Domestic cleaning is big business in the UK, and - with the right training and support - newcomers to this multi-billion-pound industry can find themselves earning significant incomes as self-employed franchisees.
When you buy into a domestic cleaning franchise, you buy the right to trade under the head franchise's brand within a certain geographic territory (usually a series of postcode ranges). Any homes that fall within your territory are your customers, and you will not have to compete for their business with other franchisees in your network. The head franchise will drive national marketing campaigns and refer any relevant enquiries back to you, enabling you to grow your customer base at a faster rate than most of your local competitors.
Domestic cleaning franchises often include a detailed support and training, enabling you to learn the very best way of approaching the business both from an operational and 'customer service' perspective. The benefit of your head franchise's experience can pay dividends in the first few months of trading, and can also enable you to stay up to date with industry trends over the long run.
The head franchise will usually expect to be paid an up-front fee for the purchase of the territory, as well as an ongoing monthly or quarterly fee that consists of a franchise licence fee and / or a percentage of your turnover. To learn more about the costs involved in joining a domestic cleaning franchise, enquire to any of the brands listed above.
