Successful Domestic Cleaning Franchise
Highly affluent areas of Cheshire
Ref. CQ193
Location : Cheshire
Asking Price : £65,000
This successful  domestic cleaning business franchise generates more than 95% of annual sales turnover from circa 175 clients, many of whom are high net worth customers living in some of the most sought after areas of Cheshire.  In addition to this it undertakes a very small proportion of commercial  cleaning, however its core is domestic.

The franchise has been successfully developed by the vendor for almost a decade  through a mixture of entrepreneurial spirit and market knowledge.  The business offers its discerning customers speedy and professional domestic cleaning that covers just about any cleaning problem, providing first-rate cleaners to people who do not have the time for chores.

The business offers a personalised house cleaning service so clients have more time to do the things they  enjoy.

The company’s expertly trained team of cleaners will clean homes with precision using the best possible cleaning methods. They operate efficently, being led by a dedicated team of in house staff, all of whom have be trained to a high standard. The business also offers a variety of customised services to clients upon request.

The business/franchise has invested in Information Technology and is run using an effective CRM customer management system that interfaces with Sage accounting software that makes the adminstration of the business simple and effective. It also enables credit card and standing order payments to ensure positive cashflow.

The business employs a strong second tier supervisory team. This team enables the owner, who currently works 4 days within the business, to take extended breaks without fear of business interruption.
Facilities:The business operates from ideal leasehold premises centrally located to its customer base. Current rent is circa £500/month. Rates are circa £1,200 p.a. The business could easily be relocated if need be with minimum disruption.
Competition:The business currently undertakes a limited level of marketing and carries out leaflet drops, community led promotions (e.g. local raffle prizes etc.) and occasionally local magazines. The business also has its own tailored website as well as the franchise company’s own generic website. There are excellent opportunities to increase this and to develop a more interactive internet presence so as to enable online sales and enquiries as well as to market the business more aggressively. A high proportion of the business s revenue has been due to its excellent reputation for quality and service and strong word of mouth recommendation and referral business.
Growth Potential:The business has enjoyed steady growth and profitability over the years without really having a dedicated sales and marketing strategy. A more proactive approach to sales would certainly increase revenues as the business is scalable. It currently has some 175 active customers within its designated post codes but there are some 10,000 potential domestic clients out there! Through choice, the vendor has only really operated within traditional office hours. There is scope to expand the hours of operation, which could certainly increase revenues. The demand is there should a new owner decide to follow that route. There is also the potential to expand south of its current area of operation subject to approval by the franchise company. The business is well positioned within an affluent part of Cheshire and there is huge scope for successful expansion.
Training/Support:The current owner will provide all necessary training and handover to allow continuity of trading and a seamless transition of ownership. This should be a relatively simple process as the business has excellent back office systems in place. The new owner will also have the continued support of the franchisor.
Sale Reason:Vendor is looking to relocate outside the area.
