To become an Oltco Franchisee you will need to jump through a few hoops. You’ll want to get to know us too, we’ll be working together for a long time and making a big commitment to each other. We need to trust each other and enjoy working together.
Initially you will need to fill in forms and a questionnaire, which will help us assess the viability of your financial situation and work ethic.
You will then go through a series of interviews to see how your personality and communication skills will fit with our company.
We would expect the Franchisee selection process to take between 3 and 6 months in total.
During this time Oltco Franchise is on hand to answer any questions you have. It’s a good opportunity for you to research your area and start planning how to begin your local marketing campaign.
You will undergo a minimum of 2 weeks intensive training at our head quarters in Cornwall (All travel & accommodation costs will need to be covered by you).
Followed by continuous support and evaluation of your progress to make sure you have every opportunity to meet your self initiated targets.
This meeting will take place at Oltco Head Office and will give you a feel for the way we work and our ethos. You will meet the directors and can discuss any final questions before hopefully being offered a franchise.
You will be given all the facts and figures you require to go away and produce a business plan including your own targets and projected profit which we will go through with you afterwards to help ensure your figures are realistic. You may find this certificate on the BFA website helpful while putting together your business plan. It also gives you a comprehensive understanding of Franchise ownership. https://www.thebfa.org/join-a-franchise/prospect-franchisee-certificate/
After being offered an Oltco franchise you will receive your installation and sales training in Newquay. You will have in house training in the head office but will also join our local team on jobs to get hands on training. You will attend site visits to gain valuable training on our proven sales process. During this visit you will meet your Account Manager who will be your personal point of contact at any time during the working week. They will support you continuously and will help with any questions you may have. You will need to pay for your own accommodation, travel and food when attending these courses.
