About NIC Services Group
NIC Services Group is one of the UK’s leading providers of facilities management services through a franchise network. The company has been involved in the commercial cleaning industry for over 50 years and has over 20 years of franchising experience.
NIC Services Group is a full member of the British Franchise Association and International Franchise Association.
How does the NIC Services Group franchise model work?
Although NIC Services Group is a commercial cleaning company, the company’s franchisees are not cleaners - they are individuals who manage and build an efficient commercial cleaning business for themselves with the support and ongoing guidance of the franchisor through their team of business development managers.
With a senior management team who has over 150 years of combined industry experience, NIC has the knowledge and experience to make every one of its franchise owners a success.
The business can be run either from home or a suitable office and NIC Services Group franchisees receive guidance with generating appointments and assistance with quoting and winning business.
NIC Services Group is looking to recruit franchisees who have strong people skills, as managing a team is a huge part of the business. They should also be motivated, with a desire to run a successful franchise.
The investment fee for a NIC franchise is £30,000 for a 5-year agreement.
NIC Services Group says it has good relationships with the franchise departments at NatWest, Lloyds and HSBC, who look favorably on applications for finance from candidates.
What locations or territories are NIC Services Group looking to operate in?
The company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK.
Why is an NIC Services Group franchise a good investment?
With this business, there’s the potential for rapid growth and huge market potential. NIC Services Group also guarantees franchisees a minimum year one gross profit, subject to investment level.
In addition, a number of market conditions make an investment in an NIC Services Group franchise a sound one:
• The commercial cleaning sector, which has an annual spend of over £8.8bn and growing every year, is virtually recession-proof as commercial buildings need cleaning on a regular basis - many every day.
• There are plenty of potential customers to target, both in the private and public sectors.
• As an NIC Services Group franchise can be operated from home, overheads are low and profits can be significant since an office space isn’t necessary. NIC Services Group has franchisees who have turned over in excess of £250,000 in their first year.
• Once a contract has been secured and fantastic services are delivered, the chances of repeat business are high. There are also opportunities to provide customers with additional services.
Where in the UK is the NIC Services Group franchise based?
The company’s head office is in Leeds, Yorkshire.
What training and support do NIC Services Group franchisees receive?
An extensive training programme is delivered that addresses all aspects of the business. Initial franchisee training takes place at NIC Services Group’s purpose-built training centre in Leeds.
Areas covered in the programme include the different types of cleaning methods, how to effectively establish, run and grow a franchise business, and the best ways to promote an NIC Services Group business and attract and retain clients.
An ongoing support programme is provided through NIC Service Group’s business development managers, who are based locally to the franchisee and have regular review meetings with them.
The company’s mentoring programme is designed to ensure a franchisee’s business is both successful and profitable, while ‘back office’ support includes payroll, invoicing and credit control functions.
What are the NIC Services Group franchise’s terms of agreement and renewal?
The initial franchise agreement lasts for five years, after which franchisees can renew to trade using the NIC Services Group brand and systems subject to agreement from both parties.
How in demand are the services provided by NIC Services Group?
Commercial cleaning is a necessity, which means that commercial cleaning franchises providing such a service are always in demand, particularly businesses such as NIC Services Group which has a successful track record in the industry.
In addition, the recent and continuing trend towards contracting out the cleaning of offices and other company premises means the commercial cleaning industry - worth around £8.8bn to the UK economy annually - looks set to grow.
