New Tidy Green Clean franchise aims to disrupt Glasgow commercial cleaning sector
Two Tidy Green Clean regional directors have joined forces with another TGC colleague to launch a new TGC franchise in Glasgow & West. It's the second such joint venture bringing existing TGC franchisees in partnership together, this time building on the success of their existing Tidy Green Clean franchises in Aberdeen North and Forth Valley.
Tidy Green Clean is a leading environmentally friendly commercial cleaning business that operates on a franchise model and the new Tidy Green Clean Glasgow & West is coming to disrupt commercial cleaning across the city.
Scott Melville (pictured left) is the new regional director, who, together with regional directors Igors Krumins (pictured right) and Hugh McGarry (pictured centre) are the co-regional directors for TGC Glasgow & West. Igors and Scott work together in Igors' Aberdeen North TGC franchise and the success of that working relationship spurred them on to approach Hugh McGarry, owner of TGC Forth Valley, to come together to purchase the Tidy Green Clean franchise for Glasgow & West.
TGC has now grown to seven different franchises across Scotland, covering Aberdeen, Highlands & Moray, Forth Valley, Edinburgh and now Glasgow & West.
"To launch our new business in Glasgow, arguably Scotland's most vibrant city, is something we're all excited about,” says Igors. “We know that the Tidy Green Clean business model works; it's highly effective, living out its values and creating substantial jobs for local people and high-level cleaning services for diverse businesses."
"We bring Tidy Green Clean's ISO accreditations, high tech approach, Living Wage standards, and exceptional customer service to disrupt the cleaning expectations of businesses in this city. We know from offices to retail to care homes to industry; working people everywhere are demanding better and need healthy, hygienic workplaces, with high environmental standards - and that's exactly what we deliver."
David Moncur, TGC's co-founder & ops director, believes that the organisation’s track record across Scotland is already speaking for itself. “Our decision to put people and the environment at the heart of all we do, has changed the way people see cleaning in Aberdeen, in the Forth Valley area, in Edinburgh and along the Moray Firth,” he argues.
“Customers benefit from high quality service, the latest cleaning tech and hygienically clean working environments.
“Congratulations to the new Glasgow & West team and best wishes for this new endeavour."
Tidy Green Clean is an environmentally focused national franchise cleaning operation for blue chip organisations and provides local franchisees and regional directors with the knowledge, training and support to be successful business owners, making the business model unique within the facilities management industry. It achieved IS0 9001; 14001; and 45001 in under three years and a place in the top UK franchises, the EF100 for 2020, 2021 and 2022.
Rooted in green practices and technologies, Tidy Green Clean was the first commercial cleaning business in Scotland to achieve a Carbon Negative status via Carbon-Zero. The business is focused on understanding its customers and employees, and how to be successful without that being at the expense of other people or the planet; they have achieved the Achilles UVDB Silver accreditation and are also members of the Living Wage Foundation and the BFA.
