Leading Commercial Cleaning Franchise Expands to Southern California
Master Franchisee, Bill Sole, Fuels National Expansion and Development of Anago Cleaning Systems by Opening First Location in the Inland Empire
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— A testament to the continued success of the $100 billion dollar commercial cleaning segment, Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), a leading commercial cleaning franchise with more than 2,400 Unit Franchisees throughout the U.S. and internationally, is pleased to announce that existing Master Franchisee, Bill Sole, has purchased the newest Anago Master Franchise in the Inland Empire. The new business will be located at 517 N Mountain Ave Suite 206 Upland, CA 91786 and will service the counties of Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ontario, California also known locally as the Inland Empire.
“As we grow our presence across the United States, we’re thrilled to have Bill as a Master Franchise Owner in our system, and welcome his expansion of Anago’s incomparable cleaning services to Southern California,” Adam Povlitz, Executive Vice-President for Anago Cleaning Systems, said. “His blend of strong business acumen and years of running successful Anago Master Franchises in San Jose and Greater Oakland in the Bay Area have created the foundation to drive new business ventures in this market, while upholding Anago’s fundamental philosophies as stated in the vision, mission, and values of our organization.”
Bill Sole has been an Anago Master Franchisee for nine years having opened his first franchise in 2005 servicing the Bay Area of Northern California. Today, Sole’s commercial cleaning operation of 70 Unit Franchisees service more than 350 facilities in the Bay Area.
“My decision to open the Southern California Anago Master Franchise stems from my desire to expand further into California, as cities in this region have unlimited opportunity,” Sole said. “I look forward to developing relationships and building businesses in the Greater Inland Empire, while supporting my Franchisees through modern processes, best practices, and consistent support in the field to uphold business integrity and ensure exceptional service.”
Specializing in all aspects of commercial cleaning such as nightly janitorial services, floor maintenance and carpet cleaning, Anago uses innovative cleaning techniques and constantly tests new methods to improve systems. Through its SmartClean™ program, Anago clients receive a rotational, systematic service ensuring the highest level of cleanliness for the health of employees and clients.
Anago also touts green cleaning services to keep facilities environmentally-safe by using professional equipment, approved dispensing systems, microfiber products, and recyclable containers to eliminate bacterial transfer. Clients also enjoy a customized work schedule, 24/7 client support, log of all communications, security assurance that each uniformed professional Franchise Owner is bonded and insured and work with the highest regard for confidentiality and discretion.
The new opening highlights the growth of the commercial cleaning segment, which is a top business sector in high demand. Master Franchisees, many of whom use their strong background in sales, marketing, or business operations, have the potential to create dozens of small businesses in the local economy directly. Unit Franchisees focus on cleaning office buildings, medical facilities, manufacturing facilities, and just about any other commercial property, while Master Franchisees handle the administrative tasks, including everything from finding clients, to estimating and coordinating
cleaning contracts, to billing and collections. Currently, with more than 35 Master Franchisees system-wide, Anago has proven its success and established its place at the forefront of the industry.
“Our national success is a direct outcome of our professional integrity and our business model, which offers multiple channels for growth within the Anago system,” Povlitz said. “With our current growth in Southern California, we expect to see 25 to 30 new units open within the next two to three years bringing more than 100 jobs to the area. We’re very excited for another outstanding year of development and expansion in 2014.”
Since its inception in 1989, Anago has continued to build new relationships within the industry, quickly becoming one of the most recognized names in commercial cleaning. The company has positioned itself on the fast track record for growth, opening more than 400 Unit Franchises in the past two years.
Anago plans to expand its Master Franchise territories into additional states around the U.S. and internationally.
