Over the last decade, Fantastic Services has successfully built one of the most diverse franchises in the UK with an impressive portfolio of over 25 property maintenance and improvement services. The company has more than 400 franchise partners across the UK, the US, and Australia.
On an average day out in London, you are sure to spot at least a few of the hundreds of Fantastic Services vehicles that roam the busy streets of the capital. From professional cleaning and regular domestic care to gardening, handyman, pest control and much more – the potential for investment and business growth is tremendous.
While the sheer size of the brand and its flexible franchising model are feats on their own, these are hardly the most exciting aspects of Fantastic Services. What truly stands out is the brand’s focus on technology and innovation.
The company has developed its very own, custom-built customer relationship management system (CRM) to automate all sorts of processes that help franchisees run their businesses. With many cost- and time-saving capabilities for optimised service provision for anyone who operates as part of the network, the system ensures minimum hassle for Fantastic Services franchisees. Among many functionalities, the system is able to analyse any given job that has been booked by a customer and automatically fit it into the workday of a technician based on their qualification, set of skills, professional equipment, and even their proximity to the client’s property.
Co-founder and chief executive, Rune Sovndahl, is looking forward to meeting all the new franchise partners who will join Fantastic Services in 2019. She says: “We are excited to work with people who share our vision of stellar customer services and quality workmanship. The last two years have been monumental in terms of what we were able to achieve from a technical standpoint. From here on, the possibilities are limitless.”
It all starts with a simple and hassle-free on-boarding process. Fantastic Services has a fully automated online training platform which allows franchise partners to quickly and effortlessly get onboard with standards, procedures and service requirements.
From the very beginning, franchise partners receive professional support and guidance by the same managerial team that has grown the Fantastic Services brand. The company handles all the online marketing to generate leads and makes the locally available services as accessible as possible to the public. Franchisees focus their effort on managing their business and providing customers with a high-quality service.
Fantastic Services has worked for years to create several ground-breaking technological solutions for its industry. Franchisees gain access to the full technical package that grants access to their unique CRM system and mobile applications.
The company has designed and developed over 25 services that are fully standardised. This means that all technicians aim to achieve specific standards of quality in order to bring complete satisfaction to the end consumer. In addition, the monthly expenses for any given service become easy to calculate.
Founded in 2009 by Rune Sovndahl, now Fantastic Services’ CEO, and Anton Skarlatov, who today is a director of Fantastic Services, the business takes care of over 15,000 customers every month.
It originally started life as a cleaning company, but has grown to include the following brands:
• Fantastic Cleaners
• Fantastic Gardeners (launched 2010)
• Fantastic Handyman (launched 2011)
• Fantastic Builders (launched 2012)
• Fantastic Pest Control (launched 2013)
• Fantastic Waste Control (launched 2014)
Fantastic Services currently has 300-plus franchisees in the UK.
Fantastic Services has two franchise options: a regular franchise and a master franchise.
Investors have the choice of five distinct ‘regular franchise’ opportunities to choose from:
• Cleaning (domestic cleaning, deep cleaning, window cleaning, carpet cleaning and oven cleaning). Investment level: from £1,780
• Maintenance and repairs (handyman, electrician, plumbing). Investment level: from £2,205
• Garden and outdoor (gardening and landscaping). Investment level: from £2,055
• Removals. Investment level: from £2,830
• Pest control. Investment level: from £1,840.
Each of Fantastic Services’ regular franchises use a similar business model and all guarantee a supply of customers. Each franchisee’s workload can be managed using the franchisor’s bespoke online systems.
Investment for Fantastic Services’ master franchise option ranges from £10,000-£49,500.
This opportunity requires franchisees to take on more of a management role, as they’re responsible for the Fantastic Services business in a whole city or country.
The services are delivered by a team of sub-franchisees, who are recruited and managed by the holder of the master franchise licence.
The master franchise operator is also responsible for marketing the business and ensuring all services are delivered to a high standard.
Franchisees don’t need any industry experience for four out of the five regular franchises offered by Fantastic Services.
The exception is the maintenance and repairs franchise, for which franchisees must have practical experience of home maintenance and repairs and possess relevant plumbing and electrical qualifications.
All Fantastic Services franchisees must be computer/smartphone literate, reliable, good with people, and physically fit. They must also possess a clean driving licence.
Some of the Fantastic Services franchises require franchisees to have their own vehicle and tools/equipment.
Business management and sales and marketing skills are an advantage for the master franchise.
Fantastic Services is looking for franchisees for its regular franchises in London, Manchester and Liverpool.
Master franchises are available throughout the UK and worldwide.
This franchise is low cost and, considering investors are trained in Fantastic Services’ tried-and-tested systems, relatively low risk for the right candidates. However, as with all franchises, thorough research into the business is advised before making any type of commitment.
Many Fantastic Services franchisees have started off by offering a single service, growing their businesses by bolting on additional services as and when they are in a position to do so.
According to the company, demand for its services has increased steadily since it opened for business, particularly from time-poor domestic customers who, for example, need their house cleaned to a high standard on a regular basis or require the services of a reliable handyman.
A particularly attractive feature of the Fantastic Services franchise offering is that the franchisor finds customers for its franchisees. In addition, to encourage brand loyalty, customers can join the Fantastic Club, where for an annual fee they receive discounts on the usual rates charged by franchisees and benefit from exclusive deals.
Fantastic Services’ use of technology, such as its bespoke customer relationship management system and branded app, means that for franchisees many of the processes required to manage the business have been streamlined, while customers can book a range of services quickly and conveniently wherever they are.
Fantastic Services’ headquarters are in London.
To start the ball rolling, request further information on Fantastic Services’ franchises using our simple enquiry form on this page.
A representative from the company will then make contact and arrange a no obligation meeting to discuss the franchise in depth, which will take place either face to face or online.
Fantastic Services will want to know about your previous experience and qualifications, plus what your expectations and goals are.
Both parties will then agree on the best franchise option from within the Fantastic Services portfolio, as well as investment levels.
While the franchisee recruitment process gives a franchisor a chance to get to know would-be franchisees and their suitability to join its network, it’s also a good opportunity for potential investors to find out more about the franchisor, its position in the market in which it operates and how it runs its business.
