I’m excited to announce that NIC will be exhibiting at the Franchise Opportunities Scotland exhibition on the 25th April. The network here at NIC continues to grow and I’m really looking forward to meeting some really motivated and enthusiastic individuals looking to take control of theirs and their families lives. This brand-new exhibition will take place at The Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow.
With an annual spend in excess of £8.8 billion, and growing every year, the commercial cleaning and support services industry is the perfect environment for new management franchisees and seems the perfect fit for the Scottish franchise sector, which according to the British Franchise Association, will be worth £1billion by 2020.
One such aspiring Scottish franchisee is Andy Galloway, who has made great strides as a new business manager and evidence to his great success was apparent within just a single year. Andy came to NIC looking for a “fresh challenge,” and worked hard to grow his new business.
Reflecting on his first year, Andy said, “It has certainly involved a lot of hard work, but I am really enjoying the work/life balance that I now have.” He particularly enjoys the face-to-face nature of his new business and getting to know his new employees and customers.
Andy was completely new to the cleaning industry, but our support network helped him comfortably find his footing: “I found the initial training invaluable”, he recalled, “as both an introduction into the cleaning industry and the NIC business as a whole.”
“The back-office admin support is fantastic”, Andy said, “NIC handle everything from payroll to invoicing your customers and credit control. This allows you to use your time efficiently and concentrate on building relationships with your clients and growing your business.”
I’d love to have the chance to meet you at Franchise Opportunities Scotland and talk to you about our management franchise opportunities. This will give us the opportunity to cover:
