IWelcome to Passmore Cleaning’s 2018 blog!
This first post is dedicated to our start-up story and how a very determined Mum of four built Passmore Cleaning from the ground up last year and now employs ten staff and counting. All with a bucket, some elbow grease and an electric bike!
Lets rewind back to March 2017 when everything kicked off.
After a few hardworking months of being both self-employed and employed Sharon Passmore (founder) decided to take the leap of starting her own business and with all guns blazing, waved goodbye to hired life
But the decision wasn’t one you’d normally hear in a start-up tale. Sharon started the business as a knee-jerk reaction to get out of the single-parent income prison of the government’s tax credit system and to blow a raspberry in the face of it.
Also, working on minimum wage and supporting an entire household with four scallywags on your own is bloody difficult and Sharon had enough.
In true family spirit, when Sharon told her children that she intended to start a business, everyone was excited chipped in. They all supported each other and contributed to allow Passmore Cleaning to be born!
In March, the website and brand (created by her daughter) went live and fingers were crossed for the work to come in. Within the first week, the phone was ringing! This was followed by an email from Falmouth Town Council itself to put a quote in for the Municipal Building on Falmouth Moor! After winning the quote, Passmore Cleaning grew from strength to strength to become the busy, ethical and hardworking company it is today.
From this, Sharon is dedicated to paying her staff above minimum wage and delivering a reliable and friendly cleaning service to all her clients.
So now you know!
Happy New Year, thank you for reading and we will be back next week!
