Shelly’s sister, Marta, decided to buy an Anago Cleaning Systems franchise, and Shelly began working with her to make some extra money. She watched as Marta’s franchise continued to grow. She did all she could with her sister and eventually saved enough money from her pizza job to buy her very own Anago franchise! Her dream had become a reality. Shelly would be her own boss and would no longer have to work for anyone else. Her three daughters, she thought, would finally have the life she had dreamed for them.
With Anago’s comprehensive orientation program, Shelly quickly learned not only efficient cleaning techniques, but also the importance of good service and communication with all her clients. She also learned how to manage her own business and her employees. “Owning my Anago franchise has allowed me to set my own hours, and be my own boss. My self-esteem has improved significantly,” she says.
Shelly set high expectations for herself and her employees. Her Anago franchise has grown significantly, and her clients are extremely pleased with the service she provides them. Since she purchased her franchise in January 2010, she has never lost a single client! She started small, and is now managing two crews to clean all the accounts she services. She can hardly believe the success she enjoys now. “From holding up a sign on a street corner, to owning my own Anago business – I can never express enough how Anago has changed my life. I am here to stay!” Brett Drumm, Master Owner of Anago of Tulsa adds “Shelly is such a great example of an American small business owner, exemplifying how hard work, perseverance, and the will to succeed pay off!”
There are over 30 Anago Cleaning Systems regional offices nationwide, with over 2,000 Franchisees enjoying the benefits of business ownership, just like Shelly Hernandez. Anago provides the backing and support of an established company to give aspiring business owners the foundation to succeed in this thriving industry.
