Four questions to ask when buying a franchise

Before anyone buys into a Sparkle Cleaning franchise, we always ask them to ask themselves a few honest questions…

What are my strengths and weaknesses?

For this to be effective, you’ll have to be really honest – it’s no good lying to yourself! 

If you are looking to buy into a Sparkle Cleaning franchise, we always emphasise that it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme; you will be running a business.

The only difference between running a Sparkle Cleaning franchise and setting up your own company is that we give you all of the systems and procedures ready-made, to put you in the best position possible for success.

Within the franchise industry there is a 95% success rate, because we have been able to work out all of the kinks – however, it does still take work, so it’s important to be prepared to put effort into your franchise.

What am I passionate about?

We understand that it’s hard to be passionate about cleaning… although we are! 

But we live and breathe our core values. At every stage of the discovery process, we will refer to the Sparkle Cleaning core values – family comes first, keep it simple, add value, make money and have fun.

This is because we are looking for people who share these values and are passionate about putting their family first, keeping it simple, adding value, making money and having fun!

And don’t worry, we can definitely get you passionate about cleaning; our enthusiasm is contagious!

How much can I afford to invest?

It’s important to make sure that you don’t put yourself in debt. At Sparkle Cleaning, we’ll look at your finances and investment before you begin, and adjust the budgets accordingly. 

Be really honest with yourself with looking at your affordability. While most franchises look to make your original investment back in the first 12 months, it’s important to plan for the worst case scenario. How much could you afford to lose if it takes a little more time to get up and running?

If you’re struggling to get the initial investment together, Sparkle Cleaning has links to financial support, so we can help you every step of the way.

How much income do I need to support my lifestyle?

This is something that we can help you with. At our first planning session, we’ll look at the lifestyle you have and the lifestyle you want

We can then work backwards to help you set the budgets and targets for your next 90 days, 6 months and 12 months, looking at how many hours you need to have on your books, how many staff that would require etc.
