Anago Cleaning Systems Celebrates Canadian Expansion: Opens Master Franchise in Vancouver, B.C.
POMPANO BEACH, FL, October 25, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ — A testament to the continued resilience of the $100 billion dollar commercial cleaning segment, Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), a leading commercial cleaning franchise with more than 2,400 Unit Franchisees throughout the U.S. and internationally, is pleased to welcome new Master Franchisee Ad Hanna to the system, who will open Anago of Vancouver, the brand’s first Canadian location.
The new business will be located at 3665 Kingsway #300 and will service the greater Vancouver area, including Anmore/Belcarra, Barnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Surrey, Richmond, Vancouver Island, West Vancouver and White Rock.
“We’re thrilled to introduce Anago’s unmatched cleaning services to commercial property and facility managers in the Vancouver area,” said Adam Povlitz, Executive Vice-President for Anago Cleaning Systems. “By partnering with Ad, we expect he will help spearhead growth of the brand in Canada, and to follow Anago Cleaning Systems’ fundamental philosophies as stated in the vision, mission, and values of our organization.”
A Canadian citizen and native of Lebanon Hanna spent the past 17 years of his professional career as a construction manager, traveling around Europe, North America, the Middle East and South America. However, wanting to go into business ownership, Hanna began researching opportunities that suited his business expectations and provided him future growth potential. Anago presented the ideal answer to those criteria.
As Master Franchisee for the Vancouver area, this entrepreneur will now lead the brand into new international territory. In addition to Vancouver, Anago plans to expand in Canada outside of British Columbia and into markets like Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.
Specializing in all aspects of commercial cleaning such as nightly janitorial services, floor maintenance and carpet cleaning, Anago uses innovative cleaning techniques and constantly tests new methods to improve systems. Through its SmartClean program, Anago clients receive a rotational, systematic service ensuring the highest level of cleanliness for the health of employees and clients.
Anago also touts green cleaning services to keep facilities environmentally-safe by using professional equipment, approved dispensing systems, microfiber products, and recyclable containers to eliminate bacterial transfer. Clients also enjoy a customized work schedule, 24/7 client support, log of all communications, security assurance that each uniformed professional franchise owner is bonded and insured, and work with the highest regard for confidentiality and discretion.
“Anago represents a great B2B solution in the high demand commercial cleaning segment,” said Hanna. “I chose Anago because of the quality and category-leading business structure they have developed, as well as the steadfast support offered to its Franchisees ensuring each have the tools and resources to run thriving, successful businesses. I’m looking forward to bringing that same level of care and support to Vancouver.”
The new opening highlights the growth of the commercial cleaning segment, which is a top business sector in high demand. Master Franchisees, many of whom use their strong background in sales, marketing, or business operations, have the potential to add dozens of small businesses to the local economy through its Unit Franchise program. Unit Franchisees focus on cleaning office buildings, medical facilities, manufacturing facilities, and just about any other commercial property, while Master Franchisees handle the administrative tasks, including everything from finding clients, to estimating and coordinating cleaning contracts, to billing and collections. Currently, with more than 30 Master Franchisees system-wide, Anago has proven its success and established its place at the forefront of the industry.
Since its inception in 1989, Anago has continued to build new relationships within the industry, quickly becoming one of the most recognized names in commercial cleaning. The company continues to produce new revenue streams for both Master and Unit Franchisees, positioning itself on the fast track record for growth, opening more than 400 locations in the past two years.
Anago plans to expand its Master Franchise territories into additional states around the United States including California, Illinois, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, and will be further expanding into Canadian markets like Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.
Anago Cleaning Systems is a commercial cleaning franchise system supporting over 30 Master Franchises and 2,400 Unit Franchisees in the U.S. and internationally. After years of refining procedures and creating duplicable systems created in his large commercial cleaning service, David Povlitz founded Anago in 1989 to help other entrepreneurs open their cleaning businesses.
