Need A Maid?
Need A Maid? was formerly known as Blue Bird Cleaning Services and was founded in 1979. The owner of the company, Ginger Howard, acquired the company in 1988. The name of the company started out almost as a joke when Ginger placed an ad in a local newspaper asking readers if they “Need A Maid?” and the response was tremendous. Today, the Need A Maid? franchise opportunity stands head and shoulders above other cleaning franchise opportunities.

Cleaning and building maintenance is one of America's fastest growing industries. It's predicted that commercial and residential cleaning services revenues will increase 5.5 percent per year through 2009, to over $60 billion. What's behind this growth? For one, there is a shift away from do-it-yourself to do-it-for-me, particularly in the residential market. In addition, many businesses are outsourcing their cleaning and maintenance in order to reduce costs.
