Case Study – Meet Ibim Hailsham
|Name of franchisee:||Ibim Hailsham|
|Date signed:||August 2017|
|Location:||St John’s Wood, London|
|Plan size:||Plan 10|
As an entrepreneurial woman, Ibim Hailsham is no stranger to exciting new ventures! Following a role in the NHS, she embarked on a new career as a property developer, buying houses at auction, renovating them and selling them on. However, in a slowing housing market, Ibim became frustrated that her cash was tied up in property and sought a new direction.
After completing her own research, Ibim identified that the franchising business model would give her the entrepreneurial freedom she enjoyed, with the low start-up costs she could afford, plus the support and security of an international market-leading brand. After attending a franchising exhibition, Ibim was convinced that this was the direction for her, and set about deciding which industry she should target.
Commercial Cleaning is a sound investment
Ibim quickly recognised that the commercial cleaning industry is a sound investment due to its ‘recession-proof’ nature and the constant and far-reaching demand it enjoys. Further research brought her to Jani-King as the world’s largest commercial cleaning franchise with an enviable, established history.
Comprehensive Training and Support
After meeting with Will Gavan and signing up, Ibim thoroughly enjoyed her weeks training with Operations Manager Carlton Banks at Jani-King HQ in Weybridge.
Ibim says “My training with Carlton was fantastic. He has been so supportive and positive, regularly getting in touch to see how I’m doing and offering advice.”
Ibim’s plan for the future is to concentrate on winning her own contracts in her local area of North West London as well as accepting guaranteed contracts offered under the Jani-King Guaranteed Business Promise as part of her Plan 10 structure. She plans to manage her own team who will provide the highest quality, professionally commercial cleaning services to a diverse range of clients.
We wish Ibim every success in her new venture!
