milliCare Continues to Post Strong International Growth
In developing countries and those with strong economic growth, entrepreneurial interest in industrial-related franchising is surging
The milliCare commercial floor cleaning franchise brand is taking off across the United States, and its growth is not limited to these shores. Overseas interest in the dynamic brand is heating up, as well.
“We are fielding a lot of inquiries from existing floor-cleaning companies in many other countries, as well as from entrepreneurs who are interested in our services and the business in general, as well as wanting to learn how franchising would be more beneficial to them than starting their own commercial floor-cleaning company from scratch,” says Bill Helton, Director of Franchise Development.
Multiple countries on deck for new franchises
Currently there are milliCare commercial floor cleaning franchise agreements being signed or closing in on completion in Canada, Mexico, Australia, Brazil, South Africa, India and England. The India agreement is for five territories, showcasing the growth strategy many new milliCare franchise owners have in mind.
“This is a very scalable business, which means that owners can grow it alongside their local economy,” Helton says. “When there’s a lot of new commercial growth, milliCare can expand with it, which is good for adding to current clients’ jobs, developing new relationships and increasing revenue.”
Overseas growth matches strong U.S. interest
Back in the United States, milliCare continues to sign new franchise agreements in many states, showing that interest remains strong here, as well.
“Our growth isn’t explosive, but very controlled and on track for what we are looking to do,” Helton says. “We are very pleased with how many people we are hearing from who are already in the business, because that’s a real vote of confidence from professionals who know the industry and think we have something special and unique to offer them.”
