Topic: Interview with a CEO

BeTheBoss.ca: Tell us about the MyMaid Franchise concept.

Like we have done for the past 32 years, we would be honored to have the opportunity to make your home a sanctuary and the chance to become your rock. Join the many families and individuals who allow us to bring a sense of peace, balance and wellness to your home! In our early days, we took the time to talk to hundreds of home cleaning maid companies in Ontario and all across Canada, big and small. We were amazed to discover that no one really understood the true mechanics of cleaning a home and the proper green products to use. For example, did you know that dish soap is a degreaser and a degreaser is a paint striper? Let us bring the sparkle and shine back to your home, while keeping it clean longer and safe for all members of your family!

Craig Billingsley: MyMaid has been providing quality home and residential cleaning for the past 32 years and in 2014 started franchising our system.

Last summer, I received the greatest compliment I could possibly get from a family I work for as a butler and estate manager.
