The Aguinaga-Montoya family is launching a new location of The Cleaning
Authority in Dallas after a long series of living in many countries. The
father of the family, Alberto Aguinaga, was a petroleum engineer, which
made his family became accustomed to moving every few years between The
United States, Singapore, England, and Peru.
“It was a bit of a struggle moving around so much and feeling like
I never really had a home, but it was a great experience to learn about
so many international cultures,” said Sebastian Aguinaga, Alberto’s
20-year-old son who will be part of the new business.
Within the past few years, Alberto, his wife Gabriela Montoya, their daughter
and Sebastian have reestablished their family home in the U.S. in Dallas,
Texas. Once they settled in the area, the family explored various opportunities
in home care businesses. “Since I grew up in South America and the
service industry is popular there, I am familiar with residential cleaning
and thought it would be a good fit for a business opportunity,”
Gabriela said. “I like the fact that it takes away time that would
be wasted if our clients didn’t have us as a resource.”
After doing their research, they decided on The Cleaning Authority. The
family appreciated the interest The Cleaning Authority’s leadership
team had for them to become franchisees. “We noticed a big difference
between The Cleaning Authority and a lot of other brands that we researched
when looking to own a business,” Gabriela said. “The brand
has a very caring system.”
The Aguinaga-Montoya family will be running the business as a family endeavor.
Alberto will handle accounting, Gabriela will assist in day-to-day operations,
and Sebastian will do many of the estimates and client acquisition. They
are excited to embark on this venture and work together as a family.
