it only looks for the very best.

The qualities required are those that are vital to be a successful businessperson. Candidates should be enthusiastic and energetic team players - but also rooted in reality. They should be prepared to start off small, but have great ambition and work towards a business building opportunity. The franchise licence fee costs £8,500, while the remainder of the package is £13,000 (recommended working capital is £10,000 minimum).

The package includes an exclusive large area; full induction and ongoing training (featuring ongoing support from field support managers); a comprehensive start-up pack; a computerised management and accounts system; an individual website; top quality products; financial support from High Street banks; a fully kitted out mobile showroom/s; not to mention top quality customers and repeat orders.

Chemex International supplies cleaning and hygiene products to customers who need them as a necessity rather than a luxury. Because of the strict hygiene regimes in the UK and Europe and the health and safety requirements in the core areas of catering, leisure and healthcare, there are many opportunities open to franchisees.

Our products however, are just a part of what we have to offer. Our franchised businesses deliver a professional yet distinctively personal service; a service that responds to orders within hours, delivers direct to customers and provides ongoing support regarding cleaning and hygiene matters. Very importantly, our cleaning and hygiene products are increasingly becoming necessities not luxuries and are required by many businesses to enable them to achieve health and safety legislation standards. This fact alone makes a Chemex Franchise business almost recession proof.
