To celebrate Women’s History Month, Coverall North America, Inc., a leading franchisor in the commercial cleaning industry
, is saluting its female independent business owners who are leveraging the power of business ownership to achieve their professional goals.
“We are so proud to have a diverse group of women from all over the country and from all backgrounds as proud, independent owners of a Coverall commercial cleaning franchise business,” said Nicole Ivey, Vice President, Marketing, Coverall. “While we celebrate the successes of our owners each month, it’s especially important this month to honor the women who are role models for their families and their communities.”
Women are opening businesses at a fast rate. According to the National Association of Women Business Owners
, there are more than 11.6 million women-owned business in the U.S. Women are currently majority owners of 38 percent of U.S. small businesses and these businesses employ nearly nine million people and generate more than $1.6 trillion in revenue each year. Since its inception in 1985, Coverall has seen a steady rise in female entrepreneurship as more women follow their passion, want an increase in flexibility and want to take control of their earning power.
One of Coverall’s franchised business owners striving to constantly exceed her clients’ expectations is Mayra Ramirez, owner of Sparklin Maids, LLC of South Florida. A single mom with two sons, Ramirez says she wants to be a role model for her children by demonstrating that anything is possible with hard work and the courage to start your own business.
“Being part of Coverall and having the company’s support and training has allowed me to grow, to be more confident and get new accounts,” said Ramirez.
Ramirez’s son helps her with her business. Her advice for aspiring female entrepreneurs is to never stop learning because owning a business is a long journey. The ongoing support from Coverall has enabled her to grow.
“If I would’ve gone on my own, I don’t think I would’ve grown the business the way I have,” she stated. “One of the major reasons why a lot people fail when they go on their own is because they have to do everything – like accounting, invoicing. I don’t have to do it because I have Coverall.”
