Meet Our Franchisee: Matt Renfro

Meet Our Franchisee: Matt Renfro

Matt Renfro is trading over a decade of experience in the financial services industry for a new venture into small business ownership. The Ohio native worked for several banks in the Cleveland/Akron, OH area, and after recently receiving his MBA, he decided to look for a way to have more control of his career.

“For the past two years I have been exploring different business options. I worked with a franchise broker and looked at about 25 different options in various industries before landing on The Cleaning Authority. I wanted to find a business that would let me control my own destiny and also give people in my community a better quality of life,” Matt said.

Matt chose The Cleaning Authority because he liked the idea of having a business where he gives back time to his clients. He also felt that the brand’s leadership was impressive.

Outside of his new business, Matt works to spread expertise about entrepreneurship to students at Lake Erie College through the Learning about Business Program. “This is a great way for me to take what I am learning about business ownership and give back to younger professionals who are looking for direction and guidance in their future careers.” Matt also serves on The Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Lake County.

Matt is very close to his family, comprised of his wife and two sons, and they have a very large extended family on his wife’s side from Croatia. “At the end of the day, all of our work is for them,” he said.
