A low risk franchise offering a wealth of success
Trevor White, Head of Franchise Support and Operations UK at Daily Poppins, explains how the business is attracting increasing numbers of people wanting to take control of their own destiny
Developing and managing a successful business from home is a wish for many, but for Daily Poppins franchise owners, it gives them an opportunity to have a lifestyle afforded by few. This was a key attraction for Daily Poppins’ first franchise owner, Agnes Gazecka (pictured right, top), who had previously operated a small commercial cleaning company.
“I was looking for a business that I could manage from home,” she explains. “I was expecting my first child and really wanted a level of flexibility in my everyday work. I was comfortable managing people, so this allowed me to manage teams of cleaners while at the same time not being tied down into fixed daily routines. I now do whatever I want during the day – no more working in the evenings or weekends!“
In contrast to her previous experience, Agnes has found Daily Poppins to be very low risk.
“All my clients are small, therefore, if you lose one for any particular reason, it really does not make that much difference to your business. Also, I found domestic clients to be far more pleasant than business ones and we are not chasing invoices as our customers pay in advance.”
Daily Poppins is a management franchise using an easy to follow model, supported by one of the most comprehensive packages that takes franchise owners to a different level when operating their business. Whether it be using the cloud-based, business software on an iPad allowing them to continue working while out or the unique online customer enquiry tracking, a Daily Poppins franchise rewards individuals who have the determination and drive to implement a proven business model.
For individuals new to self-employment, Daily Poppins provides a security blanket of business mentoring from a franchise Support Manager. This, together with group franchise owner meetings, 24/7 support via an intranet network, back-up call centre and external support in key areas like employment law, means Daily Poppins provides all the necessary tools to assist a successful business.
For any prospective franchise owner concerned about the economic climate, in a £3 billion UK domestic cleaning market, they should look no further than the 22 per cent annual growth rate in the existing network.
Mike Mignogna (pictured right, bottom), the Daily Poppins Woking franchise owner says: “I have been up and running now for just over two years and already my turnover is approaching £300,000. From day one, I have had excellent support from the Daily Poppins team who are always helpful, which confirms their supportive culture.
With excellent profitability, I am acquiring a second territory and with the increasing number of services, I fully expect my turnover not to double but to possibly treble!”
With a minimum capital requirement of £2,500 for midi-territories, Daily Poppins presents an ideal platform for franchise owners to flourish in a true management franchise.
