Kevin White, of Environmental Touch is a man on a mission. The Army veteran is one of Coverall’s 8,000 independent Franchised Business Owners, who are pursuing their dream of business ownership.
An entrepreneur at heart, White wanted the freedom and flexibility that came with being an independent business owner and sought the support of an established company in a growing industry. He realized a commercial cleaning franchise may be the right fit for him.
White’s wife and a few family members mentioned Coverall. The veteran did his research, saw the demand for professional cleaning services in his community, and the value Coverall brings to its Franchised Business Owners. The icing on the cake was learning that as one of the country’s top veteran-friendly franchise businesses, Coverall extends a military discount of up to 10% off to veterans looking to start their own business.
The military experience White and other veterans gain serving the country make them a great fit to become franchisees. As vetfran.com says, “The ability to follow procedure and work under pressure are core to fighting for the country and managing a franchise.” That helps explain why White is among the thousands of veterans in the U.S. who are now independent franchised business owners.
“I received a lot of information on all aspects of running a commercial cleaning business,” said White. “Coverall offers billing support and training on its Core 4® Process, which helps me run my business and support my clients.” Starting with an initial customer base was invaluable to White, who found growing his business and managing the finances to be two of the biggest challenges in prior companies.
Like many new business owners, White and his family members did all the work. Within six months, White began hiring employees to help keep up with new client demand. White credits Coverall with giving him the opportunity to achieve his goals with a company that has a proven track record.
