If you live in the Washington, D.C. area you’ve probably heard of Maid Brigade of Western Fairfax County or Maid Brigade of Leesburg. Dave Newland is the owner of both of these locations and he’s also one of our Featured Franchisees! Dave was born in Corning, NY and moved to the D.C. area right after college. He is happily married to his wife, Linda and has a total of 4 children ranging in age from 15-25. His 25 year- old daughter serves in the United States Air Force, his 18 year-old stepdaughter is attending the University of Virginia and his 17 year-old son along with his 15 year-old stepdaughter are high school students. When Dave isn’t with his family you can find him along with his house cleaning crew at Green Cleaning and Home & Garden shows in the community!
Dave became a Maid Brigade owner after becoming tired of the corporate grind while working in cost-sell operations for a local retailer. He decided to start looking into other business and came across an ad for Maid Brigade, he was sold after that! As an owner Dave made it his mission to enhance and nurture everyone in his home cleaning business. He provides a flexible paid time off program to all of his employees because he knows that they all have families at home that are their number one priority. Dave has also been sponsor for people to work legally in our country for 15 years!
His mission has paid off because he hasn’t seen any turnover in his Maid Brigade offices for a few years now. Dave is also proud to say that the average green cleaning maid has been with him for 6 years! The General Manager, Wendy Blevins has been with him for 15 years and with those kinds of employees the customers of Maid Brigade of Western Fairfax County and Maid Brigade of Leesburg receive the green cleaning team they are happiest with every time.
Not only does Dave like to help out his employees, but his community benefits from his help as well. Both of his green cleaning Maid Brigade offices participate in Cleaning for a Reason and the Veterans Program.
