Poppies Franchise

Poppies was established in 1980 in County Durham by new Mum Sue Rorstad. Looking for a job that gave her a healthy income as well as the work life balance she craved, Sue started to look at what opportunities existed. Knowing the problems friends were having finding reliable cleaners, Sue identified that there was a gap for a company that recruited and trained staff to do domestic cleaning and were responsible for making sure staff were reliable. With this in mind, Sue set up Mopps and Co, who provided her local area with a high-quality cleaning service.

As the business grew, another branch was opened in Newcastle. And after attending a course on franchising, Sue decided this was the route she wished her business to take.

Circumstances led the business to change the name to Poppies. In 1984, Poppies sold their first franchise. And testament to the success of the Poppies franchise system, is the fact that owner is still a franchisee 35 years later. In fact, more franchise owners have renewed their franchise agreement at least once, and some twice.
