Bright & Beautiful Derby helps Operation Christmas Child

December 16, 2018

A Derby-based professional housekeeping franchise, Bright & Beautiful, volunteered to spend the day recently at a Derby depot to pack shoeboxes full of toys, clothes and supplies for Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, to deliver gift-filled shoeboxes to over 146 million children in more than 100 countries.

Toni Hibbert, franchise owner of Bright & Beautiful Derby has been involved with the charity on a personal level for five years, but this year she has involved her team of professional housekeepers, so they could experience first-hand how impactful a small shoe box can be for children around the world. The franchise is also sponsoring the shipment of ten shoeboxes, as well as contributing their own toys and gifts to go into the boxes.

Over the next few weeks, Toni and her team are scheduled to drop in and help at the Derby Processing centre to check and pack the thousands of boxes that have been donated and delivered before they are sent out to children around the world.

Toni commented: “We have had such a fantastic time so far at Operation Christmas Child’s depot and together we worked tirelessly to get the shoeboxes filled with gorgeous toys, school supplies, and much needed hygiene items for so many well-deserving children around the world. Once we got the hang of it, the process became rather addictive and we can’t wait to go back and contribute to the fantastic effort from the regular volunteers. It is going to be a very busy time until the very last boxes are loaded into the lorries for their onward journey.‘’

Two franchisees donate services to BBC’s DIY SOS

October 21, 2018

Franchisees from Drain Doctor and Bright & Beautiful have donated their services to adapt a family home in North Shields for the BBC television programme, DIY SOS, which helps homeowners improve their property following a change in circumstances.

Both franchisees and their team members welcomed the well-deserving family to their new home at ‘The Big Reveal’ and had the opportunity to meet the host of the show,

Nick Knowles. The programme, which is due to be broadcast later in the year, involved Drain Doctor carrying out a CCTV survey of all drain lines in and around the property. Its technicians then supplied, installed and rerouted new drainage and manholes at the rear of the property, which was vital to allow the new foundations to be installed for a rear extension.

With a team of 12, the domestic housekeeping service Bright & Beautiful, carried out a thorough clean of the property prior to the family moving in.

Jim Watson, Drain Doctor’s North East franchisee, said: “It’s fantastic and very humbling to have played a part in this build project and I can’t thank my technicians Dan, Craig and Ian enough for the hard work they have put in over the three days they were on site. It is incredible to see the North East coming out in force to make this possible in order to keep a family together.”

‘Very emotional’
Helen Ross, Bright & Beautiful’s North Tyneside franchisee, added: “It has been a huge pleasure to have supported this fantastic DIY SOS big build and we are extremely proud to have played a part in giving this hugely admirable family a home they deserve. The Big Reveal was very emotional for everyone and it was great to meet the family who are now able to start rebuilding their lives thanks to the army of local tradespeople involved.”

Drain Doctor and Bright & Beautiful are part of Neighborly, one of the world’s largest companies of franchised trade service brands.

Amy Wilson was delighted to win Business Transformation 2018, commenting: “I was really excited to win this award, and to be recognised particularly as I have only been a franchise owner for 18 months.  Any new job is daunting, but this award means so much to me and provides me with with even more motivation to grow the business further.  The Bright & Beautiful franchise is not just about me – without my fantastic team of local housekeepers who have created great relationships with their customers, and the continual support from my family – I would not be where I am today.  I  would also like to thank the Dwyer Group, who have invested both time and money into Bright & Beautiful, providing me with the support and infrastructure needed to succeed.”

The awards ceremony took place in Berlin to commemorate the success of leading franchisees and included Franchisee of the Year, President’s Award, Technician of the Year and Business Growth of the Year, amongst many more.   The awards showcased many of the Dwyer Group’s franchisees who may have bought into franchising to get a better work life balance or be their own boss and who, through their enterprising nature and determination to succeed, stand out from the crowd.

Cleaning franchise firm plans to create 500 jobs over next three years

May 2, 2018

A firm which offers domestic housekeeping services is planning to create 500 new jobs as part of a major expansion.

Bright & Beautiful, which is part of the Dwyer Group, has a nationwide franchise network which has exceeded a £6million annual turnover this month, the highest since the company launched in Manchester in 2007.

The award-winning Cheadle business has added five new franchisees to its network already this year, taking it to 56 nationwide, employing over 500 people and delivering more than 10,000 home service cleans per month.

Bright & Beautiful now plans to create 500 new housekeeper roles by 2021, bringing the workforce to over 1,000.

The company has also expanded its franchise support team to eight and the marketing department to a team of four, with additional head office recruitment planned for later in the year.

Bright & Beautiful’s franchise network turnover has grown by more than £1m since the company became part of the Dwyer Group in 2017.

The majority of the revenue growth is due to the expansion of the individual franchises locally and to the franchisees achieving ambitious business goals.

Bright & Beautiful has also developed a range of new revenue channels including seasonal and one-off client cleans.

Sue Moore, president of the firm, said: “As a business we have grown consistently since we began, fuelled by the fact that one in four UK households now relies on some form of domestic help.

“Our national growth strategy means that we are now on target to create a further 500 jobs across the UK over the next three years.

“Our franchise network has already created in excess of 500 professional housekeeping jobs which offer either full time working arrangements or family friendly part time hours.

“Ethical employment has long been a vital component of our business; in an industry where zero hours contracts or self-employment can be the norm, our professional housekeepers benefit from holiday pay, full employment rights and progressive career opportunities.

“These are jobs that are not only helping women and men into work and serving our local communities but are also contributing significantly to our regional and national economy.”
