Siva Kugathas

CS Guildford
Contract Services partner since 2016

With over 20 years’ experience in senior franchising roles, Siva was looking for a new challenge and aimed to identify and purchase an existing franchise with unlimited growth potential. Having looked at several propositions, Siva saw ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Guildford as an ideal opportunity to take an established business to the next level.

Rachael Downer

CS Herts, West London & North Surrey
Contract Services partner since 2004

Rachael started her family and found that working 12-14 hour days meant she didn’t see them very much. Looking for flexibility, Rachael investigated setting up her own business and ServiceMaster was an attractive opportunity due to the excellent training, support and handholding in an industry she didn’t know.

David Cram

CS Southampton
Contract Services partner since 2014

Having previously worked as a Sales Manager for an existing ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services franchise, David wanted a taste of the success for himself and bought his own territory to operate exclusively within.

Chris Blewitt

CS North East
Contract Services partner since 2018

Chris was ‘fed up’ of not being in control of his own destiny and aspired to earn ‘a lot more’ than an average income. As such, Chris was drawn to ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services because of the long-established brand and low-cost entry into being in business for himself, not by himself.

Tom Jackson

CS Dudley & Wolverhampton
Contract Services partner since 2020

As an existing franchise owner of 16 years for our sister brand, Merry Maids, Tom decided to further invest in the ServiceMaster family of brands with a ServiceMaster Contract Services franchise. Tom’s experience as a franchise owner and positive experience with our franchise support team helped Tom to leap in to a new opportunity in the commercial cleaning sector.

Stuart McCaig

CS Bradford
Contract Services partner since 2023

Before joining ServiceMaster, Stuart worked as a contractor and a permanent data analyst for Lloyds Bank. This background has informed his approach to decision-making and his direction. After many years at Lloyds, he says he “wanted to be the master” of his “own path.” So, he decided to step into something new.

After spending time in the business, Stuart’s long due diligence deliberation period gave him the answer: ServiceMaster Clean was the perfect choice.

The types of people you could expect to network with can vary from Managing Directors, General Managers and business owners to Facilities Managers, Estates Co-ordinators and Property Managers and everyone in between.

The Contract Cleaning Market

The value of the contract cleaning market is reported as being anything from £5.6b annually, which makes it a great industry in which to start a business.

The contract cleaning market will always exist. Whether that’s daily office cleaning – emptying bins, cleaning desks, replenishing washrooms and vacuuming hallways – or periodic deep cleans of meeting rooms, function rooms, high traffic walkways and reception areas, regular office cleaning is a must in today’s business environment.

The cleanliness and overall appearance of a business’ surroundings can have a huge effect on the initial impression by customers and also staff. A reliable, quality and trusted provider of commercial cleaning services is, for many businesses across the UK, a significantly important facet of their day-to-day business operation.

Targeting hospitality, education and healthcare will be your main priority markets as they have high cleanliness regimes to uphold.

Whilst the contract cleaning market is competitive, if you provide a great service coupled with great customer service, you’ll hold on to your customers despite the active competition. Why would they need to look elsewhere?

Last year alone, our franchise network grew by £7.20m, an average of £218,000 per business… and we’ve even bigger goals for the future. Cleaning may not be an exciting topic for some, but we think now is an exciting time to be a cleaning business owner with ServiceMaster.
