HUNTERSVILLE, N.C (PRWEB) August 31, 2016
AdvantaClean, the country’s leading provider of Light Environmental Services™, is expanding its presence in its home market of Charlotte, North Carolina in partnership with three experienced AdvantaClean franchisees. Lyle Nearby, Doug Bassinger and Gibbon Pender, who own locations throughout the region, took over one of the largest AdvantaClean territories that services metro-Charlotte.
Nearby and Bassinger have owned and operated Charlotte-adjacent AdvantaClean territories since 2010, with Pender signing on with the brand in 2011. Now, together, they have expanded their business to cover the Charlotte metro area. All three franchisees have extensive backgrounds in customer service and sales before they signed on with AdvantaClean. Nearby also spent nearly two decades in retail management with high-end jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. before becoming a franchisee with AdvantaClean.
“Adding the Charlotte territory to our growing network of successful franchise locations is a great opportunity to further represent the AdvantaClean brand in North Carolina,” said Nearby, owner of AdvantaClean of Union, NC. “We’re thrilled to continue to serve our hometown community, keeping homes clean, safe and healthy while giving homeowners peace of mind.”
Pender’s background was in sales and marketing, which drew him to AdvantaClean’s personalized service for clients.
“What sets AdvantaClean apart from our competitors is our focus on the customer experience,” said Pender, owner of AdvantaClean of York, SC. “I am thrilled to partner with Lyle and Doug to expand my portfolio into North Carolina and better serve the Charlotte community.”
Bassinger had previously worked in management at General Motors and at a manufacturing company in Minneapolis. But, missing his family in the Charlotte region, he jumped into business ownership with AdvantaClean when he moved back to the area.
“AdvantaClean provides critical services to the Charlotte community and beyond,” said Bassinger, owner of AdvantaClean of Iredell County, NC. “In addition to being able to extend the reach of our brand, we’re providing new jobs and opportunities in the area to others all while maintaining the same high level of service and support to our customers.”
As three established and successful AdvantaClean franchisees already operating in North and South Carolina, the decision to invest in an expansion with the company was an easy one when approached about buying the territory.
“Lyle, Gibbon and Doug are proven leaders in the AdvantaClean system,” said AdvantaClean Founder & CEO Jeff Dudan. “We’re confident that they will continue to uphold the brand’s high standards and provide stellar service in our hometown market. AdvantaClean continues to thrive in Charlotte and beyond by attracting entrepreneurial-minded professionals just like them, and they are proving that the opportunities are endless with this brand.”
As AdvantaClean continues to grow, primary operational focus remains on its franchisees. By making them as successful as possible, the brand has seen strong growth in 2016. The brand plans to add 20 new locations by the end of the year, with plans for development in markets across the country, including Arizona, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Alabama.
AdvantaClean offers single-unit territories starting at $124,800 when a franchisee finances a vehicle and equipment package, which includes working capital. It requires a minimum of $50,000 in liquid capital, and a minimum of $175,000 in net worth. Multi-unit opportunities are also available to qualified candidates who have a proven track record of building and leading businesses.
