Why A Commercial Cleaning Franchise is a Great Option for Stay at Home Parents

Advancing and balancing a career with raising a family is a challenge that many parents face. In some families, both parents work in order to not only provide for the family, but also maintain a certain lifestyle. However, whilst household incomes rise from both parents working, it’s also normal that people don’t have the time or energy to enjoy the extra income and many parents feel that they aren’t able to spend as much time with their children as they would like.

For these reasons, an increasing number of parents are looking at opportunities for home-based businesses. Franchises provide a great opportunity for stay at home Mums and Dads to work from home, benefit from time-flexibility, spend more time with their children, and increase their job satisfaction.

At MCS, we offer management franchise opportunities in the commercial cleaning sector, allowing parents to build a business from home. Let’s talk about some of the key benefits of taking on a commercial cleaning franchise.

Job satisfaction

For parents that find that they get home at the end of the day feeling tired, deflated, and fed up of working for someone else, a commercial cleaning franchise opportunity could be the perfect career move.

A franchise business provides the opportunity to be your own boss and build a business around your life, not the other way around. Who wouldn’t want to take control of their own destiny?


Whilst running a cleaning franchise provides the independence of working for yourself, franchisees also benefit from the support of the franchisor. Franchises provide a trusted brand name, a proven business plan, extensive training, and ongoing business support and advice. Franchisees can also benefit from connecting with other franchisees to learn from their successes in building a commercial cleaning business.


Whilst setting up and running a cleaning franchise certainly takes a lot of work, parents that work for themselves from home can be much more flexible with their time. Not only is the commute a thing of the past, but franchisees can pick their working hours to fit around their children and family life. As a result, it’s much easier to develop a healthy balance between work and family.


For parents who have decided that a stay at home business is the right decision for them, it’s important to consider which franchise businesses provide the most longevity. As businesses will always need professional cleaning services, a commercial cleaning franchise benefits from this demand. Whilst commercial cleaning is an all year-round necessity, there are certainly times of the year where franchisees can benefit from extra demand. In last month’s blog, we discussed how franchisees can benefit from summer seasonal work.
