Description of franchise system
If you are looking for a business opportunity with a thriving future and solid support from a trusted company, a Merry Maids cleaning franchise is for you. With more than 30 years of experience, Merry Maids is the world leader in the residential industry with more than 900 cleaning franchises in the U.S. and Canada, and more opening all the time.
In 1988, Merry Maids joined the ServiceMaster group of home service companies. Since its founding in 1947, ServiceMaster has remained dedicated to helping homeowners keep their homes clean, safe and comfortable. The companies in the ServiceMaster Family of Brands include familiar names such as TruGreen, Furniture Medic and ServiceMaster Clean.
Merry Maids, the largest residential cleaning service in the world, has consistently been ranked as the Number 1 residential cleaning franchise.
Industry experts predict demand for maid service will continue to grow at an accelerated rate as time-starved consumers continue to buy time-saving services well into the 21st century. The resultant combination of these factors, along with Merry Maids’ experience and brand-name awareness, makes them the industry leader. This gives Merry Maids franchises a significant, sustainable, franchise business opportunity.
In addition to the health of the maid service market, ServiceMaster is a growing, thriving international corporation with annual revenues of almost $4 billion. Shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the market symbol SVM. ServiceMaster's first franchise was established in 1952. Today, the company has more than 5,000 franchise partners on four continents.
As one of the companies under the ServiceMaster name, Merry Maids has many resources to continually improve training, marketing and people development for Merry Maids franchise owners. Merry Maids franchise owners also benefit from national marketing efforts made on behalf of all of the brands, and the name recognition of partner companies.
