At these lower franchise fees, it’s no wonder that franchising in the cleaning industry is so widespread. But you don’t want to invest in something just because it’s low cost. Let’s look at some trends in the industry to support owning a cleaning company.
1. It’s a growing, recession-proof industry.
At the height of the pandemic, every industry took a hit. These industries are now booming on the back end of the global catastrophe. With cleanliness at the forefront of many minds, the cleaning industry is one such category.
In 2020, commercial cleaning franchise powerhouse Jan-Pro saw a five hundred percent increase in service requests and had a record year. Potential franchise owners looking to become business owners in a growing industry that stormed the worst pandemic in over 100 years would be wise to consider a cleaning franchise.
2. Increase in the age of the population
Pandemic aside, people are living longer on average. And that’s a good thing all around! But at a certain point, those living into their 70s, 80s, 90s, and beyond start to outsource their cleaning duties to others. With life expectancy increasing every year, small business
franchise opportunities in the cleaning industry are growing all over the country.
3. Cleaning and janitorial franchises are going mobile
One of the biggest roadblocks in the franchise system can be paying for a brick-and-mortar location outside of the franchise fees. But new trends in the cleaning industry are businesses that run entirely from remote. You can save a lot of money on your initial investment and still get the support benefits that come with investing in a franchise.
