There is a week-long initial sales training course, which is run by an experienced sales coach. It provides the franchisee with an introduction to our products, our franchise system and the world of selling. The real skills are learnt out on the road with his dedicated sales coach.
Every new franchisee is guaranteed at least 60 days 1:1 field-based sales coaching in their first 2 years. The sales coach helps you gradually develop your skills.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
Autosmart franchisees operate within their own exclusive territories selling our unique range of valeting products from a van kitted out inside like a supermarket. They are out and about in their vans building up a customer base that they supply to each month. They have two types of days; calling in on existing customers and also winning new ones.
