The Maids of Ashburn Honored as Franchise of the Year
The Maids International, corporate office of The Maids franchise network, recognized The Maids of Ashburn in Sterling, Virginia, owned by Mark Gilbert as Franchise of the Year, the company’s highest honor, during its recent Annual Growth Summit in Omaha, Neb.
The Franchise of the Year recognizes the combined efforts of the owners, managers and every team member, in achieving excellence in all facets of operating a successful The Maids franchise. Factors in the selection include not only revenue growth and profit, but also quality of service, professional image, working environment and morale of the workforce.
Gilbert is grateful for being honored as Franchise of the Year. “I was honored. It surprised me. I felt there are a lot of people that deserve this award so to be chosen was an honor.”
Gilbert has been operating his franchise for 15 years, building the business from the ground level. To Gilbert, the Franchise of the Year Award was an accumulation of many years of hard work and dedication to move the business forward. It wasn’t just one year that clinched the award for him; it’s the sum of the parts that Mark gives a nod to when sharing his formula for success.
“Mark has a remarkable enthusiasm for the business,” said Colin Bishop, president and CEO of The Maids International. “He puts customers first and has created an office culture that retains great staff. We are fortunate to have him as a leader in our franchise network.”
