Across our franchise network, the top branch has sales of £2 million+ per year and half of our franchisees have a turnover of £1 million+ per year. Net potential profit is £200k+. Our territories are large and exclusive to each branch offering a wide geographical target market to maximise.

On average franchisees have been with us for 14 years, showing that our tried-and-tested business model works and is providing secure and profitable futures for our partners.

If you purchase a new greenfield Minster Cleaning franchise in 2021, you will save by not paying a management fee in your first 12 months of trading. This will help give you an additional boost during your first year and get you up and running as soon as possible.*
