    CrestClean franchisees operate a number of different contracts that fall into a regular pattern. The contracts add up to the agreed annual Gross Turnover and time input. Franchisees don’t end up doing ‘dirty’ work. CrestClean looks for reliable contracts at premises where the owners and staff want a high standard of presentation maintained.

  • A.

    Generally we clean in the evenings; most often the hours are between 4pm and 11pm.
    Some contracts can be operated in the mornings. There are also daytime contracts available, we discuss with a franchisee what hours they feel comfortable working.

  • A.

    We have people in their early 20s through to those in their 70s. In fact we have many very successful franchise owners who are more senior in their years. We also have people from many different cultures, nationalities and backgrounds. Being able to understand English and being able to speak conversational English is important.

  • A.

    For Health and Safety reasons we require at least 2 person teams…so a CrestClean cleaning franchise suits husband and wife teams, or family teams with family members. We have successful franchise partnerships between friends, and partnerships between family members. Staff are permitted under supervision, so many of our franchisees will employ a worker to help operate their contracts.

  • A.

    CrestClean has a formal industry-training programme that ensures all our personnel are professionally trained in ‘best practice’ techniques and processes of cleaning. We also provide a series of training modules, which all franchisees and team members attend. The training is mostly practical, covering the various tasks and processes involved in the cleaning of commercial premises.

CrestClean has a comprehensive Franchise Information Booklet which fully explains the ‘ins and out’ of operating a CrestClean franchise. See the form below to receive this booklet by post or email.
