Phoenix-based Commercial Cleaning Franchise OpenWorks Reinforces Commitment to Armed Services with Care Package Assembly

June 27, 2017 // Franchising.com // PHOENIX - In a show of support for United States troops serving overseas, OpenWorks representatives training at the company’s headquarters recently spent the day assembling care packages for the nonprofit Support Our Troops. OpenWorks, one of the nation’s leading commercial cleaning franchises, saw employees from coast to coast come together for the cause.

“With some members of the military now being deployed a year or more, away from family and friends, receiving additional support from ‘home’ makes them feel more connected,” said J. Anthony Hobson, Vice President of Corporate Operations at OpenWorks, a veteran himself. “Our team’s effort is a reminder of the sacrifices our troops make, and a way for us to show our deep appreciation.”

The finished care packages included a wide variety of items ranging from cleaning supplies to personal hygiene items, snacks to playing cards. And, a very special addition to the packages was added through a partnership - messages and drawings from local schoolchildren at Primrose School Tatum.

Continued Hobson, “Making the choice to serve in the military deserves the respect of every citizen of this great country. An opportunity to show support, however big or small, is an opportunity to say thank you for the incredible sacrifice our troops make each day.”

OpenWorks is a strong supporter of American servicemen and women, and places an emphasis on opportunities for veterans within its own ranks. As a franchise company, OpenWorks also provides a lower franchisee purchase rate for veterans, helping them find a new career outside of the armed services through a business ownership.
