Minister Resale opportunity

An exciting opportunity to run a large, profitable Hertfordshire business

Minster Cleaning Services is one of the UK’s most successful management franchises and a leading force in office cleaning. Annual turnover is over £30 million and average turnover is now well over £700,000 across the 41-branch network. Their Hertfordshire branch was established in 1997 and benefits from a very healthy local business economy and huge expansion potential. It is now available to purchase. Hertfordshire is economically strong with a growing population. It has well above the UK average number of enterprises per head of population and also consistently outperforms the rest of the UK for new business registrations.

Minster’s Hertfordshire branch is currently based in Hatfield and covers a large, densely populated area including the towns of Barnet, Enfield, Hatfield, Potters Bar, Radlett, St Albans, Watford and Welwyn Garden City. Additional marketing rights are available for Hemel Hempstead, Hertford, Luton and Stevenage.

It has been in the hands of the current owner for the past seven years. Since then turnover has grown steadily by 33 per cent from £450,000 to £600,000. The company has a staff of approximately 80, many of whom are part-time. Key employees include a part-time Office Manager, a full-time Supervisor, a part-time Supervisor, a part-time Accounts Clerk and a full-time Relief Cleaner. The branch has a high level of client retention and referrals have always played an important role in new business acquisition.

The business is perfectly positioned for a new owner to take over and, from day-one, continue to run a professionally-organised, staffed business, with a strong, long-term, stable and profitable customer base. In addition, there is massive potential for further growth: 20 per cent of Minster branches turnover in excess of £1m, with profitability of at least 10 per cent and at least two branches that have recently resold have doubled turnover post acquisition.
