Image One USA Launches First Ohio Franchise Location
Rodney and Tara Hines bring top emerging commercial cleaning business to Cincinnati
Commercial cleaning franchise Image One USA is continuing its expansion campaign as it welcomes Rodney and Tara Hines to the franchise family.
The Cincinnati-area husband and wife team launched in November Image One’s first franchise expansion in Cincinnati, and in that short time the Hines are already seeing the advantages of the location and the Chicagoland-based Image One Facility Solutions brand.
“It was incredible to walk into this business opportunity with several major accounts already lined up,” Rodney said. “Image One helped us get in touch with valuable clients, and really provided us the tools we needed to get the business running smoothly. We couldn’t have done it without their help.”
After working more than two decades in the commercial cleaning industry, Rodney was frustrated by the lack of support and stability former companies gave him. When he discovered the Image One franchise, he knew it was the right fit and next progression in his professional journey. In a little more than one month, the Hines have taken their two-person operation and grown it to bring on a crew of more than a dozen employees working several large-scale accounts across the Cincinnati and Columbus regions.
With nearly 100 franchise owners across the United States, and a newly launched franchise affiliate program, Image One continues to expand its name and affordable, franchise business model. Image One Director of Operations and co-founder Tim Conn is enthusiastic to have Rodney and Tara join the Image One family.
“We’re so excited that Rodney and Tara are leading the charge as Image One expands in Cincinnati and across Ohio and Kentucky,” Conn said. “They are exactly the type of owner-operators we’re seeking. They share our values, passion and eagerness and will be a great addition to our franchise community.”
Additional owner-operated locations are available across Ohio, including in Cleveland, Columbus and other markets. Image One is also slated to open a franchise in Nashville in early 2016, while targeting franchise owner-operators across the Midwest and south into Texas, Florida and Georgia.
