General FAQs

Q: What is the difference between a Master Franchise and a Janitorial Franchise?

A: The Master Franchise opportunity is directed at experienced executives and entrepreneurs capable of starting and managing a regional office. The Master Franchisee is responsible for new commercial account sales on behalf of their janitorial franchisees, recruitment of Janitorial Franchisees, and customer relations support for the territory.

The Janitorial Franchisee is an owner/operator who provides cleaning services for their commercial accounts; the regional office provides support for the Janitorial Franchisee by providing initial customers, billing/invoicing services, customer relations support, and certification programs.
