Franchisee since 1986 Mobile, AL

“We flew to Omaha, Nebraska, to meet with ‘The Maids’ and tour the home office. I was very impressed with the staff there, the way things were set up there, and the way things were handled with me being a prospective buyer coming in. It affirmed my decision that that’s the one we needed to choose.”
