Here’s what Alan Thomson, Managing Director of Adept Cleaning Services Ltd, had to say:
FDS Midlands was always happy to work at the pace we wanted. We first agreed the strategy plan and then rolled out the franchise infrastructure step by step. FDS provided particular help in those areas where we ourselves were weakest. Even after completion of the work, our consultant continues to take a real interest in the progress of our franchise business, which is now progressing well in line with our expectations.

Here’s what Graham Brown, Managing Director of Forces Recruitment Services Ltd, had to say:
We chose FDS Midlands for help with bringing our franchise to market and were delighted with the results. The specific tasks we required were all completed within a couple of months and their quality was outstanding. Most importantly, Ken Young continued to make himself available, answering further questions and providing additional advice, long after completion of the actual work. We are now pleased to say that we have 11 franchise owners in place and are well positioned for continued steady expansion during the year ahead.

Some other brands we have worked with:
Pet Carers, ComputerXplorers, FiltaFry, Ovenclean, Recognition Express, ChipsAway, Belvoir!, Look Local, ServiceMaster, Minster Cleaning Services, Chemex, CleanMy
