Office Pride Announces Strategic Franchise Expansion Plan
As Systemwide Revenue Surges, America’s Most Admired Commercial Cleaning Franchise Puts Plan in Motion to Grow into New Markets
PALM HARBOR, Fla. – A wave of momentum is propelling Office Pride’s growth.
Amid 20 percent average annual revenue growth for its franchise offices, the commercial cleaning concept announced today a plan to increase its presence through expansion into targeted regions across the Southeast, Midwest and Texas.
The franchise has reached a tipping point as an increasing number of individuals and teams of franchise investors are showing true admiration for the brand’s unique ability to offer a path to entrepreneurial dreams through a system that is consistent with their values.
“The moment is here. We’re on the cusp of a dramatic increase of the footprint of Office Pride,” said Gerry Henley, executive vice president of Office Pride, who joined the company over a year ago to lead the growth charge for the company. “The pieces are in place and the stage has been set for expansion of Office Pride unlike ever before.”
Henley and the leadership team are amplifying what already has become a widely acclaimed franchise model. Unlike any other commercial cleaning franchise, Office Pride bridges entrepreneurship in a profitable business with personal values including honesty, integrity, hard work and a sincere commitment to faith. This rock solid foundation has offered a launching pad for several new initiatives being implemented to foster the brand’s growth.
With average office revenues nearing $300,000, as outlined in Item 19 of Office Pride’s Franchise Disclosure Document, the concept has looked from within to develop a refreshed franchise business plan made up of the most proven and profitable practices in the franchise system. The “Pathway to Profits” initiative puts these programs into place for new and existing franchisees, while implementing accountability measures.
Similarly, Office Pride has launched a new franchisee onboarding program – a launch process that takes franchisees through an intensive three-week training program. The new training processes are equipping franchisees to better run a successful business, while providing the corporate headquarters with a system that can help scale up the size of the franchise system.
Additionally, Office Pride is putting a keen focus on a new conversion program that offers a smooth transition for existing commercial cleaning businesses looking for sustainable growth as the landscape for running a business changes. Office Pride has crafted its model to stay ahead of often challenging regulatory and governmental policy changes, which is an attractive element for independents to convert to Office Pride.
“We’ve been franchising for 20 years and in business for 25…but we’re constantly challenging ourselves to provide a franchise model that stays ahead of the curve,” added Henley. “There is far more to our story that still needs to be written, and the next chapter is the best yet.”
Office Pride is consistently recognized in Entrepreneur’s prestigious “Franchise 500” ranking, scoring at the top of the “Best Low Cost Franchises”, “Top Home-Based Franchises” and “Overall Best Franchises” categories. Likewise, franchise industry satisfaction research company, Franchise Business Review, consistently scores Office Pride as a “Top Low Cast Franchise” and recently inducted the business into the Franchise Business Review “Hall of Fame,” an honor reserved for elite franchise brands.
Todd Hopkins, an accomplished entrepreneur, industry innovator and author, started Office Pride in 1992. Serving as CEO today, Todd continues to set the course for the company as he shares strong bonds with the entire Office Pride franchise community. Hopkins has authored several best-selling books based on Biblical business principles including Five Wisdoms for Entrepreneur Survival, The Carrot Chaser and The Janitor, and is now writing a book to inspire entrepreneurs to stress less.
Hopkins and the balance of the leadership team have crafted the Office Pride business model for franchisees that possess core values aligning with the brand’s mission to honor faith and promote morals by building mutually beneficial relationships with customers, employees, vendors and other Office Pride franchisees.
