The best part of starting this business was my business partner. I knew that no matter what I was going through, she was going through it too. I remember that and keep it so close to my heart. We are that person for all of our franchisee's except instead of drinking ALL the wine, we have answers and a bit of guidance instead. You will always have someone in your corner who will understand exactly what you are going through! - Kristin Verbeek

Systems for our systems
Each day we play our "hit by a bus" game. If the company can not stand without us, we have failed. You should run your company. It shouldn't run you.
We have fallen, scraped some knees and bounced back up and now have proven systems to minimize the skin-to-pavement occurrences.

Sounds simple enough right? It seems every where you turn there are ads from different cleaners who have started their own gig. The question is do you want to put your hard work into starting something from scratch, have the stress of figuring it out on your own and risking taking one step forward and 2 steps back? Or do you want to take advantage of the lessons we have learned already and use your effort and time to grow a successful business in less time? We have been in these shoes and walked in them for years, we know exactly what you will be going through and know the best way to get you where you want to go.
From registering your business, to paying remittances, WCB, payroll and so many other 'secrets' the business community seems to hold we will walk you through ALL of them!
Every. Step. Of. The. Way. We have videos, real time help and templates for all the 'What Ifs?'. Everything that we have learned along the way has been recorded so that you don't have to learn it the hard way. From your training, to hiring your staff and training them, we have the know how you will need and are always improving.
Our cup is never full. We always encourage our staff and franchisees to give input on how to grow and better our ways!
At Lathered we are committed to using non toxic products that clean as well if not better than conventional cleaners but without the risk to your health and the health of your employees and clients. Forget the old school idea of needing 10 products from under the sink and we will arm you with the best products for the job while keeping you safe and minimizing the environmental impact at the same time. Even old dogs have jumped on board after trying our ways! In 2020 we took things even further and developed our own line of cleaning products. They are tried, tested and true to our non-toxic values. Bonus is, you get them at a discounted rate!
