Why become a cleaning franchise owner in 2019?

When people look to make significant life changes at the beginning of each year, they often evaluate their professional future and career options.

For some this involves looking at work progression, potential opportunities and salary levels, but for many more the key focus is on finding a better work/life balance in the year ahead.

Here we look at a few of the reasons that many people in the UK choose a new career as a domestic or commercial cleaning franchisee, and the benefits that they can enjoy.


The most common reason that people choose to become franchise owners is that they wish to achieve a better lifestyle balance. Franchisees usually find that becoming their own boss allows them far greater freedom to fit work commitments around everyday responsibilities, creating more time for important factors such as family, health and recreation.


Many professionals are attracted to becoming a franchise owner because they feel restricted and frustrated by the confines of their existing work. The autonomy of running your own franchise offers a unique opportunity to lead a business independently, with full responsibility for key decisions on essential operations such as marketing, budgeting and business planning.


For some, building and running a business of their own offers a new focus and direction that they had been searching for. The day-to-day challenge of operating a successful company can be invigorating and highly enjoyable, giving ambitious individuals the opportunity to test and develop their skills and build something new, exciting and profitable.>
