Cleanliness is next to Godliness. While the lines are truly old, they never seem to be out of context, no matter which century we are living in. We all know the importance of keeping our immediate surroundings as well as the planet clean. And the current pandemic has just reinforced the notions and importance of being squeaky clean.
However, it is not always easy to maintain a strict cleaning regime, considering the busy lives we are living. Over-worked Supermoms, along with their family do maintain a good level of cleanliness, but it never hurts to have some experienced helping hand. This is where Maid Brigade steps-in in their lives.
Maid Brigade is a residential maid service franchise with locations across the U.S., Canada, and internationally. Its service provides time-saving, healthy cleanings to busy families and individuals. At the same time, it creates job opportunities where its team members are a valued part of every location.
The executive team at Maid Brigade is comprised of Don Hay, Founder and Owner; Bart Puett, Co-Owner; and Raychel Sullins, President. With over a century of industry experience between them, they provide stability and continuity of knowledge to the organization. With that said, the leadership favors innovation and advances, so year over year, Maid Brigade franchisees have benefitted from improvements to support and grow their businesses.
Through a series of questions and answers, Raychel Sullins explains how they go about delighting their customers, employees, and franchisees.
