Franchisee Focus: John Telfer (Cleaning Doctor)

Cleaning Doctor is a network of professional cleaning and restoration companies serving customers across the UK and Ireland.  

They provide domestic and commercial cleaning and restoration services to home owners, businesses and non-commercial organisations.

Cleaning Doctor Franchisee John Telfer, shares his experience, ten weeks into his journey as a franchisee.

‘What I was looking for in a franchise was fairly basic but important.

Firstly I wanted a van/home based franchise that enabled me to initially keep overheads to a minimum. Secondly I wanted a simple structured business that I could easily manage and operate with good potential growth but more importantly a good repeat customer base that was local to my home.

Having searched and investigated several different franchise options, I decided that Cleaning Doctor more than met all my requirements.

Cleaning Doctor offered all of the above combined with excellent training and backup but more importantly the marketing expertise that I could tap into from the start to get the business up and running. I was generating cash immediately from day one. I found that the marketing support was second to none from head office. Their expertise and guidance meant that I was fully booked for the three weeks prior to Christmas having only been operating for two months.

The ongoing marketing help with the website, Facebook, leaflets and technical information has given me immediate credibility and has allowed me to develop my customer base far quicker and easier than I could have imagined. Being part of a bigger recognised network meant I was already pitching for and winning commercial work as well as domestic and this has given me the confidence to drive the business forward much more rapidly than I could ever have imagined.’
