The Successful FCF Franchise Evolution

FCF's first franchisees and their return in investment and hard work

Starting a green field business isn't easy and the hard yards in the first three years really set up a business for your goals. John and Carmen decided not to employee people and build a strong business with their biggest at $38,711.33 for a month in their franchise.

Taking the leap as the first franchisee with FCF was a big risk and after doing their homework decided in 2012 to enter the fire and safety industry as a FCF Franchise Partner. Having zero experience in this industry and not being an electrician/ tradesperson didn't hold John and Carmen back as they stepped into a new future.

Starting with an FCF Lite Package, see how this husband and wife team (with selected contractors as required) grew their business.

  • Sell Price $241,500

The reason FCF franchised the business

Trailing branch growth for over a year and moving onto the key points that franchising brings allows FCF to run with a lighter support team. Moving managers manage mangers wasn't the idea pathway and franchising allows business owners who have invested and care about their business perform at a higher standard. Which in turn removes the need for middle management. Having a lighter head office allows our pricing to state and national clients to be extremely competitive with a higher level of service.

Franchising is a great industry and does bring people together. FCF chose franchising due to people, investment and return of investment being shared with franchisees who are local business people spending their money locally. FCF goals are to be able to provide a competitive service with a high level of expertise through training to all businesses in Australia. Franchising and people allow this vision to become a reality.

Royalties and rebates

Honesty is key to any relationship whether family, personal or business. Rebates are not accepted at FCF as the potential rebate return is then used to lower cost of supplied materials. Each supplier is set up to deal direct with each business owner and FCF negotiates the bulk buy on all franchisees behalf's.

Royalties where calculated at a flat 8% of turnover. However after a review was completed on the FCF system and under no obligation a discovery of group knowledge allowed the support office to run with a lighter team and in turn lowering the royalty needs. Using data collected FCF have been able to stage the royalties from 8% down to 2% depending on turnover. A little percentage change means more in your pocket to grow.

This type of honesty builds long term relationships, friendships and respect with in the FCF Group.

Can you do this?

This is a great positive industry and business to be a part of however it also comes with hard work, applying yourself and giving up time in the early years to reap the benefits of lifestyle options later on. FCF want people who want to make a difference and be a part of a team that is moving forward together as an industry leader.
