Brilliant Customer Service launched its franchise opportunity in November 2018. The company currently has seven franchisees in the UK.
Having been fully trained by Brilliant Customer Service and by following the company’s proven systems of operation, franchisees offer consulting, coaching and training services to local and national businesses who want to exceed the expectations of their customers. 65 per cent of fees paid by clients go to the franchisee, with the remaining 35 per cent going to the franchisor.
The team at Brilliant Customer Service HQ undertake all of the laborious and time consuming administrative elements of dealing with a client, freeing up the franchisee to
focus on the more profitable aspects of building their business.
There are no requirements for staff or office premises and the franchise can be run on a full or part-time basis.
Prospective franchisees must have the ability to be able to deliver first-class customer service training, gain satisfaction in helping others and have the ambition to be their own boss. They must also be effective communicators, possess good presentation skills, be self-motivated and be able to develop long term customer relationships.
The company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK.
As first-class customer service is one of the cornerstones of successful businesses across all sectors, the expertise offered by Brilliant Customer Service franchisees is always in demand. Because of this, earning potential is high, according to the company, which states that an annual income of £100,000 is achievable.
Other attractive features of this franchise are that the ongoing cost of running the business is low, the potential for referral and repeat custom is good and there is very little competition.
Franchisees also gain access to Brilliant Customer Service’s know-how, which has been developed over 25 years.
In addition, many franchisees of this company say they enjoy high levels of satisfaction in their roles, as they are helping people become more effective in their jobs.
Of the franchise opportunity, franchisee Alistair MacLennan says: “I was delighted to discover that I could quickly make an excellent income, not just from the various training programmes, but also from all the coaching and businesses assessment programmes the company offers.
“I’m also very impressed at the level of ongoing support I receive every day from the very friendly head office team, as well as the initial sales drive that has helped me secure my first customers.
“For over 20 years, I worked in the telecoms industry managing sales teams across a wide range of global locations and I always enjoyed being involved in the mentoring, training and coaching of all the individuals in my team. But I became highly frustrated by the amount of international travel that kept me away from home.
“So in 2018, I decided to see if I could find a suitable local franchise and was delighted when I came across the Brilliant Customer Service franchise opportunity, as I quickly realised it would allow me to work at what I enjoy doing best - delivering new skills that help individuals and businesses to do a far more effective job.”
The company headquarters are in Milton Keynes.
A franchisee’s initial training lasts for eight days and takes place at Brilliant Customer Service’s head office or a nearby training facility. Once training is completed, a
comprehensive training back up and support package is put in place for the first 12 months.
All aspects of the business are covered in the company’s training programme, including how to successfully market the services provided by franchisees and attracting and retaining customers.
To maximise their billable hours - and, as a result, their earning potential - support for franchisees is provided in the following areas:
• IT set up
• Paperwork and administration
• Managing workshops and training sessions
• Workshop design and customisation
• Invoicing and credit control
• Sales and prospecting support
Brilliant Customer Service says that as the company is dependent on the success of its franchisees, its support staff are always on hand to provide the best in back up and support.
This company’s initial franchise agreement lasts for five years and is granted on a rolling basis, with no additional charge to the franchisee.
