The commercial cleaning services industry is vast and full of different business opportunities for entrepreneurs like you to pursue. Yet, finding the right brand to open a floor care franchise can be challenging, given how many options exist on the market. You will likely want to partner with a floor care brand that offers comprehensive services, a proven franchise model, and a strong presence in the market. If these attributes align with what you’re searching for in your next business venture, you should consider franchising with MilliCare Floor & Textile Care.
Over the last 25 years, MilliCare has become known as the most reliable option for commercial property owners in need of total floor care. We’ve built this reputation through our combination of diverse and innovative services, combined with excellent customer care in resolving their cleaning challenges. However, we did not get this far in the industry all by ourselves. MilliCare franchisees have played a critical role in our brand’s progress, thanks to the incredible work they do on a daily basis.
These owner-driven results have encouraged MilliCare to work to improve our franchise opportunity. Those who invest with MilliCare receive thorough training that fully prepares them for life in the commercial cleaning industry. In this blog, we’ll discuss what you should look for in a floor care franchise and how MilliCare checks each of the boxes.
If you are looking to invest in a cleaning business, you should consider several key factors before making your decision. These factors will impact not only the potential success of your new business but also the effectiveness of the support you receive from your franchisor.
The feelings and characteristics clients associate with a commercial cleaning business can limit or expand its growth potential. The brand’s history, brand leaders’ level of industry experience, and the success of existing franchises all contribute to its overall reputation. You should also consider the customer satisfaction ratings and reviews the business receives, as these can provide valuable insights into the quality of the service.
MilliCare enables our franchise owners to deliver high-quality floor and textile care to a wide variety of clients. We also emphasize the importance of responsiveness and efficiency to show our level of commitment to each commercial property we work on.
One of the most significant benefits of franchising is being able to rely on an established brand to help you rather than having to do everything on your own. Support efforts commonly include training programs for franchise owners and their staff, best practice guidance to improve operational performance, marketing, and advertising assistance, and access to established systems and processes. A good franchisor will provide comprehensive training in all business operations, from technical skills to customer service and business management.
At MilliCare, we utilize an innovative franchise training program that fully immerses you in your new life as a franchise owner so that you know what to expect. We also provide additional training opportunities throughout your partnership with us, rather than only offering it before you open for business.
Of course, you must also find a franchise opportunity that fits your budget. Initial costs usually include the franchise fee, ongoing royalties, and any additional startup expenses, such as marketing fees.
It’s also important to evaluate the potential return on investment and the financial performance of existing franchise locations. You should have a clear understanding of the financial commitment required and the potential profitability of the business. You can see a full picture of the financial commitment that investors must make for a franchise by requesting a copy of the brand’s Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
The MilliCare team clearly breaks down each investment cost that our franchise owners can expect to incur while setting up their new business. The total expenses for a new MilliCare franchise typically range from $113,800 to $163,000. For a complete breakdown of our investment costs, visit our website or request a copy of our most recent FDD.
You should research the overall industry and local market(s) you plan to enter to understand the level of competition and the potential customer base. The ideal customer base will have a constant demand for your services and will return to you for future floor and textile care needs - if you can meet their standards. A business that offers services that are in high demand and has a unique value proposition will have a greater chance of retaining these customers.
MilliCare’s presence in the growing floor and textile care industry has helped our individual franchise owners and our brand as a whole. Outsourced floor care is a constant focus for many commercial property managers – which often translates to a reliable stream of recurring revenue for our franchise locations.
With thorough research and due diligence, you can make an informed decision that will lead to a successful and satisfying franchise relationship. The MilliCare team is eager to prove why our franchise opportunity is a good fit for anyone looking to start a floor care business.
