Starting a business in a new industry can bring about a lot of questions for entrepreneurs like you, and it’s no different for those interested in joining the floor care franchise space. Starting a business of any kind can be daunting, particularly if you are trying to do everything on your own under a traditional small business model. Given the commercial cleaning industry's technical nature, you might wonder if you have what it takes to build a successful business.
This is where the franchise business model can prove its worth many times over. Franchising with an established brand gives industry newcomers a business partner with a clear, demonstrated track record of launching successful locations. Most entrepreneurs search for a franchisor who can provide them with valuable resources, such as the following:
MilliCare Floor and Textile Care has served as a leader in floor care franchising for the past 25+ years, helping many beginners in commercial cleaning start a business full of growth potential. Our business model has been carefully developed over multiple decades to best enable MilliCare franchise owners to hit the ground running with plenty of positive momentum.
A major part of our overall success is driven by our individual franchise owners – which makes it imperative that we partner with the right entrepreneurs. As a result, we look for several key traits in our franchisees that often play a role in their chances of success. If you have enough of these characteristics, then the MilliCare team could be the right fit for you!
While certain franchise opportunities may require you to have a background in the industry or management or ownership experience, that is not the case at MilliCare. Our team has achieved success through partnering with a wide variety of skilled entrepreneurs. To be a MilliCare franchise owner, you don’t need to already be an expert on all things related to floor and textile care. Once you sign our franchising agreement, we’ll help you familiarize yourself with the commercial cleaning industry and get you up to speed on your responsibilities for running a MilliCare franchise.
If you’re wondering how to start a floor cleaning business, you don’t need a crazy amount of certifications or high-end products – especially if you franchise with us! Here are some of the traits that have set many of our franchise owners up for success. If you see these characteristics in yourself, then a MilliCare franchise could be the exact opportunity that you’ve been searching for!
In the commercial cleaning industry, generating recurring revenue is one of the best ways to strengthen the performance of your business. MilliCare franchise owners need to be driven in their efforts to attract and win new clients to generate further growth.
If you can do this, then you will have a strong chance of making each commercial client a loyal customer. Thanks to the excellent level of service the MilliCare brand is known to provide, our franchise owners are able to retain clients at a rate of over 90% - among the very best in the business!
Another contributor to our outstanding customer retention rate is the customer-first focus that owners bring to their MilliCare franchises. Each client has a facility with its own unique needs and requirements when it comes to commercial cleaning responsibilities.
Entrusting MilliCare with maintaining and cleaning their commercial locations is not something that property owners take lightly. This is why we choose to partner with entrepreneurs who also recognize this and make it their top priority to earn customer trust through our services. As a MilliCare franchise owner, you will be able to leverage our full set of comprehensive services to meet and exceed client expectations.
The floor care business is all about recognizing challenges and addressing them proactively. Organizations that fail to do so are often faced with a much bigger mess to clean up (usually in a literal sense). We expect franchisees to be proactive rather than reactive, as clients will expect that you will have completely resolved their issues by the estimated completion time – even if additional problems pop up along the way.
Luckily for you, franchising with MilliCare means that you won’t have to handle this responsibility on your own. Our team is full of experienced veterans of the commercial cleaning industry who can guide you in resolving any cleaning-related challenge you or your clients face. Responsiveness is a major reason why the MilliCare brand is so highly favored among commercial property managers. We instill this mindset from the very top, including in our corporate team’s communication with individual franchise owners like you.
Owning a MilliCare franchise is not just about cleaning skills or expertise – it’s about the leadership and vision you foster at your location. With our team by your side, we firmly believe that you can leverage these traits to become the top floor care service provider in your territory.
