With clear business goals and a strong company culture, NEXClean is growing quickly – so quickly that it has earned the recognition of major players. In addition to being a recipient of the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Soaring 76 award, which recognizes the fastest-growing businesses in Philadelphia, NEXClean was inducted into the Philadelphia100® Hall of Fame for being named to the Philadelphia100® list for five consecutive years.

Started in 1988 by The Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia and the Wharton Small Business Development Center, the merit-based program recognizes the fastest-growing, privately held entrepreneurial companies in the Greater Philadelphia area. In order to be considered for the list, nominees must have a positive three-year average revenue growth as well as company earnings of more than $125,000 in the earliest reported year. NEXClean has been a shoo-in for the list, with results stemming from its commitment to providing reliable, high-quality services.

“These awards, of course, recognize revenue growth, but they’re a testimony to our existing clients,” said Dan Nestor, co-founder and president of the specialty commercial cleaning company. “We grow our business through referrals, and our clients have been spreading the word about our services, attention to detail and customer service. We work closely with our clients to build specific plans to suit their needs.”

NEXClean’s large network of clients and dynamic digital marketing campaign provide further support to franchisees, helping them establish and maintain important connections. With clients in place, franchisees are able to focus on developing a team and delegating responsibilities.

This owner-operator model boasts large territory offerings, minimal startup costs and a quick turnaround time for opening, with many franchisees opening in six to eight weeks. This opportunity is ideal for hard workers interested in scaling a lucrative business.

“We’re looking for people to come into our brand who see no limit to their potential,” Nestor said.
