Alabama Franchisees’ Values Drew Them to Office Pride

Sherry Adcock and co-owner Greg Steele admire national cleaning franchise’s mission and core principles 

Sherry Adcock’s background could not have been a better fit for Office Pride, the national cleaning franchise with more than 25 years of experience in the industry.

First, she cemented her sales strategies when she worked at Payless Shoes. For six years she worked at the Monte Sano State Park in Huntsville, Alabama, as lead housekeeper for the cabins. Adcock then leveraged that experience to learn the ropes of franchising at the Office Pride in Huntsville before deciding to launch her own cleaning franchise location serving the Albertville area.

“I have many years of experience in the janitorial industry and several in retail,” Adcock says. “I know how to sell and I know how to clean.” That enthusiasm has served her well in her new role as co-owner of a cleaning franchise business. She co-owns the franchise location, which launched in August 2016, with Greg Steele. She reports that Steele has knowledge of computers which he puts to good use in the back office.

Office Pride’s core values of honesty and accountability drew Adcock to the cleaning franchise. “I believe in what they stand for and what they teach – they don’t just teach the business. They live it. I believe in always going the extra mile, always doing what’s right and delivering good quality for a good price,” Adcock says.

Adcock was attracted to Office Pride’s faith-based approach to business. “I’m more into spirituality. I see the beauty and good in everything,” she says. “Office Pride has a family feeling and vibes from the team feeds the energy.”

Adcock and Steele run daily operations. Adock’s youngest son and his oldest daughter also help with cleaning and technology. “We are looking to build something to leave our children,” Adcock says. Office Pride’s FasTrack to Profit (FasTrack), which maps out key financial milestones and a plan to get there as quickly and efficiently as possible, will help her and Steele get there.
