When Richard Fuqua was ready to channel his passion into becoming a small business owner he looked at office cleaning franchise opportunities as they are fairly recession-resistant. Christian businesses were an especially attractive proposition too as Fuqua was looking for a way to bring his faith-based values to work. He found a perfect match in Office Pride and opened a franchise in High Point, North Carolina. The business hopes to serve the High Point, Greensboro and Winston-Salem metropolitan areas.
Fuqua has been delighted by how well the extended franchise family at Office Pride has treated him and his wife, Kim, whom he describes as an enthusiastic supporter. He has been reassured that he is not going into business alone—Fuqua has been buoyed by the franchisee support network.
Driven by a commitment to giving back, Fuqua says he believes in service to the community as an extension of his belief: “to whom much is given, much is required.” He has a background in both government and private business which have taught him customer service essentials and business operations.
“My faith in God is central in all aspects of my life and I’m excited about the opportunity to own a business that follows Biblical concepts in its successful operations,” Fuqua says. Office Pride leads Christian franchises in incorporating faith-based values into their mission, something that appeals to passionate entrepreneurs like Fuqua. He is ready to take Office Pride’s commitment of delivering “above and beyond” service to the region while providing work for his employees.
