Povlitz challenges all 500 franchised companies ranked annually by Entrepreneur Magazine to follow his lead. Entrepreneur issued the challenge to the franchise community via its website, in an article titled “Franchise Slashes Fees to Spur Jobs”. The article states that the company “is lowering the cost of acquiring a Master Franchise by as much as 85% to $35,000” and quotes Povlitz who says “The hard reality is that it’s going to be up to small businesses to create new jobs”.

Anago’s Master Territories were historically priced from $150,000 to $250,000. Povlitz has drastically reduced the price of a brand new Master to just $35K, making the dream of business ownership an attainable reality for many more Americans. A 36-year veteran of the janitorial service business, Povlitz believes in giving back to the country that has given him the opportunity to be the successful business owner he is today. “There is no greater satisfaction in life than helping others” says Povlitz, “and during these trying times for all Americans, Anago wishes only to do its part to rebuild our great nation.”
There are currently more than 60 available Anago Master Territories across the U.S. If each Master sold approximately 25 to 40 Janitorial or Unit Franchises annually, and each Unit hires an average of 3 to 5 employees, over the next 10 years, the potential exists for 120,000 new jobs to be created across the country!
While 120,000 new jobs over 10 years may seem small in comparison to the entire U.S. economy, if the franchise community joined in Anago’s commitment to assisting our fellow Americans achieve financial freedom and success, the prospect of 500 franchise companies each adding in excess of 10,000 new jobs annually, would definitely affect the economy in a very positive way!
The Anago Master Franchise Owner has the exclusive developmental rights to sell Janitorial or Unit Franchises in a defined territory. Simultaneously, the Master sells cleaning contracts, business-to-business, within the territory and contracts them to those who purchased the Unit Franchise. Povlitz founded the company in 1989 and began franchising in 1991. Today Anago has over 30 operational Master Territories across the country, and over 2,000 Unit Franchisees servicing clients in those 30+ territories. The commercial cleaning industry is projected at $100 billion annually, with expected double-digit growth. The business model is truly recession-resistant, with low overhead and fast ramp up.
Anago Cleaning Systems is headquartered in Pompano Beach, Florida. Among the numerous awards the company has received recently, Anago has been named, for the second year in a row as the 5th Fastest Growing Franchise in the U.S., according to Entrepreneur Magazine.
