Prices vary between and regions as well as the level of weekly work guarantee you require.
The weekly work guarantee is a promise of work. If you purchase a guarantee of $1,000 a week, that’s how much work you can expect your regional franchisee to supply.
Your work guarantee applies for up to 10 years. After that we operate a “reasonable endeavour” policy – this means we will continue to do our best to keep work flowing or replace your work.
As a new franchisee you can expect up to five weeks training, depending on the service, area and your skill level, covering everything from business management to equipment maintenance and most importantly ‘on the job’ training.
In the franchise agreement there is a maximum 14 day cooling off period after the signing of the agreement during which you can back out.
Before you start you will purchase from us a starter pack which includes a full set of uniforms, all the equipment you’ll need to perform the basic services and a full range of essential products.
More than big enough! Your territory will include a large number of sites to keep you busy for as long as you want.
Job quoting is handled by the Regional Franchisee in your area. Not only does this save you time (which effectively saves you money), it ensures that pricing is consistent across all franchisees. Your Regional Franchisee is trained and experienced in providing accurate quotations and to seal the deal. However, once you become more experienced and confident with what you are doing, you are welcome to quote your own work, if you want.
You can discuss the quote with the regional franchisee and we will review it.
Most certainly you can! The sign writing on your vehicle will attract plenty of attention and bring customers to you. You’ll also get word of mouth referrals from happy customers. Your Regional Franchisee will also have advertising material available for you to purchase. But, remember, if you need help simply talk to your Regional Franchisee.
Customers can pay by cash, cheque or internet banking. Some regional franchisees also have credit card facilities available for you to use.
Regional franchisees collect payment direct from the customer and pay you on the 28th of the following month. This has been very successful for our franchisees, as they don’t have to worry about approaching their customers for money – they leave that to their regional franchisees who are better equipped to collect from business customers.
The franchise agreement has been created to ensure that all aspects of the franchise system are abided by both parties. Brand protection is of principal importance to any business and the success of both parties relies on our respective performance in business practices. These have been addressed for everyone’s peace of mind.
Your Regional Franchisee will help you to find a solution. This is one of the biggest advantages of joining At Your Request is that we work together to provide for situations such as these. Remember, whenever you have a question about anything to do with work, talk to your Regional Franchisee..
