As the main township in County Shropshire, Shrewsbury has a firm hold on British history stretching back to the Middle Ages. Encircled by the River Severn, and home to 100,000 inhabitants, it is a symbol of progress in the UK – with a bustling trade scene, designer retail stores and plenty of tourist venues aligning for an upmarket picture of rural life.
Shrewsbury is on the cusp of the Welsh Borders, yet enjoys its own distinctive geography, from Gravel Hill in the north to the pristine scenery of Quarry Park at the water’s edge. Our business owners have close access to the A5 and A49 motorways, bringing them to Telford, Stoke-On-Trent, Stafford and a number of other commercial hotspots that are just over an hour’s drive away.
Professional occupations account for 16% of the Shropshire workforce, whilst another 18% is made up of the self-employed. Despite having a fair share of retirement-age residents, Shrewsbury fits into the reality of a market town that’s pushing its entrepreneurial spirit forward for younger people. Many of them, as it happens, have been a brilliant source of business for Rainbow International…
There’s much to take advantage of in the local area for our franchise business owner. On top of its agricultural, manufacturing and educational strengths, Shrewsbury has been swept up in the council’s plans to foster economic change between 2017-21. Already, 2,000 applications have been made to the Marches Growth Hub, which is pushing the area’s status as a fantastic breeding ground for the startup scene.
Rainbow International is catering to all of these flourishing businesses. By delivering a broad range of specialist cleaning services, our franchise owners are able to put the building blocks in place for sustainable growth.
Alongside these services, we attend to some of the 600 or so listed heritage buildings, each of which has their own demands for expert treatment. Our team are able to fulfil these requirements, backed by the training and support we provide from day one.
