The Boardwalk Cleaning Co.® is proud to announce that we now have franchise opportunities available in 36 states. The company, which was founded in Austin, TX by Jessica Duarte and Paula Jones in 2003 was originally known as Lone Star Maids. The decision to franchise came with a necessary name change in order to become a nationwide brand. The Boardwalk Cleaning Co.® is recognized as a company that stands by the customer service standards of the 50’s when business relationships were built on trust, and everyone knew their neighbor. The Boardwalk Cleaning Co.® believes that this ethic has been lost in the chaos of everyday life.
The Boardwalk Cleaning Co.® Franchise is offered for the operation of a full service residential cleaning business. This is a service oriented business opportunity that has been developed to offer a complete solution for the homeowners that desire to have their home cleaned regularly or on an as needed basis. The Franchise opportunities are currently available in 36 states across the nation with more opportunities being added on a regular basis. The business model has been created to be franchisee friendly, and will constantly evolve based on the needs of the consumer.
Whether you dreamed as a child of being an astronaut, a doctor, lawyer or architect, I’ll bet you never dreamed of running a maid service company. If you did then WOW! You could be about to have your dream come true. If not, then let me tell you that after reading this you will perhaps find that you have discovered a new dream and you didn’t even know it until just now.
Becoming a member of The Boardwalk Cleaning Co. family is like embarking on a journey that can take you sky high. What you are reading now isn’t about the details of how to run your own Boardwalk Cleaning Co., but rather it is about knowledge, empowerment, our company and how you might fit into our family. We are about family. Whether that family is a dog named Hoochie, beautiful twin children or a supportive virtual family. We operate like a close-knit unit, each with individual functions, but none able to function well on their own. We believe that this is fundamental to our success. So keep reading. We think you’ll like what you see.
When you get right down to it, the details make the difference. This starts when we answer the phone, respond to an email or an instant message. We believe in answering the phone on the first ring, asking great questions in order to get to know the client and their home, making sure that all of the vehicles are properly stocked and that everyone is eager to get out there and clean homes just like they would their own. But wait, there’s more. The details are more than just what the customer sees. We have a top-tier training program, enthusiastic support staff, incredible support tools, out-of-this-world marketing and a core belief that if you pursue excellence, the goodness will follow.
So, if you are a multi-tasker, a person who likes to wear more than one hat, a person who believes that the details do indeed make the difference then we think you should definitely keep reading.
Have you been wondering what it would be like to be your own boss? To set flexible hours for yourself. To work towards your goals and not someone else’s. How about YOU being the one who reaps the benefits of all of your hard work? Have you thought about opening your own business but been scared by the fact that you really aren’t an expert? Have you thought “I’m great with customers but wouldn’t know the first thing about dispatching teams... I’m pretty good with a computer and I’m sure I could learn accounting software, but I’m not too sure how to manage all of the clients and the maid teams... I think I could manage a maid team, but the invoicing, customer satisfaction, details, I’m just not sure...” This is where we can help. We have already asked all of those questions and found the answers.
We have done the heavy lifting. Let us help you recognize your dream of owning your own business.
Why residential cleaning? Let’s face it, most people want a clean home to live in, but do not like cleaning. Maybe they don’t mind cleaning, but spend so much time working that they have little time to clean. There are many more two-income families than there used to be. Our commute times are longer than in any other time in history. Americans work longer hours and more weekends than ever before. With this little spare time, no one wants to spend it cleaning their toilets. They would rather be watching a ballgame, playing with their kids, going for a run... How about some facts?
A study by the United States Chamber of Commerce found that 86% of franchises opened within the last five years were still under the same ownership and 97% of those were still open for business.
A U.S. Department of Commerce study showed that during that time, less than 5% of franchise businesses were closed each year.
A new franchised business is opened every 8 minutes of every business day.
Non-franchised business start-ups have a failure rate of 85%.
