Executive Q&A: Jared English, President and Founder of HHO Carbon Clean Systems

 

1851: TELL US ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE BRAND:

Jared English: At 23, I opened my first automotive shop, A-1 Automotive, in January 2004 after graduating from Nashville Auto Diesel College. In 2018, that original building burned down, and I was in the process of rebuilding A-1 at its original Ferry Street location in March when COVID-19 lockdowns began. So, with a little time off, I began looking at other business opportunities.

With my background in the automotive industry, I’ve seen the problems that plague engines on a daily basis, the root cause of which is carbon buildup on engine components that no longer operate at factory spec. Engine cleaning companies in the U.S. have always used very harsh chemicals that burn the skin and are bad for the environment. I knew there had to be a better way to do it. I was researching and came across hydrogen carbon cleaning, which is a practice regularly used in the U.K. and Australia where environmental protections became more stringent quicker than here in the States. I started experimenting with this process, and over the course of months was able to see which components, generators, and service procedures maximized its effects.

Now, in addition to A-1, I’m also the founder of HHO Carbon Clean Systems, a business that uses a high-flow hydrogen generator to perform engine carbon cleaning on any gas or diesel engine. I kept the business under wraps for about four months to do testing behind the scenes — the day I went live with this I wanted to make sure I had all of the answers, and was 100% sure of the offering. After 13 weeks, we took off like a rocket with consumers. Soon, we decided to see what we could do to grow the business. The last thing I wanted to do was just hire a bunch of people, so we looked into the franchising process.

We launched our first location in June locally in Metropolis, Illinois and have a line of people ready to buy franchises when we’re ready to sell in January.

1851: WHAT ARE THE BRAND'S KEY DIFFERENTIATORS THAT MAKE IT STAND OUT IN THE INDUSTRY?

English: Well, for one, we are just about the only game in town at the moment.  Being the first mover in an industry that is growing— will have to grow to keep up with regulations and efficiency standards— that puts us in a position to really take advantage of that market growth with little to no competition.  The only techniques and products that currently try to achieve the same goals, which very commonly flake off chunks of carbon deposits rather vaporizing carbon back into a gaseous state like we do, they are using chemical compounds that are hazardous to the technicians performing the service and even more harmful to the environment when they’re eventually leached back into the Earth.  Also, the advantage of performing this service on a mobile basis versus being based out of an automotive shop means that our customers don’t have the added headache of figuring out how to drop off, pickup, or otherwise manage the logistics of having their entire fleet serviced. 

All of that goes without even mentioning the infrastructure we have built internally to support franchisees and help make them successful. We’ve built a custom business system that will walk franchisees through the prospecting of new clients, generating quotes, scheduling quotes as work orders on an integrated schedule, invoicing completed work orders, receiving payment, and generating financial reports, all of which can be emailed at the click of a button the client or franchisee. We’ve got an in house marketing department to crank out any requested materials, as well as the support of national advertising and PR agencies. Even though we are only legally bound to provide franchisees with a territory that has at least a 100,000 person population, we have decided that for these initial offerings we will be granting territories of 250,000-plus populations, and the list goes on and on. 

At the end of the day, we feel like we have structured the entire company around the focus of making our franchisees maximally successful and that is the philosophy we live by. 

1851: WHY IS THE BRAND A GOOD INVESTMENT FOR FRANCHISEES?

English: We decided on franchising because we want to bring other people into the hydrogen carbon cleaning game. HHO Carbon Clean Systems owns the market right now, which means franchisees will have access to market share before anyone else and will benefit from established brand recognition in the space. Plus, it only took us 13 weeks to get out of the starting gate at our first locations, so prospects have an opportunity to establish dominance in their home territory and ramp up quickly to their dream business.

The profit margins for this business are over 90% because all we are buying is distilled water, so franchisees are not worrying all day long about how to pay the bills. When I first started researching this concept, finding the necessary equipment was very difficult, so there is the baked in knowledge of what equipment and procedures work. Now, we are the sole distributor of this equipment in North America.

And again, granting these initial territory offerings at a level 2.5x to 3x the industry standard means that the real value— the ability to produce X revenues off of Y population— is coming to these franchisees at a huge discount.  For us, we hope that means that once these guys have become established, they simply have more business than a single person/ mobile service unit can handle, and they want to expand routes within their existing territory.  This means they wouldn’t need to pay another franchise fee, just outfit a second van and take off.  From the basic investment perspective of how much does it cost to purchase something and what is the future value of that thing, I don’t think there is a more appreciable asset out there.

1851: HOW WILL HHO SUPPORT FRANCHISEES?

English: We are continuing to gather extremely valuable data and developing a training program that will help franchisees start off on the right foot. Overall, the business model is very streamlined and offers an attractive work/life balance — we will build a candidate’s van, train them in that van for two to three days and have them ready to go to work from there.

The training program we have now is a one-week program. The goal is to have their van completely outfitted and ready to go before they even show up to our headquarters. Then we have three days in the classroom where we cover sales, CRM platform and more of the operations. After that, we go out into the field, where franchisees will be training in the actual van. At the end of that week, franchisees are able to drive that van home and start immediately.

We’ve kept systems support, marketing and operations support all in-house so we will be available whenever a franchisee has an issue or just needs help figuring something out. This ability to call and talk to the people who deal with this company every day versus being sent through a call center for support sets us apart from other franchises and we think it will make us better at troubleshooting and solving problems.

1851: WHAT DOES YOUR IDEAL FRANCHISEE LOOK LIKE? 

English: Our ideal candidate has a sense of automotive knowledge, but doesn’t necessarily need extensive experience in the field. So far, many of our candidates have been union employees who have worked long hours and odd shifts at manufacturing plants who are looking for a career change.

Sales experience also seems to be a valuable asset.  We can lay the foundation with targeted marketing and advertising, but at the end of the day, these franchisees are going to be making these deals and signing these service contracts face to face.  So having that experience and knowing that just because you didn’t sell someone today doesn’t mean you won’t sell them tomorrow is a good trait to have. 

Right now, our target markets for franchise development are all in what we call the golden square of Nashville, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennessee; St. Louis, Missouri and Evansville, Indiana. For many of the same reasons that we have already discussed, we chose this area because it is centrally located to HHO headquarters.  We can make it to all corners of that target market in just over two hours.  That gives us the ability to go and visit, ride along, and otherwise support our franchisees to maximize their success.

 1851: WHAT ARE YOUR GROWTH GOALS? WHAT IS YOUR VISION THAT YOU WANT YOUR BRAND TO FUFILL, REALISTICALLY OR IDEAL STATE?

English: Ideally we want to have franchisees all over the States, but our goal is to have 10 locations in operation by the end of next year so that we can fine-tune the support process. We want to make sure our first franchisees are successful, prioritizing smart growth over fast growth. Right now, our main goal is to get franchisees off the ground, onto the street, and producing revenues large enough to make for a very comfortable lifestyle for our franchisees.

Then we have three days in the classroom where we cover sales, CRM platform and more of the operations. After that, we go out into the field, where franchisees will be training in the actual van. At the end of that week, franchisees are able to drive that van home and start immediately.

We’ve kept systems support, marketing and operations support all in-house so we will be available whenever a franchisee has an issue or just needs help figuring something out. This ability to call and talk to the people who deal with this company every day versus being sent through a call center for support sets us apart from other franchises and we think it will make us better at troubleshooting and solving problems.

1851: WHAT DOES YOUR IDEAL FRANCHISEE LOOK LIKE? 

English: Our ideal candidate has a sense of automotive knowledge, but doesn’t necessarily need extensive experience in the field. So far, many of our candidates have been union employees who have worked long hours and odd shifts at manufacturing plants who are looking for a career change.

Sales experience also seems to be a valuable asset.  We can lay the foundation with targeted marketing and advertising, but at the end of the day, these franchisees are going to be making these deals and signing these service contracts face to face.  So having that experience and knowing that just because you didn’t sell someone today doesn’t mean you won’t sell them tomorrow is a good trait to have. 

Right now, our target markets for franchise development are all in what we call the golden square of Nashville, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennessee; St. Louis, Missouri and Evansville, Indiana. For many of the same reasons that we have already discussed, we chose this area because it is centrally located to HHO headquarters.  We can make it to all corners of that target market in just over two hours.  That gives us the ability to go and visit, ride along, and otherwise support our franchisees to maximize their success.

 1851: WHAT ARE YOUR GROWTH GOALS? WHAT IS YOUR VISION THAT YOU WANT YOUR BRAND TO FUFILL, REALISTICALLY OR IDEAL STATE?

English: Ideally we want to have franchisees all over the States, but our goal is to have 10 locations in operation by the end of next year so that we can fine-tune the support process. We want to make sure our first franchisees are successful, prioritizing smart growth over fast growth. Right now, our main goal is to get franchisees off the ground, onto the street, and producing revenues large enough to make for a very comfortable lifestyle for our franchisees.

Executive Q&A: Jared English, President and Founder of HHO Carbon Clean Systems

 

1851: TELL US ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE BRAND:

Jared English: At 23, I opened my first automotive shop, A-1 Automotive, in January 2004 after graduating from Nashville Auto Diesel College. In 2018, that original building burned down, and I was in the process of rebuilding A-1 at its original Ferry Street location in March when COVID-19 lockdowns began. So, with a little time off, I began looking at other business opportunities.

With my background in the automotive industry, I’ve seen the problems that plague engines on a daily basis, the root cause of which is carbon buildup on engine components that no longer operate at factory spec. Engine cleaning companies in the U.S. have always used very harsh chemicals that burn the skin and are bad for the environment. I knew there had to be a better way to do it. I was researching and came across hydrogen carbon cleaning, which is a practice regularly used in the U.K. and Australia where environmental protections became more stringent quicker than here in the States. I started experimenting with this process, and over the course of months was able to see which components, generators, and service procedures maximized its effects.

Now, in addition to A-1, I’m also the founder of HHO Carbon Clean Systems, a business that uses a high-flow hydrogen generator to perform engine carbon cleaning on any gas or diesel engine. I kept the business under wraps for about four months to do testing behind the scenes — the day I went live with this I wanted to make sure I had all of the answers, and was 100% sure of the offering. After 13 weeks, we took off like a rocket with consumers. Soon, we decided to see what we could do to grow the business. The last thing I wanted to do was just hire a bunch of people, so we looked into the franchising process.

We launched our first location in June locally in Metropolis, Illinois and have a line of people ready to buy franchises when we’re ready to sell in January.

1851: WHAT ARE THE BRAND'S KEY DIFFERENTIATORS THAT MAKE IT STAND OUT IN THE INDUSTRY?

English: Well, for one, we are just about the only game in town at the moment.  Being the first mover in an industry that is growing— will have to grow to keep up with regulations and efficiency standards— that puts us in a position to really take advantage of that market growth with little to no competition.  The only techniques and products that currently try to achieve the same goals, which very commonly flake off chunks of carbon deposits rather vaporizing carbon back into a gaseous state like we do, they are using chemical compounds that are hazardous to the technicians performing the service and even more harmful to the environment when they’re eventually leached back into the Earth.  Also, the advantage of performing this service on a mobile basis versus being based out of an automotive shop means that our customers don’t have the added headache of figuring out how to drop off, pickup, or otherwise manage the logistics of having their entire fleet serviced. 

All of that goes without even mentioning the infrastructure we have built internally to support franchisees and help make them successful. We’ve built a custom business system that will walk franchisees through the prospecting of new clients, generating quotes, scheduling quotes as work orders on an integrated schedule, invoicing completed work orders, receiving payment, and generating financial reports, all of which can be emailed at the click of a button the client or franchisee. We’ve got an in house marketing department to crank out any requested materials, as well as the support of national advertising and PR agencies. Even though we are only legally bound to provide franchisees with a territory that has at least a 100,000 person population, we have decided that for these initial offerings we will be granting territories of 250,000-plus populations, and the list goes on and on. 

At the end of the day, we feel like we have structured the entire company around the focus of making our franchisees maximally successful and that is the philosophy we live by. 

1851: WHY IS THE BRAND A GOOD INVESTMENT FOR FRANCHISEES?

English: We decided on franchising because we want to bring other people into the hydrogen carbon cleaning game. HHO Carbon Clean Systems owns the market right now, which means franchisees will have access to market share before anyone else and will benefit from established brand recognition in the space. Plus, it only took us 13 weeks to get out of the starting gate at our first locations, so prospects have an opportunity to establish dominance in their home territory and ramp up quickly to their dream business.

The profit margins for this business are over 90% because all we are buying is distilled water, so franchisees are not worrying all day long about how to pay the bills. When I first started researching this concept, finding the necessary equipment was very difficult, so there is the baked in knowledge of what equipment and procedures work. Now, we are the sole distributor of this equipment in North America.

And again, granting these initial territory offerings at a level 2.5x to 3x the industry standard means that the real value— the ability to produce X revenues off of Y population— is coming to these franchisees at a huge discount.  For us, we hope that means that once these guys have become established, they simply have more business than a single person/ mobile service unit can handle, and they want to expand routes within their existing territory.  This means they wouldn’t need to pay another franchise fee, just outfit a second van and take off.  From the basic investment perspective of how much does it cost to purchase something and what is the future value of that thing, I don’t think there is a more appreciable asset out there.

1851: HOW WILL HHO SUPPORT FRANCHISEES?

English: We are continuing to gather extremely valuable data and developing a training program that will help franchisees start off on the right foot. Overall, the business model is very streamlined and offers an attractive work/life balance — we will build a candidate’s van, train them in that van for two to three days and have them ready to go to work from there.

The training program we have now is a one-week program. The goal is to have their van completely outfitted and ready to go before they even show up to our headquarters. Then we have three days in the classroom where we cover sales, CRM platform and more of the operations. After that, we go out into the field, where franchisees will be training in the actual van. At the end of that week, franchisees are able to drive that van home and start immediately.

We’ve kept systems support, marketing and operations support all in-house so we will be available whenever a franchisee has an issue or just needs help figuring something out. This ability to call and talk to the people who deal with this company every day versus being sent through a call center for support sets us apart from other franchises and we think it will make us better at troubleshooting and solving problems.

1851: WHAT DOES YOUR IDEAL FRANCHISEE LOOK LIKE? 

English: Our ideal candidate has a sense of automotive knowledge, but doesn’t necessarily need extensive experience in the field. So far, many of our candidates have been union employees who have worked long hours and odd shifts at manufacturing plants who are looking for a career change.

Sales experience also seems to be a valuable asset.  We can lay the foundation with targeted marketing and advertising, but at the end of the day, these franchisees are going to be making these deals and signing these service contracts face to face.  So having that experience and knowing that just because you didn’t sell someone today doesn’t mean you won’t sell them tomorrow is a good trait to have.
