SWISHER HYGIENE UK Ltd - Cleaning Franchise

About us:

Established in the UK in 1997, Swisher is an international organisation that has become a leading brand within the washroom, cleaning and franchising sectors.

With weekly repeat business, little competition and low overheads each Swisher franchise has continuous and an almost unlimited growth potential. Franchisees can build high revenue businesses with high gross margins and net profits and receive an excellent return on their capital to provide financial security for both themselves and their family in the future.

With rising concerns surrounding MRSA, E-Coli and other contagious diseases, it is essential that washrooms and kitchens are protected from becoming the primary breeding ground for these types of harmful germs and bacteria.

Swisher is the only national franchise that provides a unique weekly washroom cleaning and sanitation service plus additional products to commercial premises and public sector buildings. This specialist service is designed to improve the cleanliness and hygiene of the washroom area whilst enhancing the overall image of the business.

Swisher offers a comprehensive training package which is tailored to suit the needs of each new franchisee. Excellent initial training is provided as well as extensive ongoing training programmes designed for both franchisees and their senior staff.

Financial Information:

The fee for a Swisher franchise is £30,000 + VAT. A further £25,000 - £50,000 working capital will be required to set up the business (depending on structure, funding requirements and other standard business considerations). The total investment will be approximately between £55,000 - £80,000.

The banks, subject to status, will lend up to 70% of the total amount required and Swisher also offers support through the DTI Small Firms Loan Guarantee scheme. All you will need to join Swisher is your own personal available liquid capital of £25,000.

Who's Ideal for Us:

“ To go it alone after working in employment for 35 years was a difficult decision but I found Swisher to be an excellent Franchise both in the way it was organised and in their training and support. I found that not only was the initial training ideal, but the ongoing support that followed was excellent and I felt that I could go forward and build my business with confidence. I now have 200 customers, 7 staff and a turnover of over £300K. My next goal is to achieve a £1 million turnover within the next 4 years...”
Terry Iles (Swisher Swindon)

“I was attracted to Swisher’s unique service, the high net profit opportunities and the chance to grow a business with a capital value, which I could realise for retirement. Swisher Corporate are very helpful and the level of support between franchisees is also excellent. Swisher are very selective about the franchisees that join and accordingly there is a very high standard calibre of franchisee within the Swisher network which reflects well on each franchise across the UK...”
John Ross (Swisher Central Scotland)

“I researched numerous franchises but found Swisher to be very helpful and open, a fact not reflected in the many other franchises I looked into. I was impressed at how ethical Swisher was and particularly liked the potential of building a viable business quickly. I had no knowledge of the cleaning industry or washroom sector but it has been a great learning experience supported throughout by Swisher Corporate, who understand the industry and are at its forefront...”
Jeremy Mumford (Swisher Colchester)


Swisher are very careful with their franchisee selection to ensure that whoever they appoint will have the best possible opportunity to make a success of their business. We currently have opportunities for the right people in many areas across the UK including a number of resale opportunities.
