"GeoAnalyser provides us with indispensable information that our Franchise Owners need to grow their businesses."

The Problem

The success of MOLLY MAID to date, combined with a market with almost infinite possibilities for growth means they have ambitious growth targets for the future. In order to achieve these targets they needed to identify where their core base of target customer households are and to pin point where they lived and to divide the country up into exclusive areas with a minimum of 12,000 target customer households in each area available to be awarded to new Franchise Owners.

The Solution

The first stage in the screening process is to establish where prospective MOLLY MAID Franchise Owners are thinking of setting up their business is in an available area, using GeoAnalyser to assist in this process. The second stage is to establish if the area has sufficient numbers of target customer households upon which to build a MOLLY MAID business.

The Benefits

  • Eliminated guesswork involved in Franchise location
  • Improved targeting of prospective customers
  • Improved efficiency in travel time between cleans
  • Enables Franchisors to identify trends, anomalies and opportunities
