With 123,000 businesses in metro Houston counted in the most recent census figures, Stratus Building Solutions sees ample opportunity to grow its commercial janitorial services franchise.

As Stratus Building Solutions continues to grow the number of clients in the Houston area, the company has launched an expansion campaign to add 15 to 25 franchisees in by mid-2018 said Greg Fishman, the company's master franchisee for the Houston market.

The company now has 65 franchisees in the Houston area.

Stratus has 1,500 franchisees and 28 regional offices. In 2016, the company expanded into Canada, where it plans to establish regional corporate offices early in 2017.
