How to Change Your At-Home Cleaning Business to a Franchise

Whether you’re just starting out or have been in the cleaning business for a while, franchising is another avenue you may want to explore. While owning a non-franchise business may work for you, many people will find the franchise model attractive for numerous reasons. Here, we’ll offer home-based business owners some tips on the franchise conversion process.

Determine Whether Franchising is Right for You

Before joining our franchise network, consider assessing your abilities, the company’s reach, and other factors. Franchise ownership is a good fit for many, especially those who see themselves thriving in a more corporate-oriented environment. New franchisees should be:

  • Team players who are willing to follow the franchise’s guidelines
  • Open to changes even if new methods are different from those previously used
  • Receptive to constructive criticism that, when used properly, can bring significant improvement
  • Willing to become acquainted with other local franchise owners who share a passion for and a belief in cleanliness and the Corvus brand


If you’re searching for a way to bring your home-based commercial cleaning business to a new level, becoming a franchisee is the logical next step. Call or click today to get started.

Learn About the Commercial Cleaning Industry

The commercial cleaning industry is a growing industry with great opportunity. With lots of investment pouring into the industry, as well as growing demand as a result of the Covid pandemic and many new startups joining the market, prospective commercial cleaning business owners have many opportunities to start and grow a successful janitorial business.

If you’re just getting into the janitorial services field, take some time to learn about it, both on paper and in the field. Basic education will save time and money in the future and will align your goals with the current state of the commercial cleaning industry.

Choose a Lifestyle That Works for You

Business owners consider converting their home-based businesses to franchises for various reasons. But, one key reason is that owners may want to scale to the next level and gain bigger market share. At the end of the day, buying into a commercial cleaning franchise is a choice that has to be made with your desired lifestyle in mind. Below are several questions you may want to ask yourself before converting your at-home cleaning business into a franchise:

  • Am I happy with the size of my business now or do I want to scale larger?
  • Do I have the support I need to be successful over the long-term?
  • What kind of new customers and contracts may I get by embracing a franchise?


As you are answering these questions, keep in mind that a Corvus franchisee is free to keep their existing business, too. This allows you to transition to a franchise without losing your existing business. At Corvus Janitorial Systems, we can help you answer these questions and many more.
