A little over 12 years ago, Ron Holt quit his high-paying corporate job in Atlanta to open Two Maids & A Mop, a small cleaning service along the panhandle of Florida. Friends and family members responded with skepticism and, in some cases, outright criticism. When the new business failed to gain any traction during the first few months, the criticism got louder, but Holt persevered.
Today, the Two Maids & A Mop system employs more than 200 people and cleans more than 400 homes per day across the United States. In 2013, Inc. Magazine recognized the company as the fastest-growing cleaning company in America. The company’s annual revenues exceeded $8 million in 2014 and recently, Two Maids & A Mop announced an aggressive expansion strategy to franchise the business across the country.
