Molly Maid - Franchise

Starting a House Cleaning Business
A Polished Approach to Your Professional Independence
A home cleaning business may seem simple or ordinary. Still, when you take a closer look, you realize that homeowners across the country share a need for reliable, time-saving, trusted, and professional house cleaning services.

A home cleaning business can be a surprisingly rewarding line of work for those considering franchise business ownership. With personal time at a premium, hardworking professionals, busy couples, and active seniors are all consumers who fuel this thriving industry.

Buying a home cleaning franchise can provide you with the following advantages:

  • Dependability due to repeating business from a broad base of loyal customers
  • Flexible hours based on your lifestyle and that of your customers
  • Low overhead costs and a cash business with limited receivables

The possibility of taking on business ownership is exciting. It's a big decision, but one that can result in a lifetime of professional and personal rewards. A housecleaning franchise is a solid, necessity-based business with steady consumer demand.

What We Do
Resources for Stability, Independence, and Success
Starting a cleaning business from scratch can be daunting; the industry is competitive, and any startup business comes with some risk. When you start a cleaning business yourself, you start at zero—with minimal/limited customer base, few business relationships, and low brand awareness. You do the market research, marketing, and maybe even the mopping. With all the business development left to you, you can find yourself with little time for a personal life.

Investing in a Molly Maid franchise is different from starting alone.

We take the guesswork out of startup, marketing, and daily operations when you invest in Molly Maid. We provide you with an established business model and the tools you need to hit the ground running.

As a Molly Maid franchise owner, you get the support that can free up your time. This means you have the chance to grow professionally and achieve a better work-life balance. Molly Maid's brand recognition is a powerful driver of your business growth, not to mention the networking opportunities, vendor relationships, and other benefits you receive as a franchise owner within the Neighborly family of brands.

Why The Residential Cleaning Industry?
A Sparkling Clean Outlook
According to a recent outlook report from research company IBIS World, the forecast for the residential cleaning services industry looks promising, with increases in high-income households continuing to drive industry revenue growth.

  • Visionary and have perseverance to achieve their goals
  • Willing to work hard to achieve their version of financial security

The Value of Neighborly
A Family of Top Franchises
Molly Maid is proud to be a part of Neighborly, which is a community of independently owned and operated franchise businesses focused on repairing, maintaining, and enhancing properties. We began as Dwyer Group 40+ years ago, launching with a single home services brand. Today, we’re the world’s largest home services franchisor of 19 brands and nearly 5,000 franchises collectively serving 10 million+ customers across nine countries.

Though Neighborly is a large franchise system, our culture is close-knit with a family business atmosphere. We’ve successfully developed an effective franchise business model that works well for everyone involved, and one of the reasons why is because we encourage feedback from our franchise owners and invite them to participate in corporate-level decisions. We attribute our continued growth to this culture, and to teaching and upholding our company's values.
