Let’s roll back the clock to 2011 when Tim Conn and Mike Schuchman started Image One. Truthfully, our values haven’t changed since; to provide a seamless franchise experience for anyone planning to start a commercial cleaning business. Now here we are in 2021, celebrating ten years of achievements thanks to our growing franchise network of hard-
working and motivated business owners. A lot has changed about Image One and our industry since then, so we want to take this time to look back and reflect. As you examine options in planning how you will start a commercial cleaning business, first consider Image One’s exciting investment incentives to celebrate our decade of franchising that you won’t want to miss!
