Dublcheck introduce Graham Coulston

After retiring from Lancashire Constabulary Graham Coulston started his Dublcheck cleaning services business.

Initial Turnover: £50,000
Current Turnover: £200,000

Dublcheck - Graham CoulstonI retired from Lancashire Constabulary after 30 years.  My final posting was as Chief Superintendent,(Divisional Commander), I was in charge of one of the Forces 6 divisions. The majority of my career spent as a Detective progressing through the ranks to Trained Accredited Hostage Negotiator and Fully Accredited Senior Investigating Officer, receiving numerous commendation awards including a National Criminal Justice Award from the Home Office.

I was seriously interested in franchising as with no previous business experience the statistics for Franchise New Businesses are far better than with your own start up.

My wife and I attended a bfa Exhibition exploring many franchises and spent some time with the friendly Dublcheck Team on their stand. We found ourselves always drawn back to the Dublcheck Franchise.

With The Guaranteed Turnover and Low Investment costs and I felt the Dublcheck concept allowed me to grow into a managed business with flexibility for my family and lifestyle.

I now have a constantly developing successful business and every month I grow in confidence.

I also look back and feel I had so many more transferrable skills than I thought.  To name but three:

  • Dealing with people
  • Attention to detail
  • Quality of service

What Our Franchisees Say

Facing redundancy in my 50s was unsettling. Management franchising opportunities are ideal because it enabled me to utilise my previous management experience. I love the fact that the harder my team and I work, the higher the rewards.Graham

As a franchise it is comforting to know that you’re using somebody else’s name and system with their backing, and what attracted me particularly to Dublcheck was that there was no hard selling involved.Jayne

Starting from Zero 6 years ago and building a business employing 75 people turning over just under 400k has been amazing experience. This is only possible with the superb support from everyone at HQ who have been with me every step of the way next stop £1million.Damon Dieches
