Franchise Focus – Nick Rayner

Nick joined the Merry Maids franchise network over 8 years ago in 2013 and has grown a great business servicing customers in Milton Keynes. 

We’re grateful to Nick for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions surrounding being an integral part of our franchise network.

Q. What made you want to own your own business? 

A. “I bought the Merry Maids franchise originally because for years and years of working for someone else, I just thought why not give it a go myself, be my own boss with all the challenges you get from Merry Maids it seemed like something I wanted to do.”

Q. What is your lifestyle like as a Merry Maids franchise owner?

A. “I currently have a really good work/life balance.  I’ve got a goos structure, I have an office manager who is brilliant and gives me the time to do stuff that I want to do. Spend time at home, with the family and things like that. Getting the structure right within your business is key to having a good lifestyle.”

Q. What is the support like the brand?

A. “We have good marketing support. They sort out Facebook and social media for us. Leaflet design, they do our leaflet run and then we sort out distributing them. This is brilliant so we don’t have to think about them. We also have local media, newspaper ads and things like that. It puts our name out there and makes people see us.”

It’s important to not just ‘take our word from it’, but hear from our franchise owners too. They have bought in to and operated the brand for months or years. We encourage all prospective franchise owners to reach out to our network as part of their due diligence.
