The Maids International
The Maids International is the corporate office of The Maids®, a premier residential cleaning franchise company, with franchise locations throughout the U.S. and in Canada. The Maids is a quality leader among the many cleaning companies in the industry, with more than 150 franchise partners serving over 90 major U.S. and Canadian cities. The Maids offices can be found in over 40 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.
In 1979, Daniel J. Bishop, a self-made entrepreneurial success before the age of 21 with his janitorial company, Bishop Building Services, founded The Maids in his hometown of Omaha, Neb. The business was one of the first professional residential cleaning services created. Bishop began franchising his concept nationally in 1980.
The Maids was the first residential cleaning service to clean for health when in 1995, they launched their Healthy Touch® Cleaning System. This system, which eliminated several traditional cleaning tools, is comprised of three components that work intrinsically together - a backpack vacuum with HEPA filtration; environmentally safe cleaning products, and a systematically engineered cleaning method. The Maids offers clients a thorough, yet efficient, home cleaning with their teams of four who work together to clean a home, each focusing on one function: vacuuming, kitchen cleaning, bathroom cleaning and dusting.
In 2001, after countless consumer research studies, The Maids unveiled its line of Additional Home Services. Services such as carpet cleaning, window washing and same-day service cleans were added under the umbrella of The Maids’ name.
The Maids International provides support and guidance to the franchise system, offering franchisees a proven operating system, a comprehensive training and support program, robust marketing assets and guidance, and a c
orporate focus on innovation.
The Maids continually ranks highly in Entrepreneur magazine’s list of Fastest-Growing Franchises, as well as the Franchise 500® list, due to their respected brand name, proven operating systems and extensive support programs.
The Maids International is a leading franchise company due to its innovation, cleaning techniques, systems and franchise support offerings.
