2019 Pink Blazer Celebration Trip in Key West

The most profitable franchise owners in the Two Maids & A Mop franchise network converged on the tropical island of Key West, FL to celebrate their amazing success. This year’s group was comprised of Anthony Truong of Orlando, FL & Elizabeth Lamar of Huntsville, AL. Both of these franchisees grew their top line revenue and maintained very lean operations to produce impressive profits for their businesses.

“Our business model has always been built on a lean operating environment coupled with a strong emphasis on consistent increases to the top line,” said Ron Holt, CEO of Two Maids & A Mop. “Anthony and Liz have built two amazing businesses and it was an honor to celebrate their success with them down in Key West. They both work so hard inside their businesses and their bottom line proves it.

The Pink Blazer Club is the most exclusive society in the Two Maids & A Mop franchise system. It’s membership is comprised of the most profitable franchisee that is less than two years old and the most profitable franchisee older than two years old. It’s an honor that only two franchisees are able to receive each year and is widely coveted within our organization.

Interview With A Franchisee: Brian Stahl of Panama City Beach, FL

Two Maids & A Mop original location opened in Pensacola, FL on April Fools’ Day just over 16 years ago in 2003. Since that fateful first day of April, we’ve been fortunate to grow at an unbelievable pace by totally disrupting the residential cleaning industry. We’re excited to announce yet another franchise grand opening in the state of Florida by partnering with Brian Stahl in Panama City Beach, FL.

Brian is a civil engineer by trade and has enjoyed a 29-year career within the Air Force Reserve. His experience as a high-ranking member of the Air Force Reserve accompanied by his very successful civilian career as an engineer has placed him at a place to consider investment opportunities as a semi-absent business owner. Brian is very well connected within the local Panama City community and plans to leverage his professional experience and local knowledge to build a fast-growing franchise.

“In this industry, I believe the demand for our services is literally unlimited and my plan is to leverage the business model to become Panama City’s largest cleaning service. In five years, I’d like to leverage the success of this initial franchise and open a second location.” Brian Stahl of Panama City Beach, FL

Two Maids & A Mop is widely known for its innovative approach to marketing within the residential cleaning industry. We focus primarily on digital marketing channels and offer a unique selling proposition called the Pay for Performance Plan that is unmatched by our competitors. However, our strongest position remains the hungry heart within our franchisees across the country. We’re dedicated to becoming the largest, fastest growing, most innovative residential cleaning service in America and our franchisees represent the true secret behind our success. Congrats to Brian Stahl for becoming our next successful franchise owner!

Two Maids & A Mop Named to 2019 Franchise 500

The 2019 Franchise 500 has been released by Entrepreneur Magazine and our brand is honored to be ranked #285 in this year’s list of best franchises. Placement in the ultra-exclusive Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, as evidenced by the fact that Entrepreneur Magazine received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever.

Two Maids & A Mop also earned the #5 ranking in the residential cleaning category. “This is an incredible honor that is a direct result of our long-term commitment to disrupting the residential cleaning industry, “said Ron Holt, CEO & Founder of Two Maids & A Mop. “The maid service industry has experienced very little change since its inception more than 30 years ago. Earning such a honorable distinction such as the Franchise 500 places us in the top 5 brands in the entire country, yet we still serve less than 100 markets across the country. The sky is the limit to our growth and our brand is excited to be a disruptive force to our industry.”

The primary factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.

Over its 40 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees.
