Ability to build a strong base of business and adapt to changing marketplace forces in different cultural and economic settings is seen as a strong positive.
Commercial industrial buildings can be found just about everywhere on the globe, and they all have floors that need cleaning and maintenance. That’s why milliCare commercial floor cleaning franchise owners have busy and successful businesses in the United States and abroad, with new countries being added to the list all the time.
So, it’s no surprise that Entrepreneur magazine has repeated its inclusion of milliCare - a commercial cleaning franchise - for its 2023 Top Global Franchises list, a showcase of the world’s best franchise opportunities.
Entrepreneur reviews hundreds of global franchise opportunities and assesses them through many different lenses. It’s not just a matter of product offerings, it's also how well a brand can fit into a country’s culture and work for entrepreneurs there. The ongoing adaptability of milliCare in this regard is one reason why the brand repeats on this list, says Bill Helton, Director of Franchise Development.
“Entrepreneur knows that owning a franchise business isn’t a cookie-cutter concept,” Helton says. “You can’t just drop one into any country and expect it to operate like another one halfway around the world. We assess what the challenges are in every marketplace, and then help that new franchise owner grow and develop a service platform that makes sense for the market he or she services.”
Millions of print readers will see the rankings in print, as well as more than 200,000 Entrepreneur App subscribers, according to the publication. That’s likely to spur even more interest in milliCare both in the United States and abroad, where Master Franchise agreements continue to be signed all around the world.
“A milliCare franchise is a business that has appeal wherever commercial real estate is,” Helton says. “And we can offer carpet, tile and composite commercial floor cleaning, which means a franchise owner can service just about any type of business. Then, if they so choose, that franchise can add other services, such as upholstery cleaning and tile renewal. Our scalable, flexible model is very appealing, as our continued global growth makes clear.”
A milliCare Floor & Textile Care franchise is a business-to-business floor and textile maintenance company, more than 50 locations in 29 states and six countries.
