Welcome to Green Machine, your gateway to a prosperous and secure future in the commercial cleaning industry. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the elements that set our cleaning franchise apart and make it an attractive option for potential franchisees. Discover why choosing Green Machine means unlocking a world of opportunities, even in challenging times.
1. Recession & COVID-19 Resilience:
In a world marked by economic uncertainty and the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Green Machine’s cleaning franchise stands strong. Our business has not just weathered these storms but has grown and become even more robust. We’ve faced the complexities of COVID-19 head-on, ensuring the safety of our employees and clients while maintaining the quality of our services.
We are committed to providing safe and effective cleaning solutions. With Green Machine, you’re not just joining a franchise; you’re becoming part of a resilient and adaptive business model.
2. Thriving Commercial Cleaning Sector:
The UK commercial cleaning sector is a thriving market worth over £5.6 billion, and it continues to grow year on year. Every business in the UK, regardless of size or industry, has the potential need for commercial cleaning services. This translates into endless opportunities for our franchisees to build profitable and successful businesses.
At Green Machine, we understand the immense potential of the commercial cleaning sector. Our cleaning franchisees are positioned to tap into this growing market, providing essential cleaning services that businesses rely on to maintain hygiene, safety, and professionalism.
3. Recurring Income & Earning Potential:
Financial stability is a cornerstone of Green Machine’s franchise model. We specialize in B2B commercial cleaning services, with 90% of our core business made up of contracted customers. This strategic approach ensures our franchisees benefit from a recurring income stream every month.
Contracted customers engage us for specific cleaning services over set periods, guaranteeing a steady flow of revenue. We provide a clear structure, such as daily hours and service weeks, to establish a reliable income source. Our agreements typically span two years initially, with continuous annual renewals, securing long-term financial stability for our franchisees.
4. Diverse Range of Services:
Green Machine offers more than just basic commercial cleaning. Our franchisees have the opportunity to diversify their service offerings, catering to various market segments and client needs. Our services include:
- One-off builders cleans
- COVID-19 cleaning services
- Washroom services
- PAT testing
- Window cleaning
- Carpet cleaning and hard floor maintenance programs
Each of these services boasts high-income margins, enabling our franchisees to maximise their revenue potential. By providing a comprehensive suite of offerings, Green Machine franchisees can become one-stop solutions for their clients, further enhancing their profitability.
5. Low Start-Up Costs:
In any successful franchise business, keeping costs and overheads low is essential. Green Machine recommends starting your new business from your home address, minimising initial expenses. All you need is:
- A desk workspace
