New year, new start: The benefits of franchising

Ready to make a change this New Year? Why not join a leading UK franchise with ServiceMaster Clean?

Happy New Year from all of us at ServiceMaster Clean! With 2022 here, many will be looking ahead and as a result, you make be thinking about making some changes in your life and career. If this sounds like you, why not consider making your New Year’s resolution to give yourself a fresh start by purchasing a ServiceMaster Clean business?

If you are on the fence and are unsure about making a big change, that is understandable – it’s a big decision to make. Ultimately, the choice lies with you, but it can still be worth looking into the many advantages that franchising provides. So, we’ve put together a list of questions that you might have about franchising, as well as the benefits it can provide:

What is franchising?

First things first, what even is franchising? Put simply, franchising is an alternative route into business that provides business owners – also known as franchisees – with an already tried and tested business model that has been proven successful.

OK, so why ServiceMaster?

ServiceMaster Clean is a 62-year-old global franchise that operates across three different enterprises across a network of over 400 franchises nationwide, and has been acknowledged as one of the top 25 franchises in the UK in the 2022 BFA (British Franchise Association) Elite Franchise Top 100 ranking.

With an established presence in the UK, ServiceMaster Clean is a recognised, well-known, and trusted brand chosen by residential and commercial customers alike, with franchises turning over in excess of around £50 million across the ServiceMaster network in 2021. ServiceMaster Clean’s three different franchise models ensure that aspiring franchisees have multiple profitable opportunities to choose from, including; Office cleaning; commercial carpet, hard floor; residential carpet and upholstery cleaning.

Investing in a trusted franchise like ServiceMaster provides you with a wide reaching network and connects you to our franchise support centre, who are able to provide support and advice, training, marketing materials, and all of the systems and processes that you might need.

How is franchising better than starting my own business?

We understand that one of the main draws of owning your own business is, well, having your own business. Though our franchisees are provided support and a business model, they are still responsible for their own business and are given plenty of autonomy within their own territory. As well as this, starting your own business will be challenging no matter which way you slice it. However, with a franchise, you have the support of a larger body behind you. As a result, a business that you have started on your own has a statistically proven higher chance of failure than a franchise business.

A great franchise like ServiceMaster Clean gives you a helping hand when and where you need it, and allows you to build on a previously proven business formula. All of those things that you ‘try to see if they work’ in the early stages of starting a business have already been done by the franchisor, so you save a lot of time and money and reduce your investment risk. With a franchise, you are ultimately in charge of your own operation, but you don’t need to spend time trying to reinvent the wheel.

But don’t just take our word for it…

The British Franchise Association believes that,

“Franchising remains one of the most successful forms of starting your own business, with extremely high success rates and much more security than starting your own without the proven system, support and brand.”

You can also receive external financial support

Many leading banks in the UK recognise franchising as the safest route into business and as a result may be willing to lend you up to 70% finance towards your investment.

All in all, franchising is about support. It can be reassuring to know that there is an established and experienced governing body behind you as you take that first step into starting a new business. With ServiceMaster Clean and our main body ServiceMaster Ltd., you will be set with a recipe for success.

Where can I learn more?

If this has helped you learn more about franchising and you now think that you might want to delve into starting a business of your own with ServiceMaster Clean, you can find more about our four different business models here.

Or, if this has given you an interest in franchising, but you are unsure if ServiceMaster Clean would right for you, why not check out franchise opportunities with the other brands within the ServiceMaster Ltd. family of brands?
