  2. 2. Editor’s Note n today’s highly competitive business world, Ifranchising has emerged as a popular concept. Businesses are increasingly engaging in franchising to increase profits and to deliver excellent products and services to the customers. It is a booming phenomenon which is transcending borders and connecting nations and companies. The prominent franchises are spreading their wings across the globe. They are providing their products and services to clients worldwide efficiently and without any delay or inconvenience. Franchising brings along a variety of advantages to both franchisors and franchisees. This is one of the main reasons why it has been so successful worldwide. It allows franchisors to expand their company faster than they could otherwise. A company may grow slowly owing to lack of funds and workers. However, in case of franchising, a franchisor must invest very little capital or labour because both are supplied by the franchisee.

Franchising helps companies to raise money without selling the shares of their companies. Franchisees face less risk, as they do not have to start a business from scratch, and they are affiliated to a renowned company. The franchisors are experienced in the field of business and possess national or regional recognition. They also educate the franchisees about their years in business through management assistance and training and with various marketing support and advantages. Franchisors usually conduct regional or national marketing campaigns and help franchisees to run local ad campaigns. However, franchisees have to contribute a certain amount of their gross profits to advertising funds. These aspects of franchise agreements can significantly contribute towards the success of an outlet. Franchisors also sometimes assist franchisees to obtain funds for their outlets and prepare business plans and strategies. Additionally, some reputed franchisors can help franchisees with obtaining loans from financial institutions. The leading franchises are delivering high-quality products and services throughout the world. They are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that their clients are satisfied. They are embracing innovation and excellence to deliver lasting customer experiences.

  10. 10. The mobile phone has changed the world in a way we had never imagined. In a matter of probably 25 to 30 years, our daily lives have started depending on our mobile devices for every possible need of ours. In the same way the small icon of the Amazon App on our mobile devices signal the world’s largest mega store to us and the Uber App signifies availability of a cab for us at every corner of this Earth, Cleanomatics is building an all-pervasive solution to every cleaning and laundry work – the need of today’s consumers. Cleanomatics started disrupting the laundry services industry a couple of years back and then went on to disrupt the housekeeping industry by onboarding the entire eco-system of equipment, chemicals and service providers on their tech platform to look after all the cleaning and laundry needs of the urban consumers. These consumers stay in the large urban centres and lead a professionally and socially active lifestyle which leaves them with no time for their household chores. Cleanomatics, through its extensive network of Laundry and Cleaning Service Providers offers a world of doorstep services to these consumers and becomes one of the most favourite apps on their mobile devices. The biggest benefit of joining Cleanomatics as a Franchise is that sales is never a cause of worry. Sales leads keep coming daily at regular intervals through a revolutionary online Lead Management Tool used by the company. All that a franchise need
  11. 11. to do is stick to the SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures) given by the company and convert these sales leads and provide a delightful service experience to the consumers. Along with this, the franchise gets a complete 360 * talent recruitment assistance and a superior world class training program to hit the operating break even mark at the shortest possible time frame. The Voyage Cleanomatics started its journey in the hotbed of world-renowned high technology start-ups like Apple, Google, Salesforce.com, Slack and Tesla at the legendary Silicon Valley around San Francisco Bay Area in California in USA. The founding team of Cleanomatics noticed a huge pain area of the urban consumers staying within large condominiums, housing complexes and gated communities. The busy lifestyles of these urban populace make it very difficult for them to find time for household chores. They also do not want to depend on domestic help for their chores. Hence, they are always on the lookout for reliable on-demand doorstep service providers who can give them reliable high-quality cleaning and household service at their doorsteps at the pre-appointed time. With the advent of Covid-19 the whole world got shaken up by an unprecedented pandemic. The enhanced requirement for cleaning, laundry and sanitising services necessitated the creation of an intelligent consumer tech platform which makes access to high quality service providers super easy. Hence the founders embarked on creating Cleanomatics and vowed to make it the Uber of the cleaning and sanitising industry. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, USA with the Indian HQ at Noida near Delhi. Source of Inspiration The Founder/CEO of Cleanomatics, Abhra Banerjee is a Master’s in Economics from the Delhi School of Economics and an alumnus of XLRI and the U C Berkeley Haas School of Business. Abhra has a 25-year experience in reputed corporates like ICI Plc, The Times of India, Airtel and Havells India Ltd at various C level positions before turning into a Silicon Valley Entrepreneur. Abhra identified a glaring demand gap when his elder son left the safety net of the family and went to his college hostel to pursue his dreams and career. There, his son Apratim found himself at a complete loss when it came to his laundry and cleaning needs at an affordable price. In order to solve the problem of his college going son’s hygiene and cleaning needs, Abhra started Cleanomatics, a reliable consumer tech mobile first platform which makes access to high quality service providers of laundry and household chores really easy and affordable. Plethora of Services “We are a mobile first Consumer Tech Company. We pride ourselves on having a technology platform which makes it very easy to access quality housekeeping and laundry services at the click of a mobile phone button by the city dwellers staying in large condominiums and gated

And one prominent name among such innovative and contemporary early age education providers is Pebbles Preschool. “Pebbles Pre-School was founded in the year 2000, when Chennai was still contemplating about the need of preschools in the society. Even though Chennai had bunch of day care centers, a typical preschool that caters to the overall development of kids below five years was a distant dream,” says Mr. Kennedy Nesamoney, the CEO of Pebbles Pre-School. Currently Pebbles has outlets in Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. In the following interview with Insights Success, Mr. Kennedy shares brief insights about his preschool and how it has gained a stronghold within the early age education market. Below are the highlights of the interview: What aspect and offerings make Pebbles Pre-School stand apart from your competitors? The city of Chennai is known for its hot and humid weather. To cope up with such tough conditions and make the students feel comfortable inside the playschool, the management had air- conditioned all the classrooms in the establishment way back in 2000. By doing so, Pebbles became the first preschool in Chennai, with air- conditioned classrooms. At Pebbles, the classrooms are fitted out with everything to the child’s scale, allowing them to be independent of adults. They have also maintained a healthy child–teacher ratio, thereby ensuring more care and individual attention to the child. Teachers’ skills play a strong role in influencing the child’s power to grasp and learn concepts. At Pebbles Preschool, teachers are trained in the best possible way and ensure that they are completely prepared for their responsibilities. However, handling the kids in real scenarios is much tougher than earning educational qualifications and attending trainings. Kids need more caring and warm approach. In the classrooms of Pebbles, one can clearly see that magical approach with massive assistance from the highly experienced support staff. Along with that, the management regularly conducts in-service trainings and information about the latest trends Pebbles Pre-School Sculpting Young Intellecuals The 10 Most Popular Franchise to Have a Look At www.insightssuccess.in 26 | JANUARY 2021

It helps children to achieve complete school readiness in all areas of academic and social learning. What are the key attributes that helped Pebbles to overcome the challenges in its initial phase? The preschool concept being in its initial stage of development in 2000 was a bit challenging for us unlike how it is today. Joint families were the order of the day. There used to be people at home to take care of the little ones like grandparents, uncles and aunts, and mothers who did not have a career to take care of. We were able to overcome this by educating parents on the importance of preschool education for kids. We were also able to instill confidence in the parents by providing a safe and hygienic environment and qualified trained staff to take care of the child. Today things are different, there are many nuclear families where both parents work and nobody at home to take care of the little ones and hence there is a dire need for quality preschools. What are the benefits gained by parents and franchisees while choosing to be a part of the Pebbles family? Parents benefit by enrolling their kids in a school that has a proven track record of catering to little ones for almost 2 decades. Our teaching methods and curriculum imparts attention, advanced language skills forming the basis for reading and writing, getting accustomed to structure and scheduled activities and social skills. Franchisees benefit by partnering with a renowned brand that has an experience of almost 2 decades. We have a very well-prepared in-house curriculum that focuses on all facets of a child's growth, manuals to assist them in day-to-day operation and complete training and support to run the outlet at very affordable rates. What are the key points that you consider while choosing or getting in talks with a potential franchisee? • Passion to run a playschool, willingness to invest and sustain till it becomes profitable. • Understanding the advantage of taking up a franchise over setting up one on their own. • Looking for long term association for mutual benefits. What would be your advice for the budding startups and entrepreneurs in the industry? The Playschool industry is not a bed of roses as most people would think. It needs a lot of passion and dedication. It is also not like a restaurant where one can put in money today and expect results tomorrow. Playschools usually flourish over a period of time and most of the business happens through word of mouth. It is also a very sensitive industry as we have to take up the responsibility of handling little ones. Brief us about what are going to be Pebbles’ future prospective. Pebbles is a 20-year-old brand. Very few players in this industry have a foundation that dates back 20 years. With this strong base we would be moving forward in a phased manner by extending our franchise across India as an affordable high-quality brand. We have a very well-prepared in-house curriculum that focuses on all facets of a child’s growth “ “ Kennedy Nesamoney CEO www.insightssuccess.in JANUARY 2021 | 27

This makes things easier for the franchisees, and they feel the confidence to take the franchise ahead confidently. Franchise businesses have a less risk factor Every business has its own set of risks. However, opening a franchise is less challenging than starting a business afresh. A franchise already has an existing and proven business model and is known by the audience. Hence, a franchisee can carry out sufficient background searches before signing any contracts. A major advantage of franchises is that it requires less time, efforts, and investment. Moreover, franchisees can also acquire financial figures from the franchisors. This, in turn, provides entrepreneurs a heads up about what to expect from the business. The Option of Researching the Business’s Viability A franchise offers entrepreneurs an opportunity to apply their analytical skills and research about the sustainability of the business. For any franchisee, the most important aspect is the confidence that the new investment will succeed. Moreover, for many business owners, previous experiences play a key role in building strong networks, use their connections well, and open doors which were not opened previously. Franchise Businesses have better Scope of Succeeding It is a known fact that franchise businesses perform better than a start-up business. This is because, the franchisor has already created awareness regarding his brand and has further accomplished the recall successfully. However, entrepreneurs must determine how much they would have to invest, the risk factors, and must develop a deep understanding of the required initial investment. Before shaking things up and introducing major changes into the existing products, franchisees must preserve the brand. They should develop a sense of belongingness among the employees and earn their loyalty. This will, in turn, build a great team, develop respect and understanding among the employees, and offer excellent training and development to the staff. This will help in building the passion for the brand among the employees. - Ananda Kamal Das www.insightssuccess.in 30 | JANUARY 2021
