Maid Simple House Cleaning of Clermont, FL.
From British dream to American Dream. Sacha Swift, a British native, held many customer oriented roles in the UK, including that of owning a well-established pub. Fast-forward a few years, Sacha Swift set her sights on new challenges across the pond in Winter Garden, Florida. Swift assessed her options and decided that being her own boss, and also having flexibility for her daughters, was top priority.
When asked why Swift went the franchising route, she shared this:
“I knew that business ownership was the right path for me, I’d done it before and really enjoyed the autonomy. However, being in a different country and looking at all the options, I knew that the structure of a franchise would benefit me greatly. When I thought about what I liked to do, working with people and developing long lasting relationships was high on the list. I’ve always been proud of going above and beyond for people, and in return I’ve earned a good reputation in my jobs throughout my life.
Maid service appealed to me because it’s really more than cleaning, it’s providing a service that improves your customers’ lifestyles. People are busy, so saving them a few hours every month means allowing them to spend time doing things they enjoy, like going to their children’s sports games, or getting time to go out with friends at the weekends.”
Why did Swift choose Maid Simple, what was important?
“I wanted a franchise that had experience, something stable. Maid Simple was a good choice because it’s the sister company to Maid Brigade, which has been in business for over 30 years. When I met the staff at Discovery Day I learned that many of them had been with the company for a long time, 10+ years, so I’d be getting support from people that had helped lots of franchisees before me.
Maid Simple was also a good fit because of its investment level, it was lower than other franchises, but yet still offered support in all areas. For example, I have a sales team that takes my initial calls, this is very helpful because I spend much of my time meeting new customers face-to-face, so I wouldn’t have the ability to answer all the calls myself. I get help with things that I’m not as familiar with, such as digital marketing – which is where most of my customers have come from so far.”
Swift has been serving the Clermont, FL, area since November 2015. She successfully balances business ownership, and being an involved parent.
