David Egmore and Julie Goodall have proved Time For You is a simple franchise in UK that amply rewards its franchise owners for the work they put in.
Since launching in February 2006, they now have more than 350 clients and use 150 cleaners in their franchise area of Bury St Edmunds. They love the business model and the fact that they can work from home.
Julie said Time For You stood out from day one, adding:
“We looked at a lot of franchise in UK – not just in domestic cleaning – and Time For You was perfect. You work the hours that suit you, which is ideal when you have a family, and you get as much back as you put in.
“Yes it has been a steep learning curve. I have never run a business for myself before, only for other people. But the system is there, and if you follow it, it works.”
Julie puts the secret of their business down to getting the basics right, day in, day out.
“We always answer the phone and return calls promptly”, she says. If we get a new client enquiry, we go to see them at their convenience and carefully match them to the right cleaner. We know what people want from a domestic cleaner in their home andmake them feel at ease with us.
“None of this is particularly difficult, it’s what head office teaches us to create a successful franchise. We followed the system to the letter from day one, and before we knew it we has 350 clients and as much work as we can handle”.
