Zerodrytime’s proven business model is perfectly positioned to teach you the secrets of success

In the last four years, the UK franchise industry has grown by 10 per cent, meaning the sector now contributes over £17 billion to the UK economy.

Today, franchising goes beyond just selling physical products. Services such as cleaning are rapidly growing opportunities, with Zerodrytime testimony to the rising popularity of franchising in the cleaning sector.

The UK has in excess of 26 million households and many hundreds of thousands of businesses that require carpet, leather, upholstery and hard floor cleaning.

David Muirhead, founder of Zerodrytime, operated a commercial contract cleaning company before turning his hand to carpets and upholstery. Trying every possible method, he identified a new potential market - dry carpet cleaning, which means no wet, soggy carpets.

In 2006, Zerodrytime was launched. Utilising the latest technology and David’s advanced industry knowledge, the franchise business continues to grow each year. There are currently 78-plus franchisees in the UK and Northern Ireland, with more new franchises due to join the company in the coming months.

Successful track record

Successful franchises tend to be those with clear business processes that consistently deliver positive results to their customers. Over the years, Zerodrytime’s franchisees have built a track record for success that demonstrates the impressive potential for a new franchisee.

Zerodrytime franchisees are proud of this achievement and the company actively encourages anyone considering investing in the franchise to speak to existing franchisees about these claims.

Established brand

Anyone who has built a business from scratch knows that developing a strong brand can be a slow, exhausting process. One of the biggest advantages of franchising is that you’re buying into an already well established brand that has a perceived value in the eyes of consumers.

Training and support

Sometimes people forget that it’s in the company’s interest to give its franchisees the greatest possible chance to succeed. Zerodrytime’s proven business model is perfectly positioned to teach new and existing franchisees the secrets of success.

The team based at the company’s head office and Itraining centre in the north east of England ensure new franchisees can look forward to a successful future with a series of mandatory training programmes, which must be completed before hitting the road. They need to understand and learn the franchise’s values, business model and processes.

New franchisees don’t need any carpet cleaning experience. The Zerodrytime team, headed up by David, train you in every part of the process. Most importantly, new franchisees are given real-life training in customer’s homes and business premises, so they can see the Zerodrytime system first-hand, learning all the techniques, tips and terminology of the trade.

Beyond initial training, a good franchise continues to support its franchisees, helping them build better, more profitable relationships as they go.

Zerodrytime is continuously launching new products and marketing strategies to further support franchisees, increasing available sales collateral and allowing franchisees more time to focus on building their customer base and a business to be proud of.
