Bar-B-Clean Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


Very low overhead & quick ramp-up time: This is a home-based business so no office space or office related expenses are necessary. In addition, all required equipment will fit in whatever vehicle you are currently using, no need for a company car or truck. Ramp-up time is typically as soon as an agreement is signed and training is completed.

We have a Proprietary Product: We produce our own Stainless Steel Polish and Protectant which will be used by our franchise owners as a promotion in their individual territories. Giving a can to all clients brings instant credibility and brand awareness.

We are the Nation's only Barbecue Cleaning Franchise: Most of our competition is "mom & pop businesses" and a 'business opportunity" competitor who has a small number of locations across the USA.

Huge growth potential: Now is the time! With little to no competition, the opportunities are endless. Not only do homeowners have barbecues, but so do office buildings, homeowners associations, hotels, timeshares, apartment communities, state parks, etc.

Flexible hours: You are in charge of your schedule. Schedule clients around your day to achieve work/life balance.
