360clean’s Birgit Rutledge Recognized as a 2023 Franchise Rock Star by Franchise Business Review

July 2023 – 360clean’s Birgit Rutledge was identified by franchise research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of 2023’s Franchise Rock Stars.

Rutledge was selected from over 36,000 franchisees, representing more than 360 brands that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research.

The Franchise Rock Stars were nominated by their franchise brand’s leadership in one of eight categories as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community. Categories included: Giving Back, Women, Millennials, Veterans, Family-Owned, “Freshmen”, Top-Performers, and Multi-Unit Owners.

“There are so many stories of inspiring franchise owners who are living their dreams of successful business ownership, that it was incredibly difficult to select this year’s Franchise Rock Stars,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “In the end, we chose individuals who truly exemplify a strong work ethic and a real commitment to their business and their communities. We are thrilled to recognize these Rock Stars as exceptional examples of achieving success within the franchise model.”


Birgit Rutledge joined 360clean in October 2020 and has truly made her mark. As a female owned business, she has accomplished many ‘firsts’ within the company such as the fastest growing franchise, and the first member of our ‘Million Dollar Club’ which recognizes franchise owners achieving $1,000,000 in revenue invoiced in a calendar year.

Beginning her business in the rough of the pandemic, Birgit displayed her ability to adapt to adversity. It was a difficult time for so many, but she did not faulter when learning to navigate through business ownership. Birgit currently sits at number 2 in the company and has been recognized as a top producer and awarded for her success as a new and fast-growing franchise.

Birgit offers great support to fellow franchise owners of 360clean and never misses an opportunity to collaborate at our annual events. As a wife and mother there are many roles to play and responsibilities, but she makes it her top priority to be present and participate in all things 360clean. Her success and dedication to the brand and growing her business truly makes her a Rock Star!


“It has been very impressive watching Birgit grow not just her business, but the 360clean brand in a new market over the last few years,” says Martin Mascio, VP of Operations at 360clean. “You can easily see how her leadership style has trickled down into her business to provide an outstanding customer experience that has contributed to her fast and successful growth in just under 3 years.  She is a perfect example of following the process and working diligently each day to meet her goals. It is an honor to have someone of her character representing 360clean, and a joy to work with.”
