FRANKLIN, IN - (Marketwired - Feb 19, 2014) - Office Pride commercial cleaning franchise's high marks for franchisee satisfaction earned it a coveted spot on Franchise Business Review's ninth annual Top 200 Franchises list.
To compile the list, Franchise Business Review, a nationwide market research firm, surveyed 26,000 franchisees with 350 brands, asking them to rank their franchise system in dozens of areas such as leadership, operations and product development, and training and support. All of the brands on the list scored above-average marks for franchisee satisfaction.
"We look out for each other at Office Pride, and part of our corporate culture is to treat everyone with respect," said Todd Hopkins, CEO and founder of Office Pride. "Our franchisees join peer groups where they can get together online once a month to share ideas, discuss the ups and downs of the business and offer support to one another.
"Of course, we always provide support at the corporate level, but it's important for franchisees to be able to lean on each other and share best practices."
Office Pride has developed excellent systems over the years that help franchisees provide a superior service at competitive prices. That makes a big difference to franchisees who come from backgrounds outside of the cleaning industry, like John Baugus of North Georgia.
"The only experience I had was in sweeping out the houses I built," Baugus said. "Management or operations experience is helpful, but not critical because the franchise and the support system at Office Pride are so incredible. There are so many people ready, willing and able to give you support along the way. I have at least six other franchisees on my speed dial, and I call them regularly. I can ask questions related to so many things -- sales, procedure, operations etc. It makes a huge difference to have a network of people so willing to give their time. I think it's what separates Office Pride from a lot of other systems."
Office Pride's 20-plus years of commercial cleaning franchise experience and ongoing commitment to Biblical principles have helped make them a leader in the industry. Learn more at www.officepridefranchise.com.
