As the government begins to ease stay-at-home orders, many are wondering what to do next. In the wake of COVID-19, thousands have been left jobless or with reduced paychecks. MaidPro franchise announces new discounts to help frontline workers and those recently unemployed become business owners.
These discounts, valued at $15,000, will work to help first responders, doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers to purchase their own franchise business. MaidPro also offers financing and other financial assistance to those who do not qualify for the discount.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 33 million Americans have filed for unemployment over the past six weeks. Forbes has published this week that 42% of all COVID-19 job losses will be permanent, leaving approximately 14 million people without pay.
MaidPro is still continuing to welcome new franchise owners to their system as many are now turning to the franchise industry for a new way to supplement their income and gain control over their futures.
Not all franchises are built the same; there are a few industries considered recession-resistant and have continued to thrive despite the pandemic. More specifically, the home cleaning industry (including MaidPro) has been deemed essential in many areas around the United States, and thus the businesses were not forced to shut down.
“While home cleaning may not be the sexiest business around, it is recession resistant and a service that will remain in demand,” says MaidPro CEO Mark Kushinsky. “Owning a franchise is a great way to have more control over your financial future. We are so thankful for those who are working to battle this virus and we hope to be of help to those looking for a new career or lifestyle.”
