Meet our Franchisee: Chris Morris

Chris Morris joins The Cleaning Authority after over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. Through extensive experience in the corporate world, Morris realized his desire to become a business owner.

He worked with a franchise consultant to identify industries that would match his strengths. “The cleaning industry wasn’t on my radar, but I talked with a consultant and based on the list of criteria, cleaning was a natural fit for my strengths and seemed to be the best financial investment,” Chris said.

Chris was attracted to the brand’s structure, methodology, and support for the success of its franchisees. He also appreciated that The Cleaning Authority provides a roadmap for employees to excel and advance their careers.

After going through the process of becoming a franchisee, Chris feels his initial perception of franchising has changed. “I see that the business model of a franchise is beneficial because it allows entrepreneurs to choose a concept that aligns with his or her values without reinventing the wheel,” he said.

Outside of this business venture, Chris and his wife started Western Connecticut Youth Sports in 2012. The organization provides kids with a non-threatening and hands-on way to develop skills in a non-competitive manner. “We have 150 kids between second and seventh grade in the program and plan to continue developing it,” Chris said.

By opening The Cleaning Authority in Danbury, Morris is looking forward to providing not only high-quality residential housecleaning to the community, but also creating jobs for others in the area.
