Merry Maids


Partner with The Leader


If you are looking for a business opportunity with a thriving future and solid support from a trusted company, a Merry Maids cleaning franchise is for you. With more than 30 years of experience, Merry Maids is the world leader in the residential cleaning industry and was recently named #6 out of ’The Top 20 Franchises to Start’ by Forbes magazine.

A booming market

Industry experts predict demand for maid service will continue to grow at an accelerated rate as time-starved consumers continue to buy time-saving services well into the 21st century. More than 70 percent of women in the United States now work outside the home. The combination of these factors, along with Merry Maids experience and name-brand awareness, makes us the leader in the industry.

Regardless of your previous experience, our systematic approach to training, cleaning, office management and developing your customer base can give you the confidence to succeed with your own home cleaning franchise.
