The Daniel Moquet franchise package includes the cost of all training and continued support provided for franchisees by the brand.

You do not need to have any previous experience in landscaping, design or construction to start a franchise with Daniet Moquet, as these skills will be provided with the training given with each franchise package. You should, however, have a strong interest in outdoor spaces and design overall, as a passion for these subjects will be essential to succeed in the industry.
Potential franchisees should be able to demonstrate strong management and team leadership skills as the franchise will depend upon being able to plan projects, delegate tasks to team members and oversee both individual projects, and the progress of the company as a whole.
Prior management experience in another role, as well as good interpersonal communication ability, will stand you in good stead as a candidate.
Franchise owners are given extensive support and assistance throughout the process of establishing their business, from the pre-launch phase, and through the general running of the franchise afterwards.
Prior to starting the franchise process, the team at Daniel Moquet will help you draft the financial package, to understand all the numbers involved. They can also help develop a business plan to support any funding applications, too.
Once the franchise agreement commences, you will be invited to spend 20 days on site for a pre-training programme, where you will be able to shadow existing franchisees in France. This is an ideal way of getting insight into the business, its operational procedures, and customer relationships. Franchise owners are then led through a six-week programme of training, which includes technical skills, hands-on practice, management and organisation, and sales and marketing modules.
Following training, franchise owners are also given dedicated time in their own chosen territories with a support team, to help in understanding how to maximise lead generation most effectively. A month prior to the launch of your new business, you will also be given facilitator backing, to help get the business started most effectively.
Once the business is launched, you will be provided with branded marketing collateral, including brochures and flyers, as well as provided with an SEO-optimised custom website. You will also have access to the Daniel Moquet franchise intranet, with extensive support information for continued business development, as well as being given the brand’s own mobile application, which allows franchisees to effectively demonstrate augmented reality versions of projects for clients.
Daniel Moquet provides a wide range of marketing support to help its franchisees network and thrive, with regular conventions held through the year, and a review and conciliation committee to help assess the overall business. Franchise owners also receive support from team consultants twice a year to provide advice on how you can develop and improve your business, as well as access to two days’ worth of annual training each year.
