5 reasons to buy a commercial cleaning business in 2023
19 Dec 22
Have you been thinking about starting a small business next year? With the rising cost of living – coupled with a boom in demand and industry growth – there are many great reasons to consider a commercial cleaning business.
#1 High demand and industry growth
Did you know that even during the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for cleaning services (including commercial cleaning) increased? And as offices return to normal staffed hours, the industry is expected to grow by 6.3 percent CAGR (compound annual growth rate) each year.
When you consider that the booming commercial cleaning sector had a 55% market share in 2019, buying a commercial cleaning business can be a very viable option.
#2 Predictable income
All that increased demand and growth means one thing: consistent, steady income. It goes without saying that offices and other workplaces will always need cleaning services – even during global pandemics, it turns out!
So if you’re looking to buy a business that can weather any storm and provide a fairly predictable income, a commercial cleaning business can be a great option – especially if you focus on providing quality, consistent service to your clients.
#3 Well-established brand
The best thing about buying an existing commercial cleaning business is that you don’t have to start out from scratch. Instead of taking years to build a brand and solid reputation, you can get started with the structure, support and marketing strategies you need to start growing your customer base from day one.
Of course, you’ll want to do your research and choose a commercial cleaning franchisor like V.I.P. that’s well-known in Australia, and continually invests in its systems and support for franchisees.
#4 Be the boss
People from all walks of life have become V.I.P. Commercial Cleaning franchisees. But what they all have in common is a desire for more freedom, flexibility and financial control – which is precisely what buying a commercial cleaning business can give you!
You can choose when, where and for how many hours you work, which is ideal if you want to fit clients around your day job, family or other commitments. You can even grow your business to the point where you need to hire staff, which can provide you with even greater income opportunities.
Did we mention the best part? Because you’ll often start your day when others end theirs, you can kiss the morning commute goodbye!
#5 Fast start
Another great reason to buy a commercial cleaning business in 2023 is that you don’t need a lot (or any!) industry experience to get started. And because the franchisor will be able to supply and/or guide you to buy the right products and equipment for the job, there are very few barriers to starting and growing your business quite quickly.
