Factors to consider when selecting a cleaning business

There are several factors to consider when choosing a commercial cleaning business location.

Market Territory Availability Factors to Consider

A scalable business model and nonexclusive market areas allow franchisees to easily expand their investment

Our cleaning franchise offers investors a turnkey business opportunity that has nonexclusive market areas, which allows franchise owners to grow their investment as much as they want.

Many differentiators set Office Pride apart from the competition, but these nonexclusive market areas allow more than one franchise to operate in an area, encouraging overlap and growth.

“The commercial cleaning industry is so large that there is really no need for exclusive territories,” says Gerry Henley, Executive Vice President. “The opportunity for franchisees to collaborate and act almost like regional franchisees is beneficial to owners. We sometimes have three, four, five even 10 franchises in a given market area.

“It’s a nice feature because the more that we have, the more people can see the pride in our brand. This also encourages franchisees to work together and be more regional in concept. For example, one franchise might have an account with a company’s regional headquarters. If a job at one of those company locations is too far away for them to handle, they can easily refer it to another owner in their shared area.”

Overhead Costs

Commercial cleaning business opportunities are attractive for entrepreneurs — there’s little overhead, the earnings potential is great and there are billions of square feet of office space in the U.S. that need to be cleaned. That’s why the potential for success with Office Pride is real — and vast.

Office Pride also succeeds because commercial cleaning provides a predictable income. The commercial cleaning industry will be in demand regardless of economic conditions. Even during downturns, offices and businesses need to be cleaned. Business owners, for the sake of their employees and customers, have to maintain a certain level of cleanliness. They want a trusted vendor who will treat them ethically and fairly, and that’s why they gravitate to us.


A business opportunity that is recession-resistant and allows investors to grow in any geographic direction is a win-win.

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.
