A Letter from the Founder
Thank you for visiting the Cleanstart Systems franchising website.
We believe our Cleanstart Systems franchise offers an excellent opportunity to be part of a market that will only continue to grow — contract janitorial services.
Over my 32 years in this industry I’ve witnessed the ever increasing need for office cleaning, floor care, window washing and more in companies and facilities. In fact, this demand has grown wider as a result of the economy. Between the cost of pensions and mandated healthcare, it’s become more difficult for company owners to hire in-house cleaning personnel. This issue will continue to open the door for contract cleaning services now and in the future.
We believe the Cleanstart Systems business model has proven to be beyond successful, so much so that we are now looking to franchise. Right now, we have expanded into areas of our home base state of New York and envision several more Cleanstart Systems franchises throughout the state…and are also considering other locations, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
And unlike other franchises, the Cleanstart Systems opportunity does not initially require the need to rent office space — owning a vehicle that can fit cleaning equipment and supplies is all that is required.
We have prepared this website for you to learn more about this opportunity. If the idea of becoming the owner of a Cleanstart Systems franchise is appealing to you, why don’t you fill out the Preliminary Information Sheet online and return it to us? If it appears as though we would be a good ”fit” together, we will call to schedule a meeting.
I appreciate your interest in the Cleanstart Systems franchise and look forward to hearing from you soon. Should you have any questions regarding this franchise opportunity, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
About the Founder
Robert Blount had ﬁrst contact with the janitorial industry while attending college when he took on part—time work cleaning a country club. He was somehow not included on the company’s payroll for the project so he had to invoice directly. In practice, that was his ﬁrst foray into the world of being self-employed in the cleaning industry. From that ﬁrst job, he received referrals and before he knew it had more work ”than I could shake a stick at.”
Robert realized the potential of owning a cleaning service and continued to grow what he describes as a 32-year career that is ”wonderful and challenging.”
Over the past three plus decades, he has built a business that has seen consistent growth and is recognized as a one stop source for cleaning service, providing customers with comprehensive and quality janitorial skills. With several locations in New York, we are now poised to expand our Cleanstart Systems business model further by offering franchising opportunities throughout New York and other areas of the country.
