“When I discovered The Kleaning Company, I was looking for a complementary franchise to develop and lead to profitability,” says Etienne Du Toit
For eight years from 2009 to 2017, Etienne Du Toit was a franchisee with a well-known logistics company where he successfully grew the business from an initial 11 delivery routes, in 2009, to 43 delivery routes, in 2017.
Etienne said: “I consider myself to be an experienced and highly effective managing director-franchisee with a proven record of invigorating and developing my businesses in the transport and logistics sector. I have developed a deep knowledge of business development, restructuring businesses to address pinch points whilst ensuring efficient operations, to deliver improved customer experiences, and drive revenues and growth.
“I like to think that I am a confident and inspiring leader, who quickly gains trust and earns respect, to transform cultures and motivate others to achieve outstanding performance. I am skilled in managing complex business and technical integration projects, delivering on time and budget, and to specification.
“When I discovered The Kleaning Company, I was looking for a complementary franchise to develop and lead to profitability.”
Why did he choose The Kleaning Company franchise over an employed career? “Having run a successful franchise business before an employed career was the last thing on my mind. When I found The Kleaning Company I felt that the experience I have gained in operational management, business development, strategic thinking, project and financial management would be a ‘perfect fit’ for this franchise model,” added Etienne.
