Fire & Electrical Franchise Opportunities – The Power of a National Brand
We know that marketing is probably a headache. You might be saying what so many other businesses are saying ‘Where do I find new clients?’
With a national brand you can open doors that previously wouldn’t be open to you. We have proven marketing systems and also marketing materials.
No more wasting time trying to design a marketing piece when you are not sure what you are doing. No more hoping that the phone will magically start ringing. We can help you come up with the strategies and activities you can be doing in your local area to gain more clients and at the same time, we are out speaking to potential national contracts and tenders to win work on everyone’s behalf.
The Benefits of the FCF Fire & Electrical Franchise
Group buying power makes a difference on each job. Wholesalers are a great place to gain group discounts. We also look at car insurance, business insurance, fuel accounts and more. Being part of the group also means extra savings than an individual business.
Your Independence is key to why you’re in business. Taking time off requires an office team manager and field staff to ensure the business continues to operate without you.
We want to help you grow and be more independent by having your own team. Our training is not only for you but also for your staff. Remember you are the owner and operator and that doesn’t change.
Being part of a group has more advantages than being an individual contractor such as buying power, skills, knowledge and national coverage.
