Having Freedom and Flexibility

Having Freedom and Flexibility: A Success Story

Darcie Saunders

Started OpenWorks Franchise in 2004

"The fact that you have someone that's your partner that will help you and almost hold your hand through the process makes a huge difference. That's what OpenWorks has done for me in the last 10 years."


I was 19 years old, attending college, and I wanted to be able to have a job while going to school. I was not sure at the time I wanted to own my own business, but I knew I wanted to be able to work my job around school and being my own boss would allow me to do that. I wanted to have freedom and flexibility.


OpenWorks offered me access to a solid business model and appealing marketing prospects. They brought in people that have made me successful. They came to me with a major account and helped me to find the right tools and equipment to do the job. OpenWorks allows me to have freedom and flexibility I wouldn't have with another job.


Starting my own business at such a young age, OpenWorks really stepped up and provided all the equipment I needed to get started. Not only did they teach me how to do the cleaning, they taught me how to manage my business. They continue to provide the accounts for me to achieve success financially. Their ongoing training and supportive staff make a huge difference. OpenWorks has become my partner and I know I am not in this business alone. Learn more about Unit Franchise Opportunities
