Gold Coast-based franchise has sky-high plans to launch James' Commercial this year
‘Gold Coast-based franchise cleaning business James’ Home Services is aiming sky-high, launching a commercial arm.
James’ Commercial will service high-rise buildings, hotels, schools, aged care facilities and hospitals.
Gold Coast businessman and cleaning industry veteran Mike Dowling took over the embattled business in 2015, throwing the business financial lifeline and increasing the number of franchisees by about 45 per cent.
After moving its head office to to the Coast, Mr Dowling said he was prepared to expand into new markets to grow the business.
Mr Dowling said more than $25 billion worth of commercial property changed hands each year, creating enormous demand, particularly for end-of-lease and ongoing cleaning services.
“There is a major gap in the market and I believe James’ Commercial can fill it, and fill it well,” Mr Dowling said.
The service will also target warehouses, medical and health facilities and financial institutions.
Since Mr Dowling took over the reins, James’ Home Services has grown rapidly and now has 147 residential focused franchisees operating around Australia.
“Commercial cleaning often means bigger jobs and can frequently be one after hours so there is a huge scope for new franchisees interested in working flexible hours,” he said. “James’ Commercial will take on long-term contracts as well as one-off commercial jobs.”‘ (Author unknown, published in The Gold Coast Bulletin, 13th of May, 2017).
