Franchising is making owners out of many former employees

For many, the dream of one day being their own boss seems like something that will always remain just a dream. The good news is that even if you don’t have an idea for a new business, there are existing companies that are more than willing to offer you an entryway into business ownership as a franchisee. If you have never considered the benefits of franchising, you have been missing out on a great vehicle for financial freedom moving forward.

Did you know that some 95% of non-franchised new businesses are destined to fail? It’s true, and it speaks to the appeal of franchises for would-be entrepreneurs looking for a foot in the door and an opportunity to become their own boss. There are many advantages to casting your lot with a company offering franchise opportunities.

  • The parent company has a tried and true system in place of launching successful franchises
  • Amy of these companies will offer financing and special start-up programs to appeal to different budgets
  • As a franchisee, you can benefit from the name recognition certain companies enjoy
  • Most parent companies provide extensive training for their franchisees
  • Many companies offer their new franchisees solid business leads
  • Ongoing administrative support from the Corporate Office
  • And more

Tapping into a proven method of success is just plain good business. Furthermore, many companies allow franchisees to ease into their business at their own pace. This organic approach allows for a less stressful transition into business ownership.

Most franchise companies welcome first-time business owners, so ownership experience is not a pre-requisite should you be interested in this route. The best place to start is by researching the types of companies and industries you are interested in. Narrow down your list, then contact the companies you are interested in to get a better idea of how the franchising process works.

For those who have dreamed of owning their own business, the dream is alive and well in the form of franchising. Thanks to this option, the transition from employee to owner may be closer at hand than you think.

New Award to Anago – Congratulations!

Lucky Number 7: On the Heels of Adding a Record Seven Master Franchises in 2013, Anago Cleaning Systems Ranked On Franchise Business Review’s Annual Satisfaction List for the Seventh Consecutive Year.


POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), a leading commercial cleaning franchise with 35 Master Franchises throughout the U.S. and internationally, has announced its ranking in the Franchise Business Review’s 2014 Franchise Satisfaction Awards (FBR50) for the seventh straight year. Now in its ninth year, the FBR50 is the only awards program to rank companies based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction.

Franchise Business Review surveyed all active Master Franchisees in the Anago System, as well as franchisees from over 350 other brands. Anago was the highest-ranked commercial cleaning company on the list. The survey included questions relating to the franchisee’s experience and satisfaction with such topics as training and support, core values, leadership, financial opportunity, operations and product development. “We are thrilled to be ranked for the seventh consecutive year on Franchise Business Review’s FBR50,” said Adam Povlitz, Executive Vice President for Anago. “This continued ranking validates our brand and confirms that the franchise support and resources provided to our Master and Unit Franchisees all throughout the world have helped these entrepreneurs enjoy a fulfilling personal and professional life.”

In 2013, Anago announced a record year with the addition of seven Master Franchises and hopes to add another six Master Franchises in 2014, with a focus on developing in Houston, Austin, Phoenix, Chicago and Kansas City, among other markets. The strength of the brand was not only represented through its growth in domestic Master Franchises, but also by its international expansion into Canada. Having opened its first location in Vancouver in 2013, Anago plans to grow its footprint in Canada by expanding into more markets including Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.

As further verification to its success over the past year, Anago was listed in USA Today’s Top 50 Franchises for Minorities; ranked 7th on a list of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Home Based Franchises for its Unit Franchise opportunity and 10th on the magazine’s list of Top 10 Fastest-Growing Franchises; and named in Franchise Business Review’s Top 100 leading franchises for Veterans in 2013.
“2013 was a great year for franchising as a whole. Many of our top companies had the best year in their history, and their franchisee satisfaction reflects that,” said Michelle Rowan, President of Franchise Business Review.

Investing in a new business is a stressful and difficult decision that you would not want to rush. So, what is the first step towards getting your independence and be your own boss? Let’s talk about running a Commercial Cleaning Business for instance, and the same will apply to any other industry that you may choose. A few options will be available to you:

–        Start on your own janitorial business

–        Buying an existing cleaning business opportunity

–        Buy a commercial cleaning Franchise

Are you ready for the challenges that you will be facing if you decide to start a new business from scratch, including how to market your new cleaning business, how to find new customers, how to prepare and submit a janitorial service quote, how to price your janitorial services, where to find a supplier for cleaning products and equipment, how to differentiate yourself and be competitor in the cleaning industry, and of course how to clean efficiently, deliver fast and quality cleaning services to your customers… and that’s only to name a few of the challenges for a new cleaning business owner.

Buying an existing business would not be less challenging. It has its own risks, even if the existing cleaning business was up and running with a system in place that might or might not be strong and healthy. Existing cleaning business opportunities are most of the time overpriced, and you’d better be sure to do your due diligence in depth with the help of specialized professionals, which would also increase your initial investment. An existing business may also have been founded on the ex-owner’s relationships that could be difficult for you to keep and manage. The learning curve might be long and jeopardize the continuity of the business, which would end up in a situation where you would start losing accounts that you might never recover. Managing and mentoring employees that have been in the cleaning business before you would also represent its own difficulties that you’d better be ready to face.

Buying a commercial cleaning franchise is the safest option and the smartest way to shortcut most the difficulties that we listed above. When you buy a franchise, you join an existing proven system in place that will save you the trouble of learning it by yourself the hard way. According to statistics, less than 25% of new businesses survive compared to 85% of new franchises. The reason is obvious. Franchisees benefit from the experience, the support and knowledge shared with the Franchisor and its successful system that has been in place for many years. In addition, our janitorial franchisees for instance do not have to face the challenges associated with a marketing campaign, because we provide them with customers and help them to grow their commercial cleaning company every step of the way.
