- ABOUT FRANCHISE BUSINESS – In general
Franchising is most often defined as a system of cooperation and mutual business relations between independent companies connected by a franchise agreement. Franchising occurs when a company/owner of products and services (franchisor) provides an opportunity to a particular person or group (franchisee) to distribute its products or services, use its name and logo, as well as the business system, while the franchisee is committed to operate under well-defined conditions.
The franchisor transfers to the franchisee its already proven business system, brand, manuals, equipment, training, experience and support services. The franchisor has certain control over the way the franchisee does business. In return, the franchisee pays the franchisor an initial fee for using the brand name and mode of operation.
The form of business offered by the franchise is the closest guarantee of success in today’s market. Franchising provides a safer start-up and a greater likelihood of success than independent business.
All research has shown that starting a business in the franchise system fails very rarely, and when that happens, the most common reason is that the franchisee did not adequately follow the business system principles and procedures. Another reason why it is wise to buy a franchise is that its financial aspect can be thoroughly researched before having high-cost demands. When you start a business on your own, you always do it with certain risk.
The franchisor, together with its franchisees creates the franchise network and it is its responsibility to ensure the operation and growth of the network. Thanks to the common brand, the franchise network quickly builds its identity and reputation.
The franchisee must keep in mind the following:
- it must respect the relationship with the franchisor determined by the contract
- it must not in any way compromise the reputation of the network, i.e. all other franchisees
- it must not betray its customers’ trust, because by doing so it does not harm only itself but the entire network

DC offers two types of franchise packages.
By accessing this type of franchise package, you operate under our name within only one business unit. This is the most common form of franchising business and it implies that a single DC machine is used in your engine decarbonization shop, adjusted to DC franchise standards. Your staff will receive complete and detailed training in the use of the DC machine, all operational processes and the presentation of the activity itself.
Master franchises represent franchise rights that mainly imply exclusivity in a larger territory and often in the entire country and region, and also represent the obligation to sell sub-franchises and create your own branch network.
In addition to its own DC service, the master franchisee manages the DC service network in its territory and is responsible for their operation and compliance with the standards of the franchisor.
In addition to the standard training related to the process of engine decarbonization and operating the DC machine, the training for master franchisees includes the following areas:
- Basics regarding management in DC engine decarbonization shop
- How to “fight” the competition?
- How to select, train and organize work of DC team members?
- WHAT KIND OF COOPERATION DO WE OFFER?

If we have attracted your attention and you want to become a member of the DC family, the next step would be to project the costs of starting a business, consider the current financial situation and funding opportunities. Before you start with a franchise, you need to determine how much money will be needed to open it and whether you can afford it or not.
Minimum future revenue projection. Remember that there is no automatic correlation between starting a franchise and the fact how profitable it will be. The investment needed is just an index regarding how much it takes to get started, not what the job will be like when it actually starts. Regardless of the full support you will have from the franchisor on a daily basis and marketing activities that will include the promotion of each franchise unit in addition to the brand itself, the success of the business depends on you.
