Jim Torcivia had toyed with the idea of investing, but never felt comfortable with any of his possibilities until he learned about a local franchise company rapidly expanding across the country. After careful consideration, Jim decided to invest in the Two Maids & A Mop franchise concept by purchasing two affiliate-owned locations that were already open for business in Chattanooga and Nashville, Tenn.

“The opportunity was just too good to pass up, and it allowed me to have a steady income without having to quit my full-time job,” says Jim, who works as a program manager for an environmental consulting firm.

As a franchise owner, Torcivia is permitted to replicate the successful Two Maids business model, including the proprietary “Pay for Performance” plan, in which employee wages are directly determined by customer feedback. The franchise owners also reap the benefits of the innovative marketing approach that Two Maids executives have implemented, focusing heavily on digital arenas, social media and organic reach, which allows franchise owners to quickly control a significant amount of their local market share.

In September 2015, Jim opened another franchise location in Knoxville, Tenn., and has plans to open a location in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in February 2016. All three of his current locations have seen exceptional growth under Torcivia’s ownership, with 84 percent growth in 2015.

Torcivia operates his three locations as an absentee owner, which involves providing the monetary investment while executives provide a qualified sweat equity partner to manage day-to-day operations of the business. Torcivia has regular communication with his team and meets in person quarterly. The alternative investment franchise model is an owner-operator model, which is designed for people who have the investment capital needed and a passion to run their own business.

“The steady income from my Two Maids franchise locations has allowed me to work solely because I want to, not because I have to,” says Torcivia, who lives in Birmingham, Ala., with his wife and two sons. “The financial freedom this gives me makes me glad that I got involved with Two Maids, and I think it is a great opportunity for people looking to invest.”

Two Maids & A Mop is the nation’s second fastest growing cleaning company and recently landed on Inc. Magazine’s list of 10 Franchises That Swept the Nation in 2015, as well as earning a spot on Inc. Magazine’s 2015 list of 5,000 fastest growing private companies in America for the third consecutive year. Two Maids ranked No. 782 on the list, making them the second fastest growing cleaning company in America, the fifth fastest growing company in Birmingham and ninth in Alabama.
