Meet our Franchisee: German and Rosa Diaz

Venezuelan couple German and Rosa Diaz are pursuing a new chapter in their professional lives by opening a new The Cleaning Authority franchise in the Port Orange, FL area. The couple initially came to the United States because of the employment opportunities and the overwhelming sense of security.

After starting an IT company in Venezuela, German looked for similar qualities in companies for his next career venture, including strong relationships with clients. “The IT business is very different in the U.S. than it is in Venezuela, so I realized I wanted to start with something completely different,” he said. “I came to the U.S. in April 2016, because the quality of life here is much better than in Venezuela. Also, employment and security is better in the U.S. I knew I needed a good business and company to support me, with my family here.”

German and Rosa liked that The Cleaning Authority’s business model was already established and the corporate team helped them with customer acquisition from the get-go, which left them only having to operate the franchise. “The marketing from The Cleaning Authority’s corporate team is really good and the support is there. It’s not easy coming to a new country and starting a new company. With The Cleaning Authority, I found I could take a similar leadership role to the company I ran in Venezuela.”

The Cleaning Authority is a family business for the Diaz family, with their daughter Ana acting as manager before moving on to attend Purdue University. Since opening, German and Rosa have seen incredible success with their Port Orange, FL location and have immersed themselves in their local community. The family has enjoyed watching their consistently growing business, and look forward to what the future holds.
