Why Join Us

As an associate member of the British Franchise Association, Wilkins Chimney Sweep offers only the highest quality services and is compliant of all accreditation requirements of the chimney cleaning industry. In addition with hundreds of years of experience in the field, we believe that further progression will not be achieved without innovation and good leadership. We are proud that we don't lack in both areas as evidenced by recognitions from many prestigious organisations. Our recent accolades include the Best Franchisee Marketing Support Award in 2014 and a runner-up in the Best PR Campaign Award all from the Franchise Marketing Association.

The demand in chimney sweeping has seen its rise and fall. However, recent demand shows a significant growth thanks to the increasing interest in renaissance architecture and in fireplaces in general. This means that more people are more likely to engage in our services today. Moreover, this means that Wilkins Chimney Sweep is a ripe franchise opportunity for people ambitious enough to brave the industry.

Training and support provided

Wilkins Chimney Sweep is an established business with known methods and practices. As such, we intend to continue our legacy by passing on to our franchisees the knowledge needed to be able to successfully run the franchise, offer quality services and reap huge amount of turnovers. The initial training will go for 2 weeks and will be conducted with live customers while an additional one-week training will follow with topics including system, operations and accounting. We will help in the advertising of your new territory by the marketing launch website and vehicle signage on the van that you will use. Ongoing support includes face to face communication, annual conference and regional meetings.

The ideal Wilkins Chimney Sweep franchisee

As a leading player in the chimney cleaning sector, we are still open for further expansion through franchising. Interested applicants should prepare a minimum personal investment amounting to £5,500 and an average start-up cost of £13,100. The franchise package includes your own exclusive territory, branded clothing, training expenses, operations manual and software license for booking system (CRM). The exclusive territory is subject to approval and is made to ensure that no two franchises will be competing with each other but the contrary as we want all outlets to be in support not only with the mother company but with other franchisees.

Wilkins Chimney Sweep's history

In 1895, Tom Wilkins established the Wilkins Chimney Sweep in Newbury, West Berkshire as a one-man bicycle operation. The family business passed down management from one generation to generation before being purchased by Peter Harris in 1998. Having experience in franchising, he opened the company to enthusiasts with its first franchise opening in 2010. Today, we have more than 10 franchises nationwide.
