OpenWorks FDD – Franchise Information, Costs and Fees
Type of Business
The franchisee will offer commercial janitorial services under the name OpenWorks. OpenWorks enters into janitorial service contracts with commercial clients. These contracts (or “accounts”) may then be “packaged” with other similar contracts to cumulate at one of seven levels of a gross monthly dollar amount (also called the “initial monthly account volume” in the Franchise Agreement), and assigned to OpenWorks franchisees, who receive exclusive rights to service the contracts under OpenWorks’ trademarks and system. OpenWorks bills each client on a monthly basis and, after deducting fees and charges owed by you to OpenWorks under the Franchise Agreement, remits to you the balance of the gross monthly dollar amount for your accounts.
