360clean has launched a Veteran Initiative that focuses on assisting veterans financially in starting their own business. The initiative focuses on both the 360clean unit franchise and area developer opportunity.
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
360clean, the fast-growing specialized janitorial franchise best known for its specialization in cleaning medical offices and being ranked in the 2012 Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, desires to honor and assist veterans through their Veteran Franchise Program.
The program will offer Veterans, interested in a Unit Franchise, a discount on the franchise fee and the company will provide a certain amount of revenue for the veterans business during the first year at no additional expense. For veterans interested in the360clean Area Developer opportunity, which is an executive type business model, there will be a discount for the Area Developer fee.
"Veterans are a unique breed of people. Most of us join the military at a very young age, with little knowledge of the world around us. We mature throughout our service to the nation, and the person that comes out of that experience is a different person-motivated, confident and innovative-ready to lead and ready to serve. These types of individuals are the perfect candidates for 360clean and I look forward to working closely with our veterans to help develop their business and ensure their next mission in life is a success," said Teri Bradshaw, Director of Operations and a US Army Veteran.
360clean established itself as a franchise in 2008 just as the economy began to show signs of vulnerability. 360clean persevered and in 2009 began to expand outside of their home state of South Carolina. Currently, 360clean is now providing its hygienic janitorial service in 12 states. Monthly janitorial contract sales have grown 688% since December 31, 2008 (3 year period calculation). With all of this – 360clean has recognized that some of their top performing franchisees are veterans.
"It's important to 360clean that we provide veterans an extra benefit and assistance in owning their own business," said Barry Bodiford, Founder & CEO. "It's the very minimum we can do for this special group of people who have sacrificed for our freedom to live the American dream."
360clean is a rapidly growing franchised commercial cleaning service based in Charleston, S.C. Through its expanding network of independently owned cleaning businesses, 360clean is establishing itself as one of the nation’s most affordable business opportunities for eager entrepreneurs. Using a two-pronged approach to growth, including area development and single business franchises, 360clean is broadening its reach throughout the Southeast U.S. and beyond. 360clean was founded by Barry Bodiford, who is now its CEO.
