Stratus Building Solutions Debuts Master Franchise Territory in Mississauga, Ontario
Local Business Owners, Greg and Anna Pridmore, Bring Nation’s Leading Green Commercial Cleaning and Janitorial Franchise to Mississauga Region
TORONTO (PRWEB) November 18, 2019 - Stratus Building Solutions, the nation's leading green commercial cleaning and janitorial services franchise, has announced that the husband-and-wife entrepreneurial team of Greg Pridmore and Anna Pridmore have opened the newest Master Franchise location in Mississauga, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto. This is an important development for the area because the demand for green cleaning janitorial services has escalated in recent years with local businesses, schools, daycares, religious centers, gyms and others seeking healthier alternatives to cleaning their workspaces. It’s also an important development for Stratus Building Solutions, which has been growing in size and stature throughout North America since its founding in 2006.
Before becoming a master franchisor for Stratus Building Solutions, Greg did a bit of everything. He was a bartender and waited tables throughout college, where he studied business. After that, he worked in sales, for a variety of companies across multiple industries, including web conferencing and transportation and logistics.
Meanwhile, Anna, too, followed a similar path, studying elementary education as an undergraduate, and then business administration and management as a graduate student. She then launched into a robust career in sales at a company in Kherson, Ukraine, the country where she was born and raised. She moved to Canada in 2006 where she worked as a senior sales design consultant for five years. She then transitioned to working in sales for Bell Canada.
Though Greg and Anna both enjoyed their corporate careers, they were ready for an entrepreneurial change.
“I’ve been looking at franchises for years,” Greg says. “Anna and I have spent a lot of time at franchising shows. We’d go to two or three a year, whether we had the money to buy one or not.”
It was at one of those franchising shows when Greg and Anna encountered several executives with Stratus Building Solutions. The Pridmores hit it off with the Stratus corporate team, and the more they learned about Stratus, the more they liked. They ultimately decided that rather than become a unit franchise owner, they would become a master franchise and sell franchises throughout Mississauga and several other municipalities in the area.
Greg says that he’ll be functioning as the CEO of Stratus Building Solutions of Mississauga, handling duties such as financing and supplier relationships, and Anna, the COO, will work with the franchise owners.
“We are thrilled that the Pridmores have joined the Stratus team as master franchisees,” says Afshin Cangarlu, Stratus Building Solutions’ CEO. “We’re particularly glad to have them representing Stratus in Mississauga. It’s a beautiful city, in a region that’s growing, and the Pridmores know the area very well. I have no doubt that they will be an excellent addition to our team.”
Based in Los Angeles, Stratus Building Solutions offers regional Master Franchise opportunities that enable owners to operate as local sales and support centers. Master franchisees across the U.S. and Canada help others uncover the potential of the Stratus Building Solutions Unit Franchise opportunity and choose the specific model/investment that fits their lifestyle/financial goals.
