Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE IDEAL PROFILE FOR A NEW FRANCHISEE?

The ideal candidate to be a Green Earth franchisee is hands-on, one who does not shy away from physical labor, and will get their hands dirty when necessary. This person is an owner-operator who would ideally be leading his crew whenever there is the need.

The owner operator of a Green Earth Powerwashing franchise must also be comfortable with face-to-face customer sales and service and, above all, possess a ‘customer first’ attitude. A franchisee must be a “people person” who is outgoing and can bond with potential/current clients in their surroundings. It is vital that a franchisee have the knowledge and skills so that they can perform the services offered so that they will not have to pay the costs of outsourcing the project to an outside contractor or employee (although it is possible that a franchisee is better at selling). Their time may be more useful making sales calls.  

Passive ownership is discouraged but will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO OPEN THE BUSINESS?

The concept fits very well into today’s franchise marketplace. It is a business model that allows for a reasonable and realistic initial investment. A franchisee will be able to operate out of their home (although they may need to rent a small storage space).  A franchisee can get into business with a specialized vehicle and all the required initial tooling – all for around $87,000.00(financing the vehicle and equipment).

DOES THE FRANCHISOR OFFER FINANCING?

No, however, we do work with several lenders who specialize in franchise funding in SBA guaranteed loans and in establishing lines of credit to effectively fund your business, your local banking relationship is always a great place to start.

WHAT ARE THE INITIAL FRANCHISE FEES AND ONGOING ROYALTY FEES?

Green Earth Powerwashing charges an initial, one-time fee of $40,000 for the franchise, initial training, and the rights to operate under the marks, trade dress and systems established by the Green Earth Powerwashing.  You will be charged a 6% royalty on gross sales.  You will also be required to pay a marketing fee used to build the brand name, goodwill and support overall marketing of Green Earth Powerwashing of 1% on gross sales.  We also require that 3 % of gross revenues be spent in the local market on advertising and brand development.

HOW LONG WILL THE PROCESS TAKE FROM INTRODUCTION TO OPENING?

The process can go as quickly as you are ready to take the next steps! Franchise development is a two-way street; our business must be right for you and you must be right the right fit for the business.  We will offer you a thorough understanding of the business and if you choose to move forward (yet without committing) you will be expected to provide proof of financial qualifications and certainly we want to get to know you, and you will get to know us, before signing a Franchise Agreement.  The entire process can take from 3 to 6 months for thorough research, final selection, training and Grand Opening.

DOES THE FRANCHISE OFFER A MUTI-UNIT FRANCHISING OPPORTUNITY?

Yes! We do offer discounts for those special new franchisees that desire to be an empire builder and commit to developing multiple markets within an established period of time. Our Franchise Disclosure Document shows a range

HOW MANY EMPLOYEES WILL BE REQUIRED TO RUN MY BUSINESS?

This business can be run “lean and mean” with just a few trained employees and an active franchisee.  We cannot hire your employees for you…they work for you, not us, and it is important for you to establish that rapport early on. We will train you on how to hire the right employees, what experience, and personality profiles to look for and provide guidance on salary ranges for each role. Typically, a start-up business can be run with few people.

The Green Earth model runs smoothly with a manageable number of employees and a reasonable workload for an owner operator.

WHAT TYPE OF TERRITORY WILL I BE OFFERED?

Green Earth will initially be focusing the growth of the franchise system throughout the Southeastern U.S., beginning with a strong push in Florida. Green Earth will be offering exclusive territories to their franchisees as one of the key benefits to early adopters. We will be offering territories based on a population in a specific market – ideally, the lesser of 100,000-250,000 people in the MSA or a 15-mile radius.  There may be other factors as well, accounting for the number of homes in the area or the level of competition.

WILL YOU ASSIST ME WITH DEVELOPMENT AND SETUP OF THE BUSINESS?

We will assist you in selecting an appropriate trade area. The vehicle that we set-up for you will be capable of performing work when you drive it out of our lot. We will provide you a required equipment list for opening your shop and provide full training in the skills, products and marketing needed to be successful with Green Earth Powerwashing.

Our franchisees go out with our supervisors on our trucks. They experience the day-to-day operations firsthand. Our office staff handles the learning processes of bidding, measuring, costing, etc.

After training you will be ready to get started. Green Earth staff will always be available to help in answering questions relating to operations in the field and office.

WILL YOU HELP ME WITH MY INITIAL MARKETING STRATEGY AND GRAND OPENING?

Yes! It is important for you to understand the value of marketing your business and becoming part of the local community.  We will train you in these skills in the initial training program.

HOW LONG WILL I BE AT TRAINING AND WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO LEARN?

Green Earth will provide our franchisees with approximately two weeks of initial training at the Franchisor’s location, beginning approximately four to six weeks before the franchisee is scheduled to open for business. This will include one week of sales, estimating & working with the software, and one week (or more) of training at job sites learning the cleaning processes and procedures.  This training will be provided for the franchisee and up to one other team member.

On-site training typically takes place when the franchisee commences operations of their franchise.  An experienced trainer from Green Earth may provide on-site training for a period of up to one week to assist the franchisee in the commencement of operations.

Your training program will include; 

  • Administration & Management
  • Generating new business
  • IT & back office systems
  • Customer Experience
  • Operational procedures and required skills
  • Marketing strategies and programs
