Beware Franchise High-Pressure Sales

When looking at a franchise it’s important to be aware of a high sales pitch. The high-pressure Sales pitch can come in all shapes and sizes a few to be aware of are the following.

Being Interrogated

When you get a chance to sit down the sales representative from the Franchise company they’ll be asking lots of questions this is for their benefit as well as yours however if they are trying to pressure you into buying the franchise then this could come across as an interrogation, this could be because the salesperson is inexperienced but this can give you an insight to the franchise.

The sales meeting should be a two-way conversation which is more like an interview, at this stage, it’s important for the franchise salesman to make sure that you share the same values as the franchise.

For example, if we are interviewing someone for a Sparkle Cleaning Franchise then its important that they share our core values. This is something we look for in all of our cleaning teams and our franchisees. If we don’t all share the same values then we aren’t necessarily moving forward in the same direction.

Get Rich Quick Scheme

Unfortunately, franchises can get a bad name from rich quick schemes. Almost any company can launch a franchise, in fact, there are over 900 franchise companies in the Uk and that figure gets bigger every year, some promising that you can be making millions in your first year with a 20% profit margin, it’s not impossible but it’s rare. 

When looking for a franchise ask about accreditations and past success. When you enquire about a Sparkle Cleaning Franchise we will automatically put you in touch with a franchisee, ideally one that’s local to you so you can meet with them and pick their brains. 

You can also rest assured that a Sparkle Cleaning Franchise is accredited to the British Franchise Association and therefore we have been checked and audited to make sure that we have a proven track record and what we tell you you can achieve has been proven.


Discounts generally destroy sales in a franchise. A Franchise system has been built for the love of the company and therefore if the company is selling their franchise at a heavy discount alarm signals should be going off.

Always ask the question of why they are applying the discount and trust your gut if its a genuine reason. For example, during COVID 19 you were able to get a Sparkle Cleaning Franchise on delayed terms this was due to Sparkle Cleaning living their values to put family first and adding value. We want everyone who works with us to feel like family and get value in everything they do.

By offering the discount Sparkle Cleaning was able to start more franchises and generate jobs and income for the local territories meaning that they were able to add value to the local areas.
