£1million franchise grant fund launched to seed 200 new small businesses
Although the pandemic has changed the business landscape with many more firms struggling as recovery begins, demand for property-related services has boomed. Fantastic Services, which covers cleaning, gardening, handyman, pest control and removals, has expanded into 20 new areas in the past year.
The company’s grant initiative plans to meet the initial expenses for starting a home services business. Prime clients are those who have lost their job, the self-employed or those experiencing business struggles due to coronavirus.
Anton Skarlatov, the co-founder and CEO of Fantastic Services, explained: “The grant covers most of the expenses for starting a working franchise business with Fantastic Services.”
Rune Sovndahl, the co-founder and board chairman, added: “Since the start of the pandemic, we have looked for ways to give back to the community, offering free services to NHS and frontline workers. With the new grant programme, we provide a viable alternative to employment through franchising and help anyone restart their career or business in a high-demand sector.”
The Fantastic Services grant programme is suitable for tradespeople, technicians with experience in the services sector and people who are looking to change industries and will bring customer service skills to the table.
Franchisees can work on-site along with their team or manage several local ones in London and other areas across the UK. It’s geared for local service providers or self-employed tradespeople who offer one or a selection of services.
HQ’s emphasis is on generating sales leads leaving franchisees to deliver the service. The company says it has invested £20m in bespoke technology platforms to streamline the booking process and work allocation.
