Did you hear? Buzz Franchise Brands has been named as a 2018 Roaring 20 honoree for the third year in a row. We are so honored and grateful to receive this recognition from Inside Business. We absolutely love serving our Hampton Roads neighbors, giving you back the gift of time through our professional and convenient home services.

Putting People First 

We truly believe that our success begins and ends with our people – employees and franchisees alike, and this contributed to our selection for this prestigious honor.

Employee satisfaction is a major factor in the selection process, so our track record of appearing on best workplaces lists from reputable groups such as Inc Magazine and Outside Magazine certainly supported our case. 

Inside Business wrote, “The company invests in staff with formal training initiatives, monthly social and learning events, and a state-of-the-art office space with pool and Ping-Pong tables and a fully stocked café.”  

CEO Kevin Wilson agrees by adding, “We will keep people at the core of our business because it is through leading, empowering and serving people that we will make a difference in our communities.”

The same goes for our franchisees. Pool Scouts is now operating in several states across the country, while Home Clean Heroes just recently began its franchising operation. The cleaning brand will continue to build our local operation in Hampton Roads while we look for qualified franchisees to grow our brand to serve more customers nationwide. CEO Kevin Wilson states, “With a focus on supporting franchises and not on opening new corporate territories, the company has been able to experience exponential growth over the last few years.”  This focus will continue to drive us in the years ahead.
