Being part of Ecocleen has been a rewarding experience, both at a financial and personal level. Being part of this tested and approved franchise system means that you can concentrate in growing and operating your business"
We were intrigued by Ecocleen, their Excellent Branding & Company Ethos which really drew us in. We have seen a marked difference in the standard of the school since Ecocleen took over, when we first met them we knew we had made the right choice! The Regional Director lives in our area, he gave great advice and clearly had a lot of experience in working with schools. We would highly recommend!
I am extremely impressed with every aspect of the service from quick and thorough communication through to excellent support for their cleaning staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any Clinic. It's great to have a Local Director but that's part of a National Brand.
Our relationship with Ecocleen has always been a two-way professional one, led by the Regional Director who has been approachable, proactive and efficient. He always monitors the work carried out by his team, working alongside them. I would not hesitate to recommend Ecocleen and I hope that we continue to have a lengthy relationship.
“Requesting the information pack was so easy and saved me so much time. It gave me everything I needed to know” Jim Humphrey – Ecocleen Exeter

The average size of an Ecocleen franchise is £420,000 per annum and the model will push turnover to in excess of £2m. Every OFFICE, every SCHOOL, every GP SURGERY, every SHOP, every building… they ALL need cleaning. We’ve got a pretty long list of customers, and you’ll benefit from our experience, capability and testimonials.
The name Ecocleen reflects our strong message and has been known to open doors to customers all on its own. We love our brand but more importantly so do our customers. The brand gives a sense of trust and that is essential when seeking out new clients to work with. And that’s no small thing, we’ve worked hard over the past 20 years to establish the credibility and visibility of our brand through the excellence of our service delivery and getting our message out there through our marketing.
With INVESTMENTS starting from £14,599+ VAT, an Ecocleen management franchise is a proven value proposition, particularly given the potential for significant growth and earnings.

If you build something of value it makes sense to be able to realise that value, right? We know that even successful franchisees don’t want to work for ever, so Ecocleen has developed an exit programme tailored just for you. We’ll help make sure your business is ready for resale or for you to take a more detached role while bringing in a manager to maintain your growth and momentum.
