Case Study – Meet Farooq Ahmed
|Name of franchisee:||Farooq Ahmed|
|Date signed:||April 2017|
|Plan size:||Plan 10|
Farooq Ahmed has a wealth of business experience having worked in partnership with his brother for almost two decades. However, after meeting with a friend in 2016 who ran a successful commercial cleaning company, Farooq was attracted to the robust commercial cleaning industry and its consistently high levels of demand.
From experience, Farooq was aware of the difficulties and limitations of entering a new market as a start-up, such as high levels of financial investment with little initial return and the extended time it takes to find and build relationships with new clients. He decided that starting a cleaning business within an established and successful franchise structure would give him the low-risk, quick-to-market stability he needed.
‘As the world’s largest commercial cleaning franchise, Jani-King was the obvious choice for me!’
Starting Your Own Cleaning Business
Farooq met with Will Gavan in Edinburgh a number of times and was impressed by the extensive training and support Jani-King offered. The Guaranteed Business Promise provided Farooq with the reassurance he needed and he agreed to join using the Plan 10 structure.
‘The training I have received has been fantastic. My trainer has been incredibly supportive and responsive, attending new contract meetings with me and providing guidance on all aspects of running my franchise.’
Immediately Farooq was given a number of local contracts. His plan for the future is to specialise in local businesses in Edinburgh and grow his business through a combination of contracts supplied through Jani-King and others that he finds himself.
‘I would thoroughly recommend a Jani-King franchise to anyone, regardless of their previous business experience. The whole team has been so friendly, helpful and supportive.’
