Anago Cleaning Systems Gains Ground in Florida

Local couple to expand commercial cleaning franchise opportunities throughout North Central Florida 

OCALA, Fla., Sept. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Anago Cleaning Systems, an industry-leading commercial cleaning franchise with over 1,800 Regional and Unit Franchises throughout the U.S. and Canada, announced its newest Master Franchise operators in the company’s home state of Florida. The husband and wife team, Mark Patterson and Yuli Guo, will lead Anago’s unit franchise operations, bringing small business ownership opportunities to 26 counties from Ocala, touted as the “Horse Capital of the world,” to Tallahassee, the sunshine state’s capital city.

Mark conducted his due diligence when exploring a new revenue stream, leading him to franchising. Researching industries that would not be affected soon by the surge of artificial intelligence or robotics, Mark honed in on commercial cleaning, especially with the Master Franchise model that designates a specific territory to build and grow.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Florida leads the country in new business formations, accounting for almost 12% of all new business startups from January 2021 to January 2022. Anago of North Florida’s extensive reach includes target-rich cities of Ocala, Gainesville, Tallahassee, and the surrounding counties. All of these are leading the area’s growth, with populations of people who can benefit significantly through small business ownership.

“The North Florida territory is primed for low cost, high opportunity business recruitment, and growth, which will feed an equal amount of growth into services that cater to those business centers and units,  like commercial cleaning,” said Mark. “My wife, Yuli, and I have operated businesses in Florida for many years, and we are excited to launch this new opportunity, allowing us to utilize our distinct business and operations experience while helping new entrepreneurs realize their dream of small business ownership.”

Mark’s wife and business partner, Yuli, is also excited to launch Anago of North Florida. Born and raised in China, Yuli immigrated to the U.S. nearly 12 years ago with a background of hard work, dedication, and grit. Yuli will lead the operations, helping new franchisees maintain the highest integrity and quality control standards synonymous with the Anago brand. Yuli is incredibly excited to offer more small business ownership opportunities to the growing Asian residents living between Marion and Leon counties.

The new Anago North Florida office is in Ocala and can be reached via the company website, or by calling Mark and Yuli at 352-356-4651.
