CEO of Multi-Million-Dollar Franchise Shares Secret to Success in CNBC Documentary About Warren Buffett
Successful Two Maids & a Mop CEO Credits Buffett’s Teachings for Thriving Business
May 15, 2018 // Franchising.com // BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - CEO Ron Holt, head of Birmingham-based Two Maids & A Mop™, one of the nation’s fastest-growing residential cleaning companies, with more than 60 franchises, shared his unique business journey in the CNBC documentary entitled “Warren Buffett: Investor. Teacher. Icon.” In the one-hour broadcast that premiered May 4, Holt credits billionaire Warren Buffet for his professional and personal success as the head of a multi-million-dollar home cleaning service empire.
In an intimate interview with CNBC’s Becky Quick, Holt talks about his home life and his business — all inspired by Buffett’s take on aggressive saving and planning. Holt also publicly thanks Buffett for his inspirational teachings in the CNBC program.
“Everything that I’ve learned from him, and everything that I put forth in my business and personal life is enough reward for me,” Holt told CNBC’s Quick. “It was all made possible thanks to one successful man’s willingness to share his knowledge with others.”
Holt says Buffett’s biography, “The Making of the American Capitalist,” marked the first day of the rest of his life. He purchased the book on a whim in 1998 to learn more about the stock market. He learned the importance of frugality and preparing for competition, which laid the foundation of his business.
Today, Two Maids & A Mop is thriving. Holt has set a goal to open 20 to 25 new franchise locations a year over the next five years. He has the same vision now as he did when he opened his first store. Holt says it is a proven model that has worked, time after time.
Buffett, one of the wealthiest men in the United States, is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. The multinational conglomerate is the parent company of household names such as GEICO, Heinz and Dairy Queen.
