It has been a difficult time for everyone in the first quarter of 2020, however as an essential service provider The Kleaning Company (TKC) have worked hard to make sure everyone is safe and their business is in the very best shape for the future.

TKC were delighted to welcome their first franchisee, Etienne Du Toit, during a time when they are seeing growing demand for their COVID-19 decontamination service (find out more here).

Etienne Du Toit was a franchisee with a well known logistics company where he successfully grew the business from an initial 11 delivery routes, in 2009, to 43 delivery routes, in 2017.

Etienne told us that: “I consider myself to be an experienced and highly effective Managing Director/Franchisee with a proven record of invigorating and developing my businesses in the transport and logistics sector.

“I have developed a deep knowledge of business development, restructuring businesses to address pinch points whilst ensuring efficient operations, to deliver improved customer experiences, and drive revenues and growth.

When I discovered The Kleaning Company I was looking for a complementary franchise to develop and lead to profitability.”

Why did you choose The Kleaning Company franchise over an employed career?

“Having run a successful franchise business before an employed career was the last thing on my mind. When I found The Kleaning Company I felt that the experience I have gained in operational management, business development, strategic thinking, project & financial management would be a ‘perfect fit’ for this franchise model.” says Etienne.

Is Now A Good Time To Be Looking at Franchise Opportunities?

We certainly believe now is a great time to be planning for the future and most people have more flexibility and time to look into opportunities than usual due to the current situation.

Whilst The Kleaning Company has been affected (like every business) by Covid-19, there is no doubt that the construction industry will be one of the first wave of industries to go back to work, making what TKC offer of great value…
