What’s the difference between buying a business and investing in a franchise?

When you buy into a franchise, it doesn’t just help you with all the training, development and business systems.

From day one, the franchise system will help you to lower your costs. Yes, there is a price tag that comes with this, but if you’re investing into a franchise, you’re not just buying a business – you’re investing into part of a business. 

Sparkle Cleaning is a nationwide franchise. We have operators all over the country, who are able to offer you support from day one. 

When we say it’s an investment, we’re talking about assets like our website. Our website alone cost more than the franchise investment cost. If you started your own business, you’d have to fund that yourself, which isn’t necessarily an option from day one; it might take you a few years to build everything up enough. 

Then, on top of that, you’ve got things like graphic design, sales scripts, the checklists that we’ve all taken time to put together for you. With a Sparkle Cleaning franchise, you get access to this straight away. 

If you were to set up your own business, you’d be likely to spend thousands of pounds investing in equipment, and testing what works and what doesn’t work, so you can give the clients the best service possible. You’ll be able to do that almost instantaneously by buying into a Sparkle Cleaning franchise.

As we say, you don’t just buy in – you’re an investor. You’re investing in yourself, in your future, and in your education as well. 

Look at the projections through years one, two and three; you should be able to make your investment back by the end of year one, in which case, you’re then just building things, you’re saving money constantly on your education, and one of the biggest ways you can save is by inventory. Because we buy bulk from so many different people, we’re able to reduce the costs down, so in some cases – our vacuums, for example – you’re getting them 30% cheaper, if not more.

This is why, if you’re looking for fast returns and a higher chance of success, we are big supporters of investing in a franchise, rather than starting a new business. To find out more about what to expect from investing in a Sparkle Cleaning franchise, talk to our team today.
