We continue our focus on exhibitors present on the day with a look at NIC – with 1 in 7 service leavers entering business or franchising.

Franchising since 1995, NIC offers a Management Franchise in the contract cleaning sector.

NIC Franchisees are not cleaners. They are people who have the energy and drive to use our systems, marketing, and business development support to build a business in the contract cleaning and facilities management sector.

Your role as an NIC Franchisee is to focus on growth and managing client relations whilst leading a team to deliver services to your clients, fully supported by our experienced team.

We are one of the largest privately owned commercial cleaning and facilities management companies in the UK and utilise our experience and leading support team to drive the success of our franchisees.

Our franchisees clients include education facilities, doctors’ surgeries, retail units, offices, hotels, and hospitality venues. With 80% of our business being contracted repeat business managing cashflow is made so much easier.  

Our business is largely unaffected by seasonal trends or economic conditions. With companies seeing professional cleaning as a necessity rather than a luxury, the opportunities for daily, repeat business clients is stronger than ever.

NIC Wrexham Franchisee Chris Marsden identifies some of the main advantages of our industry as: “Cleaning is an essential service, there are opportunities literally everywhere around you. When you attend networking events or meet someone new, they are a potential client as they will more often than not own or work in a premises that requires cleaning.”

Chris is working to build up his existing client base and then look to explore opportunities to introduce additional services to them including one off cleans, builders cleans etc. Chris adds “Maximising opportunities with my clients is very much at the forefront of the NIC mantra so I know I will get the support and guidance I need to achieve this.”

“I would say that if you’re prepared to work hard there are massive benefits to be had in owning a franchise. I would certainly recommend an NIC management franchise.”
