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.

She is allergic to dust

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

We saw an elderly prospective client a couple of weeks ago and as is my way with the elderly and vulnerable i spend as long as it takes for them to fully understand the way that we work and how our charges are paid.

 

After telling me that he already had a cleaner I asked what the problem was. “She is a young lady and she is allergic to dust” funny you may think, but then he insisted on showing me allergic-to-dust-pompeiiaround and when we got to the separate toilet I opened the door and he said “she doesn’t do toilets, maybe she had a bad experience in the past” I was stuck for words and thought well here goes I’ll lift the lid, guess what? The loo was spotless, not bad for a gentleman in his late ninety’s. Anyway back to the cleaner, she was charging him £10 per hour with no insurance; he rang us up the other day and asked us to find him a cleaner, which we have so the only person not happy is his previous cleaner.

The lesson here is to go to a reputable company with insurance and not just pick a number off a notice board, you don’t know who you might end up getting!

Franchise arrangements are often called chain stores

Friday, September 18th, 2009

Franchise arrangements are often called chain stores.

Franchising (from the French for honesty or freedom) is a method of doing business wherein a franchisor licenses trademarks and tried and provenFranchise business methods of doing business to a franchisee in exchange for a recurring payment, and usually a percentage piece of gross sales or gross profits as well as the annual fees. Various tangibles and intangibles such as national or international advertising, training, and other support services are commonly made available by the franchisor, and may indeed be required by the franchisor, which generally requires audited books, and may subject the franchisee or the outlet to periodic and surprise spot checks. Failure of such tests typically involve non-renewal or cancellation of franchise rights.

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.
