According to the U.S. Commerce Department, only 62% of independent businesses make it through the first year versus 96% of franchises. Surprisingly, a recent Gallop Poll found that after 5 years only 23% of independent businesses are still left, compared with an astounding 94% of franchise businesses. Franchise buyers are following a blueprint to pattern their business from. They are able to visit and observe a franchise business in operation. They also benefit from volume buying, customized programs and down the road, have access to information regarding industry trends and changes.
A franchise with a proven operating history is more likely to succeed than an independent business. Franchises have many benefits such as:

The market potential for cleaning franchises, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, is exploding. Cleaning services are expected to be the second largest source of new jobs for the period of 1994 to 2005*, fueled by an increase in two-income households. The U.S. Department of Commerce believes 80% of two-income households currently use an outside cleaning service. With both spouses working, they have less free time and rather than give up leisure activities, they turn to an outside cleaning service to perform these tasks for them. This is especially true in households where both individuals are in their wage earning prime and can easily afford and justify this extra expense.
The cleaning industry has grown to over 50 billion dollars per year.
Many economists agree that most businesses in the service sector will remain strong, even during economic slowdowns. Most of this growth is due to the fact that regular cleanings are an on-going need with an obvious potential for repeat business. This should mean a strong future for the cleaning industry as it continues to grow and may ultimately share top billing with the restaurant industry.** The residential cleaning industry offers additional advantages. Unlike commercial janitorial and carpet cleaning franchises that require evening and weekend work, residential cleaning is typically performed Monday through Friday, 9 to 5. This weekday schedule provides the franchise owner with free time to enjoy their family and personal interests.
Window Genie services three separate industries that as a whole are relatively untapped. It is a service that is typically not performed by maid services.
