Cleaning, Commercial & Industrial
EnviroGroup is a specialist cleaning franchise, that provides kitchen and ventilation ductwork cleaning services for the hospitality industry. EnviroGroup provides services for commercial kitchens in restaurants and hotels, as well as for buildings with extensive ventilation systems.
EnviroGroup is a well established brand leader in the kitchen and air duct hygiene sector, and has been providing services around the country for nearly two decades. As an award-winning service provider, the brand is associated with quality, reliability and safety with its clients.
EnviroGroup has built its success by not only providing services for commercial kitchens, but by expanding its knowledge and expertise into other complementary services, by offering ventilation cleaning.
All of its services are provided in accordance with the UK’s Building Engineering Services Association and are kept up to date with industry standards and practices, helping them to build a strong national customer base. EnviroGroup also issues relevant certification as required by its clients’ insurance providers, helping to increase customer loyalty and confidence in the brand.
The franchise is based at Newry, in Northern Ireland.
Currently, EnviroGroup is looking to recruit franchisees across the UK, and have territories available across the North of England, Scotland, London, the Midlands and the South West. You will receive an exclusive regional territory once you start your franchise, and may have the opportunity to expand into multiple territories, once the business is established.
To start a standard EnviroGroup franchise, you’ll need to invest £23,950 (excluding VAT). The company offers three levels of franchise packages overall, classed as Standard, Gold and Platinum, with varying levels of support and territory size available, depending on a potential franchisee’s experience and business goals.
The company has links with most High Street banks to help potential franchisees receive loans for up to 70 per cent of the total start-up costs. EnviroGroup is also accredited with Transmit Funding, and franchisees may be able to receive up to £25,000 if required.
All EnviroGroup franchise packages include the main franchise package, which covers initial training and ongoing support later on, access to a 24/7 helpline and technical support, vehicle livery and racking, and specialised equipment.
All franchisees also receive their own website and branded products, and are given an individual telemarketing campaign to support their promotional efforts, as well as access to national contracts.
The company offers an extensive training and support programme, to help franchisees familiarise themselves with all aspects of the business.
Prior to launch, all franchisees must first complete an initial 10-day training programme, which encompasses all key parts of running a business – from technical training in using equipment, materials and carrying out services correctly and safely, to developing understanding of marketing and sales for the hospitality industry.
Following the initial training period, you will then undergo further hands-on training with supervision, in all practical elements of the business. The company will then provide a tailored launch programme for every franchise, designed to help create maximum awareness and impact across the local region.
The EnviroGroup franchise model also provides continuing support and training once franchisees have launched their businesses successfully, with continued support in all areas such as ensuring they meet industry compliance standards, training staff, and operational guidance.
Franchisees are also provided with a wide range of marketing tools and extensive support to help them reach out to their client base, including a telemarketing and online SEO campaign, and continue support from a dedicated franchise manager. You will also receive own-label uniforms and products, for a professional and trustworthy appearance.
EnviroGroup’s franchise works on a straight forward business model that only requires a van to transport equipment and service clients. All other business administrative activities can be managed from a home office, giving franchisees flexibility and the opportunity to choose their working hours, or balance the business with other commitments.
While it can be helpful to have some prior understanding, you do not need any experience in the industry beforehand – however, it is essential to have drive and determination to start your own successful van franchise, and have good communication skills to network with existing and potential clients.
The hospitality industry remains a recession-market, as businesses in this sector are legally required to ensure they are compliant with the latest health and safety regulations, and it is vital to have reliable and trustworthy providers, to ensure their facilities are safe for customers and employees.
EnviroGroup provide essential services such as kitchen deep cleans and kitchen ductwork cleaning, which helps reduce their clients’ equipment costs by keeping them maintained to a high stardard, and helping restaurants and other hospitality sector businesses achieve higher cleanliness and safety ratings. With the hospitality sector valued at over £100bn, it offers potential franchisees a large and growing market.
EnviroGroup also provide services beyond the catering industry, by offering ventilation ductwork cleaning. This is an essential service for all commercial and residential buildings with ventilation systems to provide safe and clean air, and reduce fire hazards. All franchisees are trained to offer this, and can tap into an enormous market, with the potential of earning £50,000 or more a year.
With comprehensive training and support at all stages of launching your franchise, EnviroGroup are heavily invested in making sure their franchisees succeed, making this a great business prospect for anyone looking for a flexible opportunity.
