Supply Franchise UK Chemex International Ltd
What We Do
Chemex is a well-established franchise that has been running in the UK and internationally for more than 25 years. Represented on the board of the British Franchise Association, Chemex are also previous winners of the bfa's prestigious Franchisor of the Year Award.
We have helped many people launch their own businesses over the years in the Chemex business model as one of the UK's leading hygiene supply companies.
Franchisees provide good value, high quality, simple-to-use products, systems and services to clients to help them enjoy clean and hygienic premises. All industry sectors need cleaning and hygiene products, but Chemex are especially popular with the hospitality and healthcare industries.
Chemex focuses on improving and protecting customers' reputations - franchisees don't just deliver products; they also offer advice, site surveys, consultancy and training on how to improve business operations.
Although Chemex has been going in the UK for so long, we still have lots of territories available, both due to our own business expansion and successful franchisees moving on, realising their investment and either retiring or starting new ventures.
Financing Your Franchise
The Chemex finance team will help you find the best funding options for developing your new business. Chemex have strong relationships with all major UK banks, which means that the banks have a strong understanding of our business format.
The franchise support team will help you put together the financial aspects of your business plan using established templates that the banks require for processing funding applications. These templates will also help in working out how much liquid capital you will need to get started.
Every franchisee is given a large territory, designed to incorporate a mix of businesses including healthcare, hospitality and leisure to give you the largest customer base possible. It is possible to develop beyond a single-operator company, as flexibility and opportunity are built into your business plan.
Our Training and Induction Package
Chemex offer comprehensive training, including a two week residential period, followed by on-the-job training. Extensive support helps you to learn as you go, constantly review your training and win new customers.
After initial training, our support managers run our 'Kick Start' programme. This includes a series of visits designed to give you the confidence to run your business smoothly from the start.
Once your business gets going, our head office and regional support teams provide any help and advice you may need. A series of courses are run throughout the year to help improve your insight into the Chemex business at a pace to suit you. We do recommend that you undertake the training on a regular basis to help you on your way to success.
When new products are introduced, we provide support with any necessary materials and training provided. We also provide training on changes in legislation, innovations and new methods to help you stay an expert in the eyes of your customers.
What You Get For Your Money
Chemex offers a turnkey package including:
What Our Franchisees Say
“We sell necessities not luxuries and therefore they are better suited to riding out the recession that has hit the UK...And as a franchise owner I have access to a tried and tested business model and an on-going training and support package which continually helps me to build my business.”
“Whether it’s entire hygiene systems for food preparation or large scale laundry or dishwash systems, I have been able to help my customers and give them peace of mind.
“It is that confidence within today’s maze of ever-tightening regulations for food production that is valued by all my customers.
“I can take care of everything from stock control to advice on health and safety matters as well as providing training for their staff.”
“Our business is about as recession proof as you can get as the service and products we provide are seen as necessities by our customers.
“There are lots of businesses in our area which need our services. We have found that customers don’t want a supplier of cleaning products – they want the added value of the full package of free training and consultancy that we provide.”
