John and Kris Dostal have purchased The Maids of Northwest Omaha, a residential cleaning franchise in business since 1979.
Kris Dostal, a self-employed cleaner for 13 years was thrilled when she learned the business, located at 3802 N. 108th St. in Omaha was for sale.
"I’ve always wanted to apply my skills in owning and operating my own business," said Dostal who took the helm last month.
To prepare for acquiring the business, Dostal spent nearly two weeks completing an extensive training program at The Maids International in Omaha, the corporate headquarters of The Maids franchise system. Dostal said her husband John will provide business support and assistance on evenings and weekends.
The business, which services Northwest Omaha and the surrounding communities of Bennington and Elkhorn, employs uniformed and trained four-member teams and utilize state-of-the-art cleaning equipment.
