Our Story

Meet Rachel Ray founder of Bright & Beautiful the ethical, professional and eco-friendly homecare business, designed for busy people.

Having spent 15 years working in London and Australia as a Chartered Accountant and Business Consultant, Rachel was juggling her career and young family. Between business meetings, bath-times and bed-times, shopping, cooking, cleaning and trying to spend “quality time with the family”- something had to give! Rachel decided that the thing she most wanted to ditch was the household chores (rather than time with the family!) and looked for a domestic cleaning company to help. She was shocked to find an industry full of low quality providers and a work-force with little or no employment rights. Standards and reliability were low and the cleaning products were the usual toxic unhealthy brands.

So in 2007 Rachel launched Bright & Beautiful in Altrincham, UK. Right from the very first client the ethos was of pure, natural cleaning products; full fair employment rights for the team and an exceptional housekeeping service for clients.

Since then the business has grown from strength to strength with franchisees around the UK employing carefully vetted professional housekeepers and servicing thousands of clients.
