Join the cleaning franchise that Entrepreneur magazine has ranked #1 in the residential cleaning industry. The Maid Franchisees have been the key to making The Maids the quality leader in residential cleaning, and in turn they have the potential to make it big.

Our Average Gross Sales for a franchisee in business at least four years is $850,000* The franchise model is one of the key drivers fueling small business success in the US and Canada today.

Franchises have a much higher success rate compared to starting your own business from the ground up.

The Maids Requirements

Expect to invest about $200,000 in your first year as a franchisee. This investment includes all initial fees, product and equipment, and all start-up and operating costs.

You will typically start with six employees in addition to the owner. You need two full-time office employees (including you) and four to five team members. You will need a vehicle and The Maids helps you with specifications and branding. An office is required so your team has a place to start and end each day, equipment and supplies can be stored, and training and scheduling computers can be set up. Parking for your team vehicles is also important. Industrial office space works well.

The Best Training and Support

The Maids goes beyond classroom training with our in-house expertise and LearnShare Learning Consortium membership. You receive “best in class” performance support, including:

  • Seven weeks of online Start Up Training with The Maids’ Foundation Coaching
  • Nine days of administrative and cleaning system training at The Maids’ corporate headquarters
  • Four days of Power Training at your new location to train your first team
  • State-of-the-art Learning Management System
  • Web-based documentation
  • Illustrated quick reference guides
  • Sales and Customer Service training
  • Software training

Provide a career path for your employees when you join The Maids. As part of our employee-retention program, our Learning Management System tracks training and certification for each of your participating maids, with additional training provided to those seeking advancement opportunities.
