Jim and Susan Fordice are the local owners of Maid Brigade of Northwest Houston. When they aren’t thinking about cleaning green they are spending family time with their children and grandchildren! Their time together usually involves outdoor activities including soccer, baseball and camping. When Jim and Susan have alone time together they enjoy reading, ballroom dancing and hanging out with their 3 dogs and cat.
The Fordices are originally from the Midwest and have moved around the country due to the corporate job Jim used to have before owning his own Maid Brigade. They wanted to take control of their own future and didn’t want to keep moving wherever an employer told them to. Since Jim has a background in franchise sales and spoke with different franchisees on a regular basis he started thinking about owning his own franchise. The Fordices found Maid Brigade and never looked backed.
Recently in their office they celebrated the anniversaries of Clara, Reyna, Mary and Nancy who’ve been with them for 4, 2 and 1 years! Jim and Susan highly value their team members and appreciate all of the hard work they do.
Maid Brigade of Northwest Houston likes to stay involved with their community too! Jim sits on the Board of Directors of the Cy-Fair Chamber of Commerce and is extremely involved with giving back. They have donated cleanings to a variety of non-profits for use at fundraisers, Cleaning for a Reason to help cancer patients as well as move-in cleanings for Habitat for Humanity. To date they have donated over $4,100 in cleanings for the year! The Fordices also recently finished collecting books during the Maid Brigade Book Drive and donated their collections to the Cypress Christian School’s library. The community involvement doesn’t stop there though. Laura Stark, the office’s General Manager, is involved with a local Houston organization called Corridor Rescue. The organization is dedicated to helping animals who have been thrown out on the streets, usually injured and starving, to fend for themselves. This organization dedicates itself to saving the lives of these animals that are found along the I-59 and West Little York area of Houston known as the “Corridor of Cruelty.”
They service the Champions, Copperfield, Cypress, Tomball, 1960 West, and Northwest 290 areas.
