Company Overview

White Knight Laundry Services was founded in 1904 as a single site small laundry in Kilburn, north London. More than 100 years later, we continue to provide laundry and dry cleaning services and linen hire to thousands of businesses and domestic customers across the south east from three sites in Reading, Eastbourne and Woking. As well as domestic customers, we work extensively in the hotel, restaurant, healthcare, education and industry sectors. Our new £3m steam-free laundry in Reading makes us one of the most advanced and energy efficient laundry companies in the UK.

Franchise Overview

We have 13 franchises covering south east England, with areas based on postcodes. Our franchises have enjoyed growing success since they were first established in 2004.  As a White Knight franchisee, you will be living our company values…commitment to our clients, flexibility, innovation, excellence, respect, honesty. A number of existing franchisees were previously employees of White Knight and were familiar with the laundry industry; others came from a wide variety of backgrounds. All have developed and grown and some have taken over two franchise areas.

Training

We have a dedicated business development training programme which includes all aspects of sales training to maximise the market place as well as training on the laundry and dry cleaning processes. We have a marketing department to help with promotional campaigns to increase sales, as well as a customer service support team to help with the day-to-day running of franchise areas.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Much of the time is spent ‘on the road’ collecting & delivering laundry. Your van is crucial to your business. You will establish a routine and route for collecting & delivering in certain areas on particular days of the week.  Over time you will establish good relationships with customers; many look forward to the visits and enjoy a chat or cup of tea! Many franchisees enjoy the solitude of the driving, but love the interaction with their customers as well as the variety that the job offers.
