The owners of ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Warwick, Michal Kawerski and Dariusz Kowalik have won the prestigious Rookie of the Year award at this year’s ‘ServiceMaster Live’ event.
ServiceMaster Live, which took place this May, is an annual gathering of franchisees from across the ServiceMaster UK brand family. This has been the first time the conference has been able to run since 2019 due to the limitations to public gatherings brought in to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Now finally together again, the event saw franchisees and their teams recognised for their hard work in overall customer service, sales, marketing efforts, resilience in the face of hardships, charity and community work and more, in an awards ceremony at the close of the day. It was a first-time win for Michal and Dariusz from ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Warwick, who began their business during the pandemic and amidst lockdowns in August of 2020. Despite the challenges that came with starting a business in such difficult and uncertain times, the pair were able to rise to the occasion and prove worthy winners of the ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Rookie of the Year award.
Michal & Dariusz came to ServiceMaster with previous experience of owning a commercial and domestic cleaning company. Michal has built himself from the ground up, beginning his career in the cleaning industry as a daily cleaner before becoming a supervisor. When he then began his own cleaning business, Michal was struck by how the industry was evolving. He says he witnessed the change in attitudes to cleaning due to the COVID pandemic as he saw more and more people recognise the importance of regularly cleaning and sanitising their premises. Michal and Dariusz knew they could do more, and set their sights on growing a bigger and better business. And although Michal and Dariusz knew the industry and the processes that came with it, they also knew they didn’t want to enter into the unknown alone, and wanted the support and backing of a well-known brand. Michal was already intimately familiar with the ServiceMaster Clean brand as a result of working within our network before for one of our franchises, so the pair knew that with the backing of the ServiceMaster Clean brand, they could grow a truly thriving business.
And they have done just that. Rookie of the Year is awarded to franchisees that are considered brand new to our network – meaning that they have been in business for less than two years. It recognises franchisees who have implemented the ServiceMaster systems to substantially grow their business. For Guy Strang, ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Brand Leader and Marketing Manager Victoria Tayler, Michal & Dariusz were the clear choice for the winners of this coveted award.
“I am delighted that Michal & Dariusz have won Rookie of the Year. Having previously owned a commercial Cleaning Company, they have fully embraced the ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Brand and our values and created a fantastic business that will go from strength to strength,” said Marketing Manager Victoria Tayler.
Not only does winning this award solidify the successes of Michal and Dariusz’s journey, but Michal says that winning Rookie of the Year is giving them a boost.
“Aside from making us feel good, [an award like Rookie of the Year] can also offer a great boost to business. An award brings credibility and opens doors to new opportunities. It can impress potential clients, boost sales, and improve employee engagement and loyalty.” Not only that, but Michal says that is proof that they have achieved their goals, and serves as a demonstration “that we take pride in what we do and that we do it well.” He says that he and Dariusz attribute their early success to “staying passionate and focused on [their] goals.”
So, it’s onwards and upwards for ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Warwick. This award has galvanised its owners to keep going above and beyond in providing their quality and professional premises cleaning services to each and every one of their clients.
And with over 60 years as industry-leading contract cleaning specialists, it’s no wonder that both public and private sector establishments nationwide trust ServiceMaster Clean to deliver a bespoke and professional service every time.
