Meet Elizabeth Lamar: Superstar Franchisee in Huntsville, AL

Liz worked for about 10 years as a manager for a major restaurant brand, working about 80 hours a week! She came to a point in her career where her quality of life was not poor due to the extreme stress and heavy workload inside the restaurant. She was later introduced to Two Maids & A Mop by a family member. At the time the company was just starting out and so she was hired as a corporate store manager.

Liz says that she took a chance with Two Maids & A Mop but the CEO’s enthusiasm for the future was so contagious that she wanted to give it a shot. As a corporate employee she helped open and manage quite a few stores, but after she met her now husband she decided she needed to settle down and ended up running a corporate location in Huntsville, Alabama.

After Two Maids & A Mop started franchising, Liz watched all the corporate stores one by one convert into franchise locations, until her office was the last one left. That’s when she took an even bigger leap of faith and bought the location with the assistance of a capital partner. In this interview, Liz shares how she is able to have the most profitable location in the Two Maids system and what she watches to keep her profitability up.
