The Dolly Char Service

Dolly Char Dolly Char (UK) Ltd is owned and run by a husband and wife team Robin and Carol Harrison. According to Robin, the business offers a great service to many people from all walks of life that don’t have the time or the inclination to clean their own homes.

"Many people now have lifestyles that are becoming increasingly cash rich but time poor. In addition, more people are making the positive decision that they don’t wish to spend their precious weekend and evening leisure time carrying out basic domestic chores – they want to employ someone else to do that. The Dolly Char service provides cleaners on an introductory basis which means that we help our clients recruit a suitable individual in line with their own specific needs. If at some point in the future their domestic help leaves or the client is unhappy with any aspect of the work then we help to find a replacement. This takes away many of the problems associated with employing people," said Robin.

Dolly Char have employed the services of Mike English Franchising, to help them develop their franchise system and provide on-going advice and support with franchisee recruitment and network development. "We felt that having the right advice would result in a better business model, and that has certainly been the case," said Robin.

With an increasing number of households looking for domestic services, the industry is growing at a rapid rate. The key issues for many people are quality, reliability and cost. Dolly Char offers a competitive pricing strategy that means their services are affordable by a wider range of people than many other professional cleaning services. Dolly Char is looking for people who can manage a introductory Management Business that is friendly, local and dedicated to high standards of service.
