Dublcheck is a commercial cleaning company that was founded in 1993 by accomplished entrepreneur Carol Stewart-Gill.
Now in its 26th year, Dublcheck has more than 100 franchisees and has been awarded the title of one of the UK’s fastest growing private companies, according to The Sunday Times and Virgin Fast Track 100.
The company provides a robust opportunity for franchisees because the growth and profit potential can be maximised due to the experience, knowledge and systems Dublcheck has developed within this sector.
Dublcheck is the franchise where you don’t need to be able to sell. The company obtains all the business for its franchisees, so they know exactly what turnover they will
It is possible to start with the minimum turnover of £12,000 per annum for those wanting to run their business hands on, while retaining the security of their current job.
Alternatively, it is possible to purchase up to £500,000 million per annum for those who want to run a management business.
There is no upper limit on earnings and franchisees can tailor the business to suit their needs and work-life balance. The variable investment levels offered by Dublcheck give franchisees the flexibility to run a hands-on business, partly managed with some hands on, or a wholly-managed business, depending on their skills, ambitions and personal requirements.
Whatever your background, investing in a Dublcheck commercial cleaning franchise can provide potentially significant financial returns. The company’s approved training programme aims to make franchisees a professional in their field.
Not only does head office walk you through a full training course, it obtains cleaning contracts for each individual who invests in the network.
What locations or territories is Dublcheck looking to operate in?
Locations to run a Dublcheck franchise are available nationwide. There is no territory exclusivity, so there is no limit to the growth or scope of your business.
Why is Dublcheck a good investment?
The commercial cleaning sector is massive and expected to grow substantially over the coming years.
Improved standards of living and higher expectations about the working environment ensure cleaning is at the top of the priority list - rather than an afterthought - in public spaces and offices nationwide.
Cleaning services for residential and commercial consumers have gained in popularity, owing to factors such as growth in construction levels, investment in real estate, increased disposable income and an ever increasing number of working women.
Commercial cleaning is one of the best industries to join as a franchisee, due to that fact that every building, office and shop needs regular cleaning.
Some of the other benefits of a Dublcheck franchise include:
• Guaranteed turnover.
• Low cost entry.
• Invoicing and cash collection service provided by the franchisor.
• Low overheads, as you can operate from home.
Where in the UK is the Dublcheck franchise based?
Dublcheck’s head office is based in Chester.
What support and training does Dublcheck franchisees receive?
Franchisees start with an initial in-house training programme comprising both theoretical and practical elements, giving them a thorough understanding of how to operate their own commercial cleaning business using Dublcheck’s proven systems and methods.
They receive professional training in health and safety and employment law, delivered by a specially qualified team. Additional modular training, which is specifically tailored to meet franchisees’ needs, is always available.
Franchisees are assisted with visibility and branding. These are important not just at contract signing stage, but also on a day-to-day basis while travelling in their chosen postcode area.
A mentor is allocated to all new franchisees to support and oversee the establishment of their businesses in the first year. The mentor is on hand to answer any questions or advise on operational matters. It is an invaluable support mechanism for any individual entering into a new field.
While Dublcheck franchisees and the company’s sales team are building successful businesses, the team at head office issue customer invoices on behalf of franchisees, as well as provide IT support and operational and technical advice as and when required.
They transfer the signed contracts to franchisees, enabling them to build a good relationship with the customer. This enables them to ensure their cleaners are trained, motivated and supported as other contracts are secured. The same process is repeated until their target turnover is reached.
With regular income provided through these monthly contracts, franchisees have no need to worry about seasonal trends.
What are the Dublcheck franchise terms of agreement and renewal?
The Dublcheck commercial cleaning franchise operates on a 20-year licence. This is renewable every five years at no extra cost.
How in demand is commercial cleaning right now?
A clean environment is essential to good health and in the increasingly fast-paced world cleaning remains one of the most popular franchise opportunities.
A significant proportion of growth is generated by the commercial sector, as new office construction and refurbishment levels improve and take up and occupancy levels increase.
In addition, there is increasing pressure on the cleaning industry to improve standards, particularly in the healthcare sector. To meet demand, there has been a concerted effort within the cleaning industry to improve standards and increase efficiency, which has resulted in more employers using tried and tested cleaning companies that can demonstrate a high level of competence.
An underlying trend towards greater levels of outsourcing over the last decade has driven demand for the contracting out of cleaning services in particular.
Dublcheck believes that the commercial cleaning industry is practically recession-proof and with possible economic uncertainty ahead the fact all commercial premises will still need to be cleaned professionally is comforting.
