Twenty-five years ago, Todd Hopkins began a thesis for his Master’s degree. His goal was to implement faith-based principles into a commercial and janitorial business franchise model that was scalable and easy to enter.
Now, nearly two and a half decades later, the profitable and growing Office Pride brand is showing signs that it will surpass its original goals and become America’s leading business cleaning service. Just off the heels of the Office Pride 25-Year Anniversary Celebration and Annual Retreat, several franchise operators have earned awards that show why Office Pride slays its competition.
“We treat your business like our business,” said David Stein of East Texas. Stein recently was awarded both the Integrity Award and Community Service Award. “We operate with integrity, day in and day out…from floor to ceiling, we make our customers our number one priority,” said Stein.
Two ways this business cleaning service outshines its competition include its community impact and involvement and the fact that it always goes the extra mile.
Not Just About the Bottom Line
Office Pride encourages each of its owner/operators to get involved in their communities. Many of the Office Pride owners serve on nonprofit boards and support local organizations to improve the lives of the community in which they serve.
Brothers Jason and Simon Courtney of Pensacola, Florida recently won the Franchise of the Year Award from Office Pride. The brothers make local community give-back a priority as they plan their business growth and expand their customer base at a manageable rate.
“Each community is different, and there is no cookie cutter approach to cleaning,” said Jason. “Our business is relational and we recognize the need for loyal and trustworthy people taking care of your cleaning needs.”
It’s this relationship between Office Pride and its clients that earned Office Pride a 20% sales growth in 2016 according to Franchise Times Magazine.
Going the Extra Mile
It’s a foundational concept in the Office Pride Culture Book (yep, Todd Hopkins wrote his company’s own Culture Book!) And from the time a new franchise is born, each owner is educated on the vision, purpose, mission and values of Office Pride.
“We are responsive, professional and consistent,” said Andre Truitt of Rapid City, South Dakota. Andre and his wife Karie won the coveted “Beverly McQueen Brand Ambassador” award this year. The couple points to striving to exceed customer expectations each and every time their staff enter a building.
Many janitorial and commercial cleaning companies attempt to short-cut to increase profitability. This is not part of the culture of Office Pride. Instead, Office Pride owners go the extra mile and learn the ins and outs of each of their client’s building needs. Then, the bid for cleaning services is custom-tailored to those specific needs and based upon a solid model of hard work and integrity.
“We couldn’t be prouder of being Office Pride owners,” said Karie. “We get excellent support and training from Office Pride’s headquarters and we are able to implement the best the cleaning industry has to offer, including the top-rated Green Seal Technology.”
