Shannon and Ashley are a husband and wife team eager to tackle a new chapter
in their careers. With an extensive background in human resources, they’re
looking forward to joining the franchising industry and building a new
business. The couple is opening a The Cleaning Authority franchise in
an area they know well, Cherokee County, Georgia.
The Smiths always aspired to do something on their own. “We reached
a point in our lives where we thought that if we were ever going to do
it, now was the time,” Shannon said. “We received a referral
from my financial advisor to get in touch with Leslie Kuban, a franchise
consultant who works with FranNet. She really helped us narrow our focus
by talking to us and figuring out what we were interested in pursuing.”
Shannon and Ashley’s perceptions changed a lot throughout the process.
Initially, they knew very little about franchising and had a negative
feeling about it because they didn’t understand the concept thoroughly.
“Our perceptions became positive when we learned that you’re
buying an established business with a proven system and adapting to what
they do and stand for,” They said. “Franchising is more supportive
than we had previously anticipated.”
The Cleaning Authority provided the duo with a proven platform to successfully
begin their journey and the couple is eager to start their business. The
couple said, “Our franchise is a family owned and operated business,
and we’re excited to bring The Cleaning Authority to the local community
we call home.”
