What is Franchising?

Franchising provides ambitious individuals with an opportunity to start their own business. Franchises offer a ‘business in a box’ for all candidates that complete a rigorous recruitment process. This includes the essential training, established branding, proven systems and ongoing franchise support.


Why Should I Start a Franchise?

Many people dream of starting their own business, but the lack of new business ideas or the graveyard of valiant start-ups regularly squashes the ambitions of countless individuals.

Franchising offers an avenue to harness your aspirations. By utilising an established brand and business model, you can create a better life for yourself and your family. And with fewer than 1% of franchises per year suffering commercial failure, there is a dramatically reduced risk of your new business closing.

Franchisees What do existing franchisees think of your chosen opportunity? Have you seen testimonials? Does the franchisor offer the chance to speak to an existing franchise owner?

“The support is great especially with the regional meetings as there is always something new to learn. It’s also great to have a get together with other Drain Doctor franchisees as there is so much to learn talking to one another.”
