Janet and Peter Grimes Run Their Nationwide Cleaners Business in Dorset

Peter had retired and was getting very bored; Janet had a demanding job as a Training and Business Development Manager, which involved a fair amount of travelling and had switched to working part-time. Janet had been researching various franchises as she wanted a less demanding lifestyle, but also one where she could put her skills to good use and also provide husband Peter with a new challenge in life, not to mention a good income!

Nationwide Cleaners - Janet and Peter GrimesA Nationwide Cleaners Franchise particularly appealed to us – we liked the fact that we could work from home, we also liked the fact that our cleaners would be self employed (anyone who has had dealings with employment law will know what a nightmare this can be!). We thought the franchise monthly fee was reasonable in comparison with some other franchises and we also liked the money back guarantee, which is very unusual – this was obviously a company confident of our success!

We found Peter Munro to be very helpful and informative right from our first meeting, he is entirely honest and tells you how it actually is! We won't deny that starting up the business was hard graft (which is only to be expected), but we had our first client by the end of June 2016 and had 50 clients by the end of October. Janet is giving up her training job in March 2017 to spend time further developing the business, we still have many postcode areas that we haven't yet covered and recognise that there is still a great deal of untapped potential out there!

Peter has not only spent time on developing the cleaning side of the business, but has enjoyed developing the marketing side too. Peter introduced tracking to his leaflet distribution, which has proved very successful and led to a constant stream of enquiries. When Janet has more time available in March, Peter plans to further expand the marketing, which he recognises as having good potential too!

We are both very pleased that we made the decision to invest in a Nationwide Franchise – it ticks all our boxes and is the best decision we have ever made!
