Posted 04/04/2017 : By: Debbie Dennis
VIP Bin Cleaning are pleased to announce they have awarded the Master Licence for Norway to Joachim Martinsen and Petter Arntzen and the new business will be launched in Oslo in April 2017. Joachim and Petter first contacted VIP Bin Cleaning in November 2016, and after regular telephone conversations between both parties they accepted VIP’s invitation for them to visit the UK in early January 2017. During this visit, Joachim and Petter met the VIP team, saw first-hand how the business operated, witnessed the design and manufacturing of the VIP Bin Cleaning machinery and gained a good overall understanding of the company. Both parties were suitably impressed with each other, the deal was agreed, and they returned to the UK in March when they completed their initial training programme.
Petter who is 29 years old comes from the entertainment and restaurant industry and was responsible for the hospitality sector at MESH in Oslo. MESH was the first co working space in Oslo and has become the leading independent initiative for Norwegian entrepreneurs.
Joachim has worked for several years in the windscreen industry in Oslo where part of his responsibility was to recruit, train and support franchisees so he has extensive knowledge of the franchise industry.
Joachim and Peter have been friends for many years and both identified that in the last couple of years there has been significant focus placed on environmental and recycling issues in Norway. This is especially evident in the strictness now witnessed regarding the cleaning and the removal of smells and odours from bins and trash cans.
They recognised bin cleaning would be become very important in Norway and decided to research the web to see what was happening in other countries. This is when they came across VIP Bin Cleaning and realised this was the company which fitted their requirements perfectly. Joachim realised that VIP Bin Cleaning ticked all his needs as far as franchising was concerned – strong, recognisable and reputable brand -multi award winning in various aspects of their business – and with proven systems and processes in place.
Petter and Joachim together could also see that VIP has for 20 years, put significant emphasis on being environmentally friendly with the way they operate as well as their cleaning products -VIP has also successfully launched their business and brand in 10 countries around the world – and the icing on the cake for them was the quality of the build and operating capabilities of the bespoke and unique VIP Bin Cleaning machinery.
With their knowledge of Norway and the information they have of the industry coupled with the VIP name, support and machinery, they are very confident of establishing the business in Oslo before progressing to the rest of Norway.
VIP Bin Cleaning was very impressed with Joachim and Petter in their personalities and desire to be successful in Norway and the strong relationship built by everyone in a relatively short period.
VIP would like to welcome Joachim and Petter to the company and to wish them the very best in this new venture for them in Norway.
