Greg and Ola Treco have worked together for decades. The couple spent the
first 15 years of their marriage living in the Bahamas, both teaching
in the public school system. They also had a franchise business in the
home appliance (Whirlpool, Electrolux, Samsung), restaurant, and retail
industries. They then joined a company and became general managers in
education, accounting, and management. At that company, they worked in
the same office together for 12 years.
“After working together for over 20 years, we learned it is important
not to go to bed angry. In professional conflict resolution, it is important
to make sure that you’re listening and communicating and understand
that communication is a two way street,” Ola said.
The Trecos found out about The Cleaning Authority as customers and actually
decided to franchise with them based off of the strong customer relationship.
“We were looking for something to call our own and were impressed
with how quickly the process went with The Cleaning Authority,”
Ola said. “Throughout the process, we became sure that this was
the best brand for us. We never actually thought we would be interested
in residential cleaning, but we found that the brand’s infrastructure
had depth and was supportive. It is a comfort to know that everyone on
the corporate team is there for us, follows through and gives us input
to make us successful.”
Their son-in-law will be playing a key role in the business as soon as
it opens and will transition into more of a leadership role as they get
established. The Trecos are excited to see their business grow and would
like to turn it over to their children at some point.
