Meet Mark Charles, Area Developer for North Florida and South Alabama
Mark Charles, Office Pride’s area developer for North Florida and South Alabama, built one of the company’s largest franchises and was one of Office Pride’s first area developers.
With 13 years’ previous experience in the janitorial industry, Mark and his wife, Sonya, opened Office Pride of Pensacola in 2003. Mark quickly achieved success, with Office Pride of Pensacola becoming one of the largest franchises in the Office Pride system. Mark and Sonya opened a second location in Mobile, Alabama.
As an area developer, Mark enjoys working with veterans, millennials, entrepreneurs and professionals seeking to make a change. “I believe Office Pride is a great opportunity and that our franchise can help people achieve their dreams,” Mark says. “Office Pride has excellent margins, a strong franchise system and good people.”
Mark says Office Pride’s differentiator is the way they do business. Office Pride offers group purchasing and large discounts on state-of-the-art cleaning equipment, operational support, customer billing and collection, marketing materials and proven operational systems. He believes that vision groups, regional growth conferences and the annual retreat keep owners collaborative.
Mark says, “Ultimately, our values really do make us different. Our goal is to help you achieve your goals while working within a culture committed to our core values.”
