Secure your future with a guaranteed turnover*
After being made redundant twice, Adrian Stapley had lost all trust in employers. However, he was able to obtain the job security he had been searching for with commercial cleaning franchise, Dublcheck
Before launching his Birmingham-based Dublcheck franchise, Adrian Stapley had worked as a successful sales representative for many years, but after being made redundant, he decided to take control of his future and become his own boss.
“Once the recession took hold, I knew that it would be uncertain times for the job market, so I decided to look into franchising as it provides you with the benefits of being your own boss but with fewer risks,” explains Adrian.
“I went to The National Franchise Exhibition in Birmingham and spoke with a number of franchisors from a variety of franchise sectors, but it was Dublcheck’s recession proof services and guaranteed turnover that caught my eye.”
Unless you start on the assisted starter option which costs £9,950, Dublchek obtains the initial contracts for you. So you know exactly what turnover you get.
From an investment of £14,950 you can start with a minimum turnover of £14,000 per annum, if you want to run your business hands-on and start small while retaining the security of your current position. Alternatively, you can purchase with a view to achieving a turnover of up to £500,000 per annum if you want to run a management business.
To prepare Adrian for the launch of his Dublcheck franchise, he attended a comprehensive one-week training course at the company’s head office in Chester.
“As I had no previous experience in the industry, I found the training to be a huge help,” says Adrian. “During the course of the week I learnt about all aspects of the franchise, from how to manage paperwork and the day-to-day running of the business.”
Since launching his Dublcheck franchise in March, Adrian and his partner Zoe have taken a hands-on approach to the new business. “My business has now come to a point where it’s making a nice profit. I am looking to hire more cleaners so I can take a step back and focus on the managerial role,” reveals Adrian.
Dublcheck is a franchise where you don’t need to able to sell. Commercial cleaning is a market that is generally more robust and recession resistant than most others, due to the fact every building, office and shop needs regular cleaning. The Dublcheck system puts its new franchise owners on the road to success by actually getting the business for them.
“As Dublcheck source most of my contract appointments I don’t have to worry about cold calling and can really concentrate on building customer relationships and developing my business,” explains Adrian. “I have met with established Dublcheck franchise owners who are turning over 10 times more than me, so I am confident that with my continued hard work and support from the Dublcheck franchise team my business will be a highly profitable success, and after only six months the level of turnover I am on now would have cost me three times more from Dublcheck.”
