Our Franchise Matching Process
Step 1 – Initial research – Our franchise website
We’ll send you a copy of our marketing literature and franchise prospectus. And, of course, you’ll be going your own research into franchising, perhaps through the BFA, a consultant, or by considering other franchise options. Let us know if you’d like us to point you towards some useful sources of information. Your own research into franchising, other franchise options – we can point you in the right direction!
Step 2 – Phone Conversation with our Commercial Director
Once you’ve done some initial research, we’ll arrange a phone conversation with our Commercial Director for an initial chat about whether Envirocare could be right for you, and a chance to ask questions. The next step will be to invite you to complete our Confidentiality Agreement and Initial Application Form and arrange a Discovery Session at our Head Office in Lancashire
Step 3 – Your Discovery Session and Initial Interview at our Head Office in Leyland, Lancashire
Taking place over half a day, this is an opportunity to come and meet our Managing Director and our Head Office team to discover more about our model, see our Depot and get to know our people. We’d encourage you to bring a partner, family members, professional advisor, friend or anyone else who you think can help you get the most out of the session. We’ll also interview you so we can evaluate your skills assess how well you might fit our model. This is part of our ethical approach – we’d rather identify any skills gaps “up front” so we discuss them and agree how to support you and help you to understand where you are a great fit, and where you’ll face the biggest challenge.
Step 4 – Field Research!
We’ll give you contact details for the our network of franchisees so you can do your own research. We won’t “stage manage” this bit – just allow you some time to talk as many of our people as you feel you need to.
Step 5 – Follow-up Meeting
Follow-up meeting to answer any final questions following the field research and make decisions on which territory to proceed with and timelines.
Step 6 – Offer and Acceptance of an Envirocare Franchise!
All being well, we’ll issue an offer letter and invite you to our Head Office to sign a Heads of Agreement and pay a deposit. Then we can make a start ordering equipment, searching for a depot location and arrange your training, business planning and launch.
