There isn’t a typical Maid Brigade owner, our community is diverse with men and women from a variety of careers; from teachers to engineers, to former corporate executives. The wide range of backgrounds, personalities and experiences within our system cultivate a unique place for sharing, learning, and camaraderie.
And we are the only cleaning service company (franchise or not) that is Green Clean Certified®!
What we love most about Maid Brigade is the freedom and flexibility granted by corporate that empowers us to provide our market the best services possible. Corporate’s ability to listen with an open mind, consider the ever changing landscape, and demand innovation, demonstrates their aptitude and willingness to explore and discover for continuous improvement, for continuous partnership.
People often ask me why I chose Maid Brigade as a business opportunity. Prior to Maid Brigade I worked as a Mechanical Engineer and had several other small businesses. I was looking for an opportunity and a system with structure that would allow me to grow a business to a larger volume than my previous businesses. Maid Brigade training, standard operating procedures and support have provided me with the tools to grow my business to a multi-million dollar level. During the early years in the business the initial training and support were critical to my success. Maid Brigade provides tools that maximize franchisees profitability and operating efficiency.
The longer we’ve been franchisees, the more we’ve come to appreciate the Maid Brigade franchise system. And that’s saying something, since we started in 1989. From the President to the latest hire, we find the Home Office not only eager to help, but able to help. Our fellow franchisees share insights and best practices and provide a great sense of community. Conventions and regional meetings give us face time with others who share our same challenges, hopes, and humor. Our FAC (Franchisee Advocacy Committee), PIP (Partners in Profitability), and Ad Council all contribute to a healthy national franchise and to strong local businesses. Most of the best vendors we count on have been introduced through the franchisor. In short, we’ve had a long, profitable relationship with Maid Brigade and see a bright future ahead as well.
I am approaching my 20 year anniversary as a franchisee. I know that the growth I have achieved would not have been possible without the support provided by Maid Brigade. Support staff, Marketing staff, on-line and in person workshops, conventions, business performance analysis and phone support, all have a direct and significant impact on my success. Maid Brigade’s corporate culture is 100% focused on franchisee’s ability to grow and be profitable. My decision to become a franchisee was a significant milestone, and definitely the right one.
My wife and I purchased a Maid Brigade franchise in August of 2015. We looked at other cleaning franchises but found Maid Brigade to be the best fit for us. The support we’ve received from the home office and other franchisees has exceeded our expectations. Whether it be marketing, operations, tech support or just general business questions, Maid Brigade has been so helpful. I like to compare it to a large family.
