The Waco, Texas-based handyman and home cleaning franchise company Sometimes Spouse has ceased franchising, according to CEO and Co-founder Christy Ogle.
“Sometimes Spouse does not currently sell franchises,” said Christy Ogle. “Sometimes Spouses are company owned.”
Ogle stated that the company has not sold a franchise since 2018.
Sometimes Spouse was founded in 2013 by Max & Christy Ogle and their friend Crystal (Sherrard) Stewart, and started selling franchises in 2015. They reportedly sold as many as 56 franchises throughout Texas and four nearby states.
In 2018, Entrepreneur magazine named Sometimes Spouse #62 on its list of 100 top franchises that had been franchising for less than 5 years.
In 2019, Sometimes Spouse abandoned its model of having local franchise owners serving each community and is now fielding phone calls centrally. Sometimes Spouse is now subbing out cleaning and handyman work to local independent contractors.
Sometimes Spouse has replaced the “Franchise Opportunities” section of its website with a page seeking independent contractors (Managing Partners) willing to coordinate subcontracted home repair and cleaning jobs in their area.
Sometimes Spouse is also promoting low-cost ($97) multilevel marketing (MLM)-style seminar, CDs and coaching program for people who want to start an independent (non-franchised) handyman or home cleaning business.
