An East Anglian cleaning and maids service has continued to expand by winning a region-wide contract with a building maintenance company.

Girl Fridays, which is based in Sudbury, will be carrying out “sparkle cleans” for DRBS East on properties under its management across the East of England.

Since its launch in 2010 as a “one band band” with a handful of customers, Girl Fridays has grown into a six-figure turnover business with more than 80 clients and a current total of 28 directly employed staff.

Vicki Arrowsmith, managing director of Girl Fridays, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by DRBS East Ltd to carry out ‘sparkle cleans’ on the properties they manage across the East of England. This latest contract win is part of our continual growth, which we predict will increase again over the next 12 months.

“We have grown every year since 2010 and the demand for our services continues to grow. We are already in negotiation with two other successful organisations and if these prove to be successful we will be recruiting further members of staff.”

David Russo, director of DRBS East, which is based in Haverhhill, said: “We are delighted with the level of service provided to us by Girl Fridays; they always complete the task to a very high standard, on time and within budget. It is essential all our properties are maintained to the absolute highest standard.”

Besides domestic and office cleaning, Girl Fridays also provides other services including prescription collection, shopping, plant tending, laundry, ironing and dog walking.
