Image One Franchise Opportunity

Image One is a national franchise that has grown incredibly since it started to offer franchising opportunities in 2011. There are a few key aspects of the Image One franchise opportunity that are different from any other cleaning company:

-We’ve been offering facility solutions to businesses for over 30 years. That’s a long time to perfect our practices, which is why we can offer a stellar franchise opportunity that incorporates those.

-We’re a family business. Image One offers an opportunity to get the entire family involved. Many of our franchise owners work with their spouses or even have a larger business that offers job opportunities for aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, and others that are close to them.

Image One Owner Satisfaction Report

Franchise Business Review has worked with over 1,100 franchise systems. We independently contact all open and active franchisees and invite them to participate in our satisfaction survey. Only the brands that exceed our satisfaction benchmark are displayed on our website. It’s impressive to see the Image One franchisees rate all questions on our survey above the industry average. The largest variance (+36%) was innovation, which a lot of franchise systems struggle with. Image One conducted their franchise review in August 2021, and collected feedback from 62% of the active franchisees (30).

Highlights include:

  • 100% of franchisees would recommend the franchise to others.
  • 100% of franchisees “strongly agree” or “agree” to enjoying operating the business.
  • Long-Term Growth opportunity was rated 13% higher the industry benchmark with 86% of franchisees rating it “strong” or “very strong”.
