Ali Olmez

Under Ali Olmez’s leadership, Jim’s Carpet Cleaning experienced tremendous growth and success. When he took over in 2007, there were only four franchisees operating in his region. Through his exceptional marketing skills and commitment to excellence, Ali transformed it into the leading carpet cleaning service in Victoria with an impressive network of 25 thriving franchisees.


Inspired by this achievement, Ali sought to make an even greater impact. He made the bold decision to sell his thriving Carpet Cleaning Victoria Franchisor Rights and acquire the rights for Jim’s Car Detailing Australia & New Zealand. Once again, this venture proved to be a resounding success for Ali and his team. In recognition of their profitable outcomes and the high satisfaction levels among their 200 franchisees, Jim’s Car Detailing was honored with the prestigious ‘Division of the Year’ prize in 2015.


Ali’s exceptional accomplishments did not go unnoticed. In 2012, Haydar Hussein appointed Ali as the CEO of Jim’s Cleaning Group. Focusing on two key areas – fostering successful franchisees and driving growth – Ali achieved extraordinary results. Under his leadership, Jim’s Cleaning Group expanded from 300 to an astounding 1,350 franchisees, and this number continues to grow every day.


The outstanding performance of Jim’s Cleaning Group caught the attention of industry experts as well. In 2019, it was ranked among the Top 10 franchises in Australia by Top Franchise Awards. Over the next three years, it maintained its position in the Top 10 rankings until finally claiming the coveted title of #1 Australian Franchise.

Haydar Hussein 

Haydar Hussein started his first cleaning company – The Cleaner’s Choice – in 1994. Within six months of operation, he had multiple employees and it was running successfully. Although his company was doing well Haydar wanted more, he wanted it to be a household name. After realising growing his small Melbourne based cleaning company into a household name was financially out of his reach, he set out to explore other avenues. That’s when his research leads him to the already household name in mowing, Jim’s – and I guess you could say “and the rest is history”.

Joining Jims

Haydar purchased a Regional Franchise for Jim’s Cleaning in Western Melbourne and re-branded his existing business. Within 3 years Haydar purchased the remaining regions nationally, giving him sole ownership of the “Jim’s Cleaning” empire, adding another chapter to the success story. As the National Franchisor responsible for leading and growing the Jim’s Cleaning division Haydar knew he could do more than just cleaning.

Within the next few years, Haydar introduced new divisions and re-branded Jim’s Cleaning into the Jim’s Cleaning Group. Haydar wanted to create a 1 stop shop for all your cleaning needs and that is why the Jim’s Cleaning Group now offers, Car Detailing, Blind Cleaning & Repairs, Carpet Cleaning and Window & Pressure Cleaning. 

Due to Haydar’s forward thinking nature, he has grown the Jim’s Cleaning Group from 2 franchisees to over 900 franchisees! The Jim’s Cleaning Group has changed the lives of 100s of Australian and New Zealanders through providing job security, work life balance and an uncapped income potential.

A shared philosophy

Jim’s Cleaning offers a wide range of training programs for its franchisees who, in turn, provide the highest quality service and work to both the commercial and domestic market, all in accordance with Australian Standards. Both Jim and Haydar share a common philosophy that a focus on service to customers, as well as doing the job faster and better is the key to success. Thousands of Australian homes and businesses who have utilised the service now understand there is a “Jim’s difference” and why they are market leaders.
