Extra Help is a national franchise network that provides home help and domestic cleaning services to many different types of people, including the elderly, new parents and working professionals.
The company is proud to be celebrating its 10th birthday this year. That’s 10 years of assisting thousands of happy customers.
10 years of building a family of wonderful franchisees across the country, who all work incredibly hard to build Extra Help’s collective reputation. They are essential in maintaining the trustworthy, positive brand and company ethos Extra Help is so proud of.
Managing director Claire Robinson explains why Extra Help is such a great opportunity for people who are looking for a low cost franchise with high returns that they can get up and running easily:
Why should a potential franchisee invest in Extra Help, especially at the moment?
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been able to keep operating, unlike many other businesses who were forced to close their doors.
We even recruited seven new franchisees during the recent lockdown, which proves Extra Help is a viable franchise opportunity, even in the current economic climate.
Our flexible business model meant our franchisees could simply focus on promoting the services they were still able to provide during lockdown, such as window cleaning, shopping, dog walking, gardening, etc, so were able to continue to earn an income, even though we were not permitted to enter people’s homes.
Also, as many of our customers are elderly or vulnerable, we were allowed to continue to assist them.
What’s so special about Extra Help?
Quite simply, it’s the people. Our selection process ensures we only choose franchisees who are genuinely passionate about helping others.
This means that not only do our customers feel safe, valued and cared for, but we have also created a strong family of franchisees who care about helping each other to achieve success.
We encourage them to collaborate and build relationships with each other and assign mentors to new franchisees, so they never feel alone.
What makes the ideal Extra Help franchisee?
Extra Help franchisees are compassionate and trustworthy, with a strong desire to help others.
They’re also highly motivated and willing to do whatever it takes to build their reputations within their local communities. People who are happy to follow a tried and tested, simple business model, but don’t need to be micromanaged, would be ideal.
You don’t necessarily need experience of running a business, but management experience is useful, as you’ll be running a team, coordinating schedules, etc. Good communication and customer service skills are obviously essential.
