The steps to becoming a Poppies franchisee

A clean process to getting started as a business owner

Discuss the opportunity

We believe in a transparent, two-way process of getting to know each other before you take on a franchise. The first step in your research is getting in touch with us to receive a franchise opportunity prospectus.

This will illustrate the many benefits owning a Poppies domestic cleaning business will have on your life and provide an overview on our processes and ways of working.

You will also have the opportunity to speak with the team and ask them any questions you may have, so you can feel comfortable you’re making the right choice for you.

Secure your investment

The next stage is to put the finances required to start your franchise in place.

The total investment required to start a Poppies business is approximately £23,000 +VAT, but owing to our fantastic relationships with high street lenders, you could get started with just £8,250 liquid capital.

Detailed information – and how it specifically relates to your current situation – will be discussed as part of your calls with the team.

Create a business plan

With funding secured, it’s time to tidy up your plans for the future! We’ll work with you at every stage to create a detailed business plan to establish and grow your Poppies cleaning franchise. This will take into account your circumstances and a strategy to ensure you have sufficient capital for when you’re ready to expand.

Don’t worry if you have little previous experience in the nuts and bolts of business: we have helped dozens of people just like you to create the perfect Poppies business plan and our team will be on hand throughout to help guide you.

Personalised training

Once your Poppies roadmap is laid out, it’s time to scrub up on your knowledge. We provide best-in-class training which is fully tailored around your existing transferable skills, ensuring you’re fully equipped with the tools and knowledge you need to build your business.

Supporting you doesn’t stop there, either. As part of our buddy programme, all new franchisees are carefully paired with an existing business owner to empower you with the support and confidence to make your future in the Poppies family a success.

Launch your Poppies business

With plans finalised and initial training complete, it’s time to launch your very own Poppies business and start hoovering up clients!

We will assist you in all aspects of the business’ launch, including sales and marketing, so you can get off to the best possible start.

Ongoing training and support are provided as standard, so you can continue to develop your skill set in line with the changing needs of your business.
