Molly MaidsA franchise you can manage
The Molly Maid service provides high quality reliable domestic cleaning operated by Franchise Owners who manage teams of maids within an exclusive area. Although some sales and management experience is an advantage, our franchise partners come from all walks of life. The qualities we look for are human attributes such as common sense, ability to get on with people and a willingness to work hard. What our franchise partners have in common is the desire to follow our system and to succeed.

Molly Maid focuses purely on providing a professional domestic cleaning service and is a household name so there is no hard sell involved.
