We wanted to share the benefits of being a national brand to partner up with, with the opportunity to invest at a local level. A franchise truly does help to give back to your community.

Our brands open doors

ServiceMaster Restore is not only established nationally, but globally too. Clients are much more likely to choose a service from a name that they recognise, over a name that is unfamiliar.

Local business, local employees

Employees may be more inclined to work for you knowing that the business is locally owned, but is backed by a global brand, such as ServiceMaster Restore. Often employees worry that their employer may be ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ and see comfort in a well-recognised brand like us, with some legacy.

It’s always good to employ locally too to give back to the local community.

Here today, here tomorrow

Not all local businesses cut the mustard. According to the British Franchise Association, failure rates are as high as 91 percent for non-franchised small businesses in the 1st year of trading. A proven business model, established brand and support from a world-renowned franchisor can help you to be here today and here tomorrow, so that your community can get used to seeing you!

Adding to your community

Your local community can rest assured that the new addition to the community (your ServiceMaster Restore franchise) will be fully supported by a globally known franchisor.

A franchise can give you a platform to help you to invest in your local community, as well as yourself, with the support of a nationally known brand behind you.

In our case, we are a global brand, offering a proven business model, to give you the recipe of success for starting a disaster restoration business locally. Call 0116 275 9005 to start your journey today.

Planning and setting goals are very much part of your whole journey with ServiceMaster Restore franchise. We encourage and work with you to put plans in place and implement them, so that you can achieve your goals in business.

Here’s what you need to know;

Business planning

Before joining the franchise, you will be asked to create a business plan, and within that, you will need to share your goals for the business over its first few years and up to the end of the franchise agreement (5 years).

A business plan is also an element of what is required when applying for business finance, so do remember to make sure that it is as clear to follow for someone else as it is for you.

Goal setting

Goals in business could be related to anything, such as, a number of customers, revenue milestone or growth of the business by a certain amount, by a certain date.

When setting goals, it is useful to use the popular acronym ‘SMART’. Possibly the most common version that is used is, S for specific, M for measurable, A for achievable, R for relevant and T for time-bound.

Motivation

It is important to remember that not everyone can be as motivated as you are because after all, it is your business.

Having a goal to work towards creates motivation not only for yourself, but for your team members too. A communal (or company) goal can help to motivate everyone, as the whole team contribute towards it, especially if there is a reward at the end of the tunnel.

Measure of success

Without setting goals in the first place, you would find it difficult to measure success. Achieving a goal is a strong measurement of success and often delivers a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction, both of which are extremely healthy in business.

A discovery day is an important part of the journey that you will find yourself on, when looking to partner up with a franchise. Traditionally, you would be invited to the central office, to meet with the key members of the team who would support you in your new venture.

However, due to the unprecedented situation that COVID-19 has brought upon us, we have had to look closely at how we can ensure that we don’t remove discovery days from the process entirely, but make them work just as well remotely, without the need for a physical visit

We are pleased to be able to offer virtual discovery sessions to those who are interested in finding more about our brand. Here’s how they benefit everyone involved:

No travel

A virtual discovery session removes the need to travel to see us. So, no time spent in the car or on public transport and no costs involved in coming to see us.

Reduced commitment

Travelling hundreds of miles to see us is understandably a large commitment, especially if you are not totally sold on the idea. By removing the miles between us, we feel that it’s much less of a commitment to join and decide whether the opportunity is for you or not. Nothing lost, but potentially a whole lot gained!

Added flexibility

From our point of view, because they take less time (we don’t make them as long because virtual boredom is a thing!), we can fit more in and thus hold them more often, so that more individuals have an opportunity to join.

More participants

Because of the reduced commitment, no need to travel and added flexibility, our virtual discovery sessions do get a really good turnout (although numbers are limited). It is always beneficial to hear from others about what they are looking for in a franchise and to listen to their questions being answered, as you may never have thought of asking them yourself!
