Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services Franchisee Reviews
Office Pride attracts those with entrepreneurial spirits who share our beliefs on being honest, respectful, and always doing the right thing. Sharing core values is one of the reasons why our franchisees are so happy and successful. In fact, Office Pride has one of the highest franchisee owner satisfaction rates according to Franchise Business Review, an independent source of franchise research. Check out some of the testimonials below.
We are both Retired Air Force. One thing that I really liked about Office Pride was its commitment to their core values. When we were in the Air Force, we also had core values: integrity first, service before self, excellence in all we do. I had a commander who also added two more: mission first, and the mission is the people. His point was that if you took care of your people, they would take care of the mission. I still wholeheartedly believe that! Office Pride has very similar values about integrity and customer service and doing what is right and what is best. It’s not about the almighty dollar, it’s about doing what’s right for every party involved, not just the owners or bending over backwards for the customer at the expense of the employee. I felt Office Pride set up that scenario best with their faith-based principles.

We started a commercial cleaning company with the urging of Scott’s co-worker, in 2003 to get Carmen out of a dead-end job. After a year as an independent company, a ministry friend of Scott’s encouraged us to check out Office Pride. We were able to convert our business and acquire an Office Pride franchise in 2004. Timing is everything and everything in His time! For Office Pride franchisees the sky’s the limit… thanks to the support, the culture, the training and the fellowship we have been blessed with through Todd Hopkins, his corporate staff and our fellow franchisees!

I graduated from Regent University with a BS in Business after spending 22 years and retiring as a Navy Senior Chief. I actually started my Office Pride franchise while I was studying for my bachelor’s degree. I love the impact I can have on the people that work with me. Being a Christian, this is a great ministry. When potential clients go on our website, they see it’s professionally designed. They see the Scripture, and they see our core values. It gives them a sense of security. They know someone from Office Pride will take care of their building, they know our employees won’t steal from them and they know we’ll resolve issues quickly. Those are some of the things I use as a selling point. There’s a reason why we’re growing so fast. We do things above and beyond what a lot of other companies would do.

We started our own cleaning company in 2001 and in 2008 joined Office Pride. Todd Hopkins had been advising us long before we became a franchisee and as he helped us, we saw the value in a franchise system that could help us in all facets of our business. The Office Pride culture is one of integrity, honesty and hard work while being family oriented and Christ centered.

I was a regional sales manager for a Fortune 200 industrial manufacturer overseeing 14 district sales managers, where I managed about $120 million in annual revenue. I chose Office Pride because of the power of the brand, the talent of the senior management and the high level of respect I have for all the individuals who are a part of the corporation.

The thing that’s good about Office Pride is Todd is very careful not to over-saturate an area. Whenever we have new franchisees, we encourage them to Google ‘Office Pride’ for complaints and lawsuits. You just don’t see anything. With a lot of others, you do. That tends to happen because of oversold expectations, which leads to unhappy franchisees… You can put a lot of franchisees out there, but if the majority of them are failing, it doesn’t do any good.

In the corporate world today, it’s just scary. The moral character is getting rough. We thought…we want to honor God in this business. We totally gave it up to Him and will do whatever we can do to serve Him. I think we really back the integrity. We practice what we preach, and we truly want to go the extra mile and please our customers.

During the recession, I grew more than I ever have. I’m primarily serving that small- to medium-sized business. If you think about it, the small business owner went through the recession and had a tough time. Many closed their doors, had to let folks go, and had to downsize operations. What I think happened is they looked at cutting things and realized, ‘I need to reward myself in one place.’ So they didn’t cut us. Dust and dirt did not recede in the recession nor did the need for businesses to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment for their employees and customers.

I felt Office Pride was more focused on the success of their franchisees rather than just selling franchises… That was a big selling point for me.
