Global Excellence 2021

Acquisition International - Global Excellence 2021 79 Acquisition International - Issue 8 17 Serving Customer and Community To drill a little deeper into its franchise models, it offers three different ones. This is because it knows that no two business or businesspeople operate in the same way – thus, its Master franchise model grants exclusive rights over an entire country managed by an exclusive ambassador, allowing them to develop the country with units in each area. Its Area Development model, however, grants these rights over a new territory, such as a city, but still allows for the management of several units. Finally, its Working franchise model is the lowest investment franchise opportunity that is nonetheless just as important, allowing franchisees to work with a team in a chosen service and suitable for service providers who seek independence with their time and resources. The timeline, when it comes to franchising, is also totally up to the franchisee. Fantastic Services will work with them in order to find the model that is right for them and help them negotiate with the unique factors of the area they wish to operate in; that being said, largely the scale will decide how long it will take to set up. A Working franchise could be in the field within weeks, whereas Area Development and Master franchises will take at least a month to set up properly. Furthermore, this has developed a determination fostered by both Fantastic Services and its franchisees, one that has allowed it to weather many challenges – even the hurdles of Covid-19. It worked hard to implement all the right safety measures and protocols, even developing an Antiviral Sanitation service to help its clients through this tough time. It also offered two hours of free domestic cleaning to UK based key workers, and a grant programme was launched in April to provide those who had lost their job or business to the outbreak with £5,000 of investments towards a Working franchise quick start. Additionally, it is looking towards a sustainable future for itself and its franchisees. Fantastic Services believes that environmental corporate responsibility is a must in today’s world, working hard to positively impact all communities it comes across environmentally, socially, and economically. Fantastic Services has therefore made a name for itself as a great influencing factor that can help communities retain their autonomy – giving small business back what they lost during the pandemic for one thing – and ensuring the eponymous fantastic nature of its services are available in the local area. Its employees, franchisees, and customers can always guarantee to come away energised and invigorated, inspired by the encouraging and empathic environment they find within stores across the globe and excited to come back time and time again, as they so often do.
