Last week, we published our Cleaning Franchise Report. It is a hugely in-depth examination of the industry and pointed to the huge growth potential of the sector. Today we have more proof that cleaning franchises are a smart investment.
While reading a story in Crain's Detroit today, I came upon this fascinating fact. According to Entrepreneur magazine, commercial cleaning franchises make up the fastest-growing business sector in franchising. Given the remarkable diversity and popularity of franchising, this is a pretty amazing development. The story also says that commercial cleaning franchises are among the most affordable start-ups in franchising.
And if you're looking for a tip in choosing a cleaning franchise, this wisdom from Ed King, a business instructor at the Troy Chamber of Commerce, might help.
"I would take a look at growth, seeing if the service is growing dramatically, filling a niche someplace, kicking competitors' (butts) in terms of pricing" and other matters, he said.
Of course, you'll find America's best cleaning franchises - either in the commercial sector or beyond - with Franchise Direct. But you knew that already!
