Build a recurring income | Be Your own boss | Grow an asset to sell
Commercial cleaning and facilities management is a vast sector with continuous demand where you manage the needs of your clients, combining your team and the latest tech to deliver the bespoke mix of services their premises require.
The NIC Commercial Cleaning Franchise has a refreshingly different approach: guiding, supporting and encouraging you to build a larger business, without restricting you to only operating in a small local territory. You can even utilise other franchisees located around the country to deliver your furthest contracts. Win-Win.
Your team will deliver the range of repeating relatively simple services, enabling you to build a contracted recurring income. Forge deep client relationships, while continually adding more contracts to grow an asset to sell in the future, all while enjoying a stable monthly income.
Benefit from the wider group’s experience and buying power to leverage the latest tech to save your cleaning operatives’ time and energy, enabling your NIC Franchise business to have a competitive advantage and to maximise profitability with the SME markets you will serve.
We believe we provide franchisees the highest level of personal guidance and support of any established franchise in the UK. Typically, each of our full-time Business Development Managers works 1-2-1 with five franchisees; providing ongoing coaching, guidance and support on every element of their business. The support changes as the franchisee confidence grows - it really works.
