Imagine opening your own business and finding that you are in better shape, both in mind and body, than you were when working in hard manual labor. That is exactly the experience of this month’s Franchise Owner Spotlight, Dee Smith, with Corvus of Lexington. Clint Smith, Regional Director of the Lexington market, wanted to feature this Franchisee for the month of November.
Mr. Smith has been with Corvus Janitorial for over ten years, having opened his business in August of 2013. He said he had his doubts when he signed up to open his franchise. He had heard some negative comments about janitorial franchises in the past, but after getting to know the Corvus staff, he felt much better about his decision. Mr. Smith likes the family atmosphere of the company and notes that, “not everything is perfect, but neither are family relationships.”
Mr. Smith enjoys being his own boss in an industry and company that has a lot of potential for growth. He is one of the top ten high-capacity Franchise Owners in his market and finds one of his favorite parts of the business is building relationships, especially with his customers. He also appreciates that this isn’t a typical nine-to-five position and it’s not as physically demanding as his previous jobs.
Mr. Smith’s approach to business and his success in the Corvus Janitorial Franchise System exemplify the principle of “work smarter, not harder.” It’s evident that he has harnessed these principles to create a thriving business that not only benefits him but also contributes to the Corvus rand as a whole. Thank for being such an excellent partner and outstanding representative of the Corvus brand, Mr. Smith!
