Specialized Cleaning Services, Inc. Named Coverall Franchise Owner of the Year

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. - (August 30, 2018) -- Coverall North America, Inc., one of the leading franchisors in the commercial cleaning industry, named Specialized Cleaning Services, Inc., owned and operated by Cory and Joan Blake, as the 2017 Franchised Business Owners of the Year.  The Blakes were recognized for their ability to retain and grow their customer base, number of years in operation, revenue and their ability to manage special services.

“This is an honor and proof that hard work, patience and focus pays off,” said Cory Blake, who operates his commercial cleaning business in the Bradenton/Sarasota, Florida area. “Everyone dreams of opening their own business, we made our business a true family affair.”

Cory and Joan Blake started their business in 2006. Prior to owning their own business, Cory was a warehouse supervisor. He recognized the business opportunity in the growing Florida market and identified Coverall as the best franchise to support his vision.

“Starting a business is daunting,” added Cory Blake. “There is no bigger benefit than the strong support base Coverall provides, allowing me to focus on running and growing the business.”

“Congratulations to the Blake family,” added Shirley Klein, Coverall’s Chief Operating Officer. “They are an exemplary example of a Coverall Franchised Business Owner. They’ve steadily grown their business to include eight employees and 34 accounts through their dedication to providing stellar customer service and impeccable results.”

Coverall provides operational support and training to help business owners successfully launch their new initiatives while achieving personal and financial freedom.   

“We could not have done this without Coverall’s support system guiding us each step of the way,” said the Blakes. “Their Regional Support Center is always there for us. That combined with the latest in cleaning technology, has been a winning combination.”

Cory and Joan Blake will be recognized for their accomplishments in September at the International Franchise Association’s Franchise Action Network Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
