What do I get?
When you become a franchise partner with Concierge Home Services, you get your own territory from which you can grow your business from your home office. We provide you with thorough training in all aspects of our culture, systems, communications, procedures, and marketing. Ongoing support is always available. Monthly team meetings, quarterly training, and help is always just a phone call away.
How do territories work?
Franchise Partners are granted a protected territory based on postal code and geographic layout. Territory boundaries are selected after considering such factors as demographic profile and household count.
What about royalties?
Ongoing royalty is 5% of your gross revenue.
Is there training?
There is an initial pre-opening period when we guide you through setting up your home office, and preparing your PR and marketing campaign. Then we start with a week of classroom learning from your home office. One-on-one web conferences and self-led tutorials will guide you through every aspect of our operating system. Then you come to Ottawa for an intensive 5 days of practical application of the skills you learned. You’ll be in the field to practise quoting for clients and training staff. You’ll work alongside our management team to get you comfortable and confident. After you return home to your community, we provide structured coaching to support you as you begin to build your business. There are also regular team meetings and ongoing training via Skype, webinars, and computer-based tutorials.
What do I need?
This isn’t about being good at house cleaning or loving pets, though that doesn’t hurt. We are looking for people who want to be part of a company that is about communicating and solving problems. If you love to engage with people, enjoying the satisfaction of being organized, and the challenge of problem solving, then those are the skills that will enable you to succeed running your Concierge Home Services franchise.
What is the process?
We understand that finding the right franchise fit is a big decision. We believe in a collaborative process where we both ask many questions, and exchange lots of information. It’s important that we both feel good about our franchise partnership. We are members of the Canadian Franchise Association and adhere to their Franchise Code of Ethics, as well as being compliant with franchise law in Ontario.
