Katherine Branton, who recently purchased the Brentwood franchise, worked for the previous franchise owner since 2004, running the business for her. When the franchise owner left to pursue other interests Katherine took the opportunity to purchase the business.

'There may be a recession on right now but domestic cleaning is still very much a growth industry. In my first eight weeks owning the franchise, I have signed up 44 new customers.'
Freddie Rayner, founder of Time For You, added: 'We're delighted to welcome Katherine on board as a fully fledged franchise owner.
'We've got to know her over the last few years and know she is a dedicated talented person. When the Brentwood franchise became available we were genuinely overjoyed that she decided to make the investment and become a proper member of the team. Now we wish her the best of luck and look forward to working with her growing her business.'
