Judy Walker, CFE for Anago Cleaning Systems:

How has your company evolved since 1991?

In addition to our significant growth over the years, Anago has evolved into the technology leader for our industry. We perfected and implemented proprietary, cloud-based software systems to manage every aspect of the business, which enable our Master Franchise Owners to run their operation from wherever they are. We also have a proprietary mobile app used for janitorial quoting and customer service. 

What are some common misconceptions about being an Anago Master Owner?

One of the biggest misconceptions is that the Master Franchise Owner is in the cleaning business. A Master Franchise Owner is NOT in the cleaning business – their Unit Franchisees are. This is an Executive model franchise and the Master Owner is in the sales and marketing business.
Another misconception is that the Master Franchise Owner must spend time cold calling and knocking on doors for cleaning contracts. Anago has completed years of research and identified the businesses within a Master territory that contract with a cleaning service and produce higher revenue for both the Master and Unit Franchisees. These leads are pre-loaded into our proprietary cloud-based software systems for the telemarketer to call and set an appointment for the Master or his/her salesperson to bid on.

How many franchised units do you have?

Anago Cleaning Systems currently has 37 Master Franchise territories located in the U.S., Canada, and South America with over 2,400 Unit Franchisees.  Entrepreneur Magazine has recognized Anago multiple times as one of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S.

Are you available in Canada and Internationally?

Yes, we have available territories in Canada and internationally.

What are some competitive advantages of your business?

  • 12 primary revenue streams.
  • No royalty payments for the first 6 months of operation, so the Master can concentrate on building his or her business.
  • One of the lowest franchise fees in the industry.
  • 20+ page fully search engine optimized (SEO) website, specific to the territory is included in the franchise fee.
  • Technology leader in the industry – proprietary mobile app used for janitorial quoting and customer service.
  • Name brand with over 25 years of experience in the franchised commercial cleaning

What is the desired background/qualities of your ideal candidate?

Anago’s ideal Master Franchise candidate is a mid-to-senior level executive with a strong background in sales and marketing. Many of our Master Owners are former CEO’s Directors and VP’s of large, nationally recognized companies. The ideal candidate will also have the ability to recruit, direct and manage highly motivated sales personnel.

What do you hope for the future of Anago Cleaning?

Anago Cleaning Systems plans to expand substantially in the next several years, both in the U.S. and internationally. We plan to stay on the cutting edge of the latest in technological advances in our industry as well.
