Merry Maids UK – City cleaning company boss Bill Grant wiped the floor with his rivals to be named a winner in the Great British Franchisee Awards 2022.

The owner of Merry Maids in Inverness and East Highland began the business from scratch 14 years ago, and now he is regularly top UK performer for Merry Maids, the largest home cleaning franchise network in the world with 100 franchises in the UK alone.

Bill, a former ski instructor, yachtsman and gift shop entrepreneur, grew his business so successfully that he created a separate territory in the second-largest population area in his patch then sold it to a new franchisee as a separate business, Merry Maids of Moray.

“Covid hit his business hard, but after a prolonged period of closure, he came back fighting and leading from the front, and immediately rose back to his well-deserved position at the top of the Merry Maids league tables.

“He’s continued to grow his business and is even ahead of his pre-Covid performance levels – a truly excellent recovery.”
