Frequently Asked Questions
It’s important to us that you have all the answers to the important questions as you enter this discovery process. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about our executive cleaning business franchise.
Franchising has been proven to be the safest way to business ownership. In franchising, franchisees typically purchase the rights from a corporate franchisor to own and develop an exclusive franchise territory.
Franchising allows you to take control of your time, career, finances, and future. You will be your own boss with a corporate support team of specialists to help you along. In addition, franchisors like us provide ongoing training and support and a proven business model. This is designed to give you all the tools and proven marketing systems to expand faster. You will also be jumping right into a turnkey business model, without the headache of tackling the obstacles of new business ownership to figure it out on your own.
The startup costs, which include the franchise and territory fees, office equipment, training and travel expenses, advertising, and office lease deposits, can be less than $100,000.
We will provide marketing, sales, management, and industry-specific training to help you easily build your business. We will also provide corporate marketing and advertising support using search engine optimization (SEO), pay per click (PPC) advertising, blogs, and social media marketing (SMM).
To help you in the first year of starting your business, you pay NO royalties for the first six months. Starting the seventh month, you pay just a 5% royalty on all gross revenues.
No. We are looking for sales executive management professionals, and don’t expect you to know anything about this industry. We will teach you all that you need to know to be successful at growing and running our franchise model in the commercial cleaning industry.

A successful All Pro franchisee has excellent outside B2B sales and management skills, and is willing to work in a team environment and follow a proven business system.
Because you will not need any special equipment, supplies, or vehicles, you can build a large and scalable business with just a few employees and a small office suite.
Yes. At the appropriate time during your discovery process, we will set up calls with some of our franchisees so you may discuss anything you wish about the All Pro Cleaning Systems business.
Our franchise agreements are for an initial term of 10 years that can be renewed for additional terms of 10 years each.
All Pro Cleaning Systems offers some of the largest exclusive territories in all of franchising — often an entire metropolitan area ranging between 1-3 million people.
Because of our “low overhead” model, depending on how quickly you can attend training, you could be open within 30 days.
You will be calling on professionals who are in charge of the cleaning services for their buildings, and signing annual contracts with them. You will work with your marketing team to help set customer appointments, and also meet with potential Affiliates (independent cleaning companies) who will ultimately provide the cleaning services.
Yes. With a diverse set of responsibilities, ranging from sales to internal administrative duties, this is a very good franchise for a couple.
