Poppies prides itself on the personal touch – something our customers have appreciated for decades. As a franchise owner, you’ll employ cleaners your customers can rely on to be honest, efficient and discreet. They won’t raise an eyebrow if the house they’ve cleaned is in uproar the next time they visit, and they’ll even park your liveried van around the corner if the customer wants to claim the credit for all their hard work! Like you, they’ll make it their business to keep clients happy.

What if people don’t need cleaners?

They most certainly do! Most people prefer a clean home, but the number of people who like getting it clean and keeping it that way is infinitely smaller, fortunately for you and for us.

Your clients will include City types who want to outsource the housework, couples whose idea of working hard and playing hard doesn’t involve a weekend clean, flatmates who can’t agree on anything except that they don’t want to do the cleaning, elderly people who need to take it easier, and landlords who’ll come back to you repeatedly for end-of-tenancy sparkle.

We started Poppies in a recession in the 80s and have traded through several more since, with no sign of demand dropping off.

Working couples and families are placing more and more value on their leisure time, safety and comfort, and our ageing population requires more in-home support.

And, as the pandemic continues, cleanliness and infection control are arguably more important than at any other time in history.
