Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle Reed-Spitzer.
When Michelle Reed-Spitzer enrolled at Hodges University in Naples FL in 1995, her first assignment for her Professor, Dr. Gene Landrum (founder of the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant franchise), was to write a business plan. At that time, she was cleaning homes to earn extra money for school — so she wrote about the business that would eventually become Michelle’s Classy Cleaning.
Within four years of its inception, Michelle converted her company into a national franchise for MaidPro, becoming its #1 revenue producing franchise out of 250-plus locations and a multi-million-dollar business. Today, she and her 130-plus employees serve clients in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, Broward and Dade counties with six locations covering all of South Florida.
Michelle and her team are proud of what they have accomplished, continuing to grow as both a successful and respected business, but also one with a clear mission… Michelle sees her business as much more than an average cleaning company scrubbing floors… She says “A clean and organized home doesn’t just save time – it changes lives. We are really in the business to improve the Quality of Lives in so many ways and this is my passion!”

I am a proud owner of MaidPro. You can see that in the video’s I have shared with you. What I am most proud of is our mission statement. We see ourselves as a whole lot more than an average cleaning company scrubbing floors and cleaning toilets. We serve a greater purpose. Our mission is “We are improving the quality of people’s lives” by taking care of their cleaning needs. Here are a few examples by what I mean by this.
We help a working mom’s who have a huge “to do list” and can’t seem to get everything done by giving her some time back and reducing her stress so she can be a better mom and spend more quality time w/ her family.
We help reduce the stress of a husband and wife and may save marriages.
We help an elderly person live independently in their home a little bit longer.
We help someone who may be suffering from an illness or injury focus on healing instead of worrying about their household chores.
And much more…
I am also very proud of my amazing team. Our success has been a team effort over the years making us the #1 revenue producing MaidPro Franchise out of over 250-plus locations and a multi-million-dollar business.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Some of my favorite childhood memories was spending time over the summer on my grandparents farm in Champaign, Illinois. My brother and cousins and I spent a lot of time on the farm. We had a lot of fun together from building forts in the haylofts to riding Misty the pony. We had an amazing experience on the farm.
