Truck Washing Franchise Gives Entrepreneurs Opportunity to Soak Up Demand in Untapped Segment
June 23, 2017 // Franchising.com // MELBOURNE, Fla. – Led by an ambitious millennial entrepreneur, Fleet Clean is emerging as the frontrunner in the mobile commercial vehicle washing segment, saturating markets throughout the United States with new franchise locations serving pent-up demand.
Tapping into a niche service in a recession-proof industry, Fleet Clean has grown at more than a 40 percent annual rate since its inception in 2009. The company recently announced franchise expansion plans throughout the Sun Belt states and into the northern regions of the United States for the anticipated harsh winter. The booming franchise was founded by Scott Marr, who saw so much potential in the truck washing business that he gave up a promising career in banking at age 20 to establish Fleet Clean.
“Trucks will always be necessary for businesses to deliver their product into the hands of consumers, and companies want their trucks to present a clean image. The combination of those factors makes our industry uniquely loaded with opportunity,” said Scott Marr, the now 27-year-old CEO of Fleet Clean. “We’re responding to the growing demand by delivering convenient, high-quality washes and timely service for businesses with trucks across the country.”
Each Fleet Clean rig is equipped with its own water, generator, pressure washers, soap dispensers, brushes, tools and water reclamation equipment, with customers only needing to supply the dirty vehicle. Fleet Clean is built to be detailed, efficient, effective, and friendly while placing a strong emphasis on protecting the environment with green processes.
Committed to helping franchisees from various backgrounds succeed, Fleet Clean franchisees serve highly scalable areas that cover nearly 50 miles of territory per location. Franchisees are fully backed with home office support, which includes a sales team that creates recurring new business for franchisees in specific locations.
“We take on the marketing, sales, invoicing and customer support so that our franchisees can focus on opening the business and providing clients with pristine service,” Marr said.
The company offers a unique refranchising opportunity to help new franchisees overcome the “fear factor” of launching a new business. With a letter of intent and initial payment, the corporate team will open a unit in the market, get it up and running and sell the business to the franchisee. “The program is ideal for those in the corporate world who might not be ready to up and leave their job. It eases them in with the peace of mind of a turnkey opportunity,” he added.
Serving more than 1,000 businesses in 18 states, Fleet Clean is committed to providing the best service possible with centralized accounting and customer support system so that its clients get immediate satisfaction no matter what. The company employs technology to simplify processes while ensuring they are protecting the world by reducing use of paper, reclaiming water, and using environmentally safe products.
Today, Fleet Clean has 22 franchises and six corporate locations. The company is expected to open seven more locations by the end of 2017 and is looking to continue its expansion throughout the United States, primarily in the Southeast and Midwest, along with major cities such as Chicago and Indianapolis. Fleet Clean is seeking single and multi-unit operators for expansion and has an initial franchisee fee that can range from $25,000-$75,000.
