Rosemary Bookkeeping’s new ‘client guarantee’ is revolutionising the franchise offering by ensuring new franchise partners have income from day one. The new scheme breaks the mould by providing all new franchisees with an initial client guarantee on completion of their 12-week training programme.
Dedicated to passing on the benefits of the scheme to new franchise partners as quickly as possible, Rosemary’s two newest recruits, Caroline O’Brien and John Lewis, have both received an impressive 25% of their current client base from the Head Office team.
The Rosemary Bookkeeping™ franchise is based on a business concept that has been established and refined since 2002. The business offers a unique bookkeeping system within a fully-supported franchise package focused on providing flexibility to its owner with superb work-life balance potential.
Caroline O’Brien, franchise partner for Coventry, trained with the Rosemary team in July 2013 and is well on her way to smashing her year one target of nine clients by July 2014. Just five months in and Caroline already has eight clients, two of which came from the Rosemary Bookkeeping Head Office under the guarantee scheme.
“The client guarantee was great for me in so many ways. On a professional level, this was my first limited company and therefore my first chance to use Sage in the ‘real world’. I also got the chance to use one of my extra training days to get some practical experience with the help of Claire Watson-Bardot the Training and Support Director at HQ. From a personal perspective, it gave me an added boost in that I could bring the story of this new client into my networking pitches, adding instant credibility to my business. Not to mention the less obvious but just as important fact that it really made me feel valued by the Rosemary team that they were prepared to offer this guarantee to me,” explains Caroline.
John Lewis opened his Sutton Coldfield franchise in April of 2013 and is already a huge Rosemary brand ambassador. A regular face at franchise exhibitions and Rosemary Bookkeeping™ Discovery Days, Jon was also crowned ‘Best Supporting Franchise Partner 2013’ at Rosemary’s annual Franchise Partner Forum and Awards in December.
“There’s no doubt that the client guarantee scheme has already been a huge success. We invest 100% in our franchise partners and this is just another level of support that we are proud to offer. It further highlights our commitment to them and their success as well as our own confidence in our franchise model,” explains Lisa Curteis, Franchise Recruitment Director.
The Rosemary Bookkeeping™ franchise is backed by four successful entrepreneur business women, Claire Watson-Bardot, Joanna Dennis, Sarah Carlile and Lisa Curteis who have over 60 years of business and bookkeeping experience between them. The franchise responds to the increasing need in the UK for an affordable, professional bookkeeping service that supports both the client and the accountant. Rosemary Bookkeeping™ franchise partners work in harmony with their clients’ accountants, providing them with exactly what they need in the format they want, saving clients’ time and money.
