Office Pride: A Faith-Based Franchise Built on Biblical Principles
The Office Pride concept began as an independent research project. Our founder and CEO Todd Hopkins, was working on his MBA at Butler University in Indianapolis. Todd visited some of the best commercial cleaning contractors in the Midwest and asked them if they had to start all over again, what they would do differently to create a company that would excel in customer service. He took their advice and came up with the concept of a faith-based commercial cleaning business. Through his research, Todd saw a huge opportunity to build a profitable commercial cleaning franchise within a very fragmented industry.
So in 1992, Todd founded Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services with the dream of building a long-term profitable business that glorifies God while serving man. With $20,000 pulled together from savings and a little help from family and friends, Todd worked out of his home, cleaning by himself at night and selling accounts during the day. His path wasn’t always easy and he relied on God and prayer to see him through but Todd’s perseverance and business savvy paved the way for what Office Pride is today – a nationally recognized and admired commercial cleaning franchise system serving thousands of commercial customers all across America.
Franchising since 1996, today Todd is an industry leader and serves on the Building Services Contractors Association International Board of Directors. BSCAI is responsible for raising and maintaining standards of professionalism in the Facilities Services Industry. Todd is one of the most sought-after speakers in the building service contracting industry. He has also authored several best-selling books based on Biblical business principles including Five Wisdoms for Entrepreneur Survival, The Carrot Chaser and The Janitor.
