When I left my city job I worked as a consultant, helping small companies to implement a growth strategy based on franchising. I spent 18 months in the franchising industry so had a decent understanding of what to consider when looking to invest in a franchise.
I wanted a recession proof, growth industry with repeat income and a company that had a good track record of at least 4 years profitable trading. I considered a few markets that appeared to fit the bill and determined that domestic cleaning was the market to be in. I then looked at all the different cleaning franchises available, I wanted something that could be run from home, did not require a huge initial outlay and could be quickly scaled.
Nationwide Cleaners franchise ticks all the boxes AND comes with a money back guarantee, something I have not seen offered by any other franchise. After speaking to Peter I was ready to invest. I also spoke to some of the other franchisees and it was very clear that the system was easy to understand and follow and the level of success was determined by the level of commitment each franchisee applied to their business.
I received one-on-one training with Peter and spent a day with Alex, the longest serving franchisee. Both are extremely helpful with plenty of good advice, as are the other franchisees I spoke to. I set out my goals for the first year of operating my Nationwide Cleaners franchise and am delighted that I achieved my target after just 9 months of operating. My only regret is that I did not find Nationwide Cleaners 3 years ago.
