Case studies

 

Developing Derbyshire

Minster franchise derby franchisee A well established branch of Minster Cleaning Services has a new owner. The thriving commercial cleaning companys Derbyshire franchise was purchased as a new start in 1998 and the previous franchisee took over in 2005. New franchisee, Paul Watts chose Minster because he knew that his 30 years management experience would prove to be invaluable.

After a short time in teaching, Paul armed himself with a Masters Degree in Information Management and joined CCN Systems in Nottingham where he was responsible for product development and strategy running large development and delivery teams. CCN later became Experian PLC, the worlds largest consumer credit and marketing information and decisioning business.

He fulfilled his goal of retiring at 55 but was bored after a year and began looking for something which would make good use of his extensive management and technology skills, and was fairly local to his home in Matlock. Minsters Derbyshire branch fitted the bill and this large, exclusive territory offered a low risk opportunity with almost unlimited scope for expansion.

Minster franchisee derbyThe branch employs 90 staff and provides services to around 120 clients across a wide range of businesses. Paul says: There is huge potential for further growth by exploiting Minsters expertise in specific business sectors such as healthcare which currently accounts for around 20% of our client base thanks to Minsters knowledge of implementing cleaning regimes which meet CQC requirements.

Attracting just a small proportion of the market in our area will create a substantial business. Were focussing on customer satisfaction to ensure retention and much of our new business is coming from loyal customers who give us extra work or recommend us directly to prospective clients. Our target is to double turnover within four years.

The majority of Minsters most recent franchisees have joined through the purchase of an established branch. Buying an existing business has many advantages including cash flow, customers and staff from day one, it can also provide evidence of what can and has been achieved and it can show how the business is likely to perform in varying market conditions. Office cleaning is an essential commercial service which appeals to a broad customer base, this helps to protect franchisees from the peaks and troughs experienced by so many businesses.

Minster Cleaning Services began in 1982 and has been a bfa Full Member since 1992. The company has branches across the UK and employs more than 5000 people. Annual turnover is £40million. Half of Minster franchisees have each built up businesses with sales of more than £1million and the top branches have each achieved annual turnover in excess of £2million. As the UKs largest commercial cleaning franchise, it offers prospective franchisees a safe and secure future whether they buy an existing branch or choose a new area.
