360clean, the fast-growing commercial janitorial franchise best known for its specialization in cleaning medical offices, has announced the company is expanding into the Tampa Bay area and has begun offering the 360clean franchise opportunity to aspiring entrepreneurs in the area.
360clean plans to open four to six franchises in Tampa in the next 12 months which could add over 100 jobs in the area, according to Barry Bodiford, the company’s CEO.
The franchise, which has 70 franchises in eight states, specializes in cleaning medical offices and other commercial offices that desire a more health focused cleaning approach.
Bodiford said Tampa, with its reputation as a health center, was the next logical point of growth for the franchise, which already has franchises open in Florida.
“It’s a low investment and low overhead business, and it’s recession resistant,” he said. “Medical offices aren’t going anywhere and commercial offices need their facilities clean. We began franchising in 2008, during the recession, and have been going strong since.”
Bodiford said he would eventually like to have 15 franchises in the Tampa Bay and surrounding area. The typical 360clean franchise has seven to fifteen employees.
Bodiford said 360clean, which was founded in 2005, offers potential business owners a low investment opportunity with a support system that provides local sales support on an ongoing basis.
He said the first hire in the Tampa area has been completed with the hiring of an Area Business Manager who will recruit future franchise owners, support the franchises and find commercial contracts to get the franchises off the ground.
Employees for the 360clean franchised business owners are usually part-time workers who also hold full-time jobs elsewhere, he said.
“It’s offering part-time employment for those who have a full-time job looking for a job two or three hours at night, which is not something you can find very easily,” he said.
360clean will officially open their Tampa office with a marketing blitz of the area the first week of August.
