Sanondaf

With this proven franchise, you can start your own disinfection and decontamination company.

Sanondaf opened for business in 15 franchise areas in the UK in its first year of operation and is seeing demand for its services growing daily. The company has developed a special touch-less disinfection system that kills 99.99 per cent of viruses, bacteria and germs safely, without the smell or health hazards associated with traditional cleaning disinfectants.

The process is harmless to humans, animals and plants, so can be deployed in any environment where infection is a threat. Sanondaf franchisees are currently working with clients in hospitals, nurseries, care homes, offices, gyms, kitchens, schools and universities - in fact, anywhere where viruses and bacteria are likely to be present.

New applications for the service are being discovered every day, including in veterinary surgeries, tattoo parlours and even cruise ships.

The franchise can be operated from home or an office and candidates will be required to lease a suitable vehicle for the business. Franchise partners will also need adequate working capital to fund the early stages of the business.

Stuart White of Touch Less Hygiene UK, Sanondaf’s master franchisee for the UK, says: “Sanondaf can be a simple owner operated business or a scalable management franchise employing technicians across multiple or regional territories.

“It can also provide services to complementary businesses such as domestic and commercial cleaning or facilities management companies, allowing a new service to be introduced to their clients.”

Dublcheck

Founded in 1993 by Carol Stewart-Gill, Dublcheck is an established name in the commercial cleaning sector.

Edinburgh franchisee Jo Bennett says: “All the employees at Dublcheck’s head office are so friendly and supportive - they always make sure that if you call with a problem, it’s sorted out as soon as possible.”

Jo has around 30 staff working for her and a monthly turnover of £13,000. Having spent years working in operations and change management in the financial sector, she knew she possessed the skills needed to be her own boss.

However, she says she benefited from Dublcheck’s mentor support programme, which helped her grow her business in the early years. The initiative means franchisees can contact any existing franchisees in the network to ask questions about how their businesses work. People starting out or moving up in the business can be allocated an experienced franchisee to act as a guide in their progression.

Carol, now Dublcheck’s chairman, says: “Central to Dublcheck’s 23-year success story is its dedication to ensuring franchise owners have all the tools and knowledge they need to uphold the values of the Dublcheck brand, which has resulted in a 90 per cent client retention rate.

“With our experience and track record, we can safely say that if you put in the effort and follow the system, the rewards with Dublcheck are there. We guarantee the contract value for the first year, so if you lose a contract for any reason other than non-performance Dublcheck will replace it free of charge.

“With Dublcheck you can earn as little or as much as you want, as there is no upper limit on the number of contracts you can operate.”

 

What you need to know

Investment level:

from £9,950 to £190,000.

What you get:

full training; ongoing support and mentoring; marketing assistance; invoicing and cash collection; branded uniforms; stationery.
