Coming out of the RAF after 20+ years of service I knew that I didn’t want to be a civilian employee. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but knew I wanted to take charge of my own life.

My planning taught me that I wanted a franchise that provided the potential to; earn a good income, work in both an indoor and ‘on the road’ environment, meet a variety of people, every day and gain satisfaction for myself and my customer. This thorough research concluded that Safeclean met every one of my needs. Running a franchise is the perfect balance of taking control of my future and freedom following a life in the forces and still maintaining structure, process and the support from a large network.

I’m very proud that franchising with Safeclean means that I’ve been free to run my own life and provide for my family, while still being disciplined and hard working in doing so. One of the best things for me has been getting a great amount of satisfaction in the transformation of heavily soiled items to a wonderfully clean state and seeing the delight on the customers faces. While running my franchise as a family business, I have experienced a fantastic variety of situations. From the normal household job, right through to a millionaire’s second home and a celebrity’s private yachts.

Over the years Safeclean have proven to be an ethical franchisor, with an eye on quality products and services as well as first class head office support. I have always been most appreciative of the support we have been given by all Head Office staff, over the 24 years, be it from training updates to flexibility in changeover to new machinery, marketing or financial queries – the training is free and on-going.

After 24 years of successful trading, I’m now selling my franchise business in the Cornwall area, as it is now time for me to retire. My many years of exceptional service have gained a substantial, loyal and repeat customer database. Over the years, we have also developed a large number of business contacts, including high end holiday property management companies and quality furnishing store contacts.

I’d be very happy to offer a handing over period to the new franchisee to ensure they feel comfortable in taking the business over, which would come with an immediate workload. The Cornwall area is both beautiful to work in and provides a wide variety of custom.

The investment is £38,000 for the West Cornwall area (Truro to Lands End). East Cornwall sold recently.

Bank funding options may be available - who can fund up to 50-70% dependent upon your past financial history. Annual turnover ranges from £80,000 - £100,000 (West Cornwall and East Cornwall), however there is recognised potential to expand and diversify the business, thus increasing turnover.

This franchise would certainly suit someone who is interested in taking control of their own future and providing a stable and secure income. This is a golden opportunity for a true ‘job for life’.
