According to Mike Parker, Managing Director, 2014 has been a busy year so far in many ways and all for the right reasons.
Mike comments, "We are seeing a noticeable rise in the level of serious enquiries coming into our office from potential Franchisees wishing to join Minster. Frustratingly, a number who wish to join us live in territories where we have an existing and successful Franchisee who has no plan to sell up at the present time".
"We do have one of our existing areas under offer and we are progressing through legal requirements at this very time. In another territory, there is a potential purchaser working through due diligence checks whilst we continue to evaluate his skills and experience to ensure he will be a good fit to join Minster Cleaning Services as a Franchise partner."
"I am also having preliminary conversations with a couple of people, who I would rate as commercially astute, regarding new territories."
"These factors combined give me confidence to conclude that the country is lifting out of recession, a fact backed up by our own trading experience, having grown across our network by almost 9% in 2013 with 14 of our branches having achievied double digit growth. Fantastic."
