The Maids is not the kind of business where you buy a franchise and work by yourself. Teamwork is what drives the company. Entrepreneurs are in the franchise business rather than in the cleaning business. They need not think of owning The Maids franchise as of a job but more as of a career. Nearly 70% of all franchisees own more than one unit.


The teamwork concept crawls up to the top leaders of the company. A few men and one woman work together in a team to build and manage The Maids. The company was found in 1979 by Daniel Bishop who still occupies the chairman position. The Maids provides residential cleaning services with environment-safe cleaning products. The company has been franchising since 1980 and has built an efficient business model and support programs to educate and support franchisees.


Entrepreneurs start with a seven-week online introductory training; continue with nine days of administrative training followed by four days of at-site employee training once the office has opened. The Maids provides sales and management, as well as customer service and operational software trainings. Thorough guidebooks and online documentation are available for further reference.


The Maids management organizes weekly webinars and sends newsletters with business information and important updates. Franchisees meet each other on regional meetings and national conventions to support and exchange know-hows.


The Maids has more than 1,000 offices in the USA and Canada. Private businesses do not have the same stability to stay in the business as The Maids has. Together, franchises create a strong brand and a network of loyal clients. The company encourages conversion through waiving up to 75% of the franchise fee for a year.


The Maids is a residential cleaning company. It was found in 1979 and started franchising a year later.  Today, there are 1,000 locations in the USA and Canada. It is hard to retain a private business in the cleaning industry and joining a renowned brand like The Maids is the best decision for entrepreneurs.
