360clean, the fast-growing specialized janitorial franchise, best known for its focus on hygienic cleaning in commercial environments, has earned the distinction as a Top 50 Franchise for Veterans by the World Franchising Network.
The World Franchising Network, the definitive guide to the world of franchising, selected 50 franchisors from over 300 companies. 360clean was one of only two commercial janitorial franchises selected to this list, and all selectees were identified in a feature article that was published in the June 20, 2014 issue of USA Today – Franchising Today and was made public at the International Franchise Expo in New York City on June 21, 2014.
360clean has always supported veterans, but when Teri Bradshaw, Director of Franchise Development and US Army veteran, joined the company in 2012, she made it her mission to aggressively seek out veterans to join their organization through their Boots2Buckets veteran’s initiative. "As a veteran, and wife of a veteran, I always strive to find ways to make a difference in the lives of those who have served their country with honor and distinction,” said Bradshaw. “Being a part of 360clean has given me a unique opportunity to serve, support, and empower veterans through business ownership. Throughout my civilian professional career, the small role I play in their success as 360clean franchise owners is by far the most important and rewarding position I have ever held. I am so proud to be a part of a company who recognizes the positive impact veterans can have on our organization, and to have contributed to 360clean’s inclusion in the Top 50 Franchises for Veterans."
Benefits to veterans joining 360clean include a 10% discount on the franchise fee, special financing options, and up to $1,000 in business development credits.
John Thomas, US Army Veteran and 360clean Franchise Owner in Atlanta, Georgia is happy to see so many veterans joining the organization and enjoying the benefits business ownership provides. He had this to say about 360clean, “I was recently interviewed by a research firm and they asked me if I had the chance to do it again, and [could choose] any type of franchise, what would I pick. I told them I would probably have picked 360clean sooner than I did. The support and ability to grow is something special. It’s truly amazing.”
