In January former call centre senior manager Harry Sahota launched Betterclean Services Glasgow – the network’s first territory in Scotland. “I’d been working as a senior operations manager at a call centre for eight years, when I found out my role was being made redundant,” Harry remembered. “I was offered another position, but what I really needed was a new challenge and the chance to be master of his own destiny.”
“I knew I wanted a management role and something that would involve dealing with customers. But rather than start my own business from scratch, I decided to take a look around for franchise opportunities. Then I came across the Betterclean Services franchise opportunity while searching online, was very impressed with what I saw and decided to find out more.”
When compared to other opportunities he came across, Harry describes the Betterclean Services opportunity as “second to none”. He was particularly impressed with what he heard from existing members of the network. “I was also impressed by the commitment to quality through ISO9001 accreditation and the branding. After meeting Dan and Mike, I was sure I’d get the support I needed to make a success of my new business. The recruitment process was excellent too – very well structured.”
In the short term, Harry remains focused on establishing his franchise in Glasgow, city of his birth and where he has always lived, but after that, he admits that one day he would like to own and manage another franchise north of the border.
Betterclean Services now has franchise owners in England, Wales and Scotland, with territories up and running in York, Plymouth, Brighton, North London, Essex, Torquay (the template business), Swansea and now Glasgow. Betterclean Services Managing Director and Founder, Dan van Kuyk, said: “I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to Harry, he is an excellent addition to the Betterclean Services franchise network.
“As an experienced manager, he brings exactly the kind of experience and personal attributes necessary to establish and grow a Betterclean Services franchise business. Naturally, we’ll be there to support him to ensure he is able to establish a successful business.
“Obviously I’m always very proud when the network grows, and it really is good to extend our reach into Scotland. Hopefully, soon I’ll be welcoming other new franchisees to our network, in Scotland, Wales and England. Despite our success and growth, many more opportunities are available!”
