Want a guaranteed turnover? Join Dublcheck

John Brooks, has not looked back since he joined commercial cleaning franchise, Dublcheck, more than six years ago.

Since joining Dublcheck in 2004, John Brooks successfully developed his business into a profitable venture, achieving a guaranteed turnover of more than £50,000 per annum from Dublcheck within his first seven months of trading, having invested £28k for the guaranteed turnover. John grew his business to a £200,000 turnover and enjoyed the financial freedom and benefits it gave. An opportunity arose whereby John could sell his business for a substantial profit of more than £50,000 to an existing Dublcheck franchise owner and still have an ongoing relationship with Dublcheck, utilising the knowledge and experience he gained being a Dublcheck franchise owner.

“I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity of Commercial Manager with Dublcheck, involving the recruitment of new franchise owners, because I could identify with the concerns and questions that new franchise owners would have.”

“I first heard about Dublcheck at a franchise exhibition and was instantly impressed with its business model and guaranteed turnover opportunity,” reveals John. “I then visited the Dublcheck head office – that’s what sold it for me. Founder Carol Stewart-Gill and the whole team made me feel at ease, it just felt right.”

Before joining the Dublcheck business opportunity, John owned and ran a fish and chip shop for 15 years. Eager to pursue a career that would offer him flexibility, financial security and growth opportunities, John sold his business and turned to the franchise sector for inspiration.

Dublcheck, which was founded in 1993, has been franchising since 1994 and now has 100 franchise owners operating across the UK. All franchise owners are provided with a one-week training course at head office and ongoing support as part of their franchise package.

“For me, one of the most appealing aspects of the franchise package was its guaranteed turnover,” says John. “Having never worked in sales, I was nervous about this part of the business but Dublcheck takes care of everything for you.”

Dublcheck is the franchise where you don’t need to able to sell. Commercial cleaning is one of the best industries to join as a franchise owner because it is a market that is more robust and recession resistant than most others, due to the fact every building, office and shop need regular cleaning.

Dublcheck obtains all the business for its franchise owners, so they know exactly what turnover to expect. Franchise owners can start with a minimum turnover of £14,000 per annum if they wish to run their franchise as a hands-on business, or they can purchase up to £500,000 per annum if they want to run a management business.

Dublcheck also does all the invoicing for its franchise owners via its internet system, allowing them the freedom to concentrate on developing their client relationships and business development.

“I loved managing my business, but one of the things I enjoyed most was going to the franchise exhibitions with Carol and the Dublcheck team, and meeting prospective franchise owners,” says John. “I feel so passionate about the Dublcheck brand and enjoy sharing my positive and genuine thoughts about the franchise opportunity.”

“In my previous business I couldn't take time off, which meant my family and I had never been on a family holiday together – now I can take time off when I want,” beams John.

“After being self-employed for over 25 years, I never thought I would be employed, but I was more than willing to make that transition to become part of a team. I feel very fortunate that I am able to continue my excellent working relationship with Dublcheck,” enthuses John. “Joining Dublcheck was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I would definitely recommend it to individuals searching for a successful and supportive franchise network.”

Whatever your background, investing in a Dublcheck franchise can make you a success. Dublcheck franchise owners have seen an increase in turnover in this so called doom and gloom climate. Why? Because everywhere you look, buildings still need cleaning. The Dublcheck system puts its new franchise owners on the road to success by actually getting the business for them.
