It’s an exciting time to be starting a business in Richmond. The city has exploded in recent years, and MacGregor Gould knows the city very well. I am very confident he will be a great addition to the Stratus Building Solutions team. - Afshin Cangarlu
RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) November 04, 2019
Stratus Building Solutions, the nation's leading green commercial cleaning and janitorial services franchise, has announce d that MacGregor Gould is the owner of the newest Master Franchise location in Richmond, Virginia. This is an important development for the area because the demand for green cleaning janitorial services has reached a near fever pitch as companies, schools, daycares, religious centers, gyms and others seek out healthier alternatives when cleaning their work environments. It’s also an important development for Stratus Building Solutions, which has been growing in size and stature since its founding in 2006.
Gould says that he is excited to get to work finding franchisees for the Greater Richmond area including the Tri-Cities and 13 surrounding counties. “My wife owns her own business, and I lived vicariously through her watching her hard work pay off doing what she loves,” Gould says. Prior to becoming a master franchisor, Gould spent most of his career as an executive at Anthem. “I was very well compensated and enjoyed my job, but never once did I wake up and excitedly say to myself, ‘Let’s go adjudicate some claims,’” Gould says.
Gould started working with The Entrepreneur’s Source, North America’s leading career transition organization, and learned about Stratus Building Solutions and had been largely unaware of the concept of a master franchisor — that he could sell franchises to individuals and, in a sense, take on the role of both franchisor and franchisee. As Gould notes, all his franchisees need to do is clean and provide stellar customer service. He provides the marketing, accounting and other administrative services for his franchisees.
“That whole concept was appealing,” Gould says. “I also liked that the cleaning industry is largely a recession-proof industry.” He says that he recognizes the cleaning industry can ebb and flow like any other, and while businesses may cut back on cleaning, they tend to not stop altogether. “If you’re a business owner who wants recurring revenue, at the end of the day, somebody is going to be cleaning the bathrooms,” Gould says.
“We are thrilled to have MacGregor joining the Stratus team as a franchisee,” says Afshin Cangarlu, Stratus Building Solutions’ CEO. “It’s an exciting time to be starting a business in Richmond. The city has exploded in recent years, and MacGregor knows the city very well. I am very confident he will be a great addition to our team.”
