Why a Franchise of The Maids?

The Industry

20 years prior to the inception of The Maids International, the average size of a home in the US was under 1,000 square feet. By the 1970’s home sizes had nearly doubled while the family unit stayed the same. That meant more square footage to clean per person which also meant more time invested into the home versus outside activities. As technology became more and more mainstream, the culture shifted from analog to digital, and began to demand things instantly which ultimately put a premium on time. As a result, services like residential cleaning began to thrive with the average middle to upper class individual willing to now trade their money for their time!

The Opportunity

And now, the future! The Maids started with innovating thinking and continues to drive change through innovation to this day. The brand remains in good hands with leadership cut from the same cloth; continuing that same pioneering thinking that birthed a brand 40+ years ago. Yet, The Maids is not simply resting on what got us here. Rather, it is driving forward with new innovation; company store incubators to test new ideas for tomorrow, massive investment into industry leading technology, and through strategic alliances with companies like Amazon and Proctor & Gamble. The Maids is driving change in the industry by forging a new path forward, and you have an unprecedented opportunity to be a part of the next chapter in our story!
