Carey’s is a Midlands-based mobile car cleaning and valet service, established by Tom Carey in 2004.
The idea for Carey’s grew from our love of cars and cleaning. We have a passion for everything we do and are extremely proud of how our business has grown and flourished over the years, giving so many people a unique opportunity to run profitable businesses of their own. This is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone within the Carey’s family.
In fact, customer satisfaction is our number one priority. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to clean every car that comes our way— regardless of its age, colour, make, or model—with the same level of respect and detail. For us, all cars are created equal!
And just like the cars we clean, our customer base stretches across all walks of life, ranging from retirees who only use our services once per month to big companies that call on us weekly.
Through solid branding, strategic advertising on digital and social media, and exceptional customer care, we’ve successfully built our business to where it is today.
We anticipate our franchisees earning £1000 per week in sales from the very start. This is based on a 5-day work week (£200 per day in sales) and valet maintenance fees of £20-25 per vehicle.
Pricing can increase up to £150 per day for Carey’s signature valets and over £200 for paint protection, therefore making it possible to earn £300-500 per day given the right job and location.
By year three our goal is to help franchisees secure a second van for the purposes of hiring an a self-employed Carey’s service provider. This is a great way for franchisees to grow their business whilst earning additional passive income.
Becoming a Carey’s franchisee means tapping into 15 years of local market experience.
All franchisees are provided with the following business resources to get up and running, fast:
*to be reviewed during monthly comms calls with Tom Carey
Franchisees will also receive the following resources* to carry out Carey’s premium cleaning and valet services according to the company’s quality standards:
*Franchisees are required to purchase their own van. Carey’s does not provide this.
There is no other valet franchise like Carey’s in the UK, much less one that is willing to put its family name up, front, and centre. We believe our brand is a big part of the Carey’s experience and something that truly differentiates us in the marketplace.
We are excited to share our experience with motivated franchisees who are ready to build and run their own successful businesses. We provide ongoing training and support, including the best equipment in the industry, to help franchisees “wow” their customers from the very start. We also help franchisees develop their sales and marketing skills, so they can grow their business and provide greater value to their customers. All training is provided by Tom Carey himself, who independently grew this business from scratch in the Midlands are over the course of 15 years.
As of day one Tom will be there to help franchisees succeed in their new career path every step of the way, including ongoing support via weekly comms calls with all franchisees. Each franchisee will also receive a comprehensive guide that details how to market their business, get and retain clients, and provide an exceptional and consistent customer experience. Carey’s will also monitor franchisee bookings regularly to better understand how we can support your business’s growth.
The training period begins with a full week of one-on-one master classes where franchisees will learn the ins and outs of running a Carey’s business. This comes complete with a comprehensive 12-week marketing strategy – tailored to a franchisee’s local area – with useful tips about how to attract new customers effectively, including in-depth Google Adwords and Facebook/Instagram Advertising training. At the end of the week, franchisees will receive their newly kitted out, Carey’s-branded van, so they can begin trading immediately.
To help franchisees grow their businesses quickly, Carey’s also provides the following:
Carey’s was established in 2004 by Tom Carey. Tom originally buying into a franchise himself called Lellers. Soon after its set up Tom did not feel he was receiving the right amount of support from the franchise company so took on Matt, his brother and Carey’s was born. The business originally came about due to our love of cars and cleaning and we have only got to where we are now down to hard work, graft and a clear cut need to succeed. We are extremely proud of our business and what we have achieved and believe that our passion for what we do and our brand will help anyone who has the same desire to own a successful business.
