I’ve been in detailing and cleaning services for just over 20 years having spent the first 14 years operating the same business in the UK, before emigrating to Perth in 2012. My initial plan was to come to Perth and start a new career as an accountant. The only thing I didn’t realise was that detailing, and cleaning services was far more profitable than accountancy!
On arrival in Perth, I bought myself a Holden Captiva that had a big scratch down the side, the dealer said it would need a respray – I told him I could repair it without needing to repaint. He was so impressed by my work that he became my first customer and as they say the rest is history. I built up DCS over an 8-year period and then felt it was time to expand the business. I was drawn to the franchise model because it reduced the hassles with staff and provided the added benefits of an owner operator business model. I did my research and came across The Franchise Institute, and James and Shauna were so easy to work with. They were knowledgeable, approachable and made the franchising process easy to navigate.
We signed up 7 franchise partners within 7 months – so we couldn’t be happier. If you want to franchise your business cost effectively and painlessly, I highly recommend The Franchise Institute.
