BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - July 23, 2015 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Two Maids & A Mop, a residential cleaning company that provides franchise opportunities throughout the country, is pleased to announce it is opening eight new franchise locations across five states in the next six months. Locations include Jacksonville and Tallahassee, Fla.; Suwanee and Alpharetta, Ga.; Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas; Murfreesboro, Tenn., and Tuscaloosa, Ala., making Two Maids & A Mop's growth 328 percent this year. The company also recently converted its affiliate-owned location in Montgomery, Ala., to a franchised unit.
Headquartered in Birmingham, Ala., Two Maids & A Mop has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the nation's fastest growing cleaning companies and cleaned more than 500,000 homes since opening in 2003. With an aggressive franchising strategy in place, the company currently serves 15 markets throughout seven states and has plans to open 100 more locations in the next five years. Tallahassee and Jacksonville open this month and will represent its 16th and 17th locations. Tuscaloosa and Alpharetta are set to open in August.
"Our company has come a long way from its humble roots of two employees and only a handful of customers, and we are extremely excited to have these new locations opening soon across the country," said Ron Holt, CEO and Founder of Two Maids & A Mop. "It's encouraging that so many people recognize that our concept provides both a proven operational system along with unique differentiators that are unmatched within the home cleaning industry."
With two different franchisee options available, a potential investor can choose to participate in the "owner-operator" model or the "absentee ownership" method. The "owner-operator" model involves an investor who has the money needed and a passion to run the business, whereas the "absentee ownership" method simply requires the investment while Two Maids & A Mop works to provide a qualified "sweat equity" partner who commits to managing the daily operations to manage the franchise efficiently.
"We truly have a franchise option for everyone," said David Luke, Chief Operating Officer of Two Maids & A Mop. "Our owner-operators are typically comprised of corporate executives who have finally decided to take the plunge into entrepreneurship while many of our absentee owners don't even live in the same state of their franchise location. We're very comfortable with both types of franchise ownership; primarily because we have been operating affiliate-owned locations across multiple states for the past twelve years. This is a time-tested business model and the early interest in our franchise opportunity has been overwhelming."
Two Maids & A Mop operations have experienced exponential growth by utilizing the company's extremely innovative sales process. This unique marketing strategy has proven to generate an average of 2,000 qualified leads for each location. The massive amount of leads has allowed many of the current franchise partners to quickly control a significant amount of their local market share. Franchise partners of the Two Maids & A Mop brand receive full access to this industry-changing sales and marketing process.
"There has always been a strong demand for our services by consumers. While most of our industry still relies on antiquated methods to attract new customers, we prefer to utilize technology to both attract and qualify potential customers. The strategy not only provides a large number of qualified leads but also provides an extremely high return on investment," said Holt.
Two Maids & A Mop earned a spot on Inc. Magazine's 2014 list of 5000 fastest growing private companies in America for the second consecutive year, ranking No. 1,191 on the list, and making them the second fastest growing cleaning company in America, the eighth fastest growing company in Birmingham and 18th in the state of Alabama.
