ServiceMaster Clean - Four fantastic franchise opportunities that offer significant business growth models for any budding entrepreneur.

Watch Video
Profile

Founded in 1929 in Chicago, some 89 years ago, ServiceMaster Clean is one of the most well-known names in the cleaning and restorative services industry.

Brought over to the UK in 1959, ServiceMaster Clean offer FOUR money-making opportunities in both residential and commercial markets.

With over 700 territories across the UK, you will have no doubt seen one of our yellow vans on the road at some point or may have even used one of our services including carpet & upholstery cleaning, office cleaning or fire/flood restoration.

ServiceMaster Clean is one of the 7 founding companies of the British Franchise Association.

The Opportunities

Our four opportunities are built to become (if not already) management franchises where you focus on growing your business through a team of fully trained technicians rather than you delivering your own services and having less time to grow your business. Read more below to see which of our money-making opportunities best suit you and your aspirations.

1. Commercial Contract Cleaning

ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services is our regular contract cleaning model where we serve any commercial business with regular janitorial services. The industry is huge and as such we work with the motor trade, educational & health sector, retail, office and many other commercial environments on a daily basis.

This is a management business opportunity where the business owner will need to build a business through marketing and building relationships with potential clients, as well as recruiting, training and managing a great team to deliver contract cleaning services to clients. We have examples of businesses in our network that have grown by over £1m within five years using our model, advice and support.

2. Residential Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning

One of our longest standing franchise opportunities, our Residential Services model allows for the building of a profitable B2C business through delivering carpet & upholstery cleaning services to the growing market of residential properties looking for professional services, within your unique ServiceMaster Clean territory.

This flexible franchise opportunity would be suited to an individual with a passion for providing excellent customer service to the general public and the drive and ambition to build a scalable carpet & upholstery cleaning business with the help of a world-renowned brand name established for almost 60 years.

Be amongst the first to take advantage of the pioneering new ecommerce facility giving customers the flexibility to book and pay for their carpet and upholstery cleaning services online at any time of the day or night!

3. Commercial Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning

For those ambitious people that are comfortable in a B2B environment. The Commercial Services model is built around the delivery of carpet, upholstery and hard floor cleaning / maintenance programmes – aimed at businesses & organisations. Typically, the average job commands a higher ticket price, and the work would be carried out at times that minimise disruption on that site. Ongoing maintenance programmes provide regular income from those clients that value the appearance of the premises, creating a welcoming environment for their customers and a great workspace for their employees.

Your enthusiasm and positive communications skills are the starting pointing for growing a multi-van Commercial Services franchise.

4. Disaster Restoration

Not for the feint-hearted! As the name suggests this franchise model provides services in unusual, unexpected and sometimes unpleasant situations such as, removing the hazard & health risks to employees from sewage leaks & needles, or responding to acts of anti-social behaviour, graffiti, accumulation of waste & malicious damage. However, you will be rewarded for the application of the technical skills you will learn.

‘DR’ is often called the fourth emergency service – you will be prepared to respond to emergency & reactive calls 365-24-7. Whilst meeting the demands of Insurance companies, you will also understand the needs of the policyholder who may be devastated following the effects of flood, fire, smoke or water damage to their home. The rewards are there for the investors that are up for a challenge.

Why choose ServiceMaster Clean to partner up with?

Besides the fact that we have been established in the UK for almost 60 years, it’s important to consider a few of the other reasons why you should choose a ServiceMaster Clean for your franchise partnership.

  • Proven model & unique ServiceMaster Clean territory
  • Exclusive ServiceMaster products & specialist equipment
  • No experience necessary! Technical training provided
  • Unlimited field support from Qualified Franchise Professionals
  • Business Management Software
  • Website & marketing launch
  • Transactional and recurring income
  • Central Support at Franchise Support Centre
  • E-commerce (Residential platform only at this time)

What’s included?

All new ServiceMaster Clean business owners also attend our two-week training academy, receive a full business starter pack including products, equipment, stationery, uniform, van wrap and marketing collateral as well as a full marketing launch including a Google AdWords campaign, leaflet drop/direct mail, social media and PR exposure.

Is a ServiceMaster Clean franchise for you?

If you are an enthusiastic, ‘hands on’ and a good communicator, a franchise with us could be a good match! We can teach you the technical ability to match with your attributes, as well as provide the support for you to achieve your goals in business.

Being able to follow a model is essential and having the belief that the services that you provide are of great benefit to your customers.

Next Steps

If you are interested in becoming a ServiceMaster Clean partner please complete the short form below. You’ll receive our prospectus and our Brand Leader will make contact with you to tell you a little more.

At some point we would love to meet with you! Our face to face meetings are completely relaxed and informal and can be held at our Franchise Support Centre in Leicester where you can meet the whole team, or we can come locally to you. They are a great opportunity to take a look at our financial projections, plot out a territory and have a sneak peek at our working ServiceMaster Clean model.

We’ll inform you of our next training academy dates and a refundable deposit of £2,000 will reserve your territory if you decide that you’d like to partner with us.

The total cost of our ServiceMaster Clean franchise opportunities vary. The minimum personal investment for our lowest cost franchise opportunity (RES) is £5,995 + VAT which is 30% of the total franchise fee. Up to 70% of the total franchise fee can be financed through most major banks and franchise finance providers subject to status.
