Mother of Four Gains Financial Freedom Through Business Ownership
Although Maid Right, a leading residential cleaning company, has only been franchising for the past three years, it has proven itself a prime opportunity for franchisees.
Grace Rhodes, a Maid Right unit franchisee based out of Roswell, Ga., started her own business with the growing brand in 2014 and has seen great success by exceeding customer expectations on her visits.
As a home-based business, Maid Right gives entrepreneurs the freedom to establish their own schedule and determine how fast their business grows. To support newly established franchisees, Maid Right provides a start-up package including clients, equipment, education on cleaning standards, and the opportunity to build a sustainable business in the community.
“I first learned about Maid Right at a job fair I attended in hopes of finding a new opportunity,” Rhodes said. “I wasn’t looking into franchising, but once I learned about the concept and what it can offer to the community, I was instantly interested.”
Rhodes signed on as a franchisee two years ago, and since starting with the brand, she has been able to eliminate personal debt and put two of her children in college.
“With Maid Right, I created my income independently as an entrepreneur; I created a name for myself,” Rhodes said. “As a business owner, I’m able to focus and exercise my different talents while having a schedule that works for me and my four children.”
Maid Right’s home-based business opportunity lets individuals start a business for themselves where the training, support and the client base are provided. For prospective business owners, the growth potential is nearly limitless. As a franchisee, Rhodes has also been able to create job opportunities for others in her community.
“I’ve been able to create livable wages for four other families and create new relationships in the community,” Rhodes said. “Over the summer months, I had school educators who supplemented their seasonal teaching jobs by working with me. I made a difference and that makes me feel proud of what I have accomplished.”
Through franchisees such as Rhodes, Maid Right ended 2014 with 35 markets across the United States and Canada.
“I’m constantly meeting people and gaining knowledge, but most importantly, I’m providing a quality of life,” Rhodes said. “I’m helping myself by helping others.”
