Office Pride’s Unique Christian Faith-Based Franchise Business Culture
Our Christian faith-based culture at Office Pride encourages our franchisees to be all God created them to be in the marketplace. Office Pride’s foundation verse is: “commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed” (Proverbs 16:3),
We are a nationwide, faith-based, franchise that exists to equip people to build a profitable business that honors God.
To ensure that the culture and purpose of our business always aligns with our values, Todd Hopkins, our founder and CEO and other team members created a set of Core Values to follow as part of our faith based culture. They are:
• Honor God
• Always do what is right
• Increase brand value
• Demonstrate honesty, integrity, and a hard work ethic
• Total customer satisfaction
• Go the extra mile
• Persevere with a servant’s attitude
• Accountability to commitments
These Core Values help us to follow our Mission Statement, which is:
Honor and glorify God by building mutually beneficial relationships with customers, employees, vendors, and franchisees and fulfilling our promise of providing top quality janitorial services through men and women committed to honesty, integrity, and hard work.
To begin with, let’s dispel a common myth: There’s no such thing as a Christian franchise or business. People are Christians; businesses are just businesses. At Office Pride, we are a faith-based business, and as such we operate under certain principles.
For us, Christian franchises mean we believe the Bible has a lot to say about running a business and we follow the Bible’s teachings on how business should be conducted.
At Office Pride, we believe in teaching our franchisees how to fish, metaphorically, rather than just giving them a fish, in keeping with the tenets set forth by the Bible. We know by treating everyone fairly and providing our franchisees with the tools to be successful it will translate into success for everyone.
In every business, faith-based Christian franchises or otherwise, there will be challenges and difficulties. Financial struggles can occur. Personnel matters will crop up that have to be dealt with. Customers come and go, slow periods happen, sometimes employees have to be replaced. We live in the real world, and true believers understand that things aren’t always rosy. But that’s the beauty of having faith to lean on. We have a guidebook that tells us how to act with honesty and integrity in every situation – the Bible. And we keep putting one foot in front of the other during those challenging times, trusting that God has a plan for us and will show us the way.
Maybe you’re wondering to yourself: How do Christian franchises work in an increasingly globalized world? The short answer is, quite well. At its core, Christianity stands for mutual respect, opportunity, honesty, and forgiveness. These turn out to be traits that are well-suited for business in general, and Office Pride is concrete proof of this. Our core values have enabled us to create a network of Christian franchisees that is made up of hardworking, respectful individuals who are experts in customer satisfaction.
