Germinator is an American mobile disinfecting and sanitizing service. The company has provided deodorizing, sanitizing, and disinfecting services and equipment since its founding in 2018. Germinator tries to operate as a state-of-the-art company specializing in providing the tools needed to create a clean, sterile, and hygienic space.

As you run your Germinator franchise, you will work with a professional team to provide hygiene solutions to your community.

Why You May Want To Start a Germinator Franchise

Running a Germinator franchise means you can own your own business and provide an essential service to your community. Your franchise will be responsible for ensuring that people have clean, sanitized, and beautiful spaces with which to operate, whether that be their homes, offices, malls, or other frequented places. As a Germinator franchisee, you may be enabling people to live less stressful lives.

If you are looking for a business opportunity to provide for your family that is also socially conscious, then opening a Germinator may be for you. You could get to wake up and go to bed knowing you helped make people’s lives safer and more comfortable without breaking the bank.

The perfect candidate for a Germinator franchise is passionate about business and making life safer and easier for the community around them.

What Might Make a Germinator Franchise a Good Choice?

Germinator believes it is a company built at the right time. Jeffrey Gill, the founder of Germinator, has already built a tile cleaning franchise and is using that brand to propel Germinator. Due to the timing of its release, Germinator has grown to multiple units since beginning to franchise in 2020 because of the large market demand.

The typical responsibilities of Germinator franchisees include managing a team of well-trained, professional individuals and being a team player. Germinator franchisees may be permitted to run their locations as home or mobile-based business. They also may be able to run their franchise as a part-time business.

Opening a Germinator franchise may offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that could struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry.

How To Open a Germinator Franchise

To be part of the Germinator team, you should make sure you’re financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company’s set net worth and liquid capital requirements. 

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement with Germinator, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Germinator franchising team questions. 

If you are awarded a franchise, you will attend classroom training to learn how to manage day-to-day operations. The corporate franchise team will also support you in helping to set up your business and market to your local community.
