Meet the Franchisee: Raj Das

Raj Das has a diverse corporate background as an IT sales and delivery leader in the Insurance and Healthcare industries. Most recently, he was a Vice President at MassMutual Financial Group. Throughout his career, Raj has been involved in developing software, leading transformative IT projects, managing P&Ls for national territories and building executive relationships with Fortune 500 leaders. He looks forward to leveraging his experience when running his own business in the future.

Much of Raj’s motivation to find a business he could open in the West Hartford area centers around building an asset for his family and creating a legacy for his son, who is a junior at South Windsor High School. “I’m hopeful that he will start helping with the business in future years,” Raj said.

Raj explored many franchise concepts and chose The Cleaning Authority for a few reasons. “First of all, the representative we worked with in the sales process was very helpful and professional, which I have come to find is a trait of the whole corporate team”, Raj said. “Additionally, after going through the process, it was clear that both the franchisor and its franchisees were high caliber business people and that the brand was successful as a whole, which made me want to be a part of the company.”

Raj feels that his passions for positive customer experience, expertise in running P&Ls, and a servant leadership mindset make him a great fit for The Cleaning Authority. He feels that The Cleaning Authority’s management team and franchise model will be a good fit for his lifestyle and business goals.

Raj will be serving homes in West Hartford, Avon, Simsbury, Canton, Farmington, Bloomfield, Windsor, and Granby. He believes this area is a great place to start his business because it hosts the corporate headquarters of several Fortune 500 firms. “The area is home to many hardworking families from these corporations and they all deserve the highest quality of cleaning service, a gap that my business will fill,” Raj says.
