gcs Hi, how'd this go for you?
I have something I can send you that might help you understand what some of the BIG corporate companies put into their contracts. I actually have a copy of a contract between a current client & their old janitorial provider. If that would help you out let me know.

dublincarpetcleaning Hi

Just because he has 22 restaurants it does not mean that he is special. Maybe he had a great family. The way i see it, i think he needs you more than you need him. When you manage such big businesses, small things can break you down.At that level all business areas have to run smooth. So he or she, has to make sure that you are the man for the job. No superiority or nonsense, but a proper business meeting to see who you are.

Dont be shy. Dont play the victim. For him to be rich, he needs you to be efficient.

I am curious as to how to structure a proposal and meeting with a new client which has 22 restaurants that need service. The relationship I have with them is very strong, however, I have never dealt with any client of this magnitude. Staffing won't be an issue, it's just having a strong contract in place. Should I include:

- time frame? (monthly vs term) I proposed a monthly rate which has worked out great
- client/service provider obligations If your asking should your contract include this tid bit YES, it should
- competitive pricing structure over time? (start lower then work higher as the contract starts running smoothly) Not sure about this, I just included my monthly rate and annually I increase my rate just a bit this keep the customer happy and it keeps me happy
- perhaps bring two proposals to the meeting? (one with supplies/equipment on the client AND/OR the other with supplies/equipment on the service provider) ABSOLUTELY & Include the benefits of using your source for equipment/supplies


I started my cleaning company a year ago, I have 11 clients and 8 part-time staff. We've managed to specialize in high-end luxury clientelle which is fantastic, however, I have a bit of an issue.... All of the clients I have currently are single store locations, aka very simple proposals. If anybody has any resources they could forward me to help out I would greatly appreciate it!


Thanks again,
Our biggest client owns a multitude of facilities nationwide. I was presented with the opportunity to service ALL of their facilities however were just not that big & I do not own a jet :( Also, I need a ton of training in management to feel confident in moving forward with that big of an offer
Anyhow, all the best to you!
