In the centre of Shropshire lies the vibrant community of Telford, a town drawn from several pre-1970s rural hotspots. Today it is a unified locale of 160,000 people, known for its gorgeous views, art exhibitions and long-running British heritage.
Many consider it the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution – those same values have carried over, somewhat, to the New Millennium, as regional ventures have found ways to adapt and thrive for sustained business interests.
Telford sits between the West Midlands and the eastern flank of Wales, giving it access to some of the most diverse service clientele in the country. At its heart, the M54 provides a commuting route, crossed by the A442 leading up to the North of England.
To date, Rainbow International has unveiled several franchise opportunities in Telford, supporting them through a growing list of prospective work. This takes in areas such as Dawley, Kemberton, Shifnal, Donnington and Priorslee, as well as territories further afield.
Current franchisees are able to pursue many avenues here. The manufacturing industry, for example, is going strong – the 2017 workforce was counted at over 8,000 for plant, process and machine operatives. They make up 16% of employment figures, far above the national average of 12.1%.
Alongside this focus on labour infrastructure, Telford has experienced a steady rise in employment stats: up 5%, generally, a year down the line from December 2016. Professional occupations have also climbed higher from 11,700 to 13,200 in the same period. Telford is always need of specialist cleaning teams, like us, to treat their industrial plants, offices, technical research centres and consumer venues.
There is much demand in the area; the advice and guidance we provide to every franchise owner equips them to identify possible revenue streams, and grow a sustainable business model. Additionally, Rainbow’s disaster recovery services are often drawn upon, as extreme weather inflicts damage on rural and urban communities in and around Telford.
