Solved365 enters the franchise market

Solved365 is a new franchise specialising in commercial cleaning which 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 demand for Total Solutions Group's services across the UK, so to meet that demand the company is offering exclusive franchise territories to 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 said: "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 enjoy 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. The company currently has opportunities across the UK, including 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.
