The Betterclean Services franchise opportunity is suited to people looking to build a profitable management business in their local area.

Betterclean Services offer a rewarding opportunity for smart investors wishing to combine their ambition and drive with our guidance and support to build their own management franchise in the commercial cleaning industry.

Commercial cleaning services are provided on a recurring income basis meaning that your clients will pay you on a monthly basis for your services and, providing you maintain levels of service, will stay with you for many years. This not only allows you to forecast your income better, but also means that you do not have to constantly look for new clients each month.

At Betterclean Services we not only understand that we need to be by your side every step of the way, but more importantly we want to be by your side. Everyone in the franchise support team has the same underlying goal – to help others build the business they want. Ongoing support is provided through a combination of direct experience, guidance and assistance from our Head Office team and a wealth of more specialised experience from our support partners. The combination of internal and external support means that you will be given all the support you need to reach your goals.

Triple Digit Growth in Exeter & Taunton Franchise

Betterclean Services Image

“I’ve always been very proud of the high quality of our cleaning services, which has resulted in very high client retention rates and growth through word of mouth,” said Caroline. “Like many service providers, our business was almost brought to a halt when the COVID pandemic first hit and, if it hadn’t been for the Furlough scheme, we may not have survived. Coming out of the pandemic, we decided we needed to grow faster to achieve a scale that would help us survive future economic shocks. We realised we needed to do this by focusing on the source of our past success, which has been about treating our staff really well” she explained.

In a sector renowned for fickle employment practices, Betterclean Services Exeter & Taunton has followed a different path. “Since my early career working for airlines and marketing agencies, I’ve understood the link between happy and motivated staff and high levels of service. And I’ve tried to bring this philosophy to Betterclean and the way we manage our teams,” said Caroline. “But, to achieve the scale we needed after the pandemic and in the face of chronic staff shortages in front-line service sectors, we realised we needed to redouble our efforts as a good employer.” That journey has seen the business become a Real Living Wage Employer, with all staff paid a fair wage significantly above the minimum wage adopted by most cleaning companies. A benefits scheme has also been introduce in partnership with the leading rewards App, Perkbox, offering staff reward vouchers and shopping discounts with high street retailers. “But, above all, we’ve really focused on good management of our teams” Caroline explained.

“I spend much of my time talking to our managers about what our staff need from us. The topics are wide and varied, ranging from making sure we approve holiday requests quickly to giving additional time off to deal with personal crises, to helping people find housing or counselling resources. In addition to being supportive, we aim to be very clear about what we expect of people in their roles and we try to deal very quickly and fairly with any underperformance or disciplinary issues.”

This focus on staff has really paid off. At a time when other cleaning companies are constrained by staff retention and recruitment problems, this is not a significant issue for Caroline. “We have won many new contracts this year as a result of other cleaning companies struggling to deliver service in the face of staff shortages and recruitment difficulties. This has led to high rates of referral from new clients who have been so pleased we’ve been able to bring their cleaning services back to good standards that they have been spreading the word” Caroline explained. "I see word of mouth marketing as a key success metric for the business and over the last 9 months about 80% of new business has come via referral” she added.

As Caroline looks forward to the next 12 months, she is aiming to double the size of her business again, to about £2M turnover. “I’ve got such a great team in place that I’m confident we can grow. I’d rather continue to put my time and money into our staff, over other costs like marketing and sales, because this creates the solid foundation we need for our rapid growth. I also need that growth to continue providing career development opportunities for the staff that want them.”

Earlier this year Caroline measured the general motivation levels of all of her staff using an Employee Engagement App, Workbuzz. She was delighted with the results. An overall Engagement Score of 85% revealed that by far the majority of Betterclean staff were happy in their roles and committed to the company, significantly above service sector averages. So, it appears Caroline has good reason to be confident about the future.

Betterclean Services Franchise Testimonials
Dealing with Dan and Mike has been a pleasure, I find them both open minded and business oriented and are equally as eager to grow the Betterclean brand and business in the region.
Nader Srouji, Betterclean Services, Milton Keynes,
Betterclean Services Franchise
Having looked at other cleaning franchises, I chose Betterclean, as their business model and structure offered me the most flexibility in terms of scale. This allows me to determine the pace at which I develop my business, how fast and how large I want my business to grow. The support in getting startup clients also allows me to have a jumpstart while simultaneously developing and building my clientele. Existing franchisees shared good experiences, this boosted my confidence to invest in Betterclean.
Sahadeo – Betterclean Services Coventry,
Betterclean Services Franchise
After researching a number of big name franchises in various sectors, I stumbled upon Betterclean Services in my search. I was looking for something that was scalable and also flexible in the operational structure. One of the appealing aspects was that the franchise was a proven model that could be delivered anywhere in the UK. I wanted the expertise to get off to a flying start and Betterclean Services fit the bill.
Soel, Betterclean Services Swindon,
Betterclean Services Franchise
I became a Betterclean franchisee in November 2016, when I bought the Exeter and Taunton territory as a going concern. Over the past 2 years, I have doubled the revenue and far exceeded the growth and income targets I had set myself. Betterclean provides franchisees with robust operating systems and procedures, that have allowed me to focus my energies on building a staff team that I am proud of, on developing strong client relationships, and on delivering a service that differentiates Betterclean from other cleaning providers. The support I have received from Head Office has been invaluable, in terms of advice on operational delivery, HR matters and business development, all of which have facilitated steady business growth. That, combined with a friendly network of fellow franchisees, has meant that I have never felt alone when encountering challenges along the way. Being able to work from home has given me personal flexibility, and kept my operating costs low while the business grows. In addition, the online management system, BLISS, enables me to run my business on-the-go, and means that I have a healthy work-life balance, unlike previous businesses I have run. The low management service fee has been critical in contributing to a sustainable profit margin in a very competitive industry. Finally, I would say that the Betterclean model provides a strong operational framework on which franchisees can build their business in line with their own strengths, interests and personal goals.
Caroline Spiller, Owner/Director of Betterclean Services Exeter & Taunton,
Betterclean Services Franchise
I strongly believe we made the right decision, choosing the Betterclean services franchise to start our commercial cleaning business. In hindsight I would have created more scenarios when structuring the business plan, as the margins have been tighter than I expected. Make sure you do your due diligence thoroughly and seek independent advice. On comparing the market, Betterclean Services was the best option for us.
John Goodyear, Franchisee (Betterclean Services York),

When my husband and I met Dan and Mike we felt really comfortable with them, and not only liked them but felt their business model made total sense. II was looking for an opportunity in a different business sector and realised franchising was a quick wato start, effectively buying the sector expertise of the franchise owner.
