Chem-Dry Franchise Coaching Gets Fast Results
Franchise owners rely on solid training and support to move from onboarding and training to revenues in weeks, not months, as they build business
One area entrepreneurs worry about when launching their own business is that of revenue generation, especially in those early days and weeks. It’s a valid concern, and that’s why Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners can count on a system designed to have them not just operational, but generating income quickly.
The Quickstart system helps new owners get the training they need for equipment and back-office operations and takes place after initial business set up has been completed — so owners can literally leave Chem-Dry’s training facilities, get home and get to work, says Joe Nay, Quickstart Coach.
Quicker path to profitability
“New Chem-Dry franchise owners work with a business coach as part of their onboarding, and then they come to my team for the rest of the Quickstart training,” Nay says. “What we’ve changed is the work to be completed before they arrive. When they get here they should have completed their equipment order, licensing requirements and other core business essentials so that when we finish, they are ready to go.”
By having those initial procedures out of the way, franchise owners can focus on Quickstart’s marketing training and other elements, he explained. That means better retention of what’s learned and an improved ability to put those lessons into practice once clients are booked and techs are sent out to provide services.
Booking business in days not weeks
The Quickstart numbers back him up. Owners who went through the program in 2017 posted annual revenues that were 35 percent higher than those who launched their franchises in 2016. What’s more, they were booking appointments and bringing in revenue within two or three days after training vs. three to four weeks.
“It’s fundamentals, but it’s important to get them right,” Nay says. “Our role is to make sure that every Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owner has the core training they need for immediate success, and then we can help them move on to other coaching programs and training as necessary.”
