Molly Maid is on the highest growth trajectory since it started cleaning homes in the UK 35 years ago, Aaron Watson, director of business development, says
In a global health crisis, it’s no surprise that cleaning has become a big business. Faced with relentless messages about the importance of cleaning and sanitising your home to keep your family safe, more families are turning to professional house cleaning companies like Molly Maid.
As a result, our industry is set to experience unprecedented growth in customer demand over the next few years.
I’ve been involved in the house cleaning industry for the past 12 years and have never seen such favourable conditions for our franchise owners to build a profitable and successful business as I do now.
At the beginning of the pandemic, we saw a noticeable increase in searches for ‘home cleaning’ and ‘house cleaning’ and a wave of new customers wanting a known and trusted brand like Molly Maid to clean their home.
But coming out of this last lockdown, we’re literally bursting at the seams.
I think this is as much to do with the fact Molly Maid is the most well-known brand in the industry and our trademarked HomeSafe cleaning procedures instantly convey ‘safety’, as an overall increase in customer demand.
But regardless of the reasons, Molly Maid is on the highest growth trajectory since we started cleaning homes in the UK 35 years ago.
Systems in place
Over the years I’ve often been asked why franchising as a business model and why Molly Maid?
Franchising as a business model means there are systems in place that have been developed so you don’t have to spend time working out how to effectively operate your business.
The benefit of this was underlined during the past year, when new systems, procedures and marketing were needed to deal with a fast-changing and dynamic business environment.
Franchising is more than just procedures, though. It’s about the brand and its instant awareness and credibility with potential customers, which in turn helps to grow sales and profits.
This is why Molly Maid is the best choice in the cleaning industry. Simply put, the brand is the most well known and most searched cleaning service in the industry.
Reducing the risk
Having spoken with hundreds of individuals considering moving from the security and perhaps even constraints of employment (on their income, their ability to make decisions or control over their time) for the freedom and excitement of becoming their own boss, I often find it’s a battle between heart and head - the heart telling them what a fantastic opportunity owning a business provides, versus their head warning them of the potential risks.
Let me be honest and say the decision to start a business always carries some risk, but when you factor in a huge and growing industry, proven systems and a well-known brand, the risk is greatly reduced.
We would love for you to join us on this exciting next stage of our journey, so make the right decision, increase your freedom and control and reduce the risk by choosing Molly Maid.
