Franchise Industry Recognized as Economic Engine for Female Entrepreneurs

Fort Lauderdale, Feb. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), an industry-leading commercial cleaning franchise with more than 35 Master Franchises and over 1,400 Unit Franchisees throughout the U.S. and internationally, announced today that Franchise Business Review ranked Anago as one of the Top Franchises for Women as part of the publication’s first annual “Top Franchises for Women” list.

“One of our guiding principles as a global franchise brand is to champion women in business,” said Judy Walker, Vice President of Marketing for Anago Cleaning Systems. “Not only are we honored to receive this award, but we will continue to encourage female entrepreneurs to lead their own franchise business.”

In a recent studied conducted by Franchise Business Review, nearly 90 percent of female Franchisees say they enjoy operating their businesses and among the 6,400 female Franchisees surveyed, 84 percent state they respect their franchisor. In addition, 40 percent of female Franchisees hold a Bachelor’s Degree and earn an average income of $63,000. What is even more promising for brands like Anago, is that 71 percent of female Franchisees rated the cleaning sector as best for work-life balance.

As companies continue to double down on female leadership opportunities, research demonstrates that while women prove to be innate relationship builders, they also exhibit key workplace competencies such as taking on major business challenges, displaying integrity and honesty in stressful environments, and driving substantial results. Ultimately, companies who employ more female executives generally see an increase in their bottom line. Anago, like many companies around the world has proven that model to be true.

“Anago provided me with the platform to directly impact those living in the Baltimore community,” said Susan Cashman, Master Franchise Owner, Anago of Baltimore. “Becoming a business owner has been a huge blessing in my life, and I commend Anago for continuing to support other women who dream of doing the same.”
