COVID-19 Pandemic: Best Practices For Franchise Owners To Tackle Coronavirus

During the COVID-19 pandemic, if you and your loved ones still have your health, then you’re luckier than many. But business is also important. How do you maintain your health and your business in the times of COVID-19?

The Best Practice For Many Businesses During COVID-19 Is Simply To Shut Down. Some Businesses Can’t Afford To Do This. And Other Businesses Must Remain Open. Windshields Still Crack During A Pandemic.

With people practicing social-distancing and self-isolation, many aren’t going out anymore. And that’s good; it will help reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, it could be detrimental for business. On the other hand, people are taking public transit less, so when they do go out, they are driving more. This could result in an uptick in calls for windshield repair. Only time will tell.

The decision to remain open or close is yours as a NOVUS franchisee. Look at the health of your business and the health of you and your family and decide what’s best. Regardless, there will be people who still need windshield repair and replacement. If you’re going to provide the services they need, what is the safest way to do so?

Best Practices For Mobile Windshield Repair And Replacement Franchise Owners:

A mobile windshield repair franchise might have a few advantages when it comes to avoiding COVID-19. As a mobile franchise owner, you meet your clients where they are: their homes, their offices, grocery store parking lots, the side of the highway, etc. You can still meet them and fix their windshields. Many mobile franchise owners are their only staff, too, so they don’t have to worry about distancing from co-workers, just make sure to stand two meters away from clients at all times. Wear your gloves for as much of the transaction as possible. Regularly wipe down your van and your equipment and wash your hands with soap and water whenever you get to a sink. If you have a face mask, wear it when doing jobs..

Best Practices For Fixed-location Windshield Repair And Replacement Franchise Owners:

As a fixed-location franchise owner, many of the same rules apply to you. Wash your hands with soap and water often, wipe down and disinfect commonly used areas and equipment, and maintain a two-meter distance from everybody else. This can get tricky inside, however. You might have to restrict the number of clients you let into your garage and office. You might want to prevent anybody else entering, if possible.
