Expansion concept

Anago cleaning systems recognized its U.S. and Canadian Master Franchise partners during its annual seminar in Fort Worth, Texas. The seminar's highlight was the brand’s territories surpassing the previous $100M Challenge promotion to the next $300M target within five years. The Challenge focused on increasing business processes, inflationary price protections, sales and leadership recruitment and training, and franchise development.

This year, Anago inducted eight Master Franchisees into the Million-Dollar Club, each producing at least $1M in revenues, with several exceeding this target. Additionally recognized were the Multi-Million Dollar Club inductees, which included ten territories reaching $2M, seven with $3M in revenues, six with $4M, three earning $5M, one territory reaching $6M, and two with over $7M in revenues.

“The $100M Challenge promotion far exceeded expectations and has now evolved into a robust Vision 2028 initiative with a target of over $300M within the next five years,” says Adam Povlitz, president and CEO of Anago Cleaning Systems.

The program aims to support the costs for owners to focus on human resources, not just technology, to expand businesses, and inspire entrepreneurs to launch Unit Franchise operations. The financial program boosted sales rep hiring, continued sales and leadership training programs, positioned franchisees for inflationary pricing protection, and strengthened franchise development.

Anago recognized several territories trailblazing new paths in growth through 2023. To recognize those territories and to honor Anago’s late founder, the coveted “City of the Year” award has been renamed the “David R. Povlitz City of the Year Award” and is awarded to Anago of Greater Philadelphia for the fifth consecutive year, with more than $1.3M added revenue over the previous year. Anago of Nashville was honored with the Most Franchises Sold category, while Anago of Southwest Connecticut received the Highest Percent Growth award with a 99% growth increase. 

“Commercial cleaning franchise ownership is continuously on the rise in territories across the nation and into Canada due to an increased focus on meeting rising demand and positioning the company to meet that demand on all levels. The idea of small business ownership is stronger than in previous years despite global shifts in the economy. As we’ve experienced, home-based and mobile franchise businesses gained national interest as a viable and profitable venture and continue to gain momentum into 2024,” adds Povlitz.
