The Cleaning Authority of Salisbury Sold to New Owner

Charlotte, NC | June 2019

The Salisbury, North Carolina, franchise location of The Cleaning Authority was recently sold with the assistance of VR Business Brokers of Charlotte. The Cleaning Authority franchise, with headquarters in Columbia, Maryland, is one of the nation’s leading providers of residential home cleaning services with more than 200 locations.

The Salisbury location had been owned by Cathy Garret for nearly 10 years. For nearly a year, Cathy tried unsuccessfully to sell the business through both her franchisor and a loose national network of franchise brokers. She then engaged with the services of Randy Mitchell, Business Broker with VR Business Brokers of Charlotte, and a 17-year veteran of franchising. Through a geographically focused marketing campaign, Randy found a local buyer and the transaction was closed within 8 months of engagement.

Said Cathy, “Randy Mitchell of VR Business Brokers of Charlotte always had my interest protected, was clear in his communications, and was someone who displayed the highest level of integrity and loyalty in all that he did in helping us to sell our business of ten years.”
