Meet our Franchisee: John Chase

Local entrepreneur John Chase is taking a step away from financial services to bring a much needed, high-quality cleaning service to the area he calls home. John has spent his entire career in financial services. John began working for Alliance Capital in the early 90s as an inside wholesaler, but went on to hold positions as a National Account Manager for retirement plans and eventually became a Vice President/Relationship Manager for their Financial Institutions & Advisors Division.

“In 2004, I left Alliance Capital to join Columbia Management, now Columbia Threadneedle Investments, as the Director of National Accounts, a position I held until early last year,” John said.

When John began searching for a new career path, he wanted to move away from financial services and the idea of being his own boss was very intriguing. After speaking with a career/entrepreneur coach, who brought up the idea of franchising, John knew it was something where he could use his business strengths and entrepreneurial skills.

After speaking with The Cleaning Authority’s corporate team, John immediately saw how professional and knowledgeable they were, which he admired. “Their support for all of the franchisees, through creative marketing efforts and mentorship, is something unique and wonderful,” he said.

John and his family currently work with the Hingham Food Pantry on a weekly basis collecting leftover food from local restaurants to bring to homeless shelters, so he plans to jump right into The Cleaning Authority’s Community Outreach Program, The Cleaning Authority CARES program, which conducts food drives two times a year.

John is looking forward to getting his business started. The Norwell and south shore area is a great market filled with many families, both young and old. “A cleaning service is always going to be attractive to this community,” John said. “Although there are other cleaning services in the area, I believe the attention to detail and exceptional customer service that The Cleaning Authority provides is unparalleled to the competitors. I personally have had experiences with other cleaning services that were unsatisfactory, so I believe The Cleaning Authority will do well in this area.”
