Our Strategy

“During a Gold Rush, Sell Shovels”

Remember sitting in your 4th grade class and learning about the California Gold Rush?

Fun fact about the Gold Rush: the people to make the MOST MONEY were the ones selling shovels, NOT the ones digging for gold. Want proof?

  • Henry Wells and William Fargo left their homes and lived on the East Coast of America to found a bank branch in San Francisco.
  • Phillip Armour, who would go on to found a meatpacking empire, got his start operating the sluices that controlled the water flow into the rivers that miners worked.
  • A German tailor named Levi Strauss first arrived in San Francisco planning to sell canvas tarps and wagon coverings when he found out that work pants that could survive the punishing life of miners were in high demand. He decided to serve them instead.

We are leveraging the newest technology and software to create a, LOW COST, FULLY REMOTE franchise that means you can get into the shovel and pickaxe game for this new vacation rental gold rush!

We do this by:

Cutting Edge Software: Using technology that automates processes for our clients, our vendors, and our team members. Client RAVE about the automation that our systems provides. We train you in these simple software applications until you know them backwards and forwards.

Remote Systems: Using systems that allow you to be fully remote from day one. This isn’t theory for us. We’ve been running multiple MaidThis locations remotely for literally years now. You get access to our playbook and training on how to do this yourself!

Global Team: Leveraging location independence in hiring: using a global labor pool to create hiring efficiencies in pay. Our Los Angeles location, for example, has support staff based in Honduras, Panama, Mexico and South Africa, among other countries No need to overpay to find someone in your neighborhood…you can get the best talent around the WORLD with our system

Community Engagement: At some point the gold rush will end and law and order will be established. The best way to be part of that new order is to be part of the advocacy and outreach efforts in your local community. We have pioneered innovative ways to network and create goodwill in individual communities.

You want to be your own boss, have your own time (and location!) freedom, and build wealth.

Why re-invent the wheel?

How We Started

The year is 2013. Our founder, Neel Parekh, was sick and tired of the corporate grind. Why should all of the benefits of his hard work go to “the man”? When could he finally get the time freedom that he so desired?!

One day Neel ordered a cleaning service and realized how TERRIBLE existing cleaning providers are. No automated online payment? No online booking? Marketing with physical flyers? What time were we in? The Stone Ages?!

As he dreamed of entrepreneurial and financial freedom, he decided to launch a cleaning service with a twist: it would be a cleaning service made for the NEW generation and using all NEW marketing tactics and automation that none of the existing companies were doing.

Thus, MaidThis was born!

Two years later (during which he acquired the nickname “Drug Dealer” for spending his entire lunch break walking around on the phone, building MaidThis), he quit his full-time job and made his part-time business his full-time pursuit.

Originally MaidThis was the newest of many local cleaning businesses, but more and more clients asked for help cleaning an Airbnb®. Being a baby entrepreneur, at first Neel would say, “No, that’s not really our thing,” and tried to continue a broad strategy. But then he started doing a bit of research: not only did a niche make a lot of sense in any business, but by allowing MaidThis to niche into Airbnb® and vacation rental cleanings, not only would a solid revenue stream develop, but one that was destined to ride on the rocket-like growth of vacation rentals! MaidThis got into vacation rental cleanings in a big way.

Side-by-side with getting on the vacation rental bandwagon was exploiting the weaknesses of the providers in the cleaning space. The local cleaning industry is very fragmented, with lots of mom and pop operators who still utilize old ways of doing business — which have their place! — but left them very vulnerable on the technology side. Neel leaned MaidThis into those techniques, growing the company quickly but methodically. It was a real chance to “clean up” on the competition (sorry, we couldn’t resist!).

Years passed and Neel added new team members and expanded into new markets, where they refined systems and tweaked profitability. He also traveled around the world, testing the premise that the MaidThis opportunity was something fully remote, that could be operated in the US, Asia, South America, or Europe, just to name a few of the places he went to.

In 2020, the team felt ready, and a new company was formed to franchise the MaidThis model everywhere.
