ANN ARBOR, Mich. - May 05, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Molly Maid hopes to sweep into new Alabama markets. To fulfill demand for its services, the nation’s leading house cleaning company announces it is currently seeking franchisees to open up to five locations throughout the state.
“We receive nearly 10,000 online searches for our services every month in Alabama,” said Molly Maid President Meg Roberts. “There are literally thousands of customers waiting for Molly Maid to clean their homes. For potential franchisees, that translates into a very healthy built-in customer base.”
Molly Maid currently has one Alabama location in Phenix City. Owned by Shawn and Randy Redmon, Molly Maid of Columbus, Phenix City & Auburn has experienced double-digit sales growth every year since opening in 2011.
Aiming to build off the success of the existing location – and capitalize on interest from would-be customers – Molly Maid is targeting Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile for franchise expansion.
For entrepreneurs interested in owning a cleaning franchise, the industry has a bright outlook. Molly Maid saw system-wide consumer sales increase 5.1 percent last year. Overall, residential cleaning is a $2.8 billion industry and is poised for renewed growth as a result of increased disposable income and reduced unemployment, according to research firm IBISWorld.
Molly Maid has received numerous awards for entrepreneurship, software innovation and humanitarian support. The investment to open a Molly Maid franchise is $150,000 to $175,000. Molly Maid is a member of the Service Brands International family of home-services franchises that also includes Mr. Handyman and ProTect Painters.
