Consumers Prioritize Cleanliness, Driving Demand for In-Home Cleaning Service
Molly Maid, the leading residential cleaning service franchise with thousands of signature navy-and-pink cars on the road, announced it has signed six new franchise agreements in the first quarter of 2010.
“As more and more people turn to the professionals for cleaning help, companies like Molly Maid are growing fast,” said Kristi Mailloux, president of Molly Maid. “We’ve spent 25 years building a reputation for quality, professional cleaning services, which is why we carefully select our franchise owners to ensure that they meet our criteria, especially a passion for delivering the highest customer service. These new owners demonstrated throughout our selection process that they will represent the Molly Maid brand well in their respective markets.”
The franchise agreements include the following new owners:
• Todd Borom in Long Island, NY
• Larry and Judy Patten in Nashua, NH
• Irvin Chen in Pasadena, CA
• Ricardo Feliciani and Delia Ferreira in Westin, FL
• Mark and Sarah Buchanan in Phoenix, AZ
• Tom and Susanne Beckes in Milwaukee, WI
“We are excited to welcome all these new franchise owners to the Molly Maid family, and they are thrilled to be affiliated with our trusted brand name,” Mailloux said. “In addition to opening their own new businesses, these franchisees will be backed with top-notch training and ongoing marketing support from our home office. It’s the best of both worlds.”
To date, Molly Maid has cleaned 17 million households around the world, performing 1.4 million cleaning jobs in 2009 alone. Molly Maid franchise owners don’t actually clean homes, rather they receive training and support from the home office to recruit, train, motivate and manage employees to clean customers’ homes in the utmost professional and thorough manner. Employees are screened and properly insured. The Molly Maid franchise opportunity, ideal for entrepreneurs with a sales or management background, provides franchise owners with unlimited room for growth without working nights and weekends.
The average cost to open a Molly Maid franchise is approximately $165,000, with a franchise fee of $14,900.
