The simple route to success with Chemex

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

The cleaning supplies specialist has introduced a lower franchise purchase price and is offering virtually guaranteed 100 per cent finance to all new franchise owners. Now a Chemex franchise can be purchased for just £19,995 + VAT, which provides a full turn-key operation backed by an industry leading training scheme and a comprehensive sales and marketing support service.

Chemex has been operating for nearly 30 years and is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of cleaning, hygiene and infection control products.

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 takes just 30 customers to break even and we guarantee to find them for every new franchise owner who joins us.

“We also provide telephone sales support and allocate a sales professional to accompany franchise owners to new business meetings to clinch sales agreements,” he continues.

“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, whereas others are happy to earn £30,000 a year while maintaining a relaxed lifestyle.”

Chemex franchise owner Mario Erispe 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.” Martyn Faint a former Detective Inspector, has quickly taken to the Chemex system. Within three months Martyn, who operates on the South coast, took on 50 customers.

“As a team member in the force I was a little worried about starting out alone but in all honesty the support has been fantastic. Over the last few months I have been helped to open two new accounts per day, which is already feeding through repeat business.

“It’s been a great start and I’m really enjoying running the business and meeting new people.”
