Top Cleaning Services Franchises

 

Overall, the top cleaning services had a great 2016, as the biggest players, and many of the smallest, continued to improve sales. All three disaster restoration franchises in the Top 200 reported robust sales growth, and many of the smaller franchises had strong 2016 campaigns as well. Cleaning franchises continue their overall success, as only four companies in the residential and commercial cleaning categories posted year-over-year sales losses. 

Sales Growth - Disaster Restoration Franchises

Rank Company $ Millions Sales Growth
406 911 Restoration 50 25%
53 Disaster Kleenup International 2,500 11%
314 CRDN 114 7.2%
110 Paul Davis Restoration 741 6.4%
66 SERVPRO 1,796 3.4%
236 Rainbow International Restoration 215 0.8%
498 Paul Davis Emergency Services 25 -14.7%

911 Restoration and Disaster Kleenup led the disaster restoration category with 25 percent and 11 percent growth respectively. Disaster Kleenup has $2.5 billion in sales and 741 units, too, another example of a giant player that still manages to push double-digit growth. Paul Davis Emergency Services was the only franchise in the category to post a negative sales growth, with a 14.7 percent decline. 

 

Sales Growth - Home Cleaning Franchises

Rank Company $ Millions Sales Growth
343 MaidPro‌ 84 7.1%
237  The Cleaning Authority 213 7.0%
232 Molly Maid 224 3.5%
283 The Maids 147 0.0%
351 Maid Brigade 74 0.0%

All five members of the home cleaning franchise category saw increased or flat sales growth, with MaidPro and The Cleaning Authority leading the pack at 7.1 percent and 7 percent sales growth, respectively. While it sits at second on the list, The Cleaning Authority has the fewest locations of the five home cleaning franchises, which means it generates the most volume per unit.

Four companies posted losses, and Chem-Dry dropped out of the Top 200 with a 0.5 percent dip in sales.
