After more than 20 years in the Hong Kong banking industry, Jason Liang
wanted a change. Looking to move to the United States and become a business
owner, he began searching for franchise opportunities that would offer
him support in his business. “Although I do advise my clients and
companies who are running a business, I don’t really have the experience
to manage a business on my own, so I kind of feel like the safer way will
be to team up with somebody who can support me,” he said.
The Cleaning Authority stood out to him because of that strong corporate
support. Especially in moving to a new country, Jason wanted to be sure
that he would be properly prepared for business ownership.
Jason was also very keen on the green cleaning aspect of The Cleaning Authority
model. “Taking care of the earth, and not polluting it, is very
important to me, so this concept strikes me as something I can do to help
the environment to be better.”
The information systems in place at The Cleaning Authority also helped
win Jason over. “It was very impressive. I didn’t realize
a maid service could have so much technology,” he said. “I
think that with this system that we have, it will make the service that
The Cleaning Authority provides more efficient, and therefore more competitive
versus other franchises.” He believes that the systems in place
here serve as the foundation for an effective and efficient business model
and allows us to operate with greater accuracy and capability, which differentiates
The Cleaning Authority from other cleaning services.
As far as the market, Jason believes that Bergen County is the perfect
location for his business. “I think that that market, the demography,
and their proximity to New York City, which is a major job hub, is a really
good environment for this kind of business,” he said. With so many
working professionals, there is a large need for residential cleaning services.
