FBR Names You’ve Got Maids® one of Top 100 Franchises for Military Veterans
Charleston-based franchisor earns third-consecutive annual commendation
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA: “America’s Finest Cleaning Service,” Charleston-based home cleaning franchisor You’ve Got Maids® is thrilled to announce that for the third consecutive year the company was recently named as being one of the Top 100 franchises to qualify for its 2017 Top Franchises for Veterans list. The announcement comes on the heels of the publication of FBR’s fifth-annual “Veterans in Franchising” report, in which the firm names 100 of the best franchising companies in the country for U.S. military veterans to work with.
To identify the top brands, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from approximately 25,000 veteran franchise owners representing over 250 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.
You’ve Got Maids® franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
“The reality is that two-thirds of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are simply average or below average opportunities,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “That’s the whole reason we do what we do, which is help prospective franchisees understand which franchises are the top opportunities based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. The 100 companies named in this year’s report received the highest ratings from the veterans that own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”
“Being named a Top Franchise for Veterans again in 2017 is a tremendous honor. It goes without saying,” says You’ve Got Maids® CEO Frank Berger of the recent announcement. “My own father was a veteran of U.S. Army, so It gives us a great feeling to know we’re doing right by our military heroes.
“And for us, working with veterans has been an unbridled win-win. Roughly a third of our franchise owners are veterans, and we have veterans-turned-franchise owners representing all five branches of the military,” Berger continues with pride.
“And the folks from our military turn out to be excellent at what we do. They tend to really take to our system, what we call our ‘System of Success,’” he continues. “They take to that quicker than the average person. They are systems people and because of that I think, they have become some of our best franchise owners.”
