Stratus Building Solutions of Austin Finds Franchise Success

Franchise success is found when applying these three tips to a strong foundation.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 05, 2012 - Opening a business of any kind is daunting at first. It is this reason why many turn to franchising. Relying on a proven business model and guaranteed support is a relief for many who have never operated a business before.

Stratus Building Solutions has been rated the #1 Commercial Cleaning Franchise (Entrepreneur) and shares their experience in the franchise industry. Stratus offers each franchise owner a myriad of tools and support to excel in their business, but the #1 success factor is the person buying the franchise.

What makes a successful Stratus franchise owner on the Master level is the same trait that Stratus of Austin’s Greg Fishman and Stephen Sheriff credit to the success of their unit franchise owners: When you start out with a dedicated hard worker, everything else can be taught.

When provided the right opportunity, it’s the drive and ambition behind the individual that determines the end result. They reference one of their first unit franchise owners in Austin who came in with no experience, no industry background, and is now cleaning several large buildings – even their largest account. Another franchise owner found success in the unit system by providing high quality work. “She takes such pride in her work and wants to succeed, so she knows it’s important to do a good job,” says Sheriff.

The top three traits the Stratus of Austin office has recognized as a common theme in their top performers are attention to detail, thinking through projects and recognizing one’s limits. By adopting these qualities, success is possible in the unit franchise system, and business in general. A strong foundation present, everything else can be built upon it.
