But what does this mean in practice?

We share with you our tried and proven methods of finding customers and tailoring our service to suit their needs. We teach you how to recruit and train staff to meet your client’s needs. We show you how to manage this work on an ongoing basis to provide the very best customer service to your clients at a healthy profit for your business.

Let’s talk about money for a minute.

Today the only people who know they are financially secure are those that are in complete control of their destiny – for example business owners who have money flowing into their business accounts every month. Poppies has dozens of franchisees who are in this position. Most Poppies customers have a regular service and pay by Bank Standing Order so your income stream is very dependable.

By adding just one or two customers per month you know that next month you will make more money. Also, because over 90% of Poppies services are regular contracts your business is not seasonal and you are building a business, which with repeat income, is a secure saleable asset.

Our method works equally well in different parts of the country and can be run equally well by men or women. Whilst our top franchisee turned over £650k last year that is not all that can be achieved nor do you have to build a business that large; it is our mission to help you achieve your own goals however large or modest they might be. But, it’s not all about money – our business is very much about people and we help people in a real and meaningful way.

We help clients with their cleaning and other domestic service needs, but what this means to them is that they have more time to spend with their friends and family, work in their own field, enjoy their leisure time or simply enjoy not doing things they would rather do. We enable older clients to stay in their own homes for longer and we help businesses provide a better environment for their staff to work in. Just a few of the reasons we say “Poppies is here to help”

We create jobs too – jobs that are flexible and enable our staff to work around their own commitments in life. Poppies jobs are regular, satisfying and well paid. Of course, everyone has their own story to tell and meeting new people and seeing the life enhancing support that we can provide can be one of the true joys of running a Poppies business.

A large proportion of Poppies franchisees have been in business for 15 years or more and the combined experience of the Poppies network is there for you to access.

Poppies represents a fantastic business opportunity with a proven track record but Poppies is not for everybody and we are very fussy about who we let into our successful network.

We choose our franchisees carefully.
