Poppies were established in 1980 and in 1984 and became the UK’s first domestic cleaning service franchise, celebrating 40 years of success in 2020.

With franchisees having celebrated over 25 years of business, Poppies has proven to be a business for people looking for sustainable longevity.

Poppies really stands out as a leading franchise model with our track record of success in the domestic cleaning franchise sector. Our ongoing investment in systems and technologies improve our franchisees business efficiencies and increase profits. Enabling franchisees flexibility to dictate their work-life balance.

Our franchise model covers all business areas in a detailed and systematic way – we know exactly what you need to do to be successful in this business. You don’t need to have any previous business experience to be a Poppies franchisee – we give you all of the training, support and systems that you need to be successful.


Our Induction Programme takes you all the way from joining us to providing your very first service.

Delivered in a mixture remote, classroom and on-site sessions, our programme is designed to provide a flexible and digestible way for you to learn all aspects of running a Poppies business.

Your Mentor will be Chris Wootton, Poppies MD, and after running a Poppies branch for over 2 decades, there is no better person to guide and support you through your initial business stage.

On joining our network of franchisees, you will also be surrounded by over a century of cleaning sector experience that you can tap straight into through our peer-to-peer support.

What will I do as a Franchisee

Poppies franchisees have a very stable business model with great residual income.

Most customers are regular users of the service either weekly or fortnightly and this generates positive reliable cash flow with a very high level of client retention.

Our business is growing every year and just a few new clients a month will see your franchise grow and your future selling price increase.

Our franchisees are business managers and managing all areas of the business means that a day is never dull but if you are looking for a proven business that can offer a better work life balance and a good income, Poppies could be the right franchise for you.
