Future Bantec Sanitizing franchisees will offer BANT Sanitizing supplies, robots, UV lights, drone sanitizing, spraying, and deep cleaning services. The world, as we knew it, changed with Covid-19; the way we view sanitizing and deep cleaning will never be the same.

With the Covid-19 Delta variant, and other possible variants, along with other potential virulent pathogens on the horizon, we believe, through Bantec Sanitizing Franchisees, we are in a great position to help businesses keep their employees and customers safe.

We expect income from sales of franchises to substantially add to our bottom line this year.”

BANT Overall Company Shareholder Update
On June 8th BANT issued the following shareholders update of the full scope of company operations and plans for the future.
Howco Distributing Co.
During the six months of 2021, Howco posted a $ 102,000 operating profit. This time last year, Howco posted an $ 85,000 operating loss. BANT management is pleased with Howco’s six-month performance. Recently, Matt Wiles, Howco’s General Manger, resigned. BANT views Matt’s departure as opportunity to cut costs at Howco. Presently, two very capable managers run Howco. One runs the estimating and procurement department the other runs the logistics side of the business. Both are long term employees, and both have proven their worth time after time. Along these lines, BANT may separate Howco into two distinct businesses: Howco and Bantec Logistics. The latter should be a Franchisable entity.
At Drone USA, BANT is considering making Drone USA a franchise. A Drone USA franchisee would sell drones, drone accessories, robots, training, certificates of authorization and waivers. As the drone delivery package market grows, BANT Drone USA franchisees could add drone package delivery services to their repertoire.
BancTec Sanitizing Mobile Franchise
Both the Bantec Sanitizing Business Plan and Franchise Disclosure Document are complete. BANT can sell in New Jersey which is a franchise non-filing state. Covid forever changed the way we look at cleaning; it is no longer “my desk is clean, or the carpet vacuumed” now it can be a matter of life or death. Bantec Sanitizing embeds science in the BANT cleaning process. The science will protect customers. BANT takes this seriously. Customers’ health and possibly their lives depend on it.
Currently, BANT is bidding on industrial flooring projects. Flooring ties in nicely with sanitizing. Most flooring products are porous and allow microbes to settle in and make the floors difficult to sanitize. Some of the products BANT offers are not porous and make sanitizing more effective. This will probably be the next BANT franchise.
Intellectual Property Portfolio
BANT intends to expand its intellectual property portfolio. Recently BANT acquired “a drone operated delivery receptacle receiving packages” patent. The patent designed gates “are configured to open when a delivery drone is detected by a control unit of the delivery receptacle”. This patent constitutes one step on the BANT path towards the drone delivery market that we know will be big. In addition, we acquired dozens of domain names and initiated work on important trademarks.
The BANT difference that matters consists of establishing lifelong customer and supplier friendships, responding immediately to customers needs, and providing products and services through a highly organized, technically trained, motivated and incentivized workforce. Each new initiative will complement and add value to existing BANT businesses by providing a difference that matters to existing and newly acquired customers.
