Window Cleaning Business Set To Clean Up

A recent newspaper article (below) heralded the first franchisee to join the El Toro Window & Gutter Cleaning team. The many advantages of the franchising model over using contractors or employees are now paying bearing fruit.

Our first franchisee has been busy from day one. His client database is constantly expanding, making it a real asset. And we are only just entering the 'pre-christmas rush'!

As it warms up and people prepare their house for the social life of summer, clean windows and gutters are a must. In years past, El Toro has had turn away numerous new clients due to being fully booked out.

Franchise territories are still available in prime spots in each capital city of Australia. As El Toro is based in Sydney, there are various territories with an existing client base. For more information check out El Toro Window Washing & Gutter Cleaning

Balgowlah Businessman Jonathon Bull says becoming a franchisee can be a shortcut to success when you're starting a business.

In six years, he has gone from a sole operator of a window and gutter cleaning business, to managing about three contractors each day to granting his first franchise last month.

  And he said franchising was the best way to make the most of a growing number of customers without taking on more contractors, which he said had a number of pitfalls.

"I was doing a lot of organising and quoting for each worker." he said.

"Then there was paying their wages and handling last-minute changes and getting the right people to wor isn't easy either. I just kept thinking "what other way can I arrange things?""

Starting a franchise took more that a year of preparation for Mr Bull and a $30,000 investment. He now receives initial franchise fees and ongoing royalties.

"Franchisees are better motivated to go out of their way to impress clients, so the can build their own business rather than just impress the boss," he said.

And while franchisees receive training, guidance and more business recognition, Mr Bull said he enjoyed the change in lifestyle and focus on business development.

"As I was getting more customers it was just becoming more problematic with contractors," he said. "I'm not as well off with just one franchisee yet, but once I have three or four franchisees that's the point where I'm better off franchising and it's a better lifestyle."
