Tidy Green Clean’s Regional Director for Aberdeen South is celebrating a third full year in business, and says, despite it being his most challenging year yet, he has enjoyed some amazing relationships with his customers and won new business. He joined TGC as a franchisee in 2017 and has been the model on which other franchises have learned from.
Grant Peterkin and Tidy Green Clean Aberdeen South provides a full range of commercial cleaning services to businesses across his region. This includes a complete Covid-19 care package to reassure business owners and their people that their premises are sanitised, healthy and hygienic. This includes fogging, deep cleaning and sanitising to provide an environment for companies to return to work in Covid-19 safe working conditions, as well as signage and PPE for companies to ensure their employees feel more safe and secure.
“Like many other business owners, I set demanding targets for 2020 and had huge expectations for the first year of a new decade. The pandemic has interrupted business for all of us, and I am so proud of my team who have risen to every, almost weekly, challenge that was thrown at them through March, April and May of last year. We’ve been instrumental in giving our customers the courage and capacity to return to work, often on a part home, part office/premises basis. We’ve stood with them to make sure that their working environment is as safe and clean as it’s possible to be, and we’ve made a difference in a way I never thought possible.”
Grant was the first franchisee and Regional Director of Tidy Green Clean and has seen the business expand through its environmental credentials, ISO accreditations, tech investments, and Living Wage standards.
Andrew Alleway, TGC’s Managing Director stated,
"Our Regional Directors are given the best start; our franchise model is very attractive and there is no one who has embraced it more than Grant Peterkin. Tidy Green Clean Aberdeen South is an established business in his region and is fulfilling our corporate ambitions to give our Regional Directors thriving commercial enterprises and develop a national brand. It’s been a tough year and Grant and his team have stood on the frontline to support the cleaning and wellbeing needs of their customers; they’ve had an outstanding year on every level."
