As redundancies continue across the board in Aberdeen, could franchising throw those affected a much needed lifeline?
This is the message being relayed by Stuart White, Sanondaf master franchisee for the UK, who says franchising represents a very real opportunity for those who have lost their jobs.
He explains: “Many people when they are made redundant consider the option of starting their own business but are daunted by thought of starting from scratch. Franchising, on the other hand, offers a really easy way to become your own boss. By purchasing a reputable franchise, you are establishing an enterprise, which has a proven and profitable business model, and you will receive excellent training and support from the franchisor so you are not completely on your own.”
Sanondaf are specialists in disinfection and decontamination. Its specialist fogging product is proven to kill 99.99% of all hazardous viruses, bacteria, fungi or any other micro-organism. It is 100% safe for human, animals and plants and is proven to reach very difficult to clean places such as air vents.
“This is a real growth sector as increasingly organisations realise that the older cleaning methods just don’t cut it anymore. The service we offer is unique. The best cleaners in the world cannot catch everything, whilst we know our product is proven to kill 99.99% of all hazardous viruses, bacteria, fungi or any other micro-organism. We currently service hospitals, care homes, schools, nurseries, shopping centres to name but a few.”
White adds: We are currently recruiting for franchisees across Scotland, with investment levels starting at £18,000 plus £5,000 for equipment. We won’t give this opportunity to just anyone, a potential franchisee will have to demonstrate high levels of drive and passion to grow the business.”
