Dolly Char Domestic Cleaning Franchise Company History So Far   


Dolly Char Domestic Cleaning Company History so far!

Dolly Char Domestic Cleaning Company was started during the early part of 2001 by Robin and Carol Harrison.  And as expected, demand was very high for the Dolly Char domestic cleaning services. Domestic cleaning and ironing is a help to many people in all types of situations, and we believed from that outset in providing a professional service that customers would recommend to others.  

During the early part of 2004 Dolly Char Ltd as we had now become were extremely proud to be accepted as corporate members of the British Institute of Cleaning Science and as such we strive to uphold and maintain the high standards laid down by them.  The British Institute of Cleaning Science website can be viewed by clicking on their logo to the left.

During  the later stages of 2004 we took the decision to franchise our business on a national basis throughout the UK by forming a new specialist franchise company called Dolly Char (UK) Ltd due to the great demand that we were getting for our domestic cleaning  services from further and further a field. 

Dolly Char employed the services of The Franchise Company from Darlington to perform a feasibility study on the strengths and weaknesses of the Dolly Char model and help fine tune the business in readiness for its national launch.  After extensive work over a two year period the Dolly Char franchise was officially launched in 2006 through a 5 week run in the Daily Express.

At present Dolly Char as in excess of 25 franchised agencies from Fife up in Scotland down to Eastbourne on the south coast.

2011 witnessed the 10th anniversary of Dolly Char and to mark this milestone a very special evening of events was held at the Admiral Rodney Hotel Horncastle for franchisees  including a guest speaker (Robert Bullard), franchisee awards etc.  Our first ever franchisee of the year was announced and this honour fell to Chris Smith from Dolly Char Eastbourne

2012 It was decided to enlist the services of a franchisee recruitment manager and brand guardian to assist us in the marketing and recruitment of new franchisees along with the policing of the Dolly Char Brand.
