FRANCHISE SUCCESS MANAGER
With close to 70 franchise territories and just shy of 20,000 homes revamped, Spray-Net is the home-improvement franchise that’s changing the way homeowners renovate. Thanks to our patented weather-adjustable paint process and proprietary chemistry, Spray-Net has reverse-engineered the factory painting process to deliver a factory finish directly on-site. In as little as a day, every project results in a beautiful, long-lasting factory finish that won’t peel and at a fraction of the cost of replacement, Spray-Net is the most cost-effective way to modernize a home and boost property value. Spray-Net has been part of the fastest-growing Canadian companies from 2017 to 2020 and featured in Entrepreneur, Forbes, Franchise Times and on HGTV. Spray-Net has been named in the top 50 best companies in the country to work for in its category and most recently named as the #1 global emerging brand voted by over 3000 franchise executives at the International Franchise Association annual convention.

A DAY IN THE LIFE:
Here is a link to our 10-step training process: https://spraynet.live/trainingprogram
This is what a typical onboarding process will look like:
– Road Map review with franchisees: Mainly through biweekly calls, along with the aid of our project management software, you will guide them in getting all the logistics set up for their business along with making sure they go through all our online training. Usually, 30-60 minutes biweekly gets this done.
– 3-day Virtual Initial Training Session: You will be giving some sessions here and getting involved as an important member of our team. The main sessions you might facilitate are paint systems, selling, estimating/Spray-Network, hiring and recruiting.
– 2-day Hands on Pre-Selling: This was part 2 of our initial training week. This was a great team building / learning event for our ten first US franchisees. We get a small job done where they touch different aspects of production to help them sell. You will eventually drive these on your own.
– Pre-Production Training: We cover Teambuilding, Spray-Network (our proprietary software), Production 101 and production planning. You would drive some of these sessions. Key training session to get production set up for success. Right people in right seats, equipment ready and client properly scheduled.
– Production Training: Eventually you would be running your own production training sessions when you are ready to do so. These are key to set the pace for their 1st year and a great way to build open and strong relationships with your franchisees. Everything is covered here from customer service, quality control, production strategy and Spray-Network.
