Why is Sparkle Cleaning a good investment?
This franchise offers you a low-cost way to enter the commercial cleaning sector using the branding, goodwill and simple methodology that has been tested and proven by Sparkle Cleaning. Franchisees can also potentially benefit from a high level of repeat business and referrals.
Commercial cleaning, which is worth an estimated £5.6 billion annually in the UK, is deemed a necessity, so is less likely to be adversely affected by an economic downturn. In addition, because of the recent coronavirus crisis, demand for more regular cleaning of places of work and educational establishments looks likely to increase until the virus is deemed to be under control.
MTW research forecasts that the commercial cleaning sector will increase in value by £450 million in the next few years.
The market research specialist says this is due to the shift to shared office space, where workers are more likely to contract a virus than if they were operating from individual offices, and the extra budget that is being made available in the public sector in education, health and transport.
Where in the UK is the Sparkle Cleaning franchise based?
Sparkle Cleaning’s head office is in Bristol.
What are the Sparkle Cleaning franchise’s terms of agreement and renewal?
The initial franchise agreement is for a five year period, which is renewable after this time.
