Safeclean’s latest exciting business opportunity is the resale of their well-established Ipswich franchise...
Kerry Ling - Owner of Safeclean Ipswich since 1998
After owning the Safeclean Ipswich Franchise for over 20 years, current owner, Kerry Ling, has made the decision to retire. In 1998, after many years of working in the construction and engineering industry, Kerry wanted to become his own boss and decided the best route for him to do this was by becoming a Franchisee.
After exploring various franchise opportunities Kerry decided the right one for him was Safeclean. An added bonus for him was that his local Safeclean franchise, established since 1980, was for sale. Kerry commented “I had already made my decision to become a Safeclean franchisee, then when the Ipswich franchise became available which already had a great name and customer base, it was too good an opportunity for me to turn down”. He continues, “the fact that the business has been in operation for a total of 39 years is a testament to the strength of the business model and brand name. It shows how stable it is, even in challenging economic climates”.
Kerry’s intention at that time was to own the business for 10 years and then sell the franchise and retire. However, having enjoyed his work so much he’s continued to operate his franchise for 20 years, but now admits he must listen to his wife Anne and enjoy the fruits of his labours by spending more of their time on holiday!
Kerry is now looking to sell the franchise to someone who will continue to provide the high service standards that Kerry has set. He explained, ”I have a very loyal customer base and I am keen to see the Safeclean name continue to have a great reputation in Ipswich. The ideal person would be someone who takes pride in their work, is hardworking, passionate, self-motivated and innovative.
The new franchisee will undergo the full Safeclean training programme to ensure they are completely confident and comfortable.
