Dynamic Husband-and-Wife Team Plan Rapid Growth For Commercial Cleaning Business
Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), an industry-leading commercial cleaning franchise with over 40 Master Franchise locations and over 1,500 Unit Franchises throughout the U.S. and internationally, is pleased to announce its newest Vancouver, Canada Master Franchise Owners, husband-and-wife team of Ginette and Tim Bourke.
The office is located at 8980 Fraserwood Court, 24A Burnaby, BC V5J 3J1 and will serve the greater Vancouver area.
“Our mission as a franchise company is to provide the best service to our clients and continue to help grow a community of business owners,” says Adam Povlitz, President of Anago Cleaning Systems. “Ginette and Tim bring a strong sales and entrepreneurial background that will help strengthen our footprint in Vancouver,” Povlitz adds.
As Co-Master Franchise Owners, the Bourke’s bring a combined 35 years of experience in sales, business and education. Tim Bourke has spent his career as a mechanical engineer focusing on naval architecture in Canada. After working in the engineering field for several years, Tim decided to pivot and started his own lawn and garden maintenance firm. Founded in 1995, Bur-Han Garden & Lawn Care is now one of the largest lawn care service companies in the region.
Ginette built her career as a French Immersion school teacher for Kindergarten, 1stand 2nd grades. Both Tim and Ginette wanted to find a business model that was established and ready to grow – a Master Franchise was perfect for that. Tim received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture from the University of British Columbia. Ginette earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from Simon Frasier University. They currently reside in Vancouver with their two children.
“Ginette and I have always wanted to start a business together and after a careful vetting process, Anago was the perfect fit,” says Bourke. “We can enjoy managing the business while helping others become business owners in the community,” adds Bourke.
