Commercial cleaning franchise gets results with dedication to value, integrity
Office Pride commercial cleaning franchise is among the top Home-Based Franchises for 2013, according to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list, the industry’s most prestigious catalogue of the best franchise opportunities.
With its low startup costs – the franchise fee is just $29,900, and newcomers need little more than desk space inside their own homes to get started – Office Pride was ranked at No. 73 on the magazine’s Top Home-Based Franchises list. It has risen 10 spots since debuting on the listing three years ago at No. 83.
CEO and Founder Todd Hopkins attributes his success to God. Building a strong franchise is based on prayer as well as solid business sense, and knowing when to rely more on one than the other.
“Unlike our competitors, it’s never about the money,” says Todd. “We have a lot of people come to us and say, ‘Here’s my money, I want to buy my franchise.’ That means nothing to us. We have procedures, interviews and background checks to make sure our franchisees are the right fit, and it always seems to work. I think God protects.”
Office Pride was founded in 1992 when Todd was working on his MBA at Butler University in Indianapolis. He came up with the idea for a faith-based business that would glorify God and serve man at the same time. At Office Pride, we strive to treat everyone with dignity and respect, from customers to employees alike. And the golden rule is still golden with us: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Our commitment to our Christian principles and our 20-plus years of business savvy have helped us build a profitable franchise company with nearly 100 franchisees across the country. We are expanding our reach even farther across the U.S. and Canada. In the $78 billion commercial cleaning industry, there’s still plenty of room to grow.
One of the great things about the commercial cleaning industry is its resistance to recession. Even when businesses have to cut back in other areas, they continue to maintain their cleaning services. Often, new opportunities are created when larger businesses have to lay off in-house cleaning crews in favor of contract services.
Office Pride is committed to living up to the Christian principles it was founded on. We don’t require our franchisees to be Christians; we only ask that they be willing to embrace our core values.
“We’re very pleased with our Entrepreneur ranking, and we hope this helps make more people aware of the Office Pride brand,” Todd says.
