Betterclean Services Franchise Testimonials
Below is a selection of testimonials from people that operate the Betterclean Services Franchise or have used the Betterclean Services business services in the past.
Dealing with Dan and Mike has been a pleasure, I find them both open minded and business oriented and are equally as eager to grow the Betterclean brand and business in the region.
Having looked at other cleaning franchises, I chose Betterclean, as their business model and structure offered me the most flexibility in terms of scale. This allows me to determine the pace at which I develop my business, how fast and how large I want my business to grow. The support in getting startup clients also allows me to have a jumpstart while simultaneously developing and building my clientele. Existing franchisees shared good experiences, this boosted my confidence to invest in Betterclean.
After researching a number of big name franchises in various sectors, I stumbled upon Betterclean Services in my search. I was looking for something that was scalable and also flexible in the operational structure. One of the appealing aspects was that the franchise was a proven model that could be delivered anywhere in the UK. I wanted the expertise to get off to a flying start and Betterclean Services fit the bill.
I became a Betterclean franchisee in November 2016, when I bought the Exeter and Taunton territory as a going concern. Over the past 2 years, I have doubled the revenue and far exceeded the growth and income targets I had set myself. Betterclean provides franchisees with robust operating systems and procedures, that have allowed me to focus my energies on building a staff team that I am proud of, on developing strong client relationships, and on delivering a service that differentiates Betterclean from other cleaning providers. The support I have received from Head Office has been invaluable, in terms of advice on operational delivery, HR matters and business development, all of which have facilitated steady business growth. That, combined with a friendly network of fellow franchisees, has meant that I have never felt alone when encountering challenges along the way. Being able to work from home has given me personal flexibility, and kept my operating costs low while the business grows. In addition, the online management system, BLISS, enables me to run my business on-the-go, and means that I have a healthy work-life balance, unlike previous businesses I have run. The low management service fee has been critical in contributing to a sustainable profit margin in a very competitive industry. Finally, I would say that the Betterclean model provides a strong operational framework on which franchisees can build their business in line with their own strengths, interests and personal goals.
I strongly believe we made the right decision, choosing the Betterclean services franchise to start our commercial cleaning business. In hindsight, I would have created more scenarios when structuring the business plan, as the margins have been tighter than I expected. Make sure you do your due diligence thoroughly and seek independent advice. On comparing the market, Betterclean Services was the best option for us.
When my husband and I met Dan and Mike we felt really comfortable with them, and not only liked them but felt their business model made total sense. II was looking for an opportunity in a different business sector and realised franchising was a quick way to start, effectively buying the sector expertise of the franchise owner.
“Having taken over a Betterclean franchise 10 days before the country went into the first COVID lockdown, you can imagine the challenges I was facing. I’m delighted to say that Dan, Mike, Abbie and the team were great in supporting us through those critical first few weeks and months, and they showed the sort of flexibility you’d hope for when priorities were changing on a rapid basis. Above that the fact they were delivering the required assets in terms of method statements, changes to products, and guidance for customers accelerated our ability to adapt and respond to the challenges our own customers were facing. Since then I’m pleased to the say that they’ve struck the perfect balance between supporting and engaging, and giving the freedom and independence to get on and deliver. Prior to the actual takeover I think it’s fair to say that the same balance was achieved in supporting the take on and start up.”
