There are so many reason to become a part of the Total Fitouts Family, but here is a few:
When your business carries the Total Fitouts brand, it gives you a significant edge over your competitors as you establish a franchise in your own marketplace. You have the advantage of standout brand recognition and professional marketing materials – the highest standard in the industry.
BRAND BUYING POWER
As a high-growth brand in Australia and New Zealand, more and more suppliers want to associate their brand with ours – giving Total Fitouts leverage with suppliers not normally available to small business operators. These special contract rates for Total Fitouts franchisees are negotiated with state and national suppliers, so wherever you are, you are likely to have access to our great buying power.
PART OF A TEAM
We always say, at Total Fitouts you are in your own business, but not on your own. Once you establish networks in our business you become part of a team with an outstanding range of experience. So when you need advice from someone that has been there before, it is likely we have that person right here – these are people who are your colleagues – team members who can help you to reach the benchmarks you want to see in your own business.
Part of your training and support is our ‘Start-up Program’ where you will learn some keys to business success. Getting consistent business through the door is of key importance to you and to us, that’s why we have developed a number of lead-generation strategies that have been tested and proven in the Total Fitouts business.
Total Fitouts is a sales and marketing driven business and from time to time you will receive leads through our corporate or state offices, some of which will progress to quote stage and then to delivery.
However, you will also learn the art and science of lead generation for your own business – something that most operators in our market don’t understand. When you learn how to implement these important, but simple strategies, you will see how a business that works with our lead-generation model can increase it’s success rate significantly.
LEADING-EDGE COMPUTER SYSTEMS
We believe our project-based computer systems are the best in the industry. Not only do they create a highly professional and efficient image to our customers, they are designed to help you keep your business on track and running smoothly.
Our innovative systems cover lead generation through to estimating, job management, invoicing, scheduling and accounting. Total Fitouts has invested heavily in these systems, and they are the envy of the industry.
Risk Minimisation is a critical part of running a profitable and hassle-free business, yet it’s an area that is so commonly overlooked. Total Fitouts has a close relationship with one of the best in the business when it comes to Contract Documentation (Terms of Trade) and Credit Control.
TERMS OF TRADE
Having clear terms and conditions of trade is another key component to ensure the smooth running of your business. From website terms covering the use of your business site, to payment terms making all due dates and amounts explicit and clear, the right Terms of Trade can make a huge difference to your bottom line.
PERSONAL PROPERTIES SECURITIES ACT (PPSA)
For peace-of-mind it is important to be aware of the PPSA – but you don’t have to be an expert – we have the right contacts that will make sure you are a secured creditor ‘just in case’. This simply means that if a client gets into financial difficulty, you will be a preferred creditor and paid before anyone who isn’t (even before the ATO).
LOW INITIAL BUY-IN AND NO ON-GOING FIXED FRANCHISE FEES
Total Fitouts is one of the best franchisors in the franchise industry when it comes to the initial cost of buying a franchise and on-going fixed fees. At Total Fitouts there is NO continuous fixed franchise fee.
Your initial invest is only $45,000, with a non-refundable deposit of $1650 that is required to secure your area until final agreements are prepared.
Our very competitive on-going franchise and marketing fee is paid monthly, based ONLY on sales invoiced, it’s NOT a fixed monthly fee that has to be paid even when you are starting up.
Our franchise fee is 5% and our marketing fee is 1%.
The total of 6% is always built into the job cost, so it is automatically factored into the invoice and makes it simple and easy at the end of the day.
WHO IS BEHIND TOTAL FITOUTS?
Most of our Total Fitouts directors are also directors of two of the most successful brands in the home building and home renovations industries. Their experience is just part of Total Fitouts success.
