Founded in 1991 from its headquarters in Mold, North Wales, Jackson Fire & Security now have 12 franchisees operating throughout Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire, Yorkshire, the Midlands, Cambridgeshire, London and Surrey. They have earned a reputation as an industry leader when it comes to securing business premises with state-of-the-art fire and security systems.
Office and Facilities Managers are forced to seek out and manage a host of suppliers for reliable fire safety and security services. They need solutions and they would be delighted to find theirs from a single, professional, reliable provider.
Jackson Fire & Security make their lives and jobs easier by providing these services to the highest standards from just one reliable source. You benefit immediately from their NSI and NACOSS Gold standard accreditations for fire and security. Jackson Fire & Security have been providing fire and security solutions to businesses for over two decades.
This is a management franchise whereby the franchisee manages the operation of the business whilst relying on his or her employees to carry out the work required to deliver the service.
A franchisee's role is varied but focused on sales and business development. A technical fire and security engineer is employed from day one to do the more hands on work. This leaves franchisees to focus on growing their business. They will attend networking events, sales meetings and identify other sales prospects on a weekly basis. They will survey and quote for maintenance contracts or installations and project manage and administer new contracts.
The Jackson Fire & Security Franchise opportunity allows you to run your business from home. They recommend you have a separate office space at home in addition to a small storage area for stock.
Every organisation operating from premises must install and maintain fire safety equipment – this is a legal requirement. The majority of these organisations also seek to protect their premises with a range of security solutions. All this equipment will need regular servicing providing franchisees with multiple streams of repeat revenue.
The franchise package includes a comprehensive training package which is a mixture of in-house training and industry training from external accredited bodies.
There is also an extensive marketing launch package which includes telemarketing, email marketing, website management and search engine optimisation and public relations.
Franchise territories are split up using postcode sectors and each territory has access to over 20,000 businesses. This does not include additional public sector and local authority buildings.
Territory sizes have been carefully determined to provide each franchise owner the opportunity of developing a business of at least the same size as the Franchisors current business.
The franchise fee is £39,500 plus VAT. This includes your license fee, training fee, stock and equipment, delivery of liveried and ply-lined vehicle (deposit paid), accreditations and your marketing launch campaign.
They recommend you have a £30,000 working capital provision to cover the cost of your engineer’s salary and any other business expenses in your first few months.
Franchisees will need to be comfortable in the B2B environment and have previous sales and account management experience.
I believe the main benefit of being a Jackson franchisee is the professional website we have behind us, it allows customers to contact us in a professional manner and get all the information they need before they pick up the phone.Kris Milner, Leeds Franchisee
