If you’re weighing your options between franchise brands, a critical factor to consider when starting a commercial cleaning business is the initial investment and costs required. Choosing a brand that falls within your price range is essential, and so is partnering with a team that gives you the most value for your investment.
Image One’s costs cover a lot of the necessary components for starting a commercial cleaning business. An aspect of the investment that is considered an industry standard is the franchise fee, which gives you access to all of the proprietary information that makes our brand great. All of the details may depend on your unique situation, but today, we want to look at the franchise fee, what you get in return, and, some of the discounted initiatives we offer.
How Much Do I Pay? What Do I Get?
When starting a commercial cleaning business with Image One, the franchise fee depends completely on the number of territories you choose to purchase, but for a single unit, you can expect an initial $59,900 payment. The payment provides access to the Image One brand name and our established business model. It also includes our Intelliclean software, making it much easier for our franchisees to manage sales and operational tasks.
Most importantly, what you save from fulfilling our franchise fee is the time that it takes to establish all of these facets of your business by yourself. Typically, it could take an independent business owner multiple years to do so on their own, with an incredibly high risk for failure. By fulfilling the Image One initial costs, you’re not just investing in yourself, but you’re also starting a commercial cleaning business smarter.
Am I Eligible for a Reduced Franchise Fee?
We want to find any way possible to ease your financial burden so that we can help make your business ownership dreams a reality. Image One offers discounted franchise fees to eligible prospects who qualify under one of the following categories.
Conversion: If you’re looking to transition your existing commercial cleaning business to an Image One franchise, one of our incentives includes a reduced franchise fee. The discount is reduced by an amount equal to 1.5 times the monthly billing of your existing customers.
Active or Retired First Responders/Military: As a member of the International Franchise Association, Image One participates in the VetFran program. Our participation allows us to offer an incentive program to veterans of the U.S Armed Forces who meet all of the requirements to qualify. We are extending this opportunity to active and retired first responders as well, which includes EMTs, firefighters, and police officers.
