Many Americans dream of owning their own businesses, but few of them ever make that dream a reality. Hefty start-up costs, lack of expertise and the risk of financial losses are all serious concerns for the would-be entrepreneur. The good news is, they don’t have to be. In fact, owning an Office Pride commercial cleaning franchise could be the smartest investment you ever make. Backed by systems we’ve fine-tuned over two decades, our franchises are a strong investment model for those who dream of starting their own business and helping their community – no cleaning experience required.

No experience necessary

Our franchisees come to Office Pride from a variety of industries, including insurance, health care, IT and education, to name a few. Our process-based franchise model and robust training programs also make Office Pride a great fit for veterans, who get a 10% discount on franchise fees.

And while management experience is helpful in an industry known for high turnover, we support you every step of the way in finding and training the kind of stable, long-term employees who will best represent your business.

When you really get down to it, the most important thing you need to own an Office Pride franchise is a commitment to integrity. We’re a business that operated based on Biblical principles, and that means we do things a little differently. You don’t have to go to any particular church, but all of our franchisees should be willing to embrace our core principles:

● Honor God
● Always do what is right
● Increase brand value
● Demonstrate honesty, integrity and a hard work ethic
● Strive for total customer satisfaction
● Go the extra mile
● Persevere with a servant’s attitude
● Accountability to commitments

The trust created by sticking to these values gives every Office Pride owner a competitive advantage over the average commercial cleaning company. So if you’re willing to share our standards of business, we’d love to share with you the tools and strategies that can make your entrepreneurial dreams come true.

Proven systems for success

Maintaining a spotlessly clean environment is important to every business, and virtually every business prefers to hire out that service. That's why Office Pride works in any market.

Maintaining a spotlessly clean environment is important to every business, and virtually every business prefers to hire out that service. That’s why Office Pride works in any market.

Over the past 20-plus years in business, we’ve perfected a number of systems to help our franchisees be successful. For starters, we’ve developed a detailed cleaning regimen that includes a daily checklist for each job. This system is highly trainable, allowing anyone – cleaning experience or no – the ability to provide the high quality of service Office Pride is known for.

In addition to our proven cleaning methods, we provide you a comprehensive set of tools to improve every aspect of your business. This includes educational materials on sales, personnel management and operations, plus the forms, marketing materials, equipment and supplies you’ll need to get up and running.

To prove we’re dedicated to your success, we also give you the personalized, step-by-step support you need to launch and grow your business. You’ll get a week-long franchise training class to get you started, with in-person visits to continue training and help you get started when you get back to your own geography and are making your first sales calls. All of which means a shorter learning curve and a quicker route to start turning a profit.

Truth be told, helping others is central to Office Pride’s mission. We’re committed to helping our franchisees, who share our desire to help others and make a difference in the community. Our owners take pride in lifting up others, and they do this by providing good jobs at decent wages, while mentoring employees and helping them develop crucial job skills.

For those entrepreneurs who want extra support in starting a business, and who are equally willing to support others, an Office Pride franchise means the chance to get in on a growing market and brand.

Growing opportunity

Commercial cleaning is a $78 billion a year industry, named by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the fastest growing in the country. It’s also more resistant to recession than other business types, considering that even under tough economic conditions, business owners don’t clean their own offices. As long as there are dirt and dust bunnies, there will be Office Pride.

Unlike residential customers, commercial clients typically require service on a daily basis. Because of this, contracts are the norm in commercial cleaning. These contracts mean a guaranteed revenue stream – a big advantage when it comes to starting a new business.

From our values-based approach to our robust training and support, Office Pride consistently earns high marks from owners and competitors alike. For several years running, we’ve made Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list, including no. 73 in Top Home-Based Franchises (2013), no. 47 in Low-cost Franchises (2012) and no. 266 in Overall Best Franchises (2012).

We have more than 115 franchisees across the nation, and we are growing rapidly. Applicants are encouraged from anywhere in the country, and we’d specifically like to open more franchises in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Nashville, Cincinnati, Jacksonville and Tampa.
