Poppies Celebrates Further Expansion As Cleaning Franchise Launches In Nottingham

Poppies Celebrates Further Expansion As Cleaning Franchise Launches In Nottingham

With the demand for exceptional professional cleaning services continuing to grow as 3.2 million professional cleaners now operate within the residential cleaning sector alone1, domestic cleaning franchise, Poppies, is continuing to celebrate a year of growth and expansion across its network. This month, Nottingham based cleaning expert, John Burrows, has launched Poppies Nottingham East to provide a high-quality, trusted service to the city’s local communities.

John, 58, has been a key figure in providing exceptional cleaning services to the city’s homes, supermarkets, schools, hospitals, bus shelters and more since 1998. Now, endeavouring to restore the community’s trust in home service providers, he has seized the opportunity to take the lead himself after stepping away from his previous role.

“I feel so well placed being the latest addition to the Poppies network,” said John. “I’ve been looking at the franchise industry on and off for roughly 20 years, but it felt like the perfect time to go for it with such a reputable brand as the demand for exceptional home services grows across the country. With Poppies, I can finally invest in myself by becoming a leader in the industry as well as reap the rewards of the investment I’ve made with a franchise that consistently proves its worth to its customers and franchisees.

“With so many cleaning providers today offering a sub-par experience, people have become accustomed to expecting poor service. It has damaged the reputation of honest, trustworthy cleaners and cleaning businesses - I hope to instil a culture of quality and reliability in the local home services industry with the launch of Poppies Nottingham East.”

Prior to becoming a new franchise owner, John had spent 20 years working for various cleaning companies in the area until becoming an archiving clerk with a local solicitor. But after deciding to return to what he knows best, he devoted the time to find the industry leading opportunity that would enable him to fulfil his dream. And with its ethical ethos and high standards, coupled with being an established and professional brand, John knew Poppies was right for him.

“I really believe in the franchise opportunity that Poppies is offering. It’s authentic, honest, reliable and has a franchisor that endeavours to invest in its people – that’s obvious from day one. The whole infrastructure of the company lived up to expectations and the new head office and training facility is the perfect example of the brand continuing to maintain its place as a market leader in both the franchise industry and home services industry.

“Now, as a franchisee, it’s vital that I find talented, passionate people who are seeking real opportunities to progress in the industry - Poppies is an environment where professionals finally have a career path and feel respected,” added John.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming another addition to Poppies’ growing network of passionate entrepreneurs,” said franchisor, Chris Wootton. “Increasingly, more devoted professionals in the cleaning industry are turning to franchising to become leaders and help improve its reputation. John is a shining example of a franchisee with years of experience who will help move the cleaning industry into the future. We’re proud to be the franchise of choice for people like John, who recognise the importance of cleaning brands having the foundations of honesty and reliability.”

Poppies Nottingham East is part of a national network of 25 franchisees building their own local business, creating over 500 jobs and delivering high-quality cleaning to over 6,000 homes on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis in line with clients’ individual needs.
