Our ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services opportunity can also be known as ‘office cleaning’ or ‘regular contract cleaning’. We clean sites from offices, Doctors and Dental Practices, Car Showrooms, Schools the opportunities are numerous.


Financial Information

The business currently turns over in excess of £500,000 annually and is set to reach £600,000 by the end of 2018.

It benefits from an extremely healthy retention rate of 94% with an established recurring customer base of over 60 SME accounts. The two largest customers only account for just 7.5% of annual turnover.


Business Structure

Emphasis has been on developing a structure whereby the day to day running of the cleaning runs with the least amount of involvement from the business owner.

The business is set up with Area Supervisors in Hull, Grimsby and Scunthorpe who are responsible for the day to day running of the accounts. The business also benefits from a self-employed telesales person and an active database that brings in regular appointments.

The business currently employs a team of 60 experienced and loyal members of staff who would benefit from TUPE and continue to work for the new owner. Twenty-five of these employees have worked for the business for over two years and ten for over five years.

Over the previous few years much effort has been put into developing the structure so that everything is not over dependent on the business owner.



The area for sale consists of two franchise areas: South Humberside which covers Louth, Grimsby, Immingham, Barton, Brigg Scunthorpe, Gainsborough and Thorne; and East Yorkshire which consists of Bridlington, Driffield, Beverley, Hull and Goole.

The business is set up with local numbers and mailing address for Hull and Grimsby which makes the business easily transferrable and could be run from anywhere.

The business locations have great road access to the main trading towns of Hull, Beverley, Grimsby as well as Scunthorpe


Key Points to Consider

  • Well established business of over 24years ensuring excellent local brand awareness
  • Strong business structure in place which will mean for a smooth takeover
  • Employees happy to TUPE over so it is unlikely there will be a need to replace/recruit staff
  • 94% retention rate which demonstrates that contracts are loyal and service has been good
  • The two largest accounts only represent 7.5% turnover meaning that the business will not be affected hugely should those lapse
  • A full training academy is provided as part of the cost of sale by Franchisor, ServiceMaster UK
