The tried and tested Zerodrytime franchise gives new franchisees the platform to build a profitable business

Zerodrytime have been cleaning households and commercial premises since 2008.

Now with over 65 vans covering virtually every part of the country, it is the UK’s only franchise that can dry clean everything that can be walked on or sat on in a household, including carpets, upholstery, leather and hard floors. Franchisees also offer customers an expert recolouring service.

Four cleaning solutions

Zerodrytime’s opportunity gives franchisees four cleaning solutions as part of one franchise, as well as second to none training, support and back up from its UK training centre in the north east of England.

Being involved in the cleaning industry, David Muirhead, Zerodrytime’s founder, was regularly asked the same questions: do you clean carpets and upholstery? And if so, how long will they take to dry?

He began to realise the huge market potential in dry carpet cleaning. After all, who wants wet carpets and the inconvenience that goes with it?

David started investigating and scouring the market for ways to give people what they wanted. In the early days, it took a lot of hard work finding the right machines and products and involved trips to the USA and numerous UK-based chemists to help make the products needed, but it all paid off.

Happy customers

Zerodrytime now has a complete solution. There is virtually no job one of the company’s franchisees can’t tackle effectively and, most importantly, they leave happy customers time and time again.

The customer base includes Hilton, Thistle, Malmaison, MacDonald, Ibis Hotels, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, The Shard, BMW, Audi, plus over 100,000 domestic customers UK wide.

Some of Zerodrytime’s franchisees have multiple vans on the road, transitioning from a ‘man in a van’ to a management role. Zerodrytime actively encourages and supports growth in this manner.

Training and support

Training begins with a ‘fast track’ process prior to the two-week course in the classroom and real life job situations, before hitting the road. Franchisees also receive ongoing support and marketing advice, as well as back office tools such as elearning portals and video tutorials.

On top of this, franchisees receive all the necessary machines, equipment, products, uniforms, van signage, tools, marketing materials and a website as part of their initial investment. Plus they receive an exclusive trading territory that contains around 90,000 homes.

Zerodrytime has a proven track record in getting franchisees from the start-up stage to earning in excess of £50,000 in their first year. The franchise is built on solid foundations of support and knowledge, giving new franchisees the platform to build a profitable business in their desired locations.

Zerodrytime is currently in the process of introducing new market leading products. It also plans to expand overseas via numerous master franchise opportunities in various countries. The company has master franchises in Ireland and New Zealand.
