A Merry Maids domestic cleaning franchise is a fantastic business opportunity, operating in a market with an estimated value close to £9 billion. This market is set to grow, and with more than 26.4 million homes in the UK, there’s a great deal of potential homes that need cleaning!

Merry Maids was established almost 40 years ago and operates internationally. In the UK we have almost 100 franchised businesses operating under license and in territory. Merry Maids is part of the ServiceMaster family of brands. ServiceMaster were established almost 60 years ago and are founder members of the bfa (British Franchise Association).
Whilst this opportunity lies within the cleaning industry, your role as a franchise owner is to focus on sales, marketing, customer service and the employment and management of staff. We’ll provide you with comprehensive training, teaching you how to recruit, train and manage staff, as well as marketing and sales techniques, HR, payroll and much more.
Employed teams of maids provide regular and one-off, spring cleans and end of tenancy cleans, following the Merry Maids’ cleaning systems, using our unique products to homes within your specially selected and unique territory. Our franchisees benefit from up to 90% recurring income and up to 35% profit margins.
This is a genuine management franchise opportunity with open-ended earning capabilities for an individual who is looking to start a business, using an established brand name in an ever-growing market. With the support of a thriving franchise network and unrivalled back up from franchising experts ServiceMaster, who have nearly 60 years’ UK franchising experience, the Merry Maids model is a proven route to business success.
