Why Franchise Opportunities With Office Pride Are Different From Those of Our Competitors
The first question is how Office Pride differs from most other commercial cleaning franchises. When you compare the Office Pride franchise model to other commercial cleaning franchise opportunities, some differences rapidly emerge.
Many commercial cleaning franchises sell franchises to individuals who end up doing much of the cleaning themselves. They sell or award them accounts and require franchisees to pay royalties on them. Accounts can be taken away as the franchisor sees fit. In some cases, the franchisor may underbid the account to get the business, which guarantees them the same royalty fees but undercuts the franchisee’s profit potential.
If your goal is to grow a business with equity, then Office Pride may be your choice among commercial cleaning franchise opportunities. We teach you how to sell commercial cleaning services. It is certainly true that some people who invest in franchise opportunities would rather focus on other parts of the business rather than sales, but once trained our franchisees find selling our brand, our services, and our philosophy of achieving total customer satisfaction make selling Office Pride easy and fun. The important thing is that Office Pride is there to support our franchise owners. When you join our family, we provide sales training and go with you on your first calls so you’re confident enough to do it on your own. We recognize that our success depends on how successful you are.
The second question is how Office Pride differs from most other commercial cleaning businesses from the customer’s perspective. Many cleaning customers are very unhappy with their current cleaning company. In fact, according to the Building Services Contractors Association International, about one third (33 percent) switch their commercial cleaning provider each year.
Customer unhappiness is standard stuff in the commercial cleaning industry. And whether cleaners are mom-and-pop organizations or established brands, it’s difficult to know who you can trust to do an excellent job consistently. Job performance is all over the map. Some do well, many don’t. and the problem is, customers just don’t know who to trust. Some don’t even know what poor performance they are paying for.
Trust is not an issue with Office Pride. Because of our systems, training, reputation, and commitment to customer service, customers know we’re a brand they can always trust. We treat our franchisees with respect, they treat their employees with respect, and the employees treat our customers with respect. By the way, our annual customer retention rates run around 90 percent.
