Drastically Improving Clients Lives through Excellent Customer Service
After overcoming two redundancies during the recession, Sarah decided to take matters into her own hands. In 2012 she started Bright & Beautiful Aylesbury & the Chilterns and has in turn created a business that is making a substantial difference within her community.
Over the course of her career, Sarah has picked up some valuable skills to take into business. She has received management training within large retail companies, accounts and payroll experience working within a printing company and enjoyed learning the ins and outs of HR, marketing and legal compliance whilst working as a company secretary. Now Sarah is utilising a career in business to grow a successful Bright & Beautiful franchise.
“I started my business in March 2012” Sarah began “I had previously been made redundant twice in my career, but always wanted to run my own business. I had mooted the idea of this type of business several years prior to finding Bright & Beautiful and knew it was a much-needed service but was unable to give up a full time, well-paying job. Just as I was in the throes of being made redundant my Grandmother died and left me an inheritance. It was a now or never moment, I had the funds, found Bright & Beautiful online and have never looked back.”
Sarah has now positioned her business for growth taking her business out of her home and into a dedicated office. In addition to this, Sarah has created senior roles within her growing team “Our manager has reduced her work load so that she can focus on the teams & quality control. We have also appointed a Senior Team Leader to provide backup for the Operations Manager.” Sarah’s business emphasises scalability of the Bright & Beautiful franchise model, with each franchise owner encouraged to create a structured business capable of consistent growth.
Life as a business owner has proved a rewarding challenge for Sarah she explained “You will have good and bad days, have a back-up solution if you can for everything. You will work like you have never worked before initially, but this is all for you not anybody else. Be decisive, you employees look to you to be a strong leader but always take their opinions on board.”
Going Above and Beyond
Sarah and her team have become a trusted partner of the local area council by providing essential cleaning services to vulnerable patients. They currently look after several people with conditions such as schizophrenia, Asperger’s Syndrome, autism, dementia and hoarding tendencies.
The services that Sarah and her team deliver include laundry, ironing, deep cleaning and much more. The team aligns their work with the schedules of nursing and mental health teams, who are providing a unique package of ongoing care, psychological monitoring, safety assessment and counselling during their weekly or fortnightly visits to their clients.
Sarah’s team’s engagement with their customers is both transforming their lives and also enabling Sarah to recruit and train more like-minded housekeepers to meet the ever-growing demand from the council.
Toni’s Sales & Marketing background provided her with a strong skillset to build a successful franchise!
To some, the name Toni Hibbert may spark thoughts of a famous Everton footballer, however in a continued theme of success our Toni Hibbert is the proactive owner of Bright & Beautiful Derby. Starting a business was a natural progression for Toni, having enjoyed a successful career in the Health and Natural Products Industry: “I have been a Sales Director for a national wholesaler of Health Foods and Natural Products and also a Marketing Manager for a vitamin manufacturer. My roles have all been largely sales and marketing related with a passion for natural and ethical products. I studied business and always thought that I would run my own business. I seem to have spent a lot of my time running other peoples!”
Like many ambitious business people, Toni didn’t lack the drive but more the idea and business model, so she turned to franchising: “I had always had the idea of a franchise in the back of my mind, but the health food industry had me hooked. It was when I got back to work after having my daughters, I realised that the business felt different. I knew then, that I wanted to be self-employed and started looking for opportunities. Once I found Bright & Beautiful, I stopped looking!”
She continued: “The brand and the marketing are so appealing, and I find that I get such a positive response from potential clients. I love the fact that I am an ethical employer creating family friend jobs in my local area.”
Despite now being an established franchisee, Toni still enjoys the regular communication with other business owners: “I like being part of something bigger and then at the same time being a business owner. There are lots of other franchisees all at different stages of business and it inspires me to see how they all operate and contribute to the brand.”
When asked about her biggest achievement in franchising so far Toni expressed how her business has taught her things that not even a successful business career can prepare you for: “I couldn’t say one single thing as are there are so many elements that make up this journey. It has been a steep learning curve and I am proud of the hard work that I have put in so far to get where I am. I still have a way to go but even at an early stage, I do have the feeling that I am building something tangible.”
Toni now plans to grow her business further and build on what she has already achieved: “I have long since realised that it is impossible to do everything at once and I look forward to planning for growth and achieving the milestones that I have set for myself. With the help of my team of Professional Housekeepers, my biggest ambition is to put Bright & Beautiful on the map in Derby and build a reputation for providing a premium service.”
