Office Pride’s values make it a great value proposition
A messy desk is a sign of a creative mind, but a dirty office is a whole different matter. Productivity takes a nosedive when trash cans are full, floors are unmopped and windows are smudged. A clean place of business, whether it’s an office, a retail space, a healthcare facility or a warehouse, is necessary for a productive business.
So when people hire a commercial cleaning company, they want someone they can trust and rely on. By the same token, entrepreneurs looking for a commercial cleaning franchise are seeking the same qualities – they want a franchisor they can trust to be true to its word, one they can rely on to provide the systems and support they need to succeed. The principles we’ve instilled in our business practices in the last two decades really stand out in the commercial cleaning industry, and they make Office Pride a unique proposition. Here are five reasons we think Office Pride stands out:
Christian principles. Everyone, from our top-paying client to our part-time cleaning crew, is afforded the same respect. Honesty is our hallmark. We work hard and take pride in everything we do. Above all, we always operate with integrity. Office Pride was created as a way to allow people to build profitable businesses while giving all the glory to God.
Low cost. Franchising is a wonderful opportunity, and it doesn’t have to be exhorbitantly expensive. While some franchises require hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of dollars to get started, Office Pride offers an extremely low entry point. Your initial investment will range from $14,900 to $59,000. In exchange, Office Pride will provide you with everything you need to run your own cleaning franchise, from training and support to vendor relationships. Part of the appeal of franchising is that you’re buying a proven system; the road to success has already been paved for you, and now all you have to do is follow it. Office Pride has smoothed out all the bumps that come along with owning your own business.
Peer groups. We assign franchisees to a peer group of a half-dozen or so owners who get together online once a month to offer each other support.The groups are moderated by someone from Office Pride headquarters. They talk about challenges or best practices; they offer advice and support; and they really get each other, because they’re all out there doing the same thing. Peer groups establish a high level of trust and help franchisees perform better. “It’s about mastery,” says franchising expert Joe Mathews of Franchise Performance Group. “A peer group breaks down that mastery into smaller pieces. When a member of peer group has a success, a peer’s advice may seem more relevant. They are an essential part of any high-performing franchise.”
Works in any market. Some franchises have very specific criteria that determine where they will – and won’t – let owners operate. One of the beautiful things about the Office Pride business model is that it works virtually anywhere. Office Pride owners can work out of their own homes, so finding the right real estate is never an issue. And in any town with commercial ventures, be they doctor’s offices, day care centers or warehouses, there are going to be customers. No matter where they’re located or what the economy looks like, workspaces have to be cleaned – and that equals opportunity for Office Pride franchisees.
Recession-resistant. The website FranchiseWorks.com recently published an article about five great reasons to own a cleaning franchise. One of the most fascinating nuggets: “The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that a professional cleaning specialist will be the fastest growing occupation in the next ten years, reaffirming the potential expansion of the industry and related professions.” Indeed, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates a 12.1% growth in jobs in the professional cleaning industry, which is already a $78 billion a year industry.
Our commitment to our Christian principles and our 20-plus years of business savvy have helped us build a profitable franchise company with more than 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.
