“It has been an incredible year for Coverall as we have met and exceeded our goals for system-wide growth,” said Rick Ascolese, Coverall President and CEO. “Over the last 30 years, Coverall has established itself as one of the leading brands in the franchised commercial cleaning industry. In 2016, we will continue our focus on supporting our franchisees and helping them develop their businesses through our local Support Centers. Our whole system is built around a passion for helping entrepreneurs start their own businesses through a Coverall® franchise.”
Several of Coverall’s 35 Support Centers relocated to new facilities to better accommodate and position themselves conveniently for franchisees, including locations in Long Island, N.Y., Omaha, Neb., Ft. Myers, Fla., Metairie, La. and Dayton, Ohio. In addition, new Coverall Master Franchisee-owned Support Centers opened in Chattanooga, Tenn. and Mobile, Ala., continuing brand expansion into new markets. Coverall North America, Inc. also increased its employee ranks to help support Coverall franchisees in its markets and continues to offer career opportunities in sales, fieldoperations and administration.
Coverall North America, Inc. attributed much of its success this year to outstanding Franchised Business Owners who make the decision to independently own and operate a franchised business and are ambassadors for the Coverall® brand.
Jeremiah Bates, owner of Emerald Cleaning Service LLC in the Pittsburgh area, Benit Gotah and Ablavi Anoumou, owners of Adi-Got Brothers Services LLC in the Charlotte area, and Hebert Ospina, owner of Hebert Enterprises Corp. in the South Florida area, have all been named Franchised Business Owners of the Year.
“These outstanding Franchised Businesses of the Year demonstrate exceptional service delivery and great relationships with their customers,” said Ascolese. “We are extremely proud of their achievements and honored that they chose to be part of the Coverall®System.”
Coverall is a leader in the franchising industry. Guided by a strong value system based on Integrity, Mutual Respect, Honesty, Trust and Team, Coverall has built a servant-leadership system with its Franchised Businesses as top priority. Each year the largest Coverall Franchised Business of the Year receives national recognition together with similarly selected franchisees of the year in other systems at the International Franchise Association’s Franchise Action Network Annual Meeting in Washington D.C.
