Make a fresh start with Ecocleen
With 18 years of experience, over 400 customers, more than 500 employees and a multi-million pound contract base, Ecocleen is a successful and trusted supplier of commercial cleaning and support services across many business sectors in the UK.
If you are looking for a great investment and business management opportunity in a recession resistant sector, Ecocleen is the franchise for you.
The Ecocleen franchise gives you the opportunity to join a reputable and expanding brand, while reaping the rewards of working for yourself using a well established and proven system. Ecocleen has established and developed core values: passionate – service – delivery, which are fundamental to the business and ensures it is able to retain profitable business year after year.
Originally established in 1993, Ecocleen is part of the Servest Group, but following a recent investment from Managing Directors Sean Taylor and Paul Smith, the business has been reinvigorated and now works independently.
Since acquiring their 80 per cent share of Ecocleen at the end of last year, Sean and Paul have combined their industry expertise and driving ambition to develop a national sales pipeline approaching £1million.
Committed to providing the best service possible, both Paul and Sean play a vital role in the day-to-day running of the Ecocleen franchise network, ensuring its franchise owners receive the support and guidance needed to make a success of their business.
Within its customer portfolio, Ecocleen is proud to include many successful businesses and organisations, at both local and regional level, including some more widely known names such as Travis Perkins, Culina Logistics, Air Products and Frankie and Benny’s.
With 12 franchise owners already successfully operating throughout UK, all of who come from a variety of backgrounds, Ecocleen is eager to continue its national expansion.
Who are we looking for?
Ecocleen is looking for franchise owners who have the ambition and drive to grow a successful business while delivering the best service and products possible.
The Ecocleen opportunity is a management franchise but, of course, there will be times when you need to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in, showing your team that you are all in it together. This ‘hands on’ management approach forms part of our values led approach to service delivery.
The majority of your time will be spent selling and managing the delivery of our portfolio of cleaning contracts and support services to businesses and local authorities so you will need to be comfortable dealing with people, management experience would be preferable but not essential.
We need determined leaders who can motivate a team to consistently deliver to our high standards. Finally, if you are not committed to our values you are unlikely to succeed, delivering a quality product is the foundation of our business.
Franchise owner testimonials
“Since launching my Ecocleen franchise in March 2009, my business has really taken off. In the beginning I undertook all the cleaning operations myself, but now I have over 40 part-time cleaners working for me while I take care of sales generation and the day-to-day management of the business.
“I didn’t have any previous commercial cleaning experience but with the help and guidance of Paul, Sean and the Ecocleen franchise team, I have been able to build a thriving management business. Having seen the success that other Regional Managers have been able to obtain, I am eager to continue the expansion on my business.”

“I joined Ecocleen seven years ago with no previous cleaning experience, purchased a single postcode and now run one of the largest regions in the UK network. I am living proof of the Ecocleen opportunity.
“My business now turns over well in excess of £1.2 millon and I have a regional office with a staff of seven and more than 140 cleaning operatives. My target this year is £1.8 million and with £300,000 of new orders so far in 2011, I am well on the way.”
