Becoming an Owner


From our experience, an individual should have these minimum qualifications to consider the Environment Control opportunity:

  • Due to the demands of starting and building a commercial cleaning business, the optimum age is 25 - 45 years old (suggested, but not required).
  • A minimum of $55,000* in available capital combined with a minimum net worth of $150,000.*
  • The financial ability to purchase at least 60 percent of ownership in the franchise. (It is also the purchaser’s responsibility to find investors for the remaining franchise ownership.)
  • The drive to implement EC’s sales program to secure a growing base of customers.
  • Five years of work experience preferably in a management or sales role.
  • A self-starter energized by challenge and responsibility.
  • A family supportive of owning and building a new business.
*For a "Metropolitan" Franchise opportunity.


Environment Control's franchise opportunity is not for everyone. It best fits the person who has made five decisions about themselves and their future.

  • I want to be my own boss, but value EC's experience and proven franchise development system.
  • I can make the required financial investment to purchase an EC franchise.
  • I have the confidence to market myself and my service to potential customers.
  • I am energized by the challenge, responsibility, and perseverance required to build a business.
  • I understand that the commercial cleaning industry is not glamorous, but it can provide financial stability and a unique opportunity to have a positive influence on my community.
