Next Steps

House Cleaning Franchise

Earn £100,000+ a year from domestic and contract cleaning, without getting your hands dirty!  

Poppies Cleaning Franchise has been at the forefront of the UK’s quality domestic cleaning industry for over 40 years… but you won’t find anything old-fashioned about the Poppies business model.

Poppies' technology, systems and processes make this a business that’s simple to operate and control. The Poppies bespoke business management system minimises your admin and lets you focus on what’s important: stellar service and stellar growth.

By running a successful Poppies House Cleaning Franchise you will be minimising overheads, and only move to an office when your cash flow allows – meaning no further investment is required.

Run your own cleaning business with Poppies:

The primary role of the franchisee is to build and maintain great relationships with both clients and staff. The ability to get on with people and enjoy providing help to other people’s lives is one of the cores Poppies are looking for in their franchisees. The skills around cleaning they can teach; but the understanding of how to create happy clients is something that is invaluable.

As a Poppies Franchisee, you will employ cleaners your customers can rely on to be honest, efficient and discreet. Poppies will share with you their extensive inside knowledge about recruitment in the industry, which has been built up over many decades. From cleaners to managers and administrative staff, rest assured they will guide you through the very best practices to recruit and retain a dream team who will ensure your franchise flourishes.

The House Cleaning Market

Since Poppies launched in 1980, attitudes to having help in the home have changed significantly – more and more people want professional cleaners. Your clients will typically include:

  • Working families who want to outsource the housework so they can enjoy more quality time together
  • Individuals whose idea of working hard and playing hard doesn’t involve a weekend clean
  • Elderly people who need to take it easier and are less able to keep up with chores
  • Landlords who’ll come back to you repeatedly to sprinkle some end-of-tenancy sparkle on their properties

The pandemic has put an increased focus on the importance of cleaning and living in a fresh, hygienic home. The desire to have this cleaning done professionally has seen demand for Poppies’ services increase to record levels.

A business journey, taken together

You can have your own Poppies House Cleaning Franchise either by setting one up in a new territory or by buying one that’s already established. Either way, Chris and his team will mentor and guide you on following the proven business model. Poppies provide everything you need to start and run your Poppies business.

If you’re starting from scratch in a new territory, these are the typical steps in your journey ahead:

What Our Franchisees Say

Poppies has helped me develop new skills that I never had before. But the thing about Poppies is that you are making a difference to people’s lives – it seemed to me there was very little chance I could fail with the support I would have. I’m here over 10 years later, so I obviously made a good decision.Rob Piper, Poppies Liverpool

It was a big learning curve, but it was good because with Poppies there is always support there for you. You just have to call somebody and they will tell you how they dealt with the same situation. That support mechanism and backup is really handy and really useful.Nicola Marinan, Poppies Durham

The fact that you’re coming into a franchise means you’ve got the support there already from the network. We’ve gone through foot and mouth, recessions, COVID, and we’re still going, protecting our staff and lifestyle. It’s a very robust model. North.Andrew Wishart, Poppies
