Local entrepreneur launches a new cleaning franchise!

Contract Cleaning Franchise Opportunities

Local businessman Chris Blewitt has launched a commercial office cleaning franchise business operating across Durham and Teesside and is already looking for new staff to join the new venture.

No stranger to cleaning, Chris’s family owned and operated a successful Dry Cleaning and Laundry business in the North East for over 30 years and Chris has spent over 25 years in operational roles for successful blue-chip organisations, managing large teams of people.


His new business ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services is a franchise of ServiceMaster, one of the UK’s leading and longest-established, multi-brand franchisors.

Chris said: “I left my old role to launch my own business and chose the franchising route to start out on my own because of the strength of the back-up support. I also wanted a scalable business that I could one day bring my family into and I’m already working closely with my daughter, Jessica who is studying business at college in Newcastle.

“ServiceMaster Clean has a fantastic reputation in commercial cleaning and I’m excited to start meeting new clients and employing new staff. The level of professionalism and service we can offer will help us stand out.”

Chris’s business will operate across Durham and Teesside and provide commercial cleaning and daily office cleaning solutions for businesses of all sizes.


Guy Strang, brand operations manager for ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services added: “We’re delighted to welcome Chris to the cleaning franchise network and we’re confident his business will be a success. He has shown great character and a desire to succeed; two things you need to be successful in the commercial cleaning sector.”

ServiceMaster has over 300 franchisees operating in close to 700 licensed areas under its brands, including Merry Maids, ServiceMaster Clean, Furniture Medic, TruGreen Professional LawnCare and Rosemary Bookkeeping. Looking for a local commercial cleaning? Find your nearest here!
