Context: A 15-year old cleaning business with a loyal customer base and ways of working was ready to grow nationally.  Following discussions with leadership teams it was decided to create a franchise model to achieve this goal.

Franchising provides an opportunity to grow at your pace, timelines and budget whilst still managing the day job.  For others who would like to own their own business it’s a way to enter into self-employment with a brand that fits your profile, aspirations and future goals.

Importantly, a business developed over years, a clearly defined model, customers, route to market and ways of working.
