The Cleaning Authority offers returning veterans great business opportunities
On Tuesday, The Cleaning Authority announced an exciting new offer for all qualified armed forces veterans-a full 50% off The Cleaning Authority's initial franchise fee. This is something The Cleaning Authority is proud to offer, and it also believes it is good business.
"As a veteran myself, I fully understand the importance of serving my country, and I can't accept the fact that so many of our fine, highly-trained, highly-qualified veterans are having difficulty finding success when they return to the business world," says Allen Thrift, Senior VP of The Cleaning Authority, and proud veteran of the US Navy.
"We believe we have a lot to offer with our franchise opportunity, and that these people also have a lot to offer us."
The discount is simple. When you qualify as a franchisee, the Initial Franchise Fee will be reduced by 50% for all qualified veterans, former members of the US Armed Forces, that have been honourably discharged. Better still, through the Patriot Express Loan Programme, many veterans can also qualify for streamlined loans partially guaranteed through the Small Business Administration.
Brian Wallace, also a Navy veteran - and The Cleaning Authority's 2011 Franchisee of the Year, explains further, saying: "In the Navy, I learned the value of having a plan (back then we called it orders), and then taking the responsibility to follow it. I've been able to transfer that learning to running my business here at The Cleaning Authority, where there is an excellent plan and great support as well, and it's worked out very well for me."
in 1989, The Cleaning Authority currently operates 175 residential cleaning franchise locations throughout the US. It combines simple business fundamentals with solid systems and what it believes is an unprecedented support infrastructure, offering franchisees innovative and sophisticated methods to develop their businesses. Ambitious and effective customer acquisition programmes and thorough employee management and client satisfaction systems, drive cash based, residual revenue.
