Select from home improvement franchises, maintenance, and more!
Join one of the most lucrative industries in Portugal – home services. Experiencing a solid 11% average growth between 2016 and 2021, the cleaning sector alone was valued at around €1.1 billion in 2021.
This means that Portugal ranks around 13th out of countries in Europe in terms of cleaning industry size. But it has a few key factors that set it apart in terms of being the ideal place to open your own home maintenance or home improvement franchise.
One of those factors is the tourist trade. Portugal is one of the most desirable tourist destinations in Europe. In normal times, this means there is a high demand for cleaning services. Post-pandemic, this is only increasing. In its striving to attract new tourists in the wake of the coronavirus, the country has instituted the “Clean and Safe” program. This seal identifies companies that have high cleanliness standards – and has exacerbated the country's need for reliable cleaning providers.
The best franchises to open in Portugal's high-demand market include:
Cleaning business franchiseTurnover: POR Net profit: POR Investment: POR
Enter a fast-growing industry that still has no clear leaders when it comes to competition. There are several thousand cleaning businesses covering various parts of Portugal, but none has even approached a 5% market share. This makes it the ideal market to enter with the support of an internationally-known brand and franchise network behind you.
Whether you want to open your own oven cleaning franchise for residents, or the best carpet cleaning franchise catering to the huge number of rented holiday homes and Airbnb properties, Portugal is a great market to target with your new business.
GardeningTurnover: POR Net profit: POR Investment: POR
Start your own business in an industry that lets you spend time in Portugal's stunning outdoors – as well as being one of the sectors of the local economy most primed for growth. Because from taking indoors rooms outside to more high-tech gadgets in the average garden, Portugal has been seeing some big garden crazes in recent years.
Like the Fantastic Services gardening franchises we've already helped other entrepreneurs set up on three different continents, you will have a central team of more than five hundred people supporting your business as you open and grow.
Handyman franchiseTurnover: POR Net profit: POR Investment: POR
Become part of a local sector that is crying out for more professionalisation and expertise. Most handymen and home services professionals in Portugal tend to have little training. This means that a Fantastic Services handyman franchise – where extensive training and qualified expertise are key – can be big drivers of business.
Set yourself apart from the local competition by being able to provide the assurance of quality that only comes from trained professional staff and operating under a known international brand.
