How Jason Avila Grew His Own Profitable Franchise Opportunity with Image One
Developing your new business venture can certainly seem daunting at first, especially if you feel like you don’t have much experience to draw from or a business partner to share the responsibility with. However, the team at Image One is committed to assisting entrepreneurs in writing their own successful business stories with our profitable franchise opportunity.
As evidence of our track record in doing this, Jason Avila, a top-performing Image One franchise owner with over 10 years in the field, shared his experiences and advice for those considering running a franchise with Image One. Jason discussed how his franchise location went from a two-person operation to achieving over $1 million in revenue and what he learned along the way that helped him reach that milestone and build the business he’d always dreamed of.
The Early Stages
While he always had a passion for cleaning, Jason was unsure of how he could scale his business to achieve the level of income from it that he desired. Jason’s commercial cleaning journey began with cleaning and sanitizing theaters alongside his mother. Through partnering with Image One, Jason found the proper cleaning solutions to manage these tough jobs and attract cleaning professionals that Jason could add to his team.
Jason’s advice to other franchisees is to remain patient and focus on putting the time and effort into the early stages. This will earn the respect of clients and employees, which is among the most vital factors in establishing a profitable franchise.
Reaching Growth Goals
As Jason began his franchise, he recognized the competitiveness of the industry and quickly realized the importance of partnering with a trusted name in commercial cleaning that could offer him the critical support he would need. Image One was the perfect partner for Jason because we promised growth for his location and delivered on that promise to help him meet each of his goals.
Before Jason had reached his two-year mark in business, his franchise was already successful enough to hire six full-time employees. As his business continued its positive momentum, Jason found as acting sole manager overseeing his team that the workload had become quite challenging.
Working with Image One, Jason was able to bring in an operations supervisor who managed paperwork, client site inspections, and other administrative duties on his behalf. Today, Jason’s franchise has 24 employees and three operations supervisors while having also moved from a 700-square-foot office to a 4,000-square-foot office within a five-year time span. As the business has grown, Jason has been able to develop his leadership and networking skills to form better relationships with his employees and clients.
Building a Legacy
Along with his business success, Jason mentioned several personal benefits gained through his franchise partnership with Image One. His ability to make his own schedule has allowed Jason to find more time for his family and personal passions, giving him a refreshed feeling he can bring to his work.
Jason’s partnership with Image One has helped him establish a tight-knit relationship with his employees and the local community where they work. He takes pride in employing hard-working individuals and receiving positive client feedback, which further motivates his team to deliver high-quality work.
Jason plans to continue working with Image One and get his children involved in the business. When he retires, he hopes his children will take over and continue his work to make their family legacy a lasting part of their community.
