The following information is designed to give you a general picture of Elite franchisees. But don’t interpret this too narrowly! Our franchisees have unique business and personal backgrounds that have helped them find success with Elite.
Elite requires applicants to demonstrate a Net Worth of at least $150,000 and minimum liquidity of $60,000 in order to move forward in the discovery process.
Typically, an Elite franchisee will possess many of the following attributes, making the Elite system a good fit for their business approach:
Has business ownership, management, or operations experience
Seeks flexibility to facilitate increased time or for other businesses
Enjoys setting benchmarks and achieving goals
Values building a business by delivering “wow” service to customers
Understands the basics of consultative sales and marketing (Elite does provide support and franchise training in these and other aspects of the business)
Elite franchisees come from various backgrounds. Many of them never thought they’d own a window cleaning franchise one day!
Our franchisees have varying backgrounds including small business owners, executive chef, special needs teacher, service manager, journalist, IT project manager and general manager – to name a few.
As part of the Elite franchise research process, you’ll have a chance to speak with our franchisees and ask them about their growth and experiences. Elite franchisees tend to be a well-connected group, sharing ideas and support for your franchise startup.
START RESIDENTIAL THEN SCALE TO COMMERCIAL
Elite is seeking franchisees who want to build meaningful empires. In other words, a business that you will invest into appropriately (marketing, vehicles, equipment, etc.), allowing for rapid growth and scale. We want owners who are interested in working on their business, not necessarily in their business, especially after the first 12-18 months of operation. We will have you as a new owner focus on learning the ropes and focused on residential customers at the start, but be prepared to quickly take your business to the next level with commercial account opportunities!
The Elite business model is built to put you in a position of success, and allow for scale in the years to come. Our model provides a clear path toward your Elite empire, when considering the following.
