Why Our Franchise?
We at You've Got Maids are excited about the opportunity available in our industry. In this video, maid turned franchisee support staff member Joseph Berger describes six reasons why house cleaning is a great field for the thoughtful entrepreneur.
A Dynamic Business Opportunity
No accounts receivable.
Steady, dependable income.
Exclusive, protected territory.
1-on-1 support from the founders.

Cutting edge software for easy operations.
Repeat clients provide predictable revenue and more.
House cleaning isn't exactly a newfound idea. There have been maids as long as there have been houses, and this isn't going away anytime soon. That being said, professional franchise house cleaning services are bringing this age-old service into the modern era.
The increasing prevalence of dual-income households is a huge opportunity for us to come in and provide a valuable service to these families. Their home still needs cleaning and considering the value of their house and the possessions therein, hiring anyone other than a professional who is insured, trained, and background checked is not acceptable. Our franchise offers to manage a well-trained team of maids who have passed background checks prior to employment all the while offering elite customer service.
Low Start-Up Cost
Compared to a restaurant or gym, starting a house cleaning service is relatively economical. This fact served as an inspiration to Founders Frank & Cynthia Berger as it provided an avenue for them to pursue their mission; to help burgeoning entrepreneurs create businesses for themselves and their families. In their report on the janitorial industry, market researcher IBIS World3 cites "being part of a franchise chain" as one the top three success factors. With some cleaning services having customer turnover as high as 55% or more4, learning from a franchise the operational and marketing systems for success is crucial to building a business in this expanding industry.
Low Ongoing Cost
Cleaning supplies aren't all that expensive, and our practice of maintaining vendors without markup helps our franchisees keep costs as low as possible. Furthermore, our fair labor practices will keep your largest ongoing cost, labor, in the right ballpark. Again, this is a value to joining a franchise. Without the training and consulting, these costs could get out of hand, dampening your ability to market and expand.
There's money in doing what others won't. When our best practices are being followed, every job should be profitable in and of itself. Furthermore, accounts receivable is not a part of our standard operating procedure. Debt collection just isn't our thing.
Client by client, we can build a business. Maidmobile by maidmobile, we can serve that business. There's nothing stopping you once you get started! Not only that, we don't charge franchise fees (the flat part of the initial costs of joining our franchise) on adding additional territories.
You've Got MAIDS® provides Franchise Partners with an unbeatable, repeatable system to attract and retain clients. It starts with our commitment to training. We are the only maid service franchise to enroll 100% of our maids in Maid University, our proprietary training program. New employees join cleaning teams quickly, while consistent, high-quality service is ensured. In addition, Maid University has a curriculum for managers and Franchise Partners.
Our Franchise Partners don't clean, they are business owners who inspire and lead maid teams. With You've Got MAIDS® you can build a great business and achieve the lifestyle you desire.
