Todd Hopkins, the founder and CEO of Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services, has built a special kind of cleaning franchise: not only does it go above and beyond in delivering top-notch janitorial cleaning services, it is also one of the top Christian franchises.
A believer that being an entrepreneur doesn’t mean moving away from faith, Hopkins founded Office Pride 25 years ago with a core mission: Honor and glorify God by building mutually beneficial relationships with customers, employees, vendors, and franchisees and fulfilling the promise of providing top quality janitorial services through men and women committed to honesty, integrity and hard work. Hopkins started out with just $20,000 borrowed from family and friends but he was deeply devoted to his business idea and knew he could marry both his work and faith together.
Hopkins earned a degree in business administration and management from the University of Memphis and an MBA from Butler University. He has put these to good use in building a family of more than 135 franchisees who are all equally committed to the core values and operating principles of Office Pride.
Hopkins acquired his CBSE (Certified Building Services Executive) designation through the Building Service Contracting Association International (BSCAI), and currently serves on their Board of Directors. He is also the 2008 recipient of the Walter L. Cook Award, the highest honor given by the BSCAI for distinguished service to the commercial cleaning industry.
A graduate of MIT’s Birthing of Giants Executive Entrepreneurship Academy, a prestigious program for high-performing entrepreneurs, Hopkins is dedicated to delivering cleaning franchise opportunities in the $78billion commercial cleaning industry. He is also the author of four books—The Carrot Chaser, The Janitor, Five Wisdoms For Entrepreneur SurvivalandThe Upstairs Manifesto—in which he shares his advice for success with fellow entrepreneurs especially those looking for a faith-based radar to operate their businesses by.
