Secure your future with a guaranteed turnover
With benefits including guaranteed turnover, massive market potential and 18 years of industry experience to draw on, Dublcheck franchise owner Chris Leicester found the ideal business opportunity.
Before joining, Dublcheck, Chris Leicester worked as a Senior Manager for the county council for 16 years while also pursuing his passion for property development. One day at the gym, Chris heard a Dublcheck advert on the radio, which sparked some memories.
“It was all a bit of a strange coincidence really,” recalls Chris. “I first heard about Dublcheck over 18 years ago when I was working in the loans department at the county council. Dublcheck’s founder and Chairman, Carol Stewart-Gill (pictured right), came to us requesting a business loan.
“Even back then I could see the huge potential in the business, so I was interested to see how the business had developed and decided to get in touch.”
Chris met Carol Stewart-Gill to discuss the commercial cleaning franchise and to see if it was the right opportunity for him.
“I was looking for a business that would provide me with flexibility, as I have family commitments, with good earning potential and the chance to showcase my management skills. After speaking to the Dublcheck franchise team and some of its franchise owners – they were all incredibly friendly and helpful – I decided that Dublcheck ticked all the right boxes for me.”
For some, leaving the security of a salaried job may seem daunting, but with Dublcheck’s guaranteed turnover scheme franchise owners know exactly what turnover they will get from day one.
“For me, one of the most attractive features of the Dublcheck franchise was its guaranteed turnover scheme,” says Chris. “It’s reassuring to know that I have an experienced team helping me obtain customers and build my business.”
Dublcheck is a franchise where you don’t need to be able to sell. Commercial cleaning is one of the best industries to join as a franchise owner. It’s a market that’s more robust and recession resistant than most others, due to the fact the build-up of dirt never stops – every building, office and shop needs regular cleaning.
Established in 1993, Dublcheck has grown into a national network of more than 100 franchise owners and can boast an impressive 90 per cent client retention rate.
The Dublcheck franchise package includes comprehensive training, covering all aspects of the business, with dedicated ongoing support from the Dublcheck franchise team, which includes an experienced mentor to help oversee the establishment of new franchise owners businesses within their first year.
“I have to say, the Dublcheck mentoring programme is the best I have ever seen,” enthuses Chris. “My mentor often contacts me to ensure the business is doing well and is always happy to offer advice and guidance. It’s good to know that if I have a problem, it can be resolved quickly either by speaking to my mentor or the Dublcheck head office.
“As Dublcheck takes care of my invoicing and business generation, I can concentrate on providing customers with an excellent service, helping me obtain repeat customers and attract new ones,” explains Chris. “I currently have nine cleaners working with me and 12 contracts secured with the promise of council contracts coming very soon. Since I joined Dublcheck they have stayed true to their word and I have not been disappointed in my new business.”
