ABOUT THE MAIDS

Call 1-800-The-Maids

A Tradition of Growth and Innovation

The Maids dates back to 1979 when Daniel J. Bishop, an entrepreneurial success by age 21 with a commercial cleaning business, founded the company in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. From the start, The Maids focused on residential deep cleaning for time-starved, busy families. After growth of the company was impressive and undeniable, Daniel Bishop began franchising one year later, and business continued to boom.

The Maids became the first residential cleaning business to focus on cleaning for health. The Maids researched environmentally preferable cleaning products and sourced state-of-the-art equipment, based on commercial cleaning practices, to ensure the same cleaner, healthier environment was achievable in the home. These advancements set a new standard for quality cleaning and revolutionized the residential cleaning industry.

Today, The Maids offers deep cleaning services in over 90 major U.S. and Canadian cities and remains one of the best franchises to open.

As a franchisee of The Maids, you’re part of a nationally recognized residential home cleaning service. We’re driven by a model of innovation, technology and efficiency, and committed to the success of each of our franchisees. That’s why The Maids remains one of the top franchises to own in communities across North America.

The Maids is at the forefront of new technology and advancements in efficiency. Our innovation includes an ergonomically tested cleaning process, safe products, cutting-edge software, and a web-based training and communications platform that allow franchisees to share best practices. Factor in our ideas about internet marketing, virtual training, national partnerships, and social media, and it’s easy to see how The Maids became one of the most recognizable, yet affordable franchises in the cleaning industry.
