From Medical Equipment Sales to Franchise Owner, Texas Man Finds Success in Cleaning Industry

After selling medical equipment for 15 years, Fort Worth, Texas resident Ted Proctor decided Two Maids & A Mop would be a good fit for his vision of starting a business.

    BIRMINGHAM, AL, February 28, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fort Worth, Texas resident Ted Proctor has known for the last seven years that he wanted to start his own business. After selling medical equipment for 15 years, he decided to start a business from the ground up, but unproven business models caused major struggles. Ted then shifted his focus to franchise ownership, meeting with a broker to find a franchise that would be a good fit for his vision of starting a business.

After investigating several opportunities and evaluating his options, Ted decided that Two Maids & A Mop was the best fit for him. After 15 years in the medical field, he found that an entirely new endeavor was the most appealing, and he was drawn to several unique facets of the Two Maids business model.

"I was looking for a differentiator that I could sell, and I found that in Two Maids," says Ted. "The Pay for Performance plan stood out to me for how it promotes communication that allows for exceeding of customer expectations. Using this plan keeps customers' best interests in the forefront which leads to profitability."

The "Pay for Performance" plan is a proprietary formula in which employee wages are directly determined by customer feedback, and franchise owners have exclusive rights to replicate this in their operations. The franchise owners also reap the benefits of the innovative marketing approach that Two Maids executives have developed, focusing heavily on digital arenas, social media and organic reach, which allows franchise owners to quickly control a significant amount of their local market share.

Ted opened the Fort Worth location in February 2015 and is now in the early stages of opening a second Texas location. He is an "owner-operator" of his current location and will keep the same role in the second location. As "owner-operator," Ted is directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the business to ensure it runs effectively. Two Maids also offers an "absentee owner" option where individuals provide the monetary investment while the day-to-day franchise operations are handled by a manager fully vetted and recommended by Two Maids executives.

"Two Maids has been a great investment for me, and the business model created by Ron is definitely set up for owners to succeed." says Proctor. "Two Maids gives me the opportunity to be in control of my own success, with my income being directly influenced by how much work I put in."

Two Maids & A Mop is the nation's second fastest growing cleaning company and recently landed on Inc. Magazine's list of 10 Franchises That Swept the Nation in 2015, as well as earning a spot on Inc. Magazine's 2015 list of 5,000 fastest growing private companies in America for the third consecutive year.
