Maximise your potential with an NIC commercial cleaning franchise
NIC has been involved in the commercial cleaning sector for over 50 years and has over 20 years’ franchising experience.
It’s this industry knowledge and experience, together with the low overheads that come from being a home-based management franchise, that ensures the continued success of its franchisees.
Minimise the risk
Starting your own business can be a daunting prospect. Having a network of support and a proven business model can help you to minimise the risk and maximise your potential. It’s your own business, but you have the support, training and a successful and recognised brand behind you.
As one of the largest single industries in the UK, currently worth over £8.8 billion per year, the cleaning and support services market continues to grow. With this significant growth potential and the majority of the work being contractual business, NIC franchisees continue to grow year on year.
The potential is only limited by a franchisee’s vision, drive, commitment and enthusiasm, which is why people like Rob Hampton, Kerry Miller and Charlotte Eccleston have built successful businesses.
Rob chose to become part of the NIC network after running his own cleaning business. Since joining NIC, he has seen his business grow to over £800,000 a year.
Rob says: “I began to look at how I could take my business to the next level and chose NIC, as I could see the benefits of the support and national presence that an experienced franchisor could offer me.”
He adds: “I was able to use my existing knowledge of the cleaning industry, which together with the excellent sales and marketing support offered by NIC, meant I was able to grow my business substantially.”
Rob has also been able to take advantage of the excellent administrative support provided by NIC, which means all his invoicing, payroll and credit control is taken care of, leaving him free to concentrate on running and growing his business.
Business partners Charlotte and Kerry are among NIC’s many success stories who are now enjoying the flexibility running your own commercial cleaning business can bring to your life. With a turnover approaching £2 million a year, the pair have built a profitable business.
Charlotte recalls: “I began to look at commercial cleaning franchises, a sector that stood out for me because there’s no limit to your potential earnings and it’s an essential service.” Kerry adds: “We enjoy running a franchise, especially being your own boss and the flexibility that brings.”
As a management franchise, cleaning industry experience is not required to become an NIC franchisee, as a comprehensive training course is provided. Ongoing support and mentoring is also provided through locally based business development managers, who work with and support franchisees to help secure, develop and grow their businesses throughout the life of their franchise.
In addition to the company’s substantial experience and success, NIC provides new franchisees with a guaranteed minimum gross profit* offer through its ‘Business Builder’ programme.
NIC’s business development team will help secure new contracts and in the first year of your franchise the company will provide you with a guaranteed minimum gross profit from day one.
*Subject to your investment level.
