In 2022 many female entrepreneurs are finding new business opportunities that exceed their professional goals.
Women are opening a business at the fastest rate. According to The National Association of Business Owners, 11.6 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. Women are currently the majority owners of 38 percent of U.S. small businesses.
The cleaning industry is growing fast, at a 5.7% rate each year with 88.8% of the cleaning industry being cleaners.
The Cleaning Authority comes from a different background and has varying financial experiences. They also have different levels of expertise and reasons for starting their own business. They are a part of the IFA Diversity Fran Program, which provides a reduced franchise fee of $5,000 for minority-owned and women-owned businesses.
They provide many characteristics that appeal to women such as:
- Recognizing the value of our time-tested system and reliable business model
- Focus on growing their company by working on their business’s operations—they’re not out cleaning houses
- Commit to delivering a premium customer service experience
- Develop a professional team that confidently and positively represents the company

As a female franchise owner, she says “The advice I have is: listen to your operations rep; follow the TCA model; and train. Success takes hard work and determination. I must respect my employees and appreciate the hard work they do. They are so vital to my success.”
The Cleaning Authority celebrates all women in franchising and is excited to see more become franchise owners.
