New Franchisee To Start Training
We are all excited as we have a new franchisee starting in a couple of weeks as we need to do franchisee training. He is John Rorke and he will be covering the Wolverhampton and West Staffordshire area. So we are getting things in place. We run the training here in Bristol in our office and training suite. I generally do the training although sometimes I get assistance from the guys who work for us. Though this time I am planned in to do all of the franchisee training this time. But as it was just over a month ago that I did the last franchisee training I feel in the groove and able to deliver some excellent training.
With our training we spend the first day going through some important health and safety stuff, a quick overview of our cleaning process and then we go and have a look at a whole range of different cookers in a showroom down in Somerset, The Cooker Centre at Spillers of Chard. I’ve been taking franchisees there since we have been training them and it’s a quick way for them to appreciate the market that we are targeting, and the sort of cookers they are going to be cleaning. Everything from a single oven NEFF oven, to a Falcon Range, all the AGA cookers, to the largest Wolf (American style) range cooker. Also as the cookers are set in bespoke kitchens it shows the cookers in their best light, as it were, all gleaming and new. And we can look at the top range fridges and freezers, such as the Sub Zero Freezer that sells for £12,600. It must be a good one.
So currently it’s all systems go to get things ready for him. I have already started setting up his internet presence and setting up his Google Advertising. I am also putting things in place for the delivery and conversion of his van which will be delivered to us by the end of his training so he can drive off in it. I am still working out whether to do the conversion differently as I have found a new way for us to line the back area in the van to improve it.
