The Franchise Council meets regularly to evaluate, recommend and potentially implement new initiatives in the areas of products, marketing, management, safety, customer service and franchise support.
In an established franchise network like ServiceMaster Restore, there’s always another franchise owner available at the end of a phone or via email to call on for help and advice.
Based upon the simple philosophy, ‘If it’s good for you – it’s good for us’, the Franchise Council provides individual owners with a voice to influence the direction and priorities of ServiceMaster Restore.

The central marketing team is available for practical advice and makes a number of central initiatives available to business owners, with active encouragement and incentives to get on board. Central marketing initiatives are routinely implemented with regular programmes that business owners can opt into throughout the year. A customised six-month marketing plan is made available to all business owners with hints and tips throughout the year on recommended marketing activities.
We retain a central print management agency to maintain brand consistency with online access for easy ordering of brochures, leaflets and a host of other marketing material. We also make digital expertise available by way of online advertising and each franchisee has their own dedicated area on the central website that they can personalise and make their own. If you’re not a digital expert, that’s what the central marketing team is for and is one of the key benefits of buying a franchise business as opposed to setting up in business on your own.
