Meet our Franchisee: Mary and Brian Whitehurst

Mary and Brian Whitehurst recently opened a hometown market with The Cleaning Authority in their own hometown Dacula, Georgia to provide the community with cleaning services and allow their neighbors more time to spend on other priorities.

Brian worked in the franchising industry previously with The Real Estate Book, but Mary will be taking the lead with operations in the couple’s endeavor with The Cleaning Authority. “I never gave franchise ownership a thought, even though my husband was a franchisor,” Mary says. “Since we have gotten involved with The Cleaning Authority, it has been helpful that he knows the corporate structure.”

After many years spent as a stay at home mom, Mary didn’t necessarily want to jump into a business that meant more cleaning in her life. But after learning the value of investment with The Cleaning Authority, it proved to be a good fit for the Whitehursts.
