Meet our Franchisee: Young Kim

A casual conversation between neighbors over yardwork turned into business ownership with The Cleaning Authority for Young Kim.

Young spent the last 25 years in consumer product merchandising for various companies, focusing primarily on strategic global sourcing, brand management, and product development. “Most recently, I was the VP of Merchandising for a Housewares Wholesale company, where I initiated and executed the merchandising and product development for various retailers,” Young said. “After building a career in this sector for more than two decades, I needed a change and began looking for opportunities to try a new business venture. “

Young’s neighbor is a franchise consultant with FranNet and while chatting in the yard one day, he expressed his interest to try a new business experience. “He mentioned that he could help me investigate what kind of businesses would be a good fit for me,” Young said. “We worked together, and I learned about The Cleaning Authority’s offering and was impressed.”

During the entire research process, Young felt the team at The Cleaning Authority’s corporate office was helpful and straightforward about the hard work that goes into starting a business. He liked that this business is scalable, not outsourceable, and uses advanced technology. “I appreciated The Cleaning Authority team’s honesty about the challenges and benefits of the opportunity,” Young said. “Additionally, the brand’s philosophies align with my values. I like the emphasis on being environmentally friendly, The Cleaning Authority’s Scholarship program, and the dedication to causes like The Cleaning Authority CARES.

The Newtown and Lower Bucks communities are family oriented and the neighborhoods include many commuters to Philadelphia and New York. With the busy schedules associated with a growing family or commuter lifestyle, Young believes the professional cleaning service that The Cleaning Authority offers provides significant value for improving peoples’ quality of life in his community. He is looking forward to get to know his community better through his business.
