Congrats Uresh Patel (West Auckland) on winning Franchisee of the Month Award – Clean Planet nation-wide


My name is Uresh Patel. I am originally from India, however I have called New Zealand home since 2009. At the moment I am a commercial cleaning franchisee of Clean Planet for West Auckland. I started as a cleaner with one of the cleaning companies in New Zealand, I have been in this industry for ten years. Over the year, I have grown from a cleaner to a site manager and then a franchise owner.

As I have been in the cleaning industry for a really long time, I’ve had the opportunity in making comparisons in which I chose Clean Planet over other companies in the market. First and foremost, Clean Planet is the only cleaning company in New Zealand awarded by the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation New Zealand which means that the cleaning products are good for our health and excellent for the office air quality and environment too. This is vital because as franchisees, we surround ourselves with these cleaning chemicals all the time, all day everyday so make a good choice of which company to work with. Furthermore, Clean Planet gets very good reference from other existing franchisees. They recommended me to the company and until now, I am still happy with this decision.


In regards to commercial cleaning industry, I would say that it’s a very competitive field; however, as long as we provide an excelling service, maintain an excellent customer service, we can keep the business and grow the business. In addition, I cover a lot of cleaning services such as carpet shampoo, floor scrub, floor buff and polish so our clients can get one-stop service from Clean Planet.



I receive very good leadership and management from our Master Franchise owner Rajesh Vasa. He communicates with franchisees very often; he also nominated me to be franchisee of the month with Clean Planet nation-wide so I am very grateful and honoured.


In the future I would like to grow my cleaning business with Clean Planet so as to offer clients more variety in the professional cleaning services as I mentioned earlier and make Clean Planet a one-stop shop for all commercial and domestic cleaning service in New Zealand.
