Some franchise sectors have major ties with seasonal developments. The fitness franchise industry, for example, relies solidly on a strong January, as people who've overindulged over Christmas or made New Year's resolutions to exercise take on gym membership. Now there's evidence emerging to prove that the annual spring clean is creating incredible opportunity for the cleaning franchise sector.
The Street, one of the best online business resources, had a very topical article on the subject of the link between spring cleaning and cleaning franchises recently. The article served to promote the industry and show that for people who are simply too strapped for time, cleaning franchises can step into the void and assist citizens as they do their cleaning.
The article especially highlights the work that the likes of Mr Handyman, College Hunks Hauling Junk, Fresh Coat Painters, Clean Air Lawn Care and Oxi Fresh Carpeting do. But as Mr. Handyman President Alex Roberts told The Street, the success of the sector is not just a seasonal development: this is an industry that's hear to stay.
"People's biggest investment are in their homes and the services we provide with repairs, maintenance and improvements are not going away anytime soon, nor can they be outsourced or replaced by technology," he said.
