industry and proven business systems that have been developed to
provide you with a competitive advantage over other competitors in
the market. You will be granted an exclusive territory to operate

What experience is required?
MOLLY MAID Franchise Owners come from varied backgrounds and
have a range of business skills, however, the biggest factors that
will help you achieve personal and financial success are strong
people skills, a good work ethic, dedication and the principles of
the MOLLY MAID system.
What training is provided?
All MOLLY MAID Franchise Owners undergo a comprehensive 1-week
initial training program at the Support Office in Oakville,
Ontario. During this week you will learn the necessary systems and

Can I operate the business on a part-time basis?

Do I require an office or can I operate from home?
If you are starting a Franchise in a new territory, it will be
more cost effective for you to operate from your home. However,
when your customer base grows, or if you are buying an established
Franchise with a large customer base, you will find it more
practical to have an office outside of your home.
How much of an initial investment is required?
If you are purchasing an open territory the Franchise Fee is
$19,000. This fee includes introductory advertising, administrative
supplies, cleaning equipment and supplies necessary to start your
first team and our proprietary business management software
program. You will also need a minimum of approximately $20,000 in
working capital to cover such items as vehicle deposits, insurance,
miscellaneous start-up expenses and equipment and supplies for the
start of your second team. If you are purchasing an established MOLLY MAID Franchise the purchase
price is determined by the existing Franchise Owner and is based on
the sales being achieved in the business. You should expect to pay
upwards of $100,000 for an established MOLLY MAID franchise.
Will I have to pay a royalty?
Yes, the royalty for a MOLLY MAID Franchise is 6% of gross
revenue. With this you are gaining access to a proven business
system, an exceptional brand and trademark and a sustainable
competitive advantage that consumers trust.
How long does it take to become a MOLLY MAID Franchise
MOLLY MAID will take as much time as required to ensure that you
are making a sound investment decision. On average, however, it
takes new Franchise Owners between 1 and 3 months from the first
inquiry to the business start-up.
How big is the cleaning industry?
The residential cleaning industry in Canada is worth over $3.6
Billion. The demand for residential cleaning service has never been
higher. Recent statistics reveal that working mothers spend as much
as 2.2 hours each day on household chores in addition to their
hours of employment.* These stats are not changing - in fact, the
number of dual-income families in Canada is on the rise. You can
easily see why timesaving services such as residential cleaning
will continue to grow at a phenomenal rate. (*Source: Statistics
What is your target market?
The MOLLY MAID target audience are dual-income families with a
combined household income of over $70,000. Generally they range in
age from 30-65. Contrast these stats to those of baby boomers who
are aged 40-60, have more disposable income than any other segment
and represent about one third of the Canadian population. We cater
to a large, lucrative customer base with lots of long term growth
