One of the most successful US business-to-business service franchises is now available in the UK
You may not have heard of HOODZ - yet. HOODZ is the US market leader for franchised commercial kitchen cleaning and fire prevention solutions for restaurants, institutions and other food service industries.
It has great repeat business due to commercial and governmental requirements for extractor cleaning, as well as fire safety.
HOODZ offers a range of additional services for commercial kitchen operators, including the expertise to disassemble, clean and put back together commercial pizza ovens, making the facilities safe for employees, residents and the community.
How does the HOODZ franchise model work?
HOODZ is part of BELFOR, one of the world’s largest franchise companies. BELFOR already has a UK presence and HOODZ UK’s base is at Belfor House just north of Birmingham.
HOODZ is recruiting franchisees directly and providing full training and ongoing technical and marketing support in the UK.
As a franchisee, you have exclusive territory rights to your geographic area to operate, market and develop your HOODZ business.
What territories are available?
Currently there are several territories under offer, but there is still extensive availability across the UK and Ireland. Territories have been designed so that you can develop a successful multi-van operation.
Would HOODZ suit me?
Successful HOODZ franchisees have the following attributes:
• Business acumen. Do you know how to make a business successful and thrive?
• A track record of successful business development in your preferred territory.
• At least £30,000 to invest in the franchise.
• A good learner, who can cope well with challenging situations.
What training and support will I receive?
Built around a culture of extensive training and superior customer service, the HOODZ corporate team offers unparalleled support to its franchise owners.
In order to best prepare you for success, the HOODZ franchise team provides unmatched, hands-on experience in everything from extractor and ducting disassembly to cleaning, repair and troubleshooting.
Your training will be held at the BELFOR Franchise Group offices in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
HOODZ also has an academy, which is an online training programme that can be accessed at any time at no cost to franchisees.
In regards to marketing assistance, HOODZ provides customizable templates for franchisees that will save them money, time and stress.
The company also organises national initiatives, which will benefit local franchisees.
Why should I invest in HOODZ?
HOODZ is a great investment because its services are necessary on an ongoing basis. This is because commercial and governmental requirements mandate regular cleaning, resulting in recurring revenues.
Also, the franchise primarily works as a home-based business, meaning your overhead costs will be minimal and the business model ensures you can be successful with a limited staff.
Another great aspect of HOODZ is that the service market is fragmented with few competitors, making you the major player in the industry.
In the USA, where HOODZ has been established for many years, franchisees are generating over £250,000 per year, per van they operate and with low overheads (primarily labour and cleaning materials) they enjoy healthy profits.
