Q: What fees does a franchisee pay when owning a 360clean franchise?
A: Below is a breakdown of the fees. You can also review our Franchise Disclosure Document for more details.
Our Franchise Fee is $10,000. The total start-up investment ranges from $15,800 - $24,000. We require that you have a minimum of $5,000 - $15,000 (based on financing) in cash reserves to be awarded a 360clean franchise.
As you will find with all franchises, we have Ongoing Fees. These fees are listed below:
Royalty Fee: 14%

Q: What does the future look like for commercial cleaning services?
A: The industry continues to be viewed by many as recession-resistant. According to industry figures, the U.S. cleaning industry will continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the economy for the next decade, reaching well over $100 billion in revenues.
Our experience at 360clean matches this opinion as well. We began franchising in 2008 and experienced tremendous growth throughout the economic downturn. We found that businesses must keep their facilities clean and it’s an expense that remains justified even in a down economy.
