Case Study

The pandemic-proof home services brand Fantastic Services

The U.K.’s fastest-growing franchisor is determined to set foot in at least 70 countries in the next five years, and it all starts now

When the COVID-19 crisis struck around the world, many companies saw a dark future for the global economy and many businesses felt doomed. Co-founders of Fantastic Services, Anton Skarlatov and Rune Sovndahl, however, saw nothing but opportunity.

An unbreakable business

“COVID-19 just proved our business unbreakable. It determined that Fantastic Services is here to stay,” said Fantastic Services co-founder and CEO Anton Skarlatov. “The coronavirus outbreak forced us to rapidly develop and launch new, more lucrative sub-services, which turned out to be a great success.”

While many companies shrunk in size over the past two years, Fantastic Services did not just remain unscathed by the pandemic but grew immensely. With 34 area development franchisees in the U.K. alone, two master franchisees in Ireland and Hungary, and over 860 franchising units across Europe and Australia, Fantastic Services has never been bigger.

“Brexit has hit many industries hard, with many skilled workers returning to mainland Europe. Even in the property maintenance sector, this was a big challenge. Thankfully, our business model and technology systems have enabled us to schedule and manage demand effectively. As a result, we have grown our franchise network by 10 per cent in 2021,” said co-founder Rune Sovndahl.

This year, the U.K.’s leading property maintenance franchise is preparing to take a foothold in the United States – one of the biggest and most demanding markets.

A committed franchise partner

But why is Fantastic Services such a lucrative business partner? Julian and Lucy Fernando, two of its franchisees, provide some insight:

“We were extremely impressed with the technology and level of support. The whole team of Fantastic Services keeps in touch, helps us daily, and it has been an exciting journey.”

With their 13 years of experience and know-how, Fantastic Services is genuinely a needle in a haystack as a partner. Mainly because you needn’t know anything about the property maintenance business to start your own successful franchising business.

All you need is the desire to take your life into your own hands, the itch to learn from the best, and the ambition to be the best at what you do. However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Becoming Fantastic Services’ newest partner will give you access to its state-of-the-art CRM and all of its £20m-worth technology solutions.

The best part – you won’t have to take on this cutthroat £54.5bn industry alone. On the contrary, you will have a team of over 500 experts by your side, working day and night for your success.

Now, Fantastic Services offers you the opportunity to become part of their winning team. By becoming an area developer or a master franchisee, you can take your future into your own hands. All it takes is just a single call.
