CEO of Two Maids & A Mop Profiled in Leading Newspaper

Ron Holt was recently interviewed by AL.com; a leading newspaper magazine representing markets throughout the state of Alabama. The interview chronicled Ron’s journey from a small startup into today’s fast-growth towards a nationally recognized brand.

“There are another 250 markets we can enter in the U.S.,” Holt said. “We’re getting close to being sold out in the southeast, but it’s wide open in the northeast and out west.” The residential cleaning service franchise already has 46 locations, which includes the corporate location in Birmingham. “We are the fastest growing residential cleaning service in the country,” he said. “When we had one store, we had the same vision and people thought we were crazy. But we believed in it then, and we believe in it now.” Those plans present a big growth curve, but Holt said he feels the company is equipped internally to make the leap. Using its on-demand scheduling, Two Maids & A Mop sees itself as a “disruptor” business, like Uber.

The Two Maids & A Mop story has been recognized by more than 50 leading publications; from CNN Money, Fox News, Forbes, Success, Yahoo News, Better Homes & Garden, Entrepreneur and Inc. Magazine. To read the entire AL.com interview, please click the following link:  Two Maids CEO Interview.

Two Maids & A Mop Featured in Franchise Business Review Magazine

Franchise Business Review, a leading magazine dedicated to the franchise industry, recently published an article detailing questions for a franchise candidate to consider when evaluating different franchise opportunities. We were honored to be included within the article and excited to share our thoughts. In our opinion, one of the least considered attributes of a franchise opportunity is its ability to compete locally. We’ve always considered our business model to be our best competitive advantage since it’s not only proven, but different. There are so many cookie cutter options in the franchise industry and Two Maids & A Mop stands out clearly as a result. From our industry-changing Pay for Performance Plan to our focus on digital marketing, we’ve never stood still for too long because innovation and disruption has always allowed us to compete against bigger brands with substantially bigger resources. This willingness to disrupt not only makes us different, it also makes us the best choice for the consumer….and ultimately the local franchisee as well.

Competitive Advantage: “Look for a franchise that offers a business model that is so remarkable that local competitors can’t compete,” says Ron Holt, CEO and Founder of Two Maids and A Mop. “In addition to identifying a proven business model that offers a unique selling proposition, look for an internal infrastructure that provides top-notch support and a profitable business plan that will enable you to achieve a healthy bottom line. Finding a franchise opportunity that meets each of these three characteristics will help ensure long-term success.” Two Maids and A Mop offers both an owner-operator and a semi-absentee owner investment model. Its owner-operators work from their respective offices, while its semi-absentee franchise owners work from their homes.

Two Maids & A Mop Visits Silicon Valley

Two Maids GoogleplexMuch of the success generated by the Two Maids & A Mop business model is built around a strategic focus on digital marketing. We’ve built an internal team of software developers, web designers, organic SEO experts and digital media professionals that are employed to generate consumer leads in every single market. The lead generation and conversion statistics are literally eye-popping and we owe a tremendous amount of appreciation to the hard-working folks inside our home office for the great work. Our attention to the digital marketing world has always been laser focused as a result. Inside the home office, we work every day to improve the model so that even more consumer leads can be generated for our franchisees. And since almost all of our digital marketing vendors reside in Silicon Valley, we decided to bust through the front doors of big players such as Facebook and Google for face to face meetings.

Well, the plan worked and we enjoyed several hours of serious meetings with high-level executives inside both Facebook and Google headquarters. It was an amazing trip and we learned so much about the Silicon Valley culture and its expected future with digital marketing.

Two Maids & A Mop Celebrates Success At IFA 2017

Two Maids & A Mop Accepts Top Business AwardThe International Franchise Association annual conference was held this past week in Las Vegas. Business legends from various industries were in attendance to educate franchise brands on the evolving business community. Two Maids & A Mop was proud to be one of the 1,000+ brands attending the event. During the meetings, our brand was recognized as one of the top 200 franchise brands in the entire country. This is an amazing award; primarily because the selection criteria starts and ends with direct feedback from our current franchisees.

The idea to begin franchising the Two Maids & A Mop brand actually started at the IFA conference four years ago. “I learned so much during those three days of meetings and seminars”, said CEO & Founder Ron Holt.”The initial conference taught me everything from learning more about an FDD to learning how legends such as Fred DeLuca of Subway started his own franchise brand. The conference always teaches me something new that provides immediate impact for our entire franchise network”.

Everything from our Key Performance Indicators to our digital marketing strategy was born from meetings inside this business conference. It was a whirlwind of a week but the dividends will be paid out over many, many years for sure. We’re already looking forward to next year’s IFA conference!
