Starting and running your own business can be one of the most exhilarating things to do. If you’re wondering how to start a franchise, you’re in the right spot! Starting a franchise is one of the most rewarding things that a person can do. It allows you to be in charge, make your own decisions, and is an opportunity that a traditional job will never match. You can create your own schedule, carve your own path, and develop financial freedom.
Of course, there is also a lot of hard work involved in starting your own business. Although, as long as you are willing to put in the work, it will pay off like you have never imagined. The first choice in starting a business is finding out which type of business model will work best.
Differences in Starting a Franchise and Starting From Scratch
If you already have a skill that you are experienced in, then the first step is to question whether there is a demand for that service. A good way to do this is to look into what companies and industries have established franchise opportunities. There is an important distinction to be made here, as the idea is to look for actual and scalable franchise opportunities. Some opportunities may play the role of looking like starting your own business, but it actually ends up being just another cleaning job. You want to look for franchise opportunities that have an established history and record like we here at Eagles Cleaning Systems do.
Some people may view franchises as glorified employees, but this is far from the truth. We provide the methods and system, but you run the business. Running your business under our name simply gives you a better running start to owning your own business.
How to Start an Eagles Cleaning Commercial Cleaning Business
1. Contact Us
If you are interested in starting a franchise under the Eagles Cleaning Systems name, then the beginning is as simple as getting in touch with us. You can give our home office a call or fill out the form online and give us a good way and time to contact you.
2. Schedule a Meeting
The next step in starting a franchise with us is to receive a full briefing about what it entails. Are you wondering, “How much does it cost to start a franchise?” Our team has all the information you need to know. We will schedule a meeting with you when it is convenient and give you the full rundown of the process.
Whatever Eagles Cleaning staff member meets with you will present you with our Franchise Disclosure Document. You legally cannot agree to this document the same day it is given to you. By law, most states require that you have to wait 14 days before signing the agreement with us. In other words, there is plenty of time to ponder the opportunity and decide if it is something that you want to do.
3. Register Your New Business
Before you will be able to purchase a franchise with us, you must first register as a new business with your state. You need to register as either a corporation or a partnership. This is a step that can be done by yourself or with the help of a legal professional.
4. Sign the Franchise Disclosure Agreement
Once you have your business registered and 14 days have passed, you will be able to sign the document that we presented to you. At that point, congratulations! You have just become our newest franchisee and can attend our training program to learn the tools and methods of the trade.
5. Our Training Program
To make the whole process even easier, we offer a detailed training program. This program is designed to lay out our cleaning system in a straightforward and easy-to-understand way. It will show you the right way to clean various types of rooms and spaces, how to use the various tools, equipment, methods, and cleaning products that we use. Even better, we provide additional training on customer service, inspecting after cleanings, how to properly run your new business, and more. The goal of our training program is purely to set you up for success.
6. Obtaining Supplies and Tools
There will generally be some tools and supplies before you are ready to receive cleaning accounts, but we will help you. We can recommend great suppliers to obtain everything you will need to get started. And even after that, we will help you find your first accounts so that you can get started as fast as possible. You can consult your franchise documents to find out the minimum supplies you will need.
7. Get Going!
After you have obtained your initial items and have completed training, then it is time to get started in your new business. At this point, you will be able to fully open and begin providing cleaning services to accounts. As mentioned above, we can help you find your initial accounts, but you will also be able to market and find new accounts, as long as you stick to the franchise agreement terms.
