If you’ve ever considered starting your own Jim’s Group franchise, you may have found yourself feeling overwhelmed by all the information out there. Before starting any business, it’s important to do your research. We’ve put together this page so you can find the answers to some of our most commonly asked questions with ease.

A Jim’s franchise belongs to the wider Jim’s Group network, however, each franchise operates as a semi-autonomous business. Franchisees are responsible for running the day-to-day operations of their business, while their franchisors are on hand to provide them with ongoing support and mentoring. Read more about the Jim’s Group franchise model here.

You might be surprised to learn that Jim’s Group has over 50 service divisions across its portfolio! New divisions are launched regularly, so our company is constantly growing.

At the end of the day, the answer to this is a highly individual one. The best way to figure out which division is right for you is to think about what you enjoy doing and where your skills lie. For example, if you enjoy working outdoors and working with your hands, perhaps a Mowing or Fencing franchise would be the best fit for you.

This is a question we get asked frequently, so we’ve written an article to help you come to a decision.

Absolutely. You can certainly take an existing business and rebrand it as a Jim’s franchise.

It’s no secret that starting a business can be very difficult. However, you’re much more likely to succeed under a franchise model because you have the backing of an existing brand and an established model. Statistics show that around 90-95% of cleaning and gardening businesses fail within the first year. At Jim’s, that number drops down to 11%.

At Jim’s, we call our Master Franchises ‘Regional Franchises’. Our regional franchisors are responsible for providing support to their region, whilst also contributing to the growth of their region. To become a regional franchisor, the first step is to reach out and express your interest. These positions are highly sought after, so get in touch to learn more.

Community is a big part of our ethos. Although Jim’s Group is a large company, we encourage our franchisees to establish a good reputation and presence within their local communities.

Owning a Jim’s franchise allows you to achieve the perfect work-life balance. Our franchisees are given the opportunity and freedom to set their own hours, take time off when they want, and to grow and develop their very own business in their own time.
