Wokingham joins Cleanhome’s growing network of business partners

Standard

Cleanhome is excited to announce that John Polston (Cleanhome Wokingham) is the latest business partner to join its rapidly growing network of franchisees.

John joins from a footballing background, having enjoyed a career as a professional footballer for over 17 years.  John retired from the game at the age of 33 and has continued working in footballing circles ever since.

Always on the lookout for something new and long term, 6 months ago John started to search for a franchise business opportunity.  John explained, “I wanted to start a business in my area of expertise however, I quickly realised that the football market sector in and around Wokingham was saturated with a plethora of related businesses, so it was back to the drawing board.”

John previously owned a commercial cleaning company, and based on his cleaning business knowledge, his next step was to review cleaning franchise opportunities.  He contacted a number of different cleaning franchises, and spoke to a number of people prior to making the decision to start a Cleanhome business.

When asked why he chose Cleanhome John stated “The business prospectus was very informative and the numbers looked good.  I didn’t want to participate in cleaning myself and I recognised that the business is a management and introductory model, which was perfect.  I had a good feeling about the company before I even made contact.”  John added, “My confidence grew after the initial conversation with Karen, it was honest, open and gave me all the detail I needed to make an informed decision.”

The next step for John was to speak to other business partners.  John clarified, “Immediately after speaking to each partner I thought, I’m going to go for this” John added “I felt certain that the numbers were going to work, and my goal is to earn a reasonable living whilst enjoying my job.”

Karen Kelly, founder of Cleanhome said “it was obvious from the moment I started talking to John that he is a people person, he is a very positive and charismatic character, and I am delighted that he decided to join the Cleanhome team.”  Karen concluded “John will be a fantastic addition to our network, and I know he will be hugely successful with building his new business.”

Cleaning up St Albans, from £0 – £73,000 in only 12 months!

Husband and wife team Adam and Andrea own the Cleanhome business in St Albans.  They have been extremely successful within their 1st year of trading, reaching a whopping £73,000 turnover – of which over £65,000 is pure profit

Starting the business in October 2020 during the pandemic, Adam and Andrea have worked hard and their business has gone from strength to strength.

Adam spent 35 years of his career in sales management and explained, “I have always been employed in the corporate world, and I often felt frustrated by organisational hierarchy, at times being managed by people less skilled than myself, I quite often thought about running my own business.”

Andrea also has a corporate background, but decided to go it alone and has been self-employed for over 19 years.  Andrea comments “We both felt our work/life balance was poor we wanted to address this by finding something we could do together, enjoy together and reap the rewards together.”

The couple explained it was a scary decision for them both to be self-employed but they were determined to be successful, and the business has grown quicker than even they anticipated.  They have worked hard but they knew that putting the effort in at the beginning of their journey would allow them to reap the rewards later on.

Adam remarks “The change to our life has been massively positive.  I’m now my own boss and I don’t answer to anyone, I enjoy being the ultimate decision maker in my own life.”  Andrea added “I can’t stress how absolutely brilliant the decision to sign with Cleanhome was.”

Karen Kelly, founder of Cleanhome summarised by saying, “I am over the moon for Cleanhome St Albans.  From the moment I met them I knew they’d be successful, it was the quickest business set-up I’ve completed, and that’s because both Adam and Andrea couldn’t wait to get started.”  Karen added “I’m very proud of their achievement to date, and can’t wait to see where they eventually take the business – the sky’s their limit.”
