Happy Birthday To Extra Help ...
2 years old this week!
Posted on: 12/10/2012 By: Claire Robinson
It all started in Milton Keynes two years ago and now we have eight fantastic franchisees helping us grow the business into other areas of the United Kingdom along with the new areas we are setting up for franchisees to take over ...
yaay! it's our second birthday
It's a fantastic achievement isn't it? It shows that in today's harsh economic climate there is a growing demand for help for pensioners all the way to new mums and dads and it's a testament to our franchisees that they are all growing strong businesses in their areas.
Extra Help now has a presence in a number of areas. Milton Keynes, all the way across Hertfordshire, South Essex, West Leicester, Warrington, Buckingham and parts of Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, South East Cornwall and Plymouth. Extra Help head office is happy to take on clients all over the country to service their needs; Sarah and I are very passionate about bringing the service we provide out to everyone possible.
We offer our services to:
The elderly - offering domestic services for them to stay in their own homes for longer
Working professionals - those that need housekeeping services
New parents - those who need a helping hand with young children
Everyone else - who just need a domestic cleaning company from time to time
It has been a fantastic journey so far! Sarah and I have met some great people and we have been accredited by the NatWest Bank, who will provide funding between 70% and 80% of the cost of a franchise. We are now members of the AFA, who make sure we run our franchise properly and we are constantly looking for new franchisees - but they have to be right for us as well as Extra Help being right for them!
By the way - if you know anyone who may be interested in running their own business, who is passionate and caring about helping people why not put them in touch with us? You will earn a £500 finders fee if they are accepted into our team.
Thank you to everyone who has helped and supported us along the way. Here's to the next two years and, of course, if you need some extra help then call us on +44 (0) 845 6182904 or click here to ping over an email and we'll get right back to you.
Until next time ...
