How many franchises require practically no cash up front? It’s not necessarily the easiest deal to find in the world of franchise businesses out there, but if you happen to be a qualified military veteran or current business owner in the house cleaning sector, you’re in a special position.
Programs specifically designed to boost the involvement of servicemen and women in franchise business operation are popping up in all sorts of business concepts, and existing business owners may also be offered special rates when converting to franchise brands.
One such opportunity can be found within a house cleaning franchise that’s been offering home-based franchise businesses to partners for nearly 20 years. MaidPro started out in 1991 with a first location in the Beacon Hill area of Boston and has since expanded into various U.S. states as well as Canadian provinces. Growth of the brand remains steady with over 200 locations now serving residents in need of affordable and quality house cleaning services.
Creating affordable options for customers isn’t where the generosity ends—qualified military veterans benefit too. The entire MaidPro approach to making franchise business operation accessible for veterans is focused on creating affordability that vets can rely on to get started. The savings involved hang somewhere in the balance of about 15K, including a 3K initial fee discount, $100 of annual savings for the ten-year franchise agreement, and financing options for vets that drastically decrease upfront costs.
Additionally, business men and women already operating a cleaning company can also convert their existing business into a MaidPro franchise without much hassle and for discounted rates (no royalties on existing customers & no initial franchise fee).
And speaking of quality house cleaning services, the MaidPro concept initially started out of one man’s (the current CEO) disappointment with not just one but two cleaning companies that came by to clean his house. Read more about the story here under “Our Story”.
One major component of the quality services MaidPro has developed over the last nearly 25 years also touches on minimizing waste and developing environmentally sound ways to run the business—from reused cleaning items to efficient washing systems to a focus on reducing driving time and fuel use by MaidPro teams across North America.
Another added benefit that all MaidPro franchisees can be happy about and one that’s become a hallmark feature of many franchise business opportunities is the flexibility of working hours on the job, something that makes it easier to create a schedule that works for each individual.
