Keeping Costs Down While Offering You More
As you compare MaidPro with the typical house cleaning franchise—and other industries—you'll start to notice a few things. Our fees are usually lower. We tend to do more with less. We get creative vs. just spend a bunch of money. In short, we offer you more for each of your dollars.
MaidPro vs. Other Cleaning Franchises and Industries*
* Aggregated using industry FDD’s
We compared other cleaning franchises and felt they were less personal, offered smaller territories, and found their costs weren't as competitive.

How Much to Start Your Own Franchise
We understand there's many ways to start a business. Everyone is different, whether it's their experience level, their goals, or their finances. We're interested in individuals with good sense, a great work ethic, and ambition. It does take a real financial investment to start a franchise, and we're happy to work with you—whether a first-time owner or a seasoned pro—to find a solution that fits your goals.
*These figures are taken from MaidPro’s FDD Item 19 issued 3/31/17. These figures are based upon the performance of 151 franchises operated by 115 franchisees (out of 202 franchises operated by 152 franchisees) which were in operation for a minimum of 18 months as of December 1, 2016, and had a minimum of 20,000 Qualified Households. There is no assurance you will do as well. See our FDD for important assumptions and qualifiers relating to these figures.

Where Your Initial Investment Goes
There's often confusion about where all that upfront money will go. Many people think the bulk of their investment is paid directly to the franchisor. Not with MaidPro. This MaidPro inspired chart breaks down your initial investment among the various expenses you'll having during your first three months in business.
This chart shows an estimated breakdown of the average initial costs for a Enterprise Model. Details are listed in Item 7 of the MaidPro FDD issued 3/31/17.
Sources for Your Investment
Your investment capital doesn't have to come from a single source. We can guide you through different funding opportunities, including financial assistance from us. These are the most commons funding sources our owners have used for their initial investment.
Cash & Savings
Over half of the individuals that join MaidPro use cash and savings to cover their start-up investment. Some sell a few stocks or liquidate CD's. Others get help from family members. This is the most simple source for investments.
10-20% of new MaidPro owners use an IRS program to rollover some of all of their 401k funds for business start-up financing, without triggering taxes or early-distribution penalties.
Many new owners obtain loans to support their initial start-up investment. Our staff can help you with securing SBA loans or we may even be able to provide some direct financing for qualified franchisees.
We invested some of our retirement savings and felt with the help of the MaidPro team, we could succeed.

Reduced Cost Programs
MaidPro offers a compelling incentive for those who have served our country and those who have already built an established home cleaning business.
Current Cleaning Business Owner Discount
MaidPro offers qualified cleaning business owners the opportunity to convert their business into a MaidPro franchise at no cost. Current cleaning business owners are not required to pay the up-front franchise fee or royalties on their existing customers for the life of their franchise.
MaidPro offers discounted franchise packages valued at $15,000 for U.S. and Canadian veterans, making it easier than ever for former service men and women to join the MaidPro family and own and operate their own home cleaning franchise. The package includes: $3000 discount on the initial franchise fee; $100 invoice credit each month for the life of the ten-year agreement; direct financing or financial assistance enabling veterans to start with little up front capital.
After retiring from the U.S. Air Force, we were certain owning a franchise was right for us and MaidPro was the total package.
