Guaranteed business for all franchisee
We guarantee to offer an agreed amount of monthly turnover, delivered within a defined period and a defined territory and scaled to your level of investment, so that you get your new business off to a flying start.
With contracted customers from the start, you can then grow your business at a pace, and in a style that suits you. Our central sales team can continue to provide you with confirmed contracts for the lifetime of your franchise or, if you are keen to win your own business, we will provide you with all the sales training you need to succeed.
Sales experience is not a pre-requisite of investing in a Total Clean Franchise
Just as previous cleaning experience is not a requirement, nor is previous sales experience a pre-requisite of investing in a Total Clean franchise. With our Guaranteed Business Model, we can win all of your business for you, or provide you with the training you need to successfully sell your services to your target audience. You choose how you grow and run your business, with the support of our expert in-house team.

Frequently Asked Questions
We are sure you will have a lot of questions and we would be glad to explore these with you. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions:
It is only natural to consider starting your own cleaning business, but in our experience, it is easy for new entrepreneurs to underestimate the true cost of this, both in time and financial investment, as well as the risk. All business have start-up costs and when starting your own business you will also need to spend money on extensive sales and marketing activities to develop new business. Win rates will vary and this, along with cash flow problems associated with a variable income stream, can be key factors in new business failures.
Total Clean provides a lower risk, higher-reward model for starting a new business. Our tried and tested training, support and procedures, and critically our guaranteed business model, mean you can hit the ground running with guaranteed turnover and vastly reduce set up cost, time and mistakes. By comparison to your own business, if you wish to continue to grow, we can provide you with new business for the lifetime of your franchise without you ever having to make a single sale, so you can focus on delivery, growth and profitability.
No. Total Clean will provide all of the necessary initial and future training. Detailed sector-specific cleaning knowledge will also be gained over time as you operate your business. Our suggestion is that you deliver some of the cleaning yourself in the early stages, so you learn the business from the ground up with hands-on experience, but that you quickly move to a model where you are managing the contracts and supervising your teams’ delivery of them.
We offer franchise packages suited to all levels of investment, starting at £21,000 + vat. This investment includes all initial and ongoing training, sales, marketing and administrative support and of course the guaranteed business associated with your plan, giving you the security of turnover from the start. Refer to pXX for further details of the plan available, which can be tailored to your available investment.
As well as providing you with guaranteed monthly turnover, in line with your plan, your investment includes ongoing access to the successful Total Clean franchise system providing you with the programmes, systems and processes you need.
You gain a complete back-office team as part of your franchise package, including central administration, sales, marketing, invoicing and credit control. This provides you with the skills and support to build your new venture and significantly reduces you initial and ongoing costs and enables you to focus on customers and on profit.
Our aim is to work with you to grow your business to be as successful as you would like, from a comfortable £250k turnover to an aspirational £1m+ turnover. Your ambition is our ambition.
The franchise agreement has a minimum term of five years. You can then renew the agreement in its current form to continue to grow your business. There are no additional license fees at renewal.
At the point you are ready to step back from your franchise, you have options including passing the business on to a family member at no cost, or selling your franchise.
Your guaranteed business is included in your initial plan purchase price. For example, if you choose Plan 4, you are guaranteed £4,000 of monthly business. The contracts are then yours to nurture and manage to continue the success of your business. The longer you keep the contract, the greater the return. Your key role as the franchisee is to proactively manage and retain your customers, and we know due to the success of the Total Clean system, that our franchisees retain their customers for an average of eight years, which far exceeds the length of typical commercial cleaning contracts.
As the franchisee, you decide how to run your business. You may start out by looking after the clients yourself to maximise your profits and fully understand your business from every perspective, and then employ team members as you grow and develop your business and increase your contracts.
Total Clean offer you an agreed amount of business, in line with the size of franchise you have purchased, taking the stress out of building your own revenue stream. This gives you complete peace of mind, knowing that we will bring the new business to you in an agreed geographical area and timeframe.
When you are ready, you are of course free to continue to grow your business at a pace that suits you thereafter and we will support you every step of the way. You can work with our central sales team to win additional business for you, as well as seeking out and winning new business independently yourself. Our proven franchise system provides the training, support and resource to allow you to succeed and our mentoring
