Minster Services is one of the UK’s biggest commercial cleaning franchises, and has been established in the UK since 1982.
The company provides cleaning services for B2B markets only, and offers a variety of services for all kinds of commercial premises, from generalised cleaning services for offices, including floor and carpet cleaning, to more specialised services such as window cleaning, washroom management and janitorial work.
The brand is well established in the industry and highly successful, with many of their franchisees staying with business for several years, earning turnovers in excess of £1m in some cases.
With a strong reputation and a proven business model that has helped the franchise succeed for over 35 years, this can be a great business opportunity for anyone looking to establish a long-term cleaning company.
The head office for the Minster Services Group is located in Birmingham.
Franchisees are allocated large, exclusive territories, giving them an extensive market without the risk of reaching saturation point in their chosen area, or competition from another franchisee. Franchise territories are available across the UK, in selected areas.
Currently, the company is offering franchises in Cambridgeshire, Doncaster, Durham, Leicestershire, Middlesex, Peterborough, Swansea and Guildford.
There may be additional territories available and more information can be found by contacting the head office team.
You may be able to find some existing franchises available for resale in certain territories. This can be a great opportunity for someone familiar with running their own business, as they can take over a franchise with an existing customer base and income stream, which can offer greater security with a guaranteed source of earning from the outset.
There are currently resale franchise opportunities available in Devon and Cornwall, and across Nottinghamshire. It is worth contacting the franchise team for further information, or to enquire about other locations.
