About the business
We're offering an ambitious individual or partnership an exciting opportunity to take over as the franchise owner of a thriving, profitable business with an outstanding local reputation and a stable customer base – with substantial potential to grow further.
We've actually switched off all marketing in the area currently, yet the business continues to grow! That's thanks to the reputation it has locally, with word of mouth continuing to bring in new customers.
Currently a single-van operation, there is substantial potential to quickly scale up into a multi-van business. We’ve already proven this to be achievable in other areas of the country and we’re happy to share examples with serious prospective buyers.
The business comes with a fully managed handover and ongoing support & mentoring.
The 300-strong customer base is loyal and the trading area includes several wealthy towns and villages in the commuter belt. Existing customers include celebrities, city high flyers and retirees, all of whom appreciate the reliable and professional approach My Window Cleaner takes.
The asking price includes:
• Business systems: bespoke software gives you a scalable, multi-van business
• Proven marketing: tried, tested and tracked campaigns that are proven to work
• MWC app: seamless communication with customers anywhere, anytime
• Automated invoicing: focus on your business growth, not on your paperwork
• All required equipment: van deposit, marketing collateral, Reach & Wash system, uniform and more
• Repeat business: recurring revenues leads to increased profits and cash flow predictability
Reason for sale
We are growing My Window Cleaner nationally through our proven franchise model, so we're focused on supporting our franchise partners across the country. This is a company-owned area currently which we are converting into a franchise territory.
We need someone with the ambition to change their future and build on the reputation established here over many years. We will only sell to the right person(s) – it's incredibly important to us that our customers remain as well looked after by the new owner as they're used to now.
The new owners will enjoy regular, recurring income from day one, with an average monthly turnover of approximately £4,500, and strong profit margins.
Up to 75% of the £34,000 asking price can be funded by a bank loan, subject to status. We have excellent relationships with lenders who understand the potential of the business thanks to the performance of existing franchisees.
Full financials will be discussed with serious potential buyers.
Managed handover, ongoing support
No experience? No problem. We're committed to a staged handover period of between three and six months, and ongoing support thereafter, to ensure the buyer feels confident in their new business.
And this period will cover much more than just cleaning methods; it will include full training on technology systems, marketing and all other aspects of running your business.
Becoming a franchise partner means running your own business, with our support and guidance alongside you every step of the way. You can find out more about what it means to be part of a franchise network of business owners on our dedicated franchising website.
About the franchise
We’re revolutionising an old-fashioned sector with the use of modern technology, and our results so far are exceptional: we're proud to be judged as one of Britain's best three emerging franchises in 2020 by the British Franchise Association and HSBC, thanks to our business model, technology and franchise partners.
It’s very hard to get a good, reliable window cleaner that consistently turns up when they say they will... which offers an outstanding opportunity for trustworthy and friendly people.
This isn't about simply giving you a van and some kit: it's about providing you with the systems, support and decades of experience to grow a multi-van business that dominates the market in your local area. We’ve got the proven marketing methods and cutting-edge technology to support you in driving your business forwards.
