Daily Poppins cleans 1,000,000 households
With over 1,000,000 housecleans undertaken, Daily Poppins has been rapidly growing its franchise network over the last 10 years across the UK and now Ireland. Initially established in Reading by Managing Director, Nigel Bearman, the first franchise owner Agnes Gasceka was researching for a business which fitted in with her lifestyle when she came across Daily Poppins franchise opportunity.
Gasceka commented: “I was looking for a business which I could manage from home. I was expecting my first child and really wanted a level of flexibility in my everyday work. Daily Poppins provided me with exactly what I was looking to do. I was comfortable managing people so this allowed me to manage cleaners while at the same time not be tied down into fixed daily routines. Now I have three kids, I am turning over around £500,000 and I do whatever I want during the day, no nine to five office working.”
Now with around 60 territories franchised, Daily Poppins is growing in Ireland with Tony Macken already establishing a successful operation in Cork. After initially taking early retirement, Macken decided to come back into business and set up the first Daily Poppins franchise in the Emerald Isle.
“Franchising was the easiest route back into being your own boss because you have the support of an experienced franchisor and a tried-and-tested business model. My wife and I decided to attend a franchise exhibition and were impressed with the growth potential of the domestic cleaning sector. We have certainly not been disappointed with Daily Poppins and with the economy on the turn, the future for us looks very good indeed”
