Cleaning Business Plan
Why YOUR Cleaning Company NEEDS One
Does Your Cleaning company need a cleaning business plan
Mike Campion coaches John Griffin with Basic Green Cleaning Service on systems and how to make a cleaning business plan. Basic Green Cleaning was born out of desperation when the economy was a mess and John couldn’t even get a job as a bus boy. Five years in, John was forced to deal with serious health issues and was unable to run his business for three years.
John returned and understood more than ever the need for a business plan and systems to get more customers and grow his cleaning company.
