FranNet consultant Mike Martuza referred Jonathon Van to Molly Maid Franchise. “I’m a numbers person with a big heart,” said Jonathon. “Molly Maid with its predictable revenue from repeat customers spoke to my rational side, and contributing to my community through the Ms. Molly Foundation and other local programs touched an emotional need.” Jonathon possesses the qualities to be a successful Molly Maid franchise owner: an experienced manager, customer-service oriented, and a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. He’ll do that in the Milton/Needham suburbs west of Boston where he’s lived for more than 20 years.
Jonathon Van is a trained accountant, self-taught photographer, and servant leader. Jonathon’s father started Van Millwork in 1967. Jonathon joined the family business in 1981 armed with a business degree from the University of Massachusetts. In 1983 with the company grossing $500K in annual revenue, Jonathon was named president. By 2006, Van was the largest millwork supplier in New England with 75 employees and $18 million in annual sales. “We’d sold the company and it was time to take in some fresh air,” said Jonathon. “We had loyal customers, but not the steady kind that Molly Maid has. I talked to enough franchisees to know that the sky is the limit with this business.”
