German Village, J. Alexander’s & Columbus, Ohio House Cleaning

I really like Columbus, Ohio. A few weeks ago my co-founder and I visited Columbus House Cleaning Franchisee, Brian Murphy. Brian Murphy is known as Murph to all his friends, and from what I have witnessed he has a lot of Ohio Buckeye friends. Murph is running very tight operations, his house cleaners are first rate, and we were very impressed with what we saw at his maid service office.

Great Food @ J. Alexander’s

We asked Murph where he would like to eat, and he didn’t delay in suggesting J. Alexander’s. I loved it. When we walked in their front doors on Vantage Drive, the aroma from the kitchen embraced us like an old friend. We knew a great meal was ahead and their staff didn’t disappoint. Food was delicious, check out the vegetable plate below…

Maid Franchisee Wins Big Contract

You’ve Got MAIDS Franchisee Wins Big Contract

I get ton of emails, calls and text messages from my Franchise Partners. This is a particularly great email! Sure our primary business in high end residential cleaning services for Clients that have discerning expectations and are ready to pay for it. That being said, many offices also have a commercial cleaning division that would go after big jobs like this.

Maid Franchisee Wins Big

Commercial Cleaning a Different Animal

Commercial Cleaning requires different staff, different equipment, and different processes. At You’ve Got MAIDS we strongly recommend that our Franchise Partners wait till they are doing more than $22,000 a month in residential sales before tackle commercial cleaning. Further, when they are ready to expand into Commercial, they should hire a commercial cleaning manager who would be responsible for client acquisition, hiring staff, and quality control.

In our ever changing world many people are taking small steps to save our earth. You’ve Got MAIDS® has taken the initiative; we’re proud to be both environmentally friendly and price competitive with companies that are not bio-friendly. It starts off with the phone estimate. Customers prefer this convenient and straightforward method which also conserves fuel and paper. In fact, most of our correspondences are over the phone or via email. We further lower our fuel consumption and carbon footprint by having our maids carpool to your house. Green cleaning your home with microfiber cleaning cloths, HEPA filtered vacuums and non-toxic cleaning products is a step in the green direction.  After all, it is the sum of the smaller acts that gives way to the greatest results. On behalf of the staff of You’ve Got MAIDS® thank you for partnering with us in our vision to protect our planet.


A professional residential maid service is a business which provides house cleaning for homeowners who do not have the time nor desire to clean their own homes. Residential maid services have become increasingly common in America with an industry growth rate of 20% a year.


A professional residential cleaning service, like You’ve Got MAIDS®, may be a few more dollars than a part-time independent under the table maid(normally between $0.71 & $1.42 a day), but it offers numerous advantages. We provide screened, trained, bonded and insured maids that bring all of the necessary cleaning supplies. In fact, when you hire us, you can delete cleaning products from your shopping list. Also, as a bona fide employer, You’ve Got MAIDS® is responsible for withholding Social Security income taxes, Medicare Tax, FUTA & SUTA. Most importantly You’ve Got MAIDS® worker compensation insurance insulates you & your family from personal injury attorneys.


You’ve Got MAIDS® strives to deliver more than expected each time. We get it.  A lot of residential home cleaning service providers over promise and under deliver. At You’ve Got MAIDS® we want long term relationships with our customers, and our goal is to under promise and over deliver.


If you notice the maids do something that makes you happy, let them know. Better yet let us know by clicking our feedback button.  We care.  Your compliments are words of encouragement… like sunshine to your maids…they will not grow without it! Our CEO reads each and every piece of feedback before forwarding it to the local franchise office.

At You’ve Got MAIDS® we understand that communication is key, and we welcome all feedback…not just the good stuff! We carefully review and share everything with the maids in a construction manner. The good to great feedback gets shared at the morning meeting in front of everyone, and might go on our Wall of Fame! The not so great feedback is reviewed in private, and goes into the employees file.  As a company, we consume feedback for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
