Launched in 2006, Clear Brew is now the UK’s leading independent beer line cleaning company with 50 franchisees across the UK.
Clear Brew provides a fully managed, regular, dedicated beer line cleaning service to many of the UK’s licensed premises; from the obvious traditional pub to hotels, social clubs, bingo halls, restaurants, golf clubs, holiday parks, sports and social clubs; a marketplace with thousands of potential clients.
Clear Brew is now looking to expand our extensive presence throughout the UK and looking for like-minded individuals to join our franchise family.
The Clear Brew franchise model
Franchising successfully since 2012, the beauty of the Clear Brew model is its simplicity. It is easy to learn, straightforward to manage and can deliver high profitability by offering a service with repeat custom and great job satisfaction.
Our specialist equipment allows franchisees to clean both keg and cask lines, maintaining dispense quality on a regular 3 weekly cycle.
With low overheads and the potential to earn over £1000 per week, our franchisees benefit from retaining control over their work/life balance whilst enjoying the satisfaction associated with owning their own business.
For those wishing to increase their earning potential, there are opportunities to develop into a full management franchise operation i.e. employ staff to do the cleaning whilst you focus on growing the business.

What we look for in a franchisee
Our franchisees come from a variety of background with the majority having NO prior knowledge of the beer line cleaning process. What they do have in common is the drive, desire and determination required to succeed in their own business.
“My business and that of the other Clear Brew operators continues to grow, and my initial concerns of going it alone were unfounded and I now find myself enjoying being part of a large national team with great support, yet with the rewards of operating my own business.”
Mick Woods, Clear Brew Preston
“As a single parent with limited working time, I was looking for a business that I could tailor to suit my available working times. Also I needed room for growth with great support and a product I could really believe in. Not only is Clear Brew all those things, its actually like joining a professional family. #BestMoveEver”
