December 06, 2016 // Franchising.com // WOOD DALE, Ill. - Every year, leading national commercial cleaning franchise Image One USA recognizes one of its own for being a best-in-system franchise business leader. This year, the award goes to Jose and Santiaga Rivas, Image One franchise owners serving the Aurora, Naperville and Joliet areas of Chicagoland. It’s an award that means the world to the resilient entrepreneurial couple.
“We have worked non-stop over the past four years to build our franchise business, sometimes putting in 16 hour-plus days,” Jose Rivas said. “But, it is all worth it because my wife and I have been able to grow the business exponentially and bring more than a dozen jobs to our area, all while providing customers top-notch commercial cleaning services.”
Rivas said, with a smile, that this is the first award he has won since playing soccer at the College of Du Page several decades ago. He and his wife were equally surprised and honored to receive the award from Image One.
“We were actually scheduled to work on a few of our accounts the day of the recognition -- but Image One told us we needed to come to this year’s annual franchise gathering because we were franchisees of the year. For that, we were happy to make other arrangements!” Rivas said.
The Image One Franchisee of the Year Award takes a comprehensive look at performance and leadership of the business owners in the company’s franchise system. In order to be considered for the award, franchise owners must excel in the following areas: financial (sales/revenue volume, profitability), adherence to system and operational standards, client/customer satisfaction, HR (employee training, customer service) and community involvement and service.
“We couldn’t be happier to name Jose and Santiaga our top franchise owners of 2016,” founder Tim Conn said. “They embody everything that makes our franchise owners thrive: they’re persistent and passionate about growing their business and dedicated to providing customers an experience they won’t receive anywhere else in the industry. It’s been an honor to work closely with them as they grow their Image One franchise.”
