Franchise Business Review
Independent Research Data Shows Franchisees Are Highly Satisfied with Their Investment in 360clean
April 2021 – 360clean was recently named a top franchise by Franchise Business Review in its report on the Top Recession-Proof Franchises for 2021.
360clean was built by a family that is focused on helping other families achieve their same dream of business ownership. 360clean has come a long way since it was founded as a part-time janitorial service company in 2005 by Barry Bodiford and Allison Bodiford, a full-time pharmaceutical industry employee at the time of the company’s beginning. When the company was incorporated in 2005, 360clean employed only a half-dozen employees and serviced 3 customers. Today, that start-up corporation is the innovative leader of the janitorial service industry and services customers in various markets throughout the United States with the goal of being nationwide in the upcoming years.
Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.
More than 31,000 franchisees representing nearly 300 franchise brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between July 2019 and February 2021. From the research, 360clean was one of just 100 franchise brands to be identified as a Top Recession-Proof Franchise award winner and be featured on the list of the best recession-proof businesses to start.
360clean’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
“From our perspective, franchisee satisfaction is one of the most important factors to consider before investing in any franchise opportunity,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Franchising has historically performed well in a recession, and for people seeking to be their own boss, the recession-proof businesses we identified this year not only have outstanding satisfaction among their owners, but we feel they hold a strong advantage to outperform their competitors in the years ahead.”
“Historically, being a part of a franchise system has proved that franchise owner/operators have performed well through a recession. Recession or not, commercial office cleaning is a necessity and would have to be a continued service for the end-customer,” said Brent Bodiford, Chief Operating Officer of 360clean. “I believe what also helps is the residual income that our franchise owners receive. In many cases, our customers need their offices cleaned daily, which in turn, these same customers need 360clean services each month. This creates a recurring revenue that our franchise owners can build on and continue to attack through any recession.”
