Low Overhead

Expensive storefronts and buildouts are often associated with starting a new business. That's not the case with Maid Brigade. Our locations, including the million-dollar operations, utilize cost-effective spaces to control overhead.

Moving Billboards

To start providing service to your territory, you have the option of using your own team members' cars. As the business grows and you decide to upgrade to a fleet of vehicles, our dynamic 4-color car wraps are like moving billboards, increasing awareness for your cleaning service in the most important areas of your territory - where your customers live! Your cleaners have to get around town anyway, so why not get double-duty out of your transportation investment? Forget expensive direct mail and newspaper ads - cars are the most cost-efficient way to reach new customers offline and point them to the estimate request form on our website.

Upward Mobility

Your franchise fee is based on the number of households in your territory that qualify TODAY. Our research shows that 1 in 5 women cleaning their own homes today plan to have cleaning service in the future. With each passing week, people are buying homes, getting raises and promotions, having children and experiencing other life changes that will put them in the market for cleaning service. So, your cost to start a cleaning service will be based on current local qualified household counts, which is only a fraction of the homes you'll be serving as your cleaning service (and market) grows and matures.
