There are Two stages to the training: Operating the Business and Delivering the Service.
Operating the Business
Our comprehensive training programme consists of a five-day residential all-inclusive programme. This focuses on understanding the market, selling Betterclean Services, covering all sales, marketing and administrative systems, together with the essential quality assurance procedures, maintaining standards and how to undertake and service the needs of our clients.
This is a very thorough and wide-ranging training programme which will ensure that the Franchise Owner is equipped with essential knowledge, information, facts and comprehension to maximise the opportunities for the business.
Delivering the service
This training has been developed to provide newly appointed supervisors with the knowledge and practical experience needed to effectively deliver the service to your clients. The training is carried out over two days at the Betterclean Services operation in Torquay and consists of both theory and practical training in cleaning methods, chemicals, equipment, standards and health & safety. This training must be attended by the Franchise Owner and/or their Supervisor.
The introduction of Betterclean Services’ Business Development Scheme in 2019 means that franchise owners are set off on the best possible start they can want. A guarantee to generate a minimum of £150,000 worth of business enquiries in year one means that you don’t need to worry about the sales process in the early stages of business growth because we do the work for you.
Through tried-and-tested methods, Betterclean Services will get you in front of decision makers who want to buy your services and we will even attend your first appointments with you so you can see first-hand how to sell the service and win the business.
The Betterclean Services head office team also stays in touch with owners, providing network days to bring franchisees together, to share ideas, opportunities and strategies.
Franchisees also receive essential support for the practical running of the business, such as legal support to help navigate change in employment law, online accountancy software, and a bespoke software system known as BLISS (Betterclean Logistical Information Software System), designed to reduce administrative task time, and simplify operations.
The commercial cleaning sector presents a thriving opportunity for potential business owners, valued at £6bn overall. The market includes an enormous range of businesses that require commercial cleaning services, and franchises have the prospect of not only enjoying strong returns from their investment but the chance to manage and scale their business according to their personal goals.
With dedicated support available throughout, Betterclean Services franchises can be a great opportunity for astute, business-minded individuals with drive and ambition.
Caroline Spiller, Owner/Director of Betterclean Services Exeter & Taunton
“I became a Betterclean franchisee in November 2016, when I bought the Exeter and Taunton territory as a going concern. Over the past two years, I have doubled the revenue and far exceeded the growth and income targets I had set myself. Betterclean provides franchisees with robust operating systems and procedures, that have allowed me to focus my energies on building a staff team that I am proud of, on developing strong client relationships, and on delivering a service that differentiates Betterclean from other cleaning providers.
“The support I have received from Head Office has been invaluable, in terms of advice on operational delivery, HR matters and business development, all of which have facilitated steady business growth. That, combined with a friendly network of fellow franchisees, has meant that I have never felt alone when encountering challenges along the way. Being able to work from home has given me personal flexibility, and kept my operating costs low while the business grows.
“In addition, the online management system, BLISS, enables me to run my business on-the-go, and means that I have a healthy work-life balance, unlike previous businesses I have run. The low management service fee has been critical in contributing to a sustainable profit margin in a very competitive industry. Finally, I would say that the Betterclean model provides a strong operational framework on which franchisees can build their business in line with their own strengths, interests and personal goals.”
Past experience in cleaning services is not a requirement for franchisees as we provide all the training you will need.
