MAIDS4U – A crucial an rewarding service franchise

The services sector in franchising covers a range of sectors with the bottom line being about making life easier! As people become more strapped for time, and with more and more women having to juggle work and home, getting professional and personal cleaning services through franchise companies is becoming more commonplace.

Cleaning is a crucial part of everyone’s lives, whether it’s domestically or for businesses. The Covid-19 pandemic has also resulted in increased awareness of viruses and germs and as a result, cleaning services are in high demand and this trend is expected to continue worldwide.


Recognising the potential of this resilient, recession-proof and extremely profitable franchise opportunity was Lindiwe Shibambo, Founder of Maid4U, who established her premier domestic worker, nanny, au-pair, cleaner and home-based care workers training, recruitment and placement agency and is now a proud member of FASA.

Maid4U’s focus is on a safe and secure platform for households, SMMEs and retirement homes to source reliable, screened and trained employees. With over 7 awards for Good Service, Job Creation, National Business Champion and Premier Award, the franchise is expanding its offering throughout South Africa.

The Maid4U agency provides fully trained, reliable and professional:

  • Domestic workers
  • Nannies
  • Au pairs
  • Home nurses and home caregivers (baby care, childminding, care for the elderly and special needs)
  • Office cleaners/general workers

Additional services include the training of workers, nannies, childminders in cleaning and house-keeping. Training is given in work-related skills such as Cooking, Baking, Laundry and Garment Care. Swimming, driving, First Aid and CPR training is also offered as is time and personal finances management.

The recently launched micro-franchise opportunity offers affordable start-up costs and high returns, explains Lindiwe Shibambo. “Maid4U is looking for female entrepreneurs who have the drive, discipline and passion to build their own legacy, whilst uplifting the lives of others.”

Franchisees receive ongoing support and benefit from training provided to them and their staff members. While franchisees focus on servicing their clients in their assigned locations, head office takes care of all HR, Payroll and legal aspects. Franchisees also run recruitment and training drives for unemployed women in their surrounding communities with the assistance and support of the franchisor.

MAID4U has built a strong digital platform and related systems to ensure the client experience is pleasant and professional. Head Office takes care of all other aspects, including: management and accounting to ensure compliance, operational license renewals, client queries, compilation and registration of all employees and their payslips, legal aspects such as leases, assisting franchisees with applicants’ training, moderation and assessments of trainees, national advertising, marketing, sales, IT aspects and assistance with branch opening dates and campaigns.
