Over the past decade, the cleaning industry has grown an average of 6.6% each year, making it one of the fastest-growing occupations in the United States. Just in 2015, there were approximately 875,000 cleaning businesses employing 3.5 million people. You don’t have to look far, though, to understand the industry’s aggressive growth – janitorial services are in high demand.
Consider this: the cleaning industry is one of the most diverse industries in all of business. It can roughly be divided into residential cleaning, commercial janitorial services, laundry/dry cleaning services, and specialty cleaning. Out of all of these categories, however, janitorial services have the highest demand by far, accounting for approximately 31% of the industry’s total revenue. That’s an estimated $155 billion globally each year! But, really, it just comes down to common sense. As long as there are businesses – whether in commercial, retail, hospitality, or any sector you can think of – cleaning services will be in demand.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the commercial cleaning industry offers one of the best franchise opportunities available. Not only do they offer all of the traditional benefits of a franchise, but cleaning companies, in particular, provide outstanding growth potential and an inherent resistance against recessions. But, most importantly, they are one of the few franchise opportunities that provide just that: an opportunity.
While many industries require large, upfront investments – and, in many cases, an additional cost of maintaining a brick and mortar location – the cleaning industry has the fewest barriers when it comes to not only starting your business but growing it as well. In fact, you likely already have everything you need to start a business with Anago Cleaning Systems. That means you could start as early as today! See for yourself—here’s just how easy it is to start an Anago franchise.
#1. An Initial Down Payment
Anago Cleaning Systems provides the opportunity to start your business with only a small down payment of $2,425. In fact, you have the option to pay in full or finance it with regular payments as you complete your training and start taking on clients.
#2. Your Own Vehicle
Whether you own a sedan, truck, van, or SUV, as long as you have your own reliable transportation that can carry your supplies, you have the right type of vehicle. Owning or renting a specific make or model of vehicle is never required.
#3. An Entrepreneurial Spirit
One of the major benefits of owning a franchise, of course, is purchasing a proven system.

From day one, we provide in-depth training on not only all matters of cleaning but also starting and running your business.
