The Office Pride Story
Office Pride was founded in 1992 by Todd Hopkins, who created the Office Pride concept as an independent research project while working on his MBA at Butler University. In developing a business plan for his project, Hopkins interviewed the leaders of a number of large cleaning companies and asked what they would do differently if they were just starting the company and how they would deliver “total customer satisfaction.”
“My goal was to create a franchise business model that delivers service excellence to our customers and financial stability and opportunities for personal and professional growth for our franchise business owners. I also felt strongly about creating a culture that enables franchise owners to give back to the communities they serve and freely exercise their faith through their business.” – Todd Hopkins, Founder and President/CEO
Using his research and commitment to customer satisfaction, Hopkins started Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services, an industry leader whose spotless reputation earns rave reviews from franchisees, clients and competitors. From the start, he was determined to build a long-term profitable business that glorified God while serving the community. With just $20,000 from his personal savings and a little help from his family and friends, Hopkins worked out of his home, cleaning at night and signing up customers by day. It was not always easy but he persevered, relying on his faith and business skills.
Today, Office Pride is a nationally acclaimed commercial cleaning franchise with more than 130 franchises and thousands of happy customers. Office Pride is listed in Franchise Business Review’s Hall of Fame and is ranked among Franchise Business Review’s Top 50 franchises for its exceptional franchisee satisfaction ratings.
“One of the biggest advantages to becoming an Office Pride franchisee is you actually plug into a system of vision achievement. We teach business ownership: things like how to set goals, how to add clarity to your vision and what you have to do to achieve that vision. We love people with passion and a can-do attitude. I always say that when passion is present, sacrifices don’t feel like sacrifices, but rather like choices. And when we find people who have passion to achieve their vision, we know we have the proven system to help them get there.” – Todd Hopkins, Founder and President/CEO
