Our franchise partners have been with us an average of 14 years, with some still with us after 25 years, through recession and economic uncertainty. These long and mutually beneficial relationships are testament to what our sustainable business model can offer you.

Ongoing support

We strongly believe on-going support and training is absolutely critical in helping you to run a successful Minster Cleaning branch and realising the maximum potential of your franchise. The following videos explain how we help you and your business.

We also offer accredited staff training, to make sure you and your staff are kept up to date with the latest cleaning techniques and standards.

Large exclusive territories

All of our territories are large and exclusive, providing a substantial number of businesses to target with the potential of many years of sustained growth.

Low risk sector

With the arrival of Covid-19, cleaning has never been more important and Minster Cleaning’s expertise in infection control has proved to be a valuable asset, particularly in GP surgeries and other medical environments we work in.

For many of our clients we’ve upped the volume of cleaning, including regular deep cleans and the cleaning of touchpoints such as light switches throughout the day.

The cleaning industry is a repeat business sector, so as long as customer service levels remain consistently good, businesses tend not to switch regularly.
