Local teacher ditches books for dusters by launching new eco-friendly cleaning business
Yorkshire born and bred teacher Emma Bini has returned home to swap her career in education for a new national domestic housekeeping franchise business, Bright & Beautiful®, covering York, Wetherby, Boston Spa, Tadcaster and the surrounding areas.
Prior to becoming a new franchise owner, Emma dedicated her time to teaching modern foreign languages (MFL) in secondary schools where she specialised in French and Spanish. Following her time studying in Spain, Emma spent a year teaching in Venezuela before returning to her home county Yorkshire.
After 13 years of working in education and juggling a young family, Emma decided that she wanted a change of career that would allow her to take control of her destiny. She chose to buy a franchise as she had always wanted to be her own boss, and felt that the managerial and organisational skills she had gained from leading seven other MFL teachers would be transferable and invaluable to the day to day running of her own business.
Launching on 1st August, Emma will be accompanied by her trusted team of three local professional housekeepers, all of whom have been carefully selected, referenced and DBS checked, and they will work in teams to ensure reliability and client peace of mind. The teams will deliver a bespoke and tailored service that offers cleaning, tidying, laundry and ironing to the highest standards of security and service and will only use eco-friendly products and equipment to ensure they protect the health of their clients, their children and the team.
Emma said: “When I first decided to make a career change, I initially considered starting up a business on my own, but quickly realised that my lack of business experience would hinder my potential. Franchising seemed to provide the perfect balance of having the freedom to grow my own business, while receiving the support and expertise that I was missing.
“Having had some unsatisfactory cleaning experiences myself, I could certainly see the demand for a reliable client-facing company. When I heard about Bright & Beautiful’s level of professionalism and their eco-friendly and ethical ethos, I just knew it would be a perfect fit. I’m so excited to get this business going and to begin delivering a world class service to my local community.”
Based in York, Bright & Beautiful covers Wetherby, Boston Spa, Collingham, Linton, Tadcaster, Bishopthorpe, Copmanthorpe, Green Hammerton, Poppleton, Wheldrake and Escrick. Emma joins the growing national network of over 65 franchisees each building their own local business, creating over 700 jobs and delivering more than 10,000 home cleans per month.
