If you were to ask any of our franchise owners what to expect, it would be fair to say they’d tell you to ‘expect the unexpected’. That’s because most disasters can’t be preempted and instead, our Restore businesses respond to emergency disasters.

So you’re wondering if this sounds like the right opportunity for you?

Here’s a very brief description of what a day in the life of Restore could look like:

06:15am – A call from a distressed customer having experienced an escape of water

06:45am – Jump in the van with appropriate equipment to attend site

07:05am – Arrive onsite and write report detailing incident and remedial action required

07:30am – Customer having signed off works, escape of water detected, leak repaired, full damage assessed and water extraction to begin

08:30am – Travel to existing job to check on progress

09:30am – Complete checks, feedback to customer on progress of remedial works

10:30am – Coffee!

11:00am – Head out to second existing job of the day to check on progress

12:00 noon – Good progress made, fed back to customer

13:00pm – Lunch!

13:30pm – Head to third existing job of the day to check on progress

14:15pm – Whilst on third job, an emergency call comes in for another escape of water

15:05pm – Arrive at emergency job. Report and plan documented, remedial works signed off by the customer, remedial works to begin

16:00pm – Back to the warehouse to drop off unused kits, dispose of waste correctly and make preparations for the next call out!

As no two days are the same in a Restore business, this could may well be a typical day out of 7! There’s very little time to get bored, no change of ground hog day and certainly many rewards to be reaped.

The early mornings, late nights and dirty work will all be worth it when you see how you have helped customers. You have the opportunity to build up your business in the local area to be well known and trusted in a customers hour of need. All contributing to your career and financial goals.

During the pandemic, entrepreneurs opened up businesses more than twice the rate than pre-pandemic. But why and how?

Government financial help

Firstly, the government recognised that there would need to be support available to help individuals to survive financially throuought the pandemic. This is because some sectors were forced to close and would need financial help to survive or to invest in something new. Many individuals knew the pandemic wouldn’t go away overnight, so chose to build new businesses in new sectors to give them the financial stability they needed throughout uncertain times. This was reflected in franchise sign ups.


Whilst businesses were closed and individuals were left with very little to do on a daily basis, some individuals turned to learning new skills, taking on new qualifications to better their knowledge for when the world reopened. Online training became popular and with franchise academies also being held online, it made sense to turn new learnings in to new opportunities by the way of a new franchise.

Improved remote technology 

This helped individuals to still be connected to the world. Remote technology gave everyone hope and a feeling of normality. Particularly when it came to business. Connectivity meant that entrepreneurs were able to discover more about franchise businesses, join virtual training academies and receive support when they were live, all through remote technology. It also meant that time could be saved, as well as travel expenses.

Wake up call 

The pandemic proved to be a wake up call for many who were desperate to find something new, but needed the ‘push’ to do so. As such, many entrepreneurs chose to take the plunge and start up or start over after a real shock from the effects of the pandemic.

2020 saw our best year at ServiceMaster Brands for welcoming new franchise partners. 2021, looks to be more of the same. 

If you are looking to start up, or start over, we’d love to hear from you. Contact our franchise sales team on 0116 275 9005 or email

If you have been research different franchise opportunities, you may hear the phrase ‘starter package’ quite regularly. A starter package is in effect, items that you will find beneficial when you start your business that are included either within the franchise fee or for a set additional fee.

What might you expect?

  • Products to undertake the services offered by your business
  • Equipment as above
  • Business stationery such as letterheads and business cards
  • Uniforms, for yourself or employees within your business
  • Marketing literature such as flyers and posters
  • Promotional items including mugs, pens and rulers
  • Marketing launch which might include paid marketing activities
  • Membership with relevant trade bodies

Having a starter pack is a true benefit when joining a franchise. It helps you to start off with the right credentials to ensure that you have the best start. You don’t need to source much of the above for yourself and you can concentrate your first few weeks, often months in to your business, not sourcing any of the above.

Our starter package is included within our franchise fee to give new franchise owners the ease and speed required to start a business from scratch.

Not all starter packages are equal though, so do be mindful of this when you are comparing franchise opportunities like for like.

If you’d like to discuss what is included, you can chat with our franchise sales team on 0116 275 9005 or at for the latest starter pack information

ServiceMaster Restore are one of six brands owned by ServiceMaster. Being one of six brands as part of a world-renowned franchise is beneficial for many reasons and one being that we’re able to offer centralised support to all of our brands. But why is this a good thing?

  • Greater learnings – Having the six brands, all supported centrally allows us to learn faster and utilise our learnings to make swift improvements. This is essential in learning about the brands and identifying trends with customers, the market and the wider business environment
  • High quality support – Being one large support system, we are truly able to ensure it is of the highest quality as we have the greatest control over it. Our organisational structure ensures that all departments are efficient in providing the best support to our franchisees and their customers
  • Increased focus – Having inter-departments inside a central support system allows us to maintain high levels of focus. This is because every department has clear objectives and a responsibility for the results
  • Reduced costs – Having a centralised support system allows us to keep our franchise fees lower than if we had support systems in place for all six brands. Instead we’re able to share effectively, keeping costs low and results high
  • Improved communication – As we’re all in the same building (or contact system when working from home), we’re able to communicate more effectively inter-brand, to take, relay and respond to communication quickly and effectively

We offer centralised support in call handling,  Human Resources, information technology, marketing, operations and purchasing. Our expertise are shared with you.
