We are the owners of Maid Brigade of NW Houston, Jim & Susan Fordice. Both of us hail from the Midwest - Jim from Iowa and Susie from South Dakota. We lived in St. Louis, Los Angeles, and Chicago before relocating to Houston, TX more than 20 years ago. Our non-work time is spent with family. We are big fans of our grown children and enjoy every minute possible with them. Soccer, baseball, lacrosse, and other activities with our grandchildren keep us busy on weekends. Our family, also, includes 4 dogs and a cat. There is never a dull moment which is just fine with us.
We became franchisees out of a desire to control our own future. Jim's corporate employment brought us to Houston, and there was always the concern that it could take us elsewhere without warning. Here is where we wanted to be and no longer subject to the whim of an employer. Jim's background in selling franchises and working with franchisees to attain and sustain profitability was the key driver behind our desire to own a franchise. Maid Brigade of NW Houston was founded in 1999, and we are proud of our 16 years of service in the community through the business as well as our local engagement and philanthropic endeavors.
Jim is a member of both Level One and Level Two Officers Clubs within Maid Brigade. Additionally, Jim was awarded the Blue Angel – Top Gun Award for top performance in Level One in 2006 and 2008. Our office has also earned the Service of Excellence award for Outstanding Customer Service for many years and has been recognized for our outstanding contributions to our local community. Our staff has joined us on weekends with Habitat for Humanity. We also clean homes pro bono for Cleaning for a Reason, Habitat for Humanity, Helping a Hero.org, A Home for a Hero, and Operation Finally Home.
