Image One USA franchise affiliate and military veteran selected as Franchise Business Review 2019 Franchise Rock Star

Ash Gawande, 2019 Franchise Rock Star

Award continues tradition of consistent recognition for the Chicago-based professional commercial cleaning franchise

FRISCO, TEXAS, USA, May 13, 2019 / -- Franchise Business Review has selected Image One commercial cleaning franchise affiliate Ash Gawande as one of its 2019 Franchise Rock Stars.

Franchise Business Review chose Image One Dallas-area franchise owner Ash Gawande from over 27,000 franchisees, representing more than 300 brands. The Rock Stars recognized were nominated by their franchise brand leadership as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community.

“There are so many deserving franchise owners out there who are achieving their dreams of business ownership through franchising,” said Michelle Rowan, President & COO of Franchise Business Review. “It was incredibly difficult to narrow down the list, but in the end, we chose individuals who exemplify the qualities that make the franchising model work: a strong work ethic, leadership, and a real commitment to their business and community. Each one of them is truly a franchise Rock Star.”

Gawande is an Air Force military veteran who spent 20 years in the business world specializing in telecommunications and project management. He operates Image One’s first franchise location in Texas, based in Frisco and servicing the Dallas area with trusted professional commercial cleaning services. In a short period of time, Gawande has expanded the business to reach new clients and spread the Image One brand in his region.

“We’re so happy for Ash and recognize all of the hard work he has put into expanding his business in the Dallas region,” said Image One President and Co-founder Tim Conn. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without people like Ash in our franchise system. Ash’s Franchise Rock Star award underscores both his commitment to our brand and the value we put on supporting franchise owners every step of the way.”

Image One is grateful for the sacrifices military veterans make and provides special incentives for veterans who join their system. Veterans choose the program that is right for them: They can either receive 20 percent off the franchise fee, $5,000 per month in guaranteed business for a year, or a no-interest loan to finance their franchise.

“Image One is like a family,” Gawande said. “The relationship we built, coupled with what I saw in terms of Image One’s system and growth, made the franchise the perfect fit for me. I know that at a moment’s notice my franchisor is available to help me in any given situation.”

Last month, Image One was once again named a Top Low-Cost Franchise system by Franchise Business Review.

Opportunities to grow alongside Image One are available in areas across the United States. Visit and fill out the franchise inquiry form or call 800-223-1985 for more information.
