The house cleaning industry is very competitive. The major competitors include independents and franchises such as Merry Maids®, The Maids®, the Maid Brigade® MaidPro®, Cleaning Authority®, ServiceMaster®, Jani-Pro®, Chem-Dry® and Jani-King®. Despite the presence of competitors, this business has thrived, grown and has SIGNIFICANT scalability/growth for a new owner. Independents can easily start with minimum capital and, sometimes, without insurance or bonding. However, independents do not offer the repeatability, reliability and systems provided by a franchise. The seller feels that independents do not have the depth to handle large numbers of customers and are limited in size and scalability. Independents typically work IN their business, often cleaning homes as part of crews. Franchise competitors do not offer the proprietary franchise systems, tools and resources provided by this franchisor. The franchise is a tested business model with franchisees generating higher revenue than their competitor franchises.
