Three Common Questions About an Image One Cleaning Franchise Business Opportunity
At Image One, we know potential investors may have questions about our brand and our cleaning franchise business opportunity — and that’s good! Smart investors do their homework before making a commitment, and we’re dedicated to making sure all questions get answered quickly and transparently. Our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) is a great place to start your research, and we make ours available to any serious potential franchisee who’s interested in becoming part of the thriving commercial cleaning industry.
Here, however, we’ll look at three common questions we get about the Image One opportunity.
Why partner with a franchisor? Why not just start from scratch?
This is a common question and a good one. After all, there are basically two ways to open a small business: you can start from scratch and take on all the work yourself, or you can partner with a franchisor like Image One. Both ways have their merits, but a partnership with Image One gets you benefits you simply can’t get going it alone.
For one thing, our cleaning franchise business opportunity gets you comprehensive pre-opening training that’ll get you up to speed on our industry and everything you’ll need to know to run your franchise efficiently. That means you’ll need no prior experience in janitorial services to make the most of our market. You’ll also have immediate access to our time-tested systems and procedures that take a lot of the guesswork out of running your franchise.
The franchise model has been around for a long time, and when you compare it to independent ownership, it allows for:
- More rapid opening
- Quicker growth
- Faster hiring
- A nimbler response to economic changes
- More stable performance
Of course, there are many janitorial franchise brands to choose from, so making the most of the franchise model requires you to partner with a leader in the commercial cleaning industry. Image One is that, and our industry has never been hotter!
Do I need industry experience?
You sure don’t! As we just discussed, our comprehensive training and support, coupled with our proprietary business model, make prior experience unnecessary. Our unique training program combines classroom, on-the-job, and on-site learning for a truly comprehensive approach to prepare you for business. After you’ve opened your franchise, you can rely on our support team 24/7 to answer questions, give advice, and address concerns. In addition, you can count on our operations manual that details business procedures and cleaning techniques, purchasing assistance for products to get the job done right, and marketing tools to help you get the word out and grow your business, among many other resources!
How do I become a franchisee?
Taking advantage of our cleaning franchise business opportunity is a straightforward and transparent process that involves several steps to help us get to know you better, and to help you understand the value of our offering. You’ll start by filling out a simple form, after which you’ll receive a phone call from one of our franchise team members who’ll tell you all about our brand and culture and answer any initial questions you might have. From there, you’ll receive a copy of our FDD to read, and later you’ll meet with us during a Discover Day for a deeper one-on-one dive into our brand. All in all, it’s a process that’s friendly, informative, and meant to welcome you to the Image One family ready to hit the ground running!
