Two Maids & A Mop Recognized as #11 Top New Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine

Entrepreneur Magazine just announced its list of the next big brands in franchising and we’re excited to be ranked as the 11th best top new franchise in America. The list of high-flying franchises is comprised of brands that appear to be on the cusp of becoming a nationally known brand.

“Our story dates back more than 15 years ago after we opened the first office on April Fools’ Day way back in 2003,” said Ron Holt, CEO & Founder of Two Maids & A Mop. “I opened that first office in Pensacola as a sort of business incubator. I tried just about everything until I finally landed on the best idea of my life: the now-famous Pay for Performance Plan. I’m honored for our brand to be included in this up and coming list but also reminded that we didn’t just start building this business yesterday. It’s been a long journey built on years of strategic planning and execution.”

The brands included on the list are ranked based on the scores they received in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 evaluation, which analyzes more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

Two Maids & A Mop Named to Franchise 500

Entrepreneur Magazine has released its annual Franchise 500 listing and we’re excited to announce that Two Maids & A Mop has been selected #235 in this year’s prestigious list of franchise companies. Check out what Entrepreneur Magazine had to say about this year’s listing.

“Our annual Franchise 500 list tends to evolve by degrees. It is our continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the franchise marketplace, and we look at fundamental factors — unit growth, investment cost, brand stability and more — as well as factors like social media presence. And this means, over the years, that new categories shift in and out. Franchises come and go. But some stalwarts remain dominant for decades, having mastered that savvy balance between innovation and reliability. This year, in fact, we have a convenient comparison to the past: It’s the first time in 25 years that more than 1,000 companies applied to be part of our ranking. To be exact, we received 1,023 entries this time.”

The recent growth within the Two Maids & A Mop franchise network is so exciting. We’re a small family comprised of ex-corporate executives, stay at home moms, serial entrepreneurs & business people searching to disrupt industry. Times are so good right now and we’re still so early in the game. We’re proud of this big-time national recognition and owe much of our success to our great franchisees and their hard-working employees. Go Two Maids!!

Entrepreneur Magazine Names Two Maids & A Mop One of Top Franchises For Veterans

The 2017 list of top franchises for veterans to own was recently published by Entrepreneur Magazine. The designation was earned after interviews with actual franchise owners and by also accessing veteran-based incentives for the franchise opportunity. More than 1,000 franchise opportunities were surveyed.

“We have multiple veterans participating in our franchise network and we’re proud they have chosen us to help create a better financial future”, said David Luke, COO of Two Maids & A Mop. “Our doors will always be open to veterans. They believe in systems, work tirelessly inside their business and serve as great leaders in their community and workplace.”

Two Maids & A Mop is a member of VetFran, a membrship-only group supported by the International Franchise Association. The group connects veterans with franchise opportunities and each member agrees to offer some type of financial incentive to a prospective franchisee. More than 6,500 servicemen and women have become franchisees and more are being added every month through the IFA’s VetFran program.

Two Maids & A Mop offers a 10% discount towards the initial franchise fee to any veteran of the US armed forces. To check out this year’s list of veteran-friendly franchises, click here for the Entrepreneur Magazine list.
