Proven business model

Our track record and experience has enabled us to refine our business model over a long period of time.  This means you can implement a proven system and start building your business from day one.

Our franchise partners have been with us for an average of 17 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.

The Minster Cleaning model offers a highly profitable and recession-resistant business opportunity. All of our franchise partners have been incredibly successful in turning the sector’s demand into profitable sales: Now, with over 40 management franchise branches nationwide, the group turnover is in excess of £50million. Top branches are achieving sales of more than £2million per year and many are turning over in excess of £1million.

Minster Cleaning provides an essential service to thousands of organisations across the UK. Each customer benefits from trained personnel, quality equipment and expert management systems. Each contract is self-contained and managed by a franchised regional branch office.

Minster Cleaning’s marketing approach enables you to obtain new contracts across a variety of channels. You can quickly build a business with support and guidance from the Minster Cleaning Network Support Centre without the risks and the uncertainty of setting up as an independent.

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

The cleaning industry is a repeat business sector.  When customer service levels remain consistently high, businesses tend not to switch regularly.

Minster Cleaning operates in the stable and recession-resistant commercial cleaning sector, which has bounced back quickly from the pandemic.

Workplace 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. We can bring this expertise to our customers in other sectors too.
