We know what it takes to provide you with the basis for a successful domestic cleaning business.

Each of our franchise areas have been carefully designed through market research ensuring that you get access to 12,000 potential customers regardless of what area you choose.

MOLLY MAID is a great choice if you want recurring revenue too – up to 90% of your business will be repeat business.

A MOLLY MAID business has comparatively low set up and low fixed costs and you’ll have a positive cash flow from day one. The investment we ask from you to start a MOLLY MAID domestic cleaning franchise is:

  • The initial franchise and territory fee
  • Staff recruitment leaflets
  • Support programme
  • Customised management software
  • Customised lead management software
  • Household cleaning equipment and supplies
£9,000 to help support a positive and successful launch of the business in your local area. This money will be spent in conjunction with you on the most effective forms of advertising, to drive a high volume of enquiries and ultimately generate new regular customers within your first 6-9 months of opening. This investment will be further supported with a number of incentives for achieving your initial sales milestones.

Total investment of £16,975 + VAT

We would advise you to have a minimum of £8,000 in working capital in your bank on day one, bringing the total investment excluding VAT to £24,975

It is recommended that in the first year of starting your cleaning business that you have the ability to cover your living costs from somewhere else, such as personal savings or from your spouse or partner.
