MaidPro’s Jonathan Shelson Honored as a 2018 Rockstar Franchisee

MaidPro’s Jonathan Shelson of Thornhill (Ontario) has been named a Rockstar Franchisee by Franchise Business Review

MaidPro’s Jonathan Shelson of Thornhill (Ontario) has been named a Rockstar Franchisee by Franchise Business Review. Shelson is one of only 50 to receive this award and is the only franchisee to represent the residential cleaning industry.

Shelson was selected from over 28,000 franchisees, representing 300 franchise brands that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research in the past 18 months. Shelson started his franchise in 2017 and has seen rapid growth ever since.

“Starting a new business isn’t easy. A franchise will provide you with systems and most importantly, support,” says Shelson. “Through coaching, marketing, and other means, your franchisor is your expert business partner. I couldn’t imagine my business surviving without the support of the MaidPro Home Office and the other MaidPro owners.”

Emily Estes, Business Coach for MaidPro stated, “Jonathan is a joy for us to work with. He is smart, motivated, and goal-oriented. In our industry, residential cleaning, it is crucial that owners have a passion for people. Jonathan certainly exemplifies this sentiment. He is always the first to offer a helping hand to fellow franchisees and is especially gifted in field of social media. Additionally, Jon made it a priority to become active in our nonprofit, MaidPro Cares, as soon as he opened his business. We are honored to have Jonathan as a MaidPro franchisee and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for this rockstar!”

Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance.

“There are so many fantastic success stories out there; it was painful to narrow our list down to just 50 Rockstar Franchisees,” says Michelle Rowan, President of Franchise Business Review. “There are hundreds of deserving business owners. In the end, we picked 50 individuals that really stood out. Franchisees that not only excel in their businesses, but provide strong leadership within their franchise organizations and local communities.”

Earlier this year, MaidPro was named to Franchise Business Review’s Top Franchises for 2018, Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500, and Franchise Gator’s Top Franchises for 2018.
