About the Business
The business was established in 2009 and has built a very good reputation for excellent customer service & a very high standard of cleaning. It has grown rapidly in the last 12 months, taking on many new sites around the Newcastle region. Currently only managing offices, doctors rooms & showrooms. No shopping centre work is involved, although we are regularly asked. Previously we have also taken on builders cleans end of lease cleans & real estate work, however due to the current workloads we haven't had the capacity to take any more on. This is a unique business as very high standards have always been maintained and the focus has been on this rather than huge growth. You would be buying a quality, not quantity based business. In it's current set up, contractors carry out all the work, therefore the outlay/operating expenses is reasonably high. However there are no overheads and no ongoing large expenses. The sites are generally supplied with any necessary equipment such as mops/buckets etc. and the contractors supply the rest. If you were to buy this business and take on some of the work, the income level would be greatly increased. The potential to take this business to the next level is huge!

The business was started in 2009. With a strong customer service background and a good eye for detail, contracts were secured and for the most part have been in place ever since.
