April 20, 2016 // Franchising.com // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – A testament to the continued resilience of the 100 billion dollar commercial cleaning segment, Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), a leading commercial cleaning franchise with more than 2,400 Unit Franchisees throughout the U.S. and internationally, is pleased to welcome new Master Franchise Owner Rafiq Punjani, who will open Anago of Manitoba, the brand’s second Canadian location. The new business is located at 1004 Pembina Highway in Winnipeg, and will service the entire Manitoba province.
“We’re thrilled to expand our brand further into the Canadian market,” said Adam Povlitz, President of Anago Cleaning Systems. “We know Rafiq will spearhead growth of the brand in the area and follow Anago Cleaning Systems’ fundamental philosophies as stated in the vision, mission, and values of our organization.”
A permanent resident of Canada, Punjani moved to Winnipeg in 2013. After spending over 15 years working with Fortune 500 companies, he has chosen to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams. Rafiq brings Anago to Manitoba providing low cost entrepreneurial opportunities to individuals and families with visions of becoming their own boss.
“Anago provides great opportunities for its Franchisees and treats both Franchisees and clients like family,” said Punjani. “My family has a long history of involvement with social services and community work. With Anago of Manitoba, I aim to continue that culture of helping people to achieve their passion of owning their own business.”
The new opening highlights the growth of the commercial cleaning segment, which is a top business sector in high demand. Master Franchise Owners, many of whom have sales and marketing experience or come from executive leadership positions, have the potential to create many small businesses within their community through the Unit Franchise concept. The Unit focuses his business on cleaning office buildings, retail stores, and just about any other commercial property. The Master Franchisees handle the administrative tasks, including everything from finding clients and coordinating cleaning contracts to billing and collections.
Today, the company has grown to 37 Master Franchise locations, with over 2,400 Unit Franchisees worldwide. As further verification of its success over the past year, Anago was ranked 39th on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2016 Franchise 500 list, up over 40 spots from their previous ranking. Additionally, the company was named #1 in the Janitorial Franchises category and #4 overall franchise by FranchiseRankings.com.
