SOLVED365 Enters Franchise Market

03 September 2018 | Updated 05 September 2018
 

SOLVED365 is a brand new franchise specialising in commercial cleaning. The franchise has spun out of Total Solutions Group; a multi-million-pound, independently-owned, company which was launched by Sharmin Akter in 2014.

The concept behind SOLVED365 is simple. There is huge demand for Total Solutions Group’s services right across the UK, so to meet that demand they are offering exclusive franchise territories to ambitious franchisees who, with full training in Total Solutions Group’s methods and procedures, will service both local and national account work under the SOLVED365 brand.

Sharmin Akter, who was recently crowned Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2018 Asian Business Awards, as well as a Highly Commended in the Entrepreneur category in Asian Woman of Achievement 2018 explains: “We have a phenomenal reputation with our clients and our services are in high demand all over the country. We have a large number of high value national accounts, and we want these to be serviced by our own network of ambitious franchise owners, who have been trained to work to our very high standards. More importantly though, our franchisees are trained and supported to build their business first and foremost through locally sourced work. They do this through networking, great marketing and customer referrals, so when they do get national account work from head office, it’s a really nice bonus for them.”

“This hasn’t been a hastily-made decision and we have developed a formal franchise structure with a British Franchise Association accredited consultant and piloted it successfully. We have undergone a feasibility study and we are really excited about not only what this growth will mean for us, but for the franchise owners who join us.”

“Few services are as commonly outsourced as cleaning. Cleaning remains a necessity and the potential financial, quality and convenience benefits of outsourcing continue to provide an attractive proposition, even during periods of economic uncertainty.”

SOLVED365 franchisees will be providing commercial contract cleaning services within sectors such as offices, GP surgeries and private hospitals, schools and colleges, warehousing and distribution centres, student accommodation, hotels, care homes, retail and restaurants.

SOLVED365 franchisees will enjoy tried and tested back-office services, including call handling, HR and recruitment support, health and safety support, ongoing in-house training, marketing support and 24/7 helpline. The induction training provided is for three weeks and will be a mix of classroom based training at head office and field based training.

SOLVED365 currently has opportunities across the UK, including hot spot areas in London, Newcastle, Liverpool, Manchester, Bristol, Kent, Essex, Surrey, Cobham, Redhill, Gatwick borders on M23 and A23, Reading, Oxford, Birmingham, West Thurrock and Cardiff.
