Vanguard Cleaning Systems provides commercial cleaning services to diverse locations such as office buildings, business venues and educational settings. Vanguard offers janitorial franchises to entrepreneurs interested in this fast-growing sector. We normally do not write about companies that require an initial cash investment, but we think the commercial cleaning industry presents a lower risk if you acquire a franchise than if you start out as an independent contractor. If you are interested in this opportunity but are unsure if it is the right for you, you may wish to work for a current Vanguard franchise and get some first-hand experience before you decide to acquire your own. You can contact your regional Vanguard office to find out which franchises are currently hiring employees. Vanguard’s franchise opportunity may be well suited to moms and others who need to be home during the day because most cleaning contracts are serviced at night after normal business hours.
Vanguard’s Janitorial Franchise plans range in cost from $8,800 with a $3,300 down payment to $20,500 with a $15,000 down payment. These fees may vary according to region. You will also pay ongoing fees to cover support costs and other expenses associated with your franchise. Take the time to understand all fees beforehand. If possible, purchase your franchise outright rather than finance it through Vanguard, which charges a relatively high interest rate. Franchise agreements last ten years and are renewable. Since cleaning contracts are serviced in the evenings, Vanguard does not require a full-time commitment. No absentee ownership is permitted.
Each Vanguard franchise has its own variables related to service contract revenues and franchise expenses. As with any small business, your compensation will be affected by these variables. If you are not familiar with small-business bookkeeping and finances, be sure to seek guidance from an accounting professional before and during your franchise endeavor.
