In her first year of trading, Cleaning Doctor franchise owner Patricia Duffy achieved a turnover of £50,000.
Duffy took over an existing Cleaning Doctor Home Cleaning Services franchise in 2008 and has since built it up into a thriving business. Duffy said: “I bought my business from its previous franchise owner so the brand was already well known in my territory, however I have also developed its recognition further.
“Before launching my franchise I worked as an Accommodation Manager in a local hotel. I had wanted to do something different for a while when I came across an advert for the Cleaning Doctor franchise.
“As well as receiving intensive training, which covered every aspect of the cleaning and day to day running of the business, I have also had fantastic support from head office.
“Although running my business is hard work I really enjoy owning it and I like the satisfaction I get from seeing clients happy with the work I do.”
