Why would you want to become self employed and run your own business?

There are many good reasons for wanting this:

  • Independence
  • Pride of ownership
  • Control over your future
  • Rewards according to the effort you put in
  • Not having to work for a low hourly pay
  • No fear of redundancy
  • You decide how much you get paid each week
  • You decide how many hours you work

Why buy a Franchise?

You buy into a tried and proven system which has been running for many years, so you know it works. Help is always at hand from people who have made and overcome all the usual mistakes, so you don’t have to! You are your own boss answerable to no one but yourself, without the worry of “going it alone”.

What is the single most likely reason which discourages anyone from starting their own business?

The question: “Will I be able to find enough work to pay my bills and make a living?” The Plumtree Window Cleaning franchise offer is different to most other franchises because we supply as much work as you need, so the worry of setting up your own business is taken away. We'll also help you to set up your accounts and keep your daily records until you are confident to do it on your own.

There's no pressure, you reach the level that suits you. Some of our franchise owners are perfectly happy working around 30 hours a week and earning a very good income. Others want more, we'll grow your business to the level you decide is right for you.

How much does it cost?

Most franchises under £15k are unlikely to generate a full time income. A good carpet cleaning franchise will cost between £20k and £30k, plus the expense of a new van. Retail franchises can cost up to half a million pounds and more. Our Franchise package costs just £8,995 and we supply all the work you need!

What is provided?

The franchise package costs just £8,995 and includes:

  • License to trade under the "Plumtree Window Cleaning" brand
  • Customer work list provided from day one
  • Central website with direct booking and head office support
  • Automated direct debit & card processing channels

  • Hose reel and hoses
  • Plumtree van livery & workwear

  • Full training & support for as long as you need it
  • Plumtree marketing material

The package entitles you to trade under the name of “Plumtree Window Cleaning”, a respected and recognised local business which has great customer reviews. It also guarantees that we'll supply you with at least £500 worth of work per week so you're earning money and making a profit from day one. In subsequent months your workload will be expanded to suit your requirements up to an agreed maximum yearly turnover.

The franchise fee doesn’t include a van. You'll need to acquire a suitable van. It doesn’t have to be new, but it must be legal, clean, tidy and presentable. Van colour must be white and have a min payload of 1000kg. You also have the option of renting one of our window cleaning vans.

Building your business

Almost every franchised business requires the new franchise owner to find his own customers, so even after paying £15k, £20k or even £50k you still start with nothing. Even worse, with most businesses you need a constant supply of new customers so a big percentage of your effort and income is directed at marketing rather than earning.

With a Plumtree Window Cleaning franchise all the work is provided so the new franchise owner can concentrate on learning the business and earning a good income from day one.


We provide a full week of training in all aspects of the business, we teach you how to clean windows with a water fed pole, equipment set up and maintenance, how to opearte your scheduling software & payment channels.

All our work is completed using the “water fed pole” window cleaning method, Your feet are always firmly on the ground and no ladder work is involved. This is followed by all the help, advice and encouragement you need on a daily basis for as long as you own your franchise.

Expected Earnings & Prospects

Operating a Plumtree Window Cleaning franchise is very profitable, tax efficent and enjoyable. Earnings which are far greater than the average salary is easily acheivable. Full details of the finances and projected earnings will be discussed in greater detail at your franchise meeting.

Looking to the future, there is scope to develop your business as far as you want to. Some of our franchise owners have multiple vans on the road.
