“The level of support provided to the franchisees is far more than I was expecting”
- Mark Round NatWest
The Chemex focus is on protecting customers' reputations - franchisees don't just deliver products; they offer advice, site surveys, consultancy and training on how to improve business operations. Therefore we offer year round training opportunities on a wide variety of subjects that keep the franchise base in front of the competition.
With over 400 products to offer and new products introduced on a regular basis, we provide in depth support via our forums and on-line technical manuals.
The Training: We will teach you everything you need to know about running a Chemex Franchise. You will learn: Product Knowledge, Salesmanship, Servicing, Customer Service, Collection Skills, Business Administration, Software Training.
On the final day your vehicle will be fully prepared as a mobile store ready to start delivering your products and services in your very own territory.
The Investment: The total cost of the Franchise is £22,500 + VAT (VAT is reclaimable) and Chemex has finance advice built into the cost of the franchise. Help and support on building your plans and finding the finance that you need right from day one.
Using this financed route you will need to raise £15,000 yourself which includes your working capital and all associated costs for setting up the business with finance for the rest.
Benefits enjoyed by franchisees with Chemex include a £5000 product promotion to help you lift the business in the early months, a 25% reduction in royalties purely for on time administration and direct help in building your early customer base with free in field support and telemarketing campaigns!
“Having enjoyed 20 years with the franchise I have now sold up and have realised my asset which has enabled me to retire comfortably”
Roger Perrin - Ex Salisbury franchisee
“We sell necessities not luxuries and therefore they are better suited to riding out the recession that has hit the UK...As a franchise owner I have access to a tried and tested business model as well as on-going training and support."
Andy Carter - Humberside
“I have over 25 years invested in Chemex and it has provided me with a very decent standard of living."
Charles Williams – North West
“Our business is about as recession proof as you can get as the service and products we provide are seen as necessities by our customers. There are lots of businesses in our area which need our services. We have found that customers don’t want a supplier of cleaning products – they want the added value of the full package of free training and consultancy that we provide.”
John Heslop – Yorkshire
