Niall Powers recalls the journey he took to become a prosperous MyHome franchisee INVESTMENT LEVEL: FROM £19,995


A


round 10 years ago, Niall Powers was working on the stock market in a highly stressful environment as an accountant. “There was a lot


of responsibility, without the authority,” he said. “I was one of the younger ones in the offi ce. I’d look around at my colleagues in their late 40s and 50s, and see they were just the same. I couldn’t see an end to it all, so when the opportunity to run my own franchise came along – I jumped!” Having become aware of franchising, Niall particularly wanted a service business – something that could expand with great potential for growth, rather than be a static enterprise (like a shop). To this end, MyHome served his purposes brilliantly as he was able to start small, but use his drive and ambition to develop it quickly into a much larger operation.


After looking at franchising in general and investigating the MyHome business


further, Niall, being the entrepreneurial businessman he is, could clearly see the scalability potential and the superior product off ering, so committed and attended his initial fi ve-day training course. “I already had accounting skills, and an MSc in Advanced Marketing, so the part of the training I found most helpful was on the more practical front. Things like booking appointments, quoting for business etc,” said Niall. MyHome is one of the UK’s leading


premium domestic-cleaning companies, which aims to provide a consistent and secure, reliable cleaning service developed originally by Unilever for the “up-market” and professional sector. MyHome was recently acquired and re-launched by Franchise Brands – parent company to internationally recognised brands ChipsAway and Ovenclean, who together have a collective trading history of over 50 years and a combined worldwide network of more than 350 franchise partners in 10 countries.


Niall Powers and his team MyHome franchisees are not cleaners!


They are talented individuals like Niall, who manage and build a supremely effi cient domestic-cleaning franchise business, whilst understanding the value of working within a proven business format.


Niall concluded: “When you have the right mental framework in place to run your own business and the determination to make it a hit, you’re set for success – especially with a solid company like MyHome. All the processes and support are in place. I only have to think back to the faces of those stressed older men in my offi ce 10 years ago, to know I made the right decision.”
