Meet Our Franchisees: Oscar and Daniela Palacios

Meet Our Franchisees: Oscar and Daniela Palacios

Oscar hails from Venezuela, where he worked as a commercial pilot for many years before taking a position as the Managing Director of a printing company. When he started working at that company, it had 13 employees and was competing with five major printing companies. Twenty-one years later, Oscar helped grow the company to be the No. 1 printing company in Venezuela.

Recently, Oscar felt that the economic environment in Venezuela was insecure. He moved his family to the U.S. to enjoy a better life. He moved with his wife, Daniela, and daughter, Giuliana, who are both psychologists, and his son, Oscar Jr., who was studying to be an engineer in Venezuela and will be applying to universities in Florida. The entire family will help to run the business.

Oscar and Daniela met with a franchise broker to find the right opportunity for them. Oscar wanted a business that was affordable and in the service industry — something he excels at. He liked the idea of a residential cleaning franchise because of the opportunity to work with people of different backgrounds. After looking at several franchise concepts, he was drawn to The Cleaning Authority business model, which reminded him a lot of the operations at his old job. Oscar loved that The Cleaning Authority provides sales, accounting and HR support, but he still feels in control of his business. What set The Cleaning Authority apart from the other brands was the level of support from the corporate team.

Oscar sees the opening of his business as the first step in a bigger plan. He hopes to continue to expand in Florida after getting his first location up and running.

“With my family’s help, I know this will be a big success,” he says. “We are not afraid of hard work, and we know we will get a lot of support from The Cleaning Authority.”
