“I was looking for a new challenge back in 2012 and after much deliberation and research on cleaning franchises I decided to embark upon setting up a business with Betterclean Services. My 3 year business plan set out how I would like to grow my business and after many hours of burning shoe leather I eventually won my first contract, a contract that is still with me today. Once I had this first contract under my belt the second one followed quite swiftly and incidentally this contract is also still with me. My business plan was met in each year comfortably reaching the targets. Since that time the business has grown year on year and in 2015 my wife Linda left her full time job to help run the business which had grown to such a level I was no longer able to run it on my own.

Our success can be attributed to the level of service we give to each of our clients, we are big enough cope but small enough to care. Over the last couple of years we have continued to grow significantly based on our reputation and the many recommendations we receive which have led to new contracts.

We have certainly achieved what we wanted to and have run the business for longer than was originally planned. We set out to retire after 5 years but after 8 years we are finally getting around to it. We will miss dealing with our customers and staff but feel we will be handing over to someone who will continue to grow and care for the business.” – John Goodyear, Managing Director of Betterclean Services York.
