"I was able to rely on OpenWorks to supply me with customers from the get-go. This has been a huge help because it has kept me from being distracted by any direct sale efforts. So, my time is spent on the business, not on looking for customers."
Keith Estes — Franchisee since 1990

"I've been in the business for fifteen years. I know it inside and out. Ironically, I wasn't able to see significant growth until I used OpenWorks' systems and business philosophy. They focused on my business objectives — which is something I wasn't able to do on my own."
Chris Jones — Franchisee since 1998

"Before becoming an OpenWorks franchisee, I was a Senior Executive for a very large private corporation. Making the decision to own my own business re-energized my life. During my investigation of opportunities, OpenWorks was presented as a professional, forward-thinking company with many talented employees. Their desire to seek and support franchisees with a business background and a desire to grow and become successful with OpenWorks fit perfectly with my ambitions to become very large and prosperous in the commercial cleaning service industry. I was impressed by OpenWorks' level of support and training and their commitment to provide accounts and opportunities to grow rapidly. OpenWorks is a company dedicated to superior customer service and this focus is apparent at all levels. They have lived up to every commitment made. The commercial cleaning business is not glamorous, but it has great opportunities for the entrepreneur who is willing to work. OpenWorks is an outstanding partner. I highly recommend them to anyone."
W. Kenneth Chaffee - Franchisee since 2000
