Cleaning companies are taking the UK franchise market by storm and they are showing no sign of stopping any time soon. No matter what sort of state the UK economy is in, businesses will always need to be cleaned and giving off the best impression to their clients. Investing in a cleaning franchise is something which can end up being profitable due to the 5.4 million businesses and 27 million households in the UK right now so make sure to find out more below if you are interested in investing.
The cleaning franchise market is one with a robust structure that plays a vital role in the UK’s economy. With over £24 billion contributed to the UK economy from the cleaning industry, many people are now understanding the potential of cleaning franchises. The cleaning franchise market is roughly 10% of the entire UK cleaning market and it employs over 700,00 people in the UK every year. This shows the massive potential for investment in this industry.
When it comes to cleaning franchises, they can be split into two main categories. Arguably the most popular type is the commercial cleaning franchise. This type of franchise has clients from all over the business sector and involves cleaning offices and buildings used by commercial businesses.
On the other side of the market is the residential cleaning franchise sector which involves cleaning households and can be anything from special chimney cleaning to a whole home cleaning service. When you invest in a cleaning franchise, you don’t normally undertake the cleaning responsibilities rather you employ a team of trained cleaners who will do everything they can to impress your clients.
One trend that is a very positive factor for the cleaning franchise market is the shift in working arrangements at most UK’s homes. In today’s market, three-quarters of UK mums are now working and having long careers rather than staying at home like in the past. This means that the daily cleaning jobs a traditional housewife would complete are now being missed and left. This trend is great for the UK economy and great for the cleaning franchise market. With both partners working, families now have more disposable income. With a higher disposable income and many more cleaning jobs being missed at home, cleaning franchises are here to help and seize the opportunity.
