What you’ll need to run a Poppies Domestic Cleaning Franchise:

Buying a franchise is a low-risk way of sharing in the success of a high-profile business, backed all the way by the people who know it best and made it all possible.

Poppies will let you into their trade secrets, support you with marketing and operations, and mentor you to become a confident Poppies Franchisee. 

You don’t need to have owned a business before, nor have any experience of cleaning (because you won’t be doing it! You’ll employ the cleaners), but you do need to be:

1.     A great communicator

3.     Driven and determined

4.     Methodical and motivated

5.     Proud and personable

"I’m a people person and
Poppies is a relationship 
business. That’s one of the
many reasons why it’s been
so 
rewarding for me."
Rob, Liverpool

"It's great being
independent but
also comforting to have
support and advice
from other business owners
running 
similar companies."

Katie & Lee, Chester

"My goal is to increase our
monthly cleaning hours to
over 
2,000 a month. Although
it's very ambitious, I
think I can 
achieve it."

Nicola, Durham

As a Poppies Franchisee, you will employ cleaners your customers can rely on to be honest, efficient and discreet.

Like you, they’ll make it their business to keep clients happy!

Poppies History

Established in a recession in the 80s, Poppies have traded through several more since, with no sign of demand dropping off. Susan Rorstad founded Poppies and her success with growing an elite franchise brand across the UK saw her awarded an MBE by Prime Minister John Major for Services to Domestic Care in the 1994 New Year’s Honours. 

Poppies is now owned and operated by its most successful franchisee, Chris Wootton, and continues to go from strength to strength. The Poppies Way is tried, tested and proven to get results. 

Poppies is a serial franchisor recognised in the top 100 Franchises by Elite Franchises.

What Our Franchisees Say

Poppies has helped me develop new skills that I never had before. But the thing about Poppies is that you are making a difference to people’s lives – it seemed to me there was very little chance I could fail with the support I would have. I’m here over 10 years later, so I obviously made a good decision.Rob Piper, Poppies Liverpool


The fact that you’re coming into a franchise means you’ve got the support there already from the network. We’ve gone through foot and mouth, recessions, COVID, and we’re still going, protecting our staff and lifestyle. It’s a very robust model. North.Andrew Wishart, Poppies


It was a big learning curve, but it was good because with Poppies there is always support there for you. You just have to call somebody and they will tell you how they dealt with the same situation. That support mechanism and backup is really handy and really useful.Nicola Marinan, Poppies Durham
