Minster...the tried and tested management franchise

Minster provides an essential business to business service - the management of office cleaning and allied support services - under contract. It is not a fashion or a trend but a utility, just as water and electricity. It is permanent. All commercial premises must have maintenance services. The market is vast. We provide each client with personnel, equipment and Minster's expert management systems. Each contract is self-contained and managed by a franchised regional branch office.

Proven Track Record Of Success

Minster started in 1982 and now, with 43 branches nationwide, the group turnover is in excess of £37 million. Our top branches have annual sales of over £1 million, some of which have achieved this in just 5 years.

The cleaning industry is virtually a utility with the current UK market value at over £4 billion and rising. Minster's impressive growth has meant that we are now the UK’s biggest office cleaning franchise.

Minster Is A Management Franchise

Our franchisees are special - we look for people with drive, ambition and determination to achieve their goals. A 'people person' who is customer focused and totally committed to the business. A motivator, you will need to lead, manage and direct a large workforce and by following Minster's operating systems you will be building a rock solid investment for the future.
