Franchise Awards 2018

4 Corporate Vision / 2018 Franchise Awards , Maid2Clean Franchise Limited Best Domestic Cleaning Franchise - UK Withmore the 160 across the UK and Ireland, Maid2Clean Franchise Limited offers franchisees the chance tomake domestic cleaning services work around their lives. Having recognised the franchise in our 2018 Franchise Awards we profile it to find out more about how it has flourished since its inceptionmore than 25 years ago. Initially established in 1993, following 10 years of perfecting the business model Maid2Clean set up a franchise operation in 2003. The company decided that franchising was the best way to meet the recession-proof demand for cleaning and ironing services, and since beginning the franchising business it has flourished, supporting a wide range of clients across the UK and Ireland. Today, the firm offers a management agency type franchise at the forefront of the domestic cleaning sector. Franchisees operate their own Maid2Clean cleaning operations serving cash-rich but time poor residential householder clients. Unique to the market, the secret behind the success of Maid2Clean is that it provides a turn-key lean based business model compared to its industry competitors. Maid2Clean’s valued franchisees operate without the overheads and constraints that plague competitors in the domestic cleaning field such as staff, cleaning materials, equipment and transportation. They also receive a long-term automated residual income. Thanks to this supportive approach, more than 90% of Maid2Clean’s franchisees renew their franchise licenses, which is a significantly higher percentage than that of its competitors. Working collaboratively alongside everyone within the business, at Maid2Clean franchisees get a number of opportunities to meet the franchisor during the year at business improvement meetings or training refresher courses. As such, the business is constantly evolving, and franchisees are able to ensure that they share their on-the-ground knowledge with the wider company. Thanks to this approach, the firm is able to offer support and solutions that meet its clients’ and franchisees’ needs, despite the constantly evolving nature of the domestic cleaning market. As part of this approach, recently Maid2Clean has had to implement the best processes to ensure franchisees can cope with the demands of aggressive growth client acquisition and cleaner recruitment. As such, it now offers a bespoke, automatically populated enterprise database to accommodate clients, cleaners and interviewers which was developed to enable franchisees to manage the business in the most efficient way. Looking to the future, this database will remain central to Maid2Clean’s ongoing success, as the franchise seeks to remain at the forefront of emerging industry developments so that it can offer both its franchisees and their clients cutting-edge support and solutions they can truly rely on over the years to come. Whilst the UK Maid2Clean Franchise operation still has a limited number of unsold trading territories the business welcomes enquiries from prospective franchisees to operate at local level. International expansion is also at the forefront of the franchise’s focus with the ongoing aim to expand internationally by Master Franchise route into commonwealth countries to support an even more diverse clients moving forward. Following on from our recent CV award we are delighted to announce that we have also been nominated as a finalist in the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards under the category of Scale-up Business of the Year.
