criteria that would satisfy his long-term goals. These included; finding a franchise that was both recession- and technology-proof, could grow year upon year, and would also continue to function whilst he was away or on holiday.


By attending exhibitions and seminars,


Tom researched the business sector that would best fit his list of needs. Having decided on the cleaning industry, Tom


aving been made redundant after 20 years in the electronics industry, Tom Frame found a new career with a ServiceMaster Clean franchise in the East


contacted franchisors in this field. “This is when I discovered ServiceMaster Clean,” he says. “After a meeting at ServiceMaster’s head office I established this was an opportunity worth pursuing. After eight years, I am pleased to report that my business has seen yearly growth. This has been down to my own hard work and the great support and training from ServiceMaster. The training provided at the initial training ‘Academy’ combined with the ongoing training and support has been the key to this success.” Regular network meetings and seminars


allow the sharing of ideas and best practice with fellow franchisees. Tom adds: “These are important as they make you feel part of a larger organisation whilst running your own independent business.” A ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services
