Say 'hello' to our new Live Chat function

If you’re thinking about becoming your own boss and getting into a franchise, you’ll probably have a lot of questions - and we encourage that, because doing your research is crucial.
With over 1100 franchise brands in Australia, you’re really spoilt for choice! But having so much on offer can also lead to confusion. Which is why it’s more important than ever to ask a ton of questions so you can make absolutely sure that you choose the franchise business that’s perfect for you.
Questions like these
- What type of business can you see yourself owning?
- What type of work would you be happy doing?
- What’s most important to you?
These are the sort of questions that Darryl Townsend, of Albury had, after being retrenched from his team leader job in a factory.
The long hours of other types of franchises did not appeal
‘I had previously considered coffee and takeaway franchises, but they didn’t appeal to me as I knew the hours involved were long,’ said Darryl. Helping his mum out with cleaning when he was younger led to him checking out cleaning franchises, and V.I.P. was at the top of the list.
After his initial discussion with V.I.P. Darryl was quick to say yes to a Franchise Experience where he got hands-on and was able to get all his questions answered. After that, it was a no-brainer.
'I have my evenings back and my weekends free again.'
Darren chose a V.I.P. Home Cleaning franchise for the hours, the flexibility and the constant support. He’s run his V.I.P. Home Cleaning franchise in Albury/Wodonga for 11 years now and has 7 staff working with him.
We’re here to support our franchisees
At V.I.P. our Live Chat Online function is an extension of the support that we’ve always been proud to offer our franchisees.
