Why Franchise

One of the main drivers of growth in the franchise cleaning sector is the increasing demand for professional cleaning services from households and businesses. In addition, the government’s implementation of various labour laws has led to a boom in the domestic cleaning market, with more and more households opting for professional cleaning companies rather than in-house domestics. This trend is similar to the one seen in the garden services industry 20-30 years ago.

The Franchise Market Is Growing

According to Standard Bank, the franchise market segment increased by +/- 40% from 2009 to 2010 and +/- 21% in 2012 according to Kobus Engelbrecht from Sanlam’s Business Market. The franchise industry is growing exponentially in SA but still only contributing 12.0% (2015) of SA’s GDP, significantly lower than elsewhere in the world. This highlights the significant potential for growth.

More homes are hiring cleaning companies

The domestic sector for cleaning companies has been booming since the government’s implementation of various labour legislation. More and more households are switching from in-house domestics to professional cleaning companies. It follows the same trend as garden services 20-30 years ago.

More Businesses are hiring cleaning companies

Businesses are turning to cleaning companies to ensure their facilities and offices are clean, as they offer full-house services ranging from regular cleaning to specialised services.

Outsourcing cleaning to a cleaning company saves cost, time and effort.

The Cleaning Industry is Recession Resistant

The world economy is currently in a financial recession period, and so is South Africa. However, it is a historical fact that franchising booms during such times due to people losing their jobs and looking for safe business opportunities, which the franchise environment provides to invest in. The cleaning sector is recession-resistant, meaning it is not affected by the economic downturn. This was confirmed with Skitterblink’s turnover growing by +/-50% within 6 months after October 2008, when the world markets crashed.
