Wilkins Chimney Sweep began trading in 1895 in Newbury. In 1998 the current managing Director, Peter Harris, bought the business and grew it to a successful West Berkshire based territory. IN 2010 he and his wife, Louise, took the business to the next level and their first franchisees started in 2011.
The business now has 13 franchisees based from Whitley Bay in the North to Worthing in the South. Along the way the business has picked up awards for their franchising standards, marketing support and their franchsiees have been finalists and winners int he bfa Franchisee of the Year awards.
We're looking to significantly increase our franchisee numbers in 2018 and be able to service more customers throughout the UK.
Franchisees do not need any sweeping experience! They must have an aptitude for business, be willing and able to work physically hard, able to drive and be personable. Of particular importance is that they will have to follow a model as prescribed in the oeprations manual. Our franchisees have come from a number of different backgrounds including the police, telecoms sales, financial services and hospitality! All of them appreciate the value of choosing their own work - life blend and building a business working in people's homes delivering this important, annual safety service.Enquire Here
