Barbecue Cleaning Business
By Eric Hammer
Here's a fact: barbecue cleaning is a dirty business and few
people want to be bothered with it; especially when the barbecue
in question is old and encrusted with years of drippings and
gunk. However, the fact that so many people don't find the idea
of having to clean off the barbecue to be appealing is also an
opportunity for you to make a good living running a barbecue
The way it works if that people bring their barbecue to you
and you have special equipment designed to power blast away years
of stuck on grease and gunk. Then, the customer walks away with
a nice clean barbecue and you walk away with a paycheck for having
done a job for them that they couldn't or wouldn't do for themselves.
There are actually a number of franchise opportunities in
this business and it's a field which is continuing to experience
growth as more and more people are turning to services such as
this to help them do a dirty job.
How Much Can You Make?
The amount you can make, as with any business opportunity
is really up to you. However, a typical professional cleaning
goes for around $100-$150 each so you can do the math on how
much you'll make after initial expenses are taken out.

Of course while barbecue cleaning is one dirty job people
don't like to do, another one is cleaning ovens and cleaning
stove tops. Just as barbecue cleaning is popular, offering to
clean other gunky appliances in the home can also be quite lucrative.
The difference however is that you won't have clients taking
their oven to you. You'll have to come to them to clean the oven
Keep in mind as well that a barbecue cleaning business is
by definition a seasonal business. It's one where you'll be working
a lot during the spring and summer but not nearly as much in
the winter (fall could see some business from people who are
trying to be responsible and get their barbecue cleaning done
before the winter).
Qualifications / Requirements
You'll need to be physically able to handle the equipment
and you'll need the money to purchase your franchise, however
beyond that there are no additional requirements involved in
starting a barbecue cleaning business.
