Mission and Core Values are at the Heart of Office Pride

From the Start, Office Pride CEO Todd Hopkins Set out to Build a Franchise System United in Both Vision and Purpose

When Office Pride CEO Todd Hopkins launched the commercial cleaning brand back in 1992 and franchised it in 1996, he didn’t necessarily set out to create a diverse franchise system, but it happened naturally over time. Hopkins’ mission was to create a community of franchisees with a common set of core values — and he did just that. “From the beginning, my goal was for Office Pride to become a franchise system that could help honest and integrity-filled people achieve their dreams of business ownership, regardless of their background.”

“The No.1 thing that resonates with Office Pride franchisees, regardless of race or gender, is the rich faith-based culture.”

Office Pride’s values are spelled out on the company’s website and have been the foundation for the success of the award-winning franchise system. Office Pride’s community of more than 145 franchisees across 24 states is incredibly diverse. Hopkins attributes that diversity in part to the company’s faith-based culture and values. “The No. 1 thing that resonates with Office Pride franchisees, regardless of race or gender, is the rich faith-based culture, which is based on our mission and strong core values,” he says. “Our franchise owners come from many different backgrounds and experiences, which helps foster new ideas, ways of thinking and growth.”    

Hopkins explains that Office Pride is much more than a way to make money. There’s a bigger vision that he shares with every franchise owner. “Office Pride is a diverse franchise system united in both vision and purpose: Our business is not just about commercial cleaning; it’s about positively impacting people.”

Hopkins says that Office Pride’s core values serve as decision filters. The first one is to honor God. “God is not a respecter of persons. He looks at the heart, not at outward appearances. So do we. When we are at our franchise retreats and I’m speaking to our franchise owners, I think, ‘Awesome, this must be what Heaven looks like.’”
