10 things to know about Jackson Fire & Security

It might be the perfect franchise opportunity for someone like you

1. It’s a management franchise

The Jackson opportunity is a management franchise, whereby the owner manages the operation of the business while relying on their employees to carry out the work required to deliver the service.

2. No previous industry experience required

This franchise opportunity requires no previous industry experience. A sales or managerial background will be of particular advantage to anyone applying to run the franchise, while a candidate with strong interpersonal skills, an appetite for growth and a passion for customer service will thrive.

3. Employ an engineer from day one

You won’t need any technical knowledge to run your business as your engineers and electrical sub-contractors will carry out the skilled work within the business. You will be required to employ a multiskilled fire and security engineer from day one, while recruitment support will be provided.

4. Work from home opportunity

This opportunity allows you to start your business from home. The brand recommends you have a separate office space at home, in addition to a small storage area for stock. The franchisor requires you to register as a private limited company and purchase a virtual address, which provides you with a professional-looking business address.

5. There’s constant demand and repeat revenue

Every organisation operating from premises must install and maintain fire safety equipment – this is a legal requirement. The majority of these organisations also seek to protect their premises with a range of security solutions. All this equipment will need regular servicing providing franchisees will multiple streams of repeat revenue.

6. Comprehensive training package

Franchisees are trained in the management of all aspects of the business. Jackson’s 20-strong head office team is ideally positioned to help you meet any challenge in your new business. The 30-day training course conducted at the brand’s national training centre is designed to help you qualify as an accredited fire and security provider.

7. Bespoke marketing launch pack

A comprehensive lead generation campaign within your chosen territory will help you to secure new contracts from customers who are seeking to find better value and service from a local provider. The launch pack includes email marketing, telemarketing, search engine optimisation, pay-per-click advertising and PR. Marketing support starts during your training session and leads are guaranteed.

8. The fees

The franchise fee is £39,500, plus VAT. This includes a license fee, training fee, stock and equipment, delivery of the liveried and ply-lined vehicle, accreditations and your marketing launch campaign. A nine per cent management fee is taken from your turnover, and an additional two per cent advertising fee is also applied. The brand recommends you have a £40,000 working capital provision to cover the cost of your engineer’s salary and other business expenses during the first few months.

9. Territory structure

Franchise territories are split up using postcode sectors and each territory has access to over 20,000 businesses. This does not include additional public sector and local authority buildings. Territory sizes have been carefully determined to provide each franchise owner with the opportunity of developing a business of at least the same size as the franchisor’s current business.

10. Next step: discovery day

As an initial step without obligation, join the brand for one of its Discovery Days at the offices just outside Chester. This provides you with a friendly, relaxed environment for you to find out about the franchise opportunity and to meet the team.
