Commercial Cleaning Services Lead the way as Fastest-Growing Franchise
The cleaning industry is fast-growing, benefiting from the combination of a constant need for commercial cleaning and an increase in residential cleaning. Companies are now used to outsourcing cleaning services and office cleaning dominate the sector. Commercial cleaning services claimed seven of the top 10 spots in Entrepreneur magazine’s list of the fastest-growing franchises in the U.S. It is also a very strong market in the UK, with a 91% growth in the last three years for the domestic cleaning sector and a market currently worth around £3 billion.
Cleaning services have many benefits which include low start-up costs; it requires no retail space and its relative recession resistant. The cleaning industry has the advantage to present a wide range of products and services to clientele, but also to the prospective franchisee. Office and home cleaning rival car washing; dry cleaning; carpet, window, oven and even bin cleaning. Not only do cleaning franchises perform well in any economical situation, they are also great for those looking for home based business opportunities and affordable franchises.
Furthermore, cleaning franchises are a good fit for potential franchisees with high sales and customer orientation. Experts note that the cleaning businesses require bonding and insurance, and they advise potential franchisees to find out what distinguishes a franchise from its competitors. The Iwesco franchise is leading in the South African market and offers a combined integrated waste and environmental management cleaning service.
