What Prior Experience Do I Need To Start an Office Cleaning Franchise?
Many franchise businesses are looking for people with a very particular skill set – a coffee shop franchise might want someone who has worked as a barista; an auto repair franchise prefers someone with a lot of knowledge about cars; a hotel chain is probably looking for someone with a background of hotel employment.
We have developed a specific cleaning regimen over our 25 years in business and we do believe our methods are superior to the competition. Cleaning the Office Pride way is a highly trainable skill and we train our franchisees well so that they can train their managers and employees.
Even when franchisees come to us with a background in commercial cleaning – perhaps they’ve been running their own operation, or maybe they’ve worked for others and are ready to take on their own business – we retrain them to clean the proven Office Pride way.
Don’t be intimidated by the fact that you’ve never cleaned professionally, and don’t worry if cleaning isn’t really your thing. Office Pride could still be the perfect franchise for you.
However, management experience is important. At Office Pride, franchisees are trained to find, hire and motivate the best. Someone with management experience, regardless of the field, will be able to rely on his or her experiences and gut feeling when it comes to knowing the right hiring and management decisions to make.
Office Pride franchisees come from all walks of life. Our franchisee family includes people from such varied sectors as auto manufacturing, banking, medical services, insurance, IT, ministry, health care, real estate and many come straight from serving our country in the armed forces. What they had in common was a desire to own their own business and a belief in the Office Pride core values.
We want someone whose background and experience have taught them that the most important thing about running a business is to run it with honesty and integrity. If you bring your passion for service, your business acumen and the desire to succeed, we’ll teach you everything else you need to know.
