An entrepreneurial spirit
Duzgun Derin moved to the UK with a background in the food industry. He had 12 years experience of managing a restaurant and his entrepreneurial nature meant he was keen to start a business of his own. Not having the available funds to set up his own restaurant, Duzgun set about researching other business opportunities available to him.
A new business with great potential
After a great deal of investigation, Duzgun felt the cleaning industry represented huge potential in his local area. Not only did he live in a growing town with many commercial buildings and businesses in need of cleaning services, he had also researched the market place and found there were few commercial cleaning companies with satisfied customers – so he felt he had found a gap in the market and was keen to explore it.
Jani-King: a supportive franchise partner
New to the commercial cleaning industry, Duzgun then sought out a franchise partner who could support him along the way. He looked into various options – trying to find a reliable company with a good reputation to help him launch his new business. He was attracted to Jani-King because of their global reach and professionalism, which reassured him of a supportive management structure.
Great training scheme and ready-signed cleaning contracts
It was also important for Duzgun, that they had a great training scheme and provided ready-signed cleaning contracts so that he could hit the ground running and didn’t have to worry about winning new business in an unfamiliar industry.
On meeting with Will Gavan, Jani-King’s Director, Duzgun felt instantly at ease:
Duzgun continued his discussions with Will for some time before making his final decision. He researched the packages available and felt that they were reasonably priced. The support from Will was very helpful and the process went smoothly.
Excellent training and support network
Duzgun eventually chose to purchase the Jani-King Plan 10, which offered him £10,000 monthly turnover and a profit level to match his previous income. Being new to Jani-King, he is yet to embark on his first contract. He has just completed the training, for which he had high praise: “The training was very good and I learnt a lot from Carlton. He is great – very passionate about his job”.
He learnt a lot about the industry and about Jani-King from the training and has also found the ladies in the office to be very helpful.
A bright future
Duzgun envisages a bright future for his company. Having gained initial industry experience, with the help and support of the Jani-King team, he plans to grow his business further and reap the benefits.
