In September 2018, Stratus Building Solutions, a green commercial cleaning and janitorial services franchise, launched the Capital Maryland Master Franchise location. The new Stratus location has already gained traction with local businesses and is expected to thrive in the region surrounding our nation’s capital as the need for green cleaning janitorial services continues to grow. Stratus services facilities of all kinds, including offices, schools, daycares, religious centers, gyms and more.

Seasoned businessman and entrepreneur, Steve Turner, recently signed the Master Franchise agreement for Maryland Capital Region and has completed the necessary training to become Stratus Building Solutions’ newest Master Franchisee.

Turner has more than 25 years of experience running businesses for large, publicly-traded companies. He has worked in a wide variety of roles including general management, sales, planning and marketing. After years spent in corporate America, Turner was ready for a change. During his due diligence, Turner considered several businesses before deciding to invest in a franchise that required minimal travel so he could spend more time with his family.

Turner said he was also drawn to Stratus because of the proven business model.

“I am thrilled to be on board with Stratus. I’m no stranger to the service industry, and I know a good business opportunity when I see one,” said Turner. “Stratus’ business model is scalable, efficient and service-oriented, all of which I found appealing. I was looking for an entrepreneurial endeavor that had the potential to match my corporate income from my previous position while also allowing me to spend more time with my family. For these reasons and more, Stratus is the perfect fit for me.”

Master Franchise opportunities enable owners to operate as localized sales and support centers for Unit Franchise locations. Stratus Building Solutions strives to help entrepreneurs pursue their dreams and build a successful business. Master Franchisees work with future business owners to help them choose the specific model/investment that will best suit their lifestyle and financial goals. As a Stratus Master Franchisee, Turner will be looking for fellow entrepreneurs who are eager to learn, ready to sell, and place tremendous value on customer service.

Turner believes the key to long-term success is proper execution of the Stratus business plan. Stratus Building Solutions has a proven business model designed to set franchisees up for success. Through a continued commitment to excellence, Turner is looking forward to growing the Stratus brand throughout southern Maryland.

“We are very glad to have Steve on board with Stratus Building Solutions. Steve has an incredible passion for business and a long track record of success,” says Afshin Cangarlu, CEO of Stratus Building Solutions. “I have no doubt that he will be a tremendous asset to the Stratus Building Solutions team. He has all the qualities we look for in a Master Franchisee, and I am confident in his long-term success.”
