Dolly Char Franchise Annual Dinner and Franchisee Presentation

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Recently the Dolly Char Franchise Annual Dinner and Franchisee Presentation evening took place at the Admiral Rodney Hotel, Horncastle.  The event took on extra significance due to the fact that Dolly Char Ltd based in central Lincolnshire and the original Dolly Char Agency was celebrating ten successful years of trading.

The evening commenced with franchisees and guests having their photos taken upon entering the hall.  After a pre-meal drink and a group photo everyone sat down for a wonderful three course dinner at approx 7.15.  After the main course had been eaten, Magician Paul Cooke entertained each table with some of his spectacular close upnow-thats-magic magic.  At the conclusion of the meal Robin Harrison the Managing Director of Dolly Char (UK) Ltd stood up and spoke for a few minutes about his experiences and most importantly thanking everyone who had supported the event.

Unfortunately due to ill health the expected guest speakers could not attend so Mr Robert Bullard agreed at very short notice to fill the void left!  Robert did a brilliant talk for around 15 minutes on the subject of ten year cycles within business and received a deserving round of applause as he sat down.

Following Roberts talk it was time for one of the most important parts of the evening the presentation of the Dolly Char Franchisee awards.  One of the directors Carol Harrison presented the trophies after Robin Harrison first introduced each award mentioning about the criteria used for judging each award before finally announcing each of the 2011 award winners individually.

The Franchisee Award Winners for each catorgory were Best Monthly Growth Matt Duffy Edinburgh, Most improved Franchisee Phil Docherty Chesterfield, Best Franchisee Newcomer Deborah Guthrie North Lincs and finally the coveted Dolly Char (UK) Ltd Franchisee of the Year award for 2011 went to Chris Smith Eastbourne.  A special and surprise award was then presented by Carol Harrison to Robert Bullard in recognition of him having stepped in at such short notice.

With the conclusion of speeches and the presentation the rest of the evening was taken up by background music which was provided by the Deja Vu Roadshow and a Roulette and Blackjack Table with bottles of wine on offer to the most successful competitors.

At the end of the evening approx 12.00 Robin Harrison again thanked everyone and announced that next year’s event was already booked for September 1st 2012, same place same time!

Robin Harrison who is the MD of Dolly Char (UK) Ltd

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Robin Harrison who is the MD of Dolly Char (UK) Ltd is one of a dying breed of franchisors who can still be found actively work on their own business. Robin Harrison

Robin believes that continuing to manage his own territory/business enables him to keep ahead of his competitors by allowing him to focus on trialing and testing new marketing techniques, business ideas.  Those ideas that prove to be successful he then shares throughout his franchise network.

Robin goes on to say that being hands on  he can “spot any problems a mile off and offer the remedy at a much earlier stage a really great benefit to my franchisees”.

A small sample of what his franchisees have said about him:

“The support and training I have received from Dolly Char has been second to none and nothing seems to be too much trouble.”

“That must have taken you lots of time to do last night. I am truly grateful for your continuous, unequivocal and relentless support.”

“Just like to say a big thank you for coming over and pointing me in the right direction with the computer.”

Robin also spends frequent days working with his franchisees in their territories offering them his personal help and providing them with his unequivocal and ongoing relentless support.

The Dolly Char owner says that he works tirelessly day and night for the benefit of his franchisees and will not accept second best.

He says that he is often up into the early hours working on updates for his franchisees’ websites and “tinkering with the SEO as well as advertising their businesses to bring more work their way”. He says nothing is ever  too much trouble for him.

To be a good franchisor

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

I personally think that to be a good franchisor that you must take a personal interest in the success of all of your franchisees by: -

  • Encouraging franchisees on an ongoing basis.
  • Offer your franchisees around the clock 24 hour support where possible.
  • Be prepared to offer hands on support if a franchisee requires your assistance at any time.
  • Offer franchisees extra training if and when they require it.
  • Keep up to date with all new legislation that might apply to your franchise business model.
  • Make yourself easily contactable either by telephone or e-mail by franchisees.
  • Generate business enquiries for your franchisees.
  • Install a feeling of equalness in franchisees so that they all feel part of one big happy family.
  • Continue to grow your brand by the recruitment of new franchisees.

    Can you think of any thing else that could be expected of a good franchisor?

    Dolly Char - Cleaning up in the 21st Century

    Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

    In the UK, the domestic cleaning market has grown substantially over the last few years, and is thought to be worth around £2bn. Although it is hard to pinpoint the exact number of people of working within the industry, the industry itself is vibrant and is always looking for new cleaners. As a society, we are more house proud than ever. Increasingly, we spend a higher proportion of our household income on domestic services and the cleaning products market alone is worth over £500m.

     

    Finding a cleaner is one of the major issues affecting the domestic cleaning industry. In the old days, a local cleaner may have serviced a number of houses on a ‘cash in hand’ basis. Increasingly this is not the case and many households also want a service that is professional and cost effective. Being cash rich and time poor has resulted in an increase in demand, but also an increase in the standards of service demanded.

    Every household has their own individual requirements, but recruiting someone who can fit around those requirements is very hard.  This is one of the reasons behind the growth of domestic cleaning companies. Such companies offer clients the piece of mind that they need, by pre checking cleaners to ensure that they are suitable and trustworthy.

     

    The Dolly Char cleaning franchise was launched in 2005 to service the growing demand for domestic services in the UK.  Dolly Char offers its clients a very professional regular domestic cleaning and ironing service.

     

    Dolly Char (UK) Ltd is owned and run by a husband and wife team Robin and Carol Harrison. According to Robin, the business offers a great service to many people who don’t have the time or the inclination to clean their own homes. ‘Many people now have lifestyles that are becoming increasingly cash rich but time poor. In addition, more people are making the positive decision that they don’t wish to spend their precious weekend and evening leisure time carrying out basic domestic chores – they want to employ someone else to do that. The Dolly Char service provides cleaners on an agency basis which means that we help our clients recruit a suitable individual in line with their specific needs. If at some point in the future their domestic help leaves or the client is unhappy with any aspect of the work then we help to find a replacement. This takes away many of the problems associated with employing people’ says Robin.

     

    With an increasing number of households looking for domestic services, the industry is growing at a rapid rate.  The key issues for many people are quality, reliability and cost. Dolly Char offers a competitive pricing strategy that means their services are affordable by a wider range of people than many other professional cleaning services. Dolly Char is looking for people who can manage a domestic cleaning business that is friendly, local and dedicated to high standards of service.

    Cleaning maids Chesterfield Mr Philip Docherty

    Tuesday, March 31st, 2009
    Dolly Char are proud to announce the arrival of a new franchisee in Mr Philip Docherty who will operate Dolly Char around the Chesterfield and East Sheffield region.
    Phil was born and bred in North East Derbyshire so is very familier with the Sheffield and Chesterfield area.  Having been self employed for sometime Phil has owned and run his own DIY shop.  
    Phil has also worked as an entertainer on the cabaret and club scene.  Phil now writes and records his own music for pleasure.
    In his own words Phil goes on to say, I was looking for a franchise opportunity when I came across Dolly Char.  Although I am always a little wary when considering such offers I was soon put at ease when I met Robin.

    After showing me his tried and tested business plan I decided to take the plunge and now looks forward to working along side him and Carol in this exciting venture.

    Work from home business for sale

    Sunday, March 29th, 2009

    Whoops and double whoops I forgot this is not the high street marketplace where I could advertise an home based business for sale but instead the Dolly Char domestic cleaning blog, please forgive my slip up and except my apology!

    Oh well since I have now realized that this should be a domestic cleaning blog post and not a work from home business for sale advert I suppose I ought to make amends, hmmm what can I think of, oh yes I will give you an idea for a potentially profitable home based hobby business for free instead.

    As spring is in the air and our gardens are beginning to come into bloom have you ever considered the idea of making, painting and selling garden ornaments?, they are very easy to make once you have been furnished with the knowledge!

    All you need to start this home based hobby business are latex moulds, mixing bucket, plywood, cardboard, trowel, Sharp sand, Ordinary Portland cement, water, paint brushes, sponge and paints. An example of what can be achieved without much effort is shown above.

    Once you have manufactured yourself some stock you will then need to find some customers to purchase them from you. I would suggest that you could attend craft fairs, garden fetes and car boot sales. Also many garden centres and aquatic centres will sometimes be willing to take some of your stock on a sale or return basis.
