Initial training is 5 days, classroom style, at the Molly Maid support office, designed to give a full understanding of the business systems. Then a dedicated business advisor spends 5 days onsite coaching the new franchisee at customer estimate appointments and attending staff interviews. From then the franchisee is standing on their own feet but with close support from their business advisor for the life of the franchise.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
Largely about managing staff and marketing the business. You will be meeting customers in their homes and discussing their cleaning requirements and making sure that your staff do the job to agreed cleaning standards. There is a need to balance your time out in your neighbourhood meeting new customers, and developing existing customers, with essential administration of the business which you will be able to carry out from your own home.
