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.

“Take a cue from Two Maids & A Mop founder Ron Holt: Six months after starting that cleaning business, he introduced a pay-for-performance plan that determines compensation according to how customers rate employees’ service, on a 1-to-10 scale. Customers loved the idea, and employees were motivated to boost their rankings. Holt added 175 employees, and his sales skyrocketed.”

The Pay for Performance Plan indeed saved Two Maids & A Mop. It created an instant selling tool that was extremely unique in our industry. And even better, it created an ownership mentality that was in dire need during those early years. That was a long time ago but the truth is the plan still serves both purposes. The compensation plan continues to be a true purple cow in a very crowded marketplace. Two Maids & A Mop is just as different as a silly purple cow and the biggest difference maker continues to be our unique Pay for Performance compensation plan. Thanks to Entrepreneur Magazine for the plug!!
