Who is Anago?

Why should I purchase a franchise instead of a conventional business?

When you decide to own your own business, you have three options: Start A Business From Scratch, Buy An Existing Business, or Buy A Franchise. In most cases option #1 and #2 can be extremely dangerous for the inexperienced and require a large outlay of cash. Starting a business from scratch or buying someone’s business also has a high degree of risk associated with them. Option #3 Buying a franchise...gives you that “peace of mind” in “What you see is...What you get”; there are “no surprises” down the road.

One of the advantages Anago Franchising has to offer is: You can judge your potential success by what people like yourself are earning within our franchise system. An Anago franchise offers you an “even more unique opportunity”. You can start part time and grow into a full time business, or you can begin immediately as a full time business.

Who are your franchisees?

Some have extensive cleaning backgrounds and have chosen Anago as a way to expand their knowledge and business. Some have dreams of building a family business, while others come to us with no past cleaning history but have an open mind to learn the industry the Anago way while developing their own business.

Why should I choose an Anago Commercial Cleaning Franchise?

You should choose an Anago commercial cleaning franchise when you are certain Anago offers you the best deal. Considering everything that goes into our franchise program: local support, low royalty and franchise fees, discounts on equipment/chemicals, unlimited income potential, account expansion opportunities, and so much more we believe Anago is your best option! We know you will see the many benefits of choosing Anago over other franchising opportunities.

If I purchase an Anago Franchise can I keep my day job?

Most definitely! Many of our franchisees have kept their regular jobs by choosing our small to mid-level programs. Some have had a spouse or family member keep their job while the other started full time with his new Anago franchise commercial cleaning business. That’s one of the beauties of owning a commercial cleaning franchise; you can use it to supplement your current income and/or work towards full time self employment.

What kind of experience do I need?

No previous experience is necessary. Our orientation program will cover everything you need to be successful. It is especially suited for people who have no experience in running a business. Of course, if you already have some business experience in areas such as sales, management, or operations, you can use these skills to help build your new Anago commercial cleaning franchise.

What type of services does Anago offer?

Anago offers daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning services with set or custom cleaning specifications and one-time jobs including vinyl, ceramic, concrete, auto scrubbing, construction cleans, window cleaning, and much more. Best of all, we can custom tailor a plan to fit any potential client’s budget and requirements.

Who uses our services?

Anago cleaning clients include many well known companies. We provide our services to a variety of industries and facilities, providing cleaning services and janitorial maintenance for offices, auto dealerships, schools, daycare centers, retail stores, places of worship, medical and health care facilities and the list goes on. Companies such as Cintas, ITT, WLWT-5, The BMW Store, GE Credit Union, Outback Steakhouses, etc. all use Anago to provide a clean work environment.

Will I get any manuals?

Yes, you will receive manuals on everything from hiring, setting up bank accounts, how to establish a business corporation, how to clean a building, bidding and even sales tools. Being an Anago franchisee means you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

What about financing?

We offer guaranteed financing. All you need to start is a modest down payment and you can finance the balance of your franchise fee. With the various franchise programs starting as low as $2,425 down, Anago puts the dream of business ownership within your reach. Don’t be fooled by companies offering lower down payments. The only one who benefits is them as you are immediately in the “hole” owing them money. Wouldn’t you rather earn money than owe money after doing a month’s worth of hard work?

Do I need to rent office space or buy a truck?

No, we take care of virtually all of the clerical duties your franchise business requires. This is an ideal home-based opportunity which means there’s no need to rent additional office space. Use a home office to organize your paperwork and your regular vehicle since your cleaning equipment will fit in the trunk. As you grow you will find that you will leave different items behind at accounts while transporting things like a back pack vacuum and your chemicals as you move from account to account.

How do I expand my business as an Anago franchisee?

The options are endless. If you have a knack for sales we will show you our proven method of securing new cleaning contracts. If sales isn’t your ‘cup of tea’ then let our sales force line up the contracts for you and just pay us commission for bringing the business to you. Either way, the choice is yours. You decide whether to accept or decline any new contracts presented to you. It’s your decision whether your business will grow and expand by accepting new contracts. Most importantly, you can expand rapidly with $0 down by adding additional accounts after your initial business package is fulfilled.
