Molly Maid Franchise Overview 2024

Molly Maid franchise owners serve customers in more than 460 locations across North America. When it comes to starting a cleaning business, franchise owners looking to be their own boss have the support and resources to pursue their dream of business ownership in a growing industry.

In addition to our best-in-class services, Molly Maid is proud to fund and assist the Ms. Molly Foundation, which supports domestic violence agencies and shelters across the country.

Molly Maid Franchise

Molly Maid is proud to be a part of Neighborly, the world’s largest home services franchise with 19 brands and more than 5,000 locations focused on repairing, maintaining, and enhancing properties. Utilizing decades of experience and scale through the Neighborly Hub, this multi-brand portfolio provides our franchise owners with distinct advantages like improved networking opportunities and customer referrals between brands in the same local market, ultimately creating value for franchise owners and customers alike.

The Neighborly Done Right Promise™ is a core component of putting customer service first by taking the stress out of home maintenance, having pride in the work that gets done, and promising to make things right. Additionally, the culture across the entire family of brands is embodied by the Neighborly Code of Values, which emphasizes the importance of fostering a set of ideals that guide the organization. These elements, while small to some, set Neighborly and Molly Maid franchise owners apart from the competition.
