How Non-Exclusive Market Areas Create Amazing Opportunities
On May 7th 2019
Most franchise systems require owners to expand within a restricted geographic area. The Office Pride commercial cleaning franchise opportunity differs, however, giving franchise owners freedom to grow their investment as much as they want to thanks to nonexclusive market areas.
These unrestrictive zones are just one more way Office Pride stands out from the competition. Because more than one Office Pride franchisee can operate within the same market area, owners can (and do) often refer business to one another, or partner up for a major client. In other words, franchisees can grow and scale their business in any direction without limits in a thriving industry where there are over 70 billion square feet of commercial floor space in the U.S. alone.
Office Pride provides scalable growth
“That’s why Office Pride doesn’t have exclusive territories — there’s no need,” says Gerry Henley, Executive Vice President. “It’s not unusual for us to have three, four, five, even 10 franchises in a given market area. There’s plenty of business to go around, and in those markets they can work together and create a more regional presence. One franchisee might get a regionally-based account, and then they partner with other franchisees in the market to help serve that client.”
What’s more, because franchise owners control their own growth, they can add new customers on their own timetable. They build a roster of commercial clients which tend to be small- to medium-size companies with predictable needs, which allows the creation of a more stable foundation of accounts and cash flow, which provides the business growth that makes it easier to acquire and serve larger accounts.
Loyal customers provide growth opportunities
Franchises also boost revenues by adding on services for existing clients. That’s possible because those tend to be loyal customers, making it easier to build personal relationships with and offer high-profit margins. This allows Office Pride to be seen not just as a vendor, but a trusted business partner.
Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services is a faith-based franchise system that, for more than 27 years, has offered entrepreneurs a proven business system, a comprehensive support network and a potentially lucrative financial opportunity — plus the ability to live their faith through their own business and make a difference in their communities.
