Anago Cleaning Systems has announced the results from its annual industry awards program, which was recently held via a virtual ceremony. The award ceremony recognized franchise leaders in several categories including the “Master Franchise City of Year” award, and it comes at a time where the company reflects on all it has done during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a commercial cleaning franchise with operations across the nation, Anago Cleaning System admitted it learned more than its share of new disinfection and sanitation policies, the importance of personal protective equipment, and about the responsibility of being considered among the frontline working class during the pandemic.
“The importance and value of commercial cleaning has been re-defined due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Adam Povlitz, company CEO and president. “Aside from what we learned as an industry, we also experienced the power and passion of people from all walks of life and backgrounds uniting together to serve the communities where we live, send our kids to school, and care for our elders and neighbors. I am extremely proud of the entire Anago family for coming together and make the best out of a very difficult period in human history.”
To rise to the COVID-19 challenge, while mindful of creating the safest procedural requirements as possible, Anago quickly pivoted and launched a brand-new specialized cleaning service, Protection+ Disinfection, which was developed with recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control, Environmental Protection Agency, and Health Canada. This new program was welcomed by Franchise Owners and customers and made the difference in the survival of many local businesses.
At Anago, new franchise ownership pre-COVID was nearing record-breaking numbers. Once the pandemic took hold, those numbers increased even more as entrepreneurs looked for resilient business opportunities to safeguard against unpredictable economic times. Having posted record numbers during the Great Recession and the H1N1 Virus of 2009, commercial cleaning earned its place among the nation’s top business industries that experienced an increase of sales, service and business ownership. The COVID-19 pandemic has produced even stronger results.
