Betterclean Services launches its franchise opportunity

New commercial cleaning franchise opportunity Betterclean Services is offering entrepreneurs the chance to become involved in an industry, which generated £4.6 billion in 2009 within the UK.

Founded in 1995, Betterclean Services is involved in the commercial cleaning of premises such as theatres, dental surgeries, office premises, holiday parks, doctors’ surgeries and car showrooms – and holds contracts with organisations including the Dartmoor National Parks Authority.

The Betterclean Services franchise offering requires enthusiasm, drive and passion for exacting client service levels. In return, Betterclean Services’ franchise owners will be rewarded with business growth which, in relation to other franchise opportunities, is relatively fast.

“We believe a win-win philosophy is essential to our franchise owners, and us,” explains Betterclean Services’ Managing Director Dan van Kuyk, who became involved in franchising to spend more time with his family.

“If you feel you have the motivation to emulate our highly successful formula, we would be very keen to speak further and explore the possibilities of achieving together our future mutual success.”

Betterclean Services Ltd provide everything the franchise owner requires to launch and develop the business.

The initial franchise package provides the deliverables appropriate to every new franchise launch including their own unique operating software. Additional items are supplied as appropriate to each franchise owner’s requirements.

“Our aim is to provide client satisfaction by providing a first class commercial cleaning service through innovation, efficient working practices, effective communication, quality assurance and consistent improvement,” adds Dan. “Our objective is to become the commercial cleaning service provision of choice.”

The business now predominantly exists as a commercial contract cleaning operation, with 90 per cent of the turnover associated with this field of expertise.

The remaining 10 per cent is attributed to cleaning windows (sub-contracted), carpets, ad hoc cleaning such as house lets, seasonal cleaning work within the holiday industry, hard floor cleaning and small consumable products that they supply, such as sanitary provisions to existing clients.

Initially, the smaller 10 per cent of the business was sub-contracted out to professional service providers. This skilled service provision and the necessary specialised equipment are now offered by Betterclean Services to its clients direct, contributing to the extensive portfolio of services (with the exception of commercial window cleaning) and indeed the profitability of the company.

Although the continuous success of the company can be largely attributed to the dynamism of Dan and his team in managing a large commercial cleaning company, together with a significant number of contracts, part of this success can also be accredited to BLISS (Betterclean Logistical Information Software System), a comprehensive software system developed over many years.

This system manages the whole business, including clients, staff, contracts, client’s performance analysis and time keeping and is constantly updated to enhance business performance and increase client satisfaction.
