New owners for contract cleaning franchise in Strathclyde

A contract cleaning franchise operating across Glasgow, Paisley, East Kilbride and Ayshire is under new ownership and planning to bring in new staff as it expands, all in the same year as it celebrates 20 years’ providing of commercial and office cleaning to its established customer base.

ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Strathclyde and Glasgow has been taken over by local solicitor turned business investor Alex Muir and Joe McGrath. With a legal background spanning 25 years, Mr Muir chose to leave the profession before investing in the already established, contract cleaning franchise and Mr McGrath, an experienced account and new business development manager, has swapped the beer industry for contract cleaning.

The company currently employs over 50 staff and the new owners are looking to invest in the franchise to achieve growth and take the business to new heights.

Alex Muir said: “I was looking for an investment opportunity that would provide a good return and a healthy business challenge. Working alongside Joe, we plan to grow this business and have set ourselves big targets to achieve over the next three to five years, which will mean we hope to bring on a number of new staff to help us manage our existing andnew contracts.”

Joe McGrath added: “I’m excited by the challenge to move this business forward. By growing our customer base, we can invest further in our staff with training and development programmes to help them progress in their careers.”

Guy Strang, brand operations manager for ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services commented: “The Strathclyde business is in good hands with Alex and Joe and I’m confident of great things to come from this business.”

ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Strathclyde is a franchise of ServiceMaster Limited, which has been franchising in the UK since 1959.
