Chem-Dry Starts 2021 Strong As New Franchises Come Off The Sidelines
Pent-up demand for cleaning pairs up nicely with Chem-Dry’s full and growing roster of offerings that meet both residential and business needs
Spring cleaning has never felt more needed than in 2021. A year of working from home has consumers eager to clear and declutter while businesses that have been closed need a thorough cleaning reset as employees prepare to return. In both cases and many more, new Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners stand ready to answer the call. “That’s because the iconic brand is onboarding new carpet cleaning franchise owners at a brisk clip,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
Homeowners value wide menu of service options
“When the shutdowns began in March 2020, a lot of people wanted their homes cleaned,” Smith says. “And now they are looking around and realizing that a year has passed, and everything — floors, countertops, area rugs, furniture, and furniture — needs attention again. But now they are getting ready to go back into the office, so they need some help.”
“That’s one area of growth for new Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchise owners,” Smith says, pointing out that even in 2020’s slowest periods, many entrepreneurs saw the value in owning a Chem-Dry franchise. “So they got on board to be ready for everything that’s happening now.”
Multi-residence & business sites are lucrative clients for cleaning franchise owners
Those new Chem-Dry franchise owners also are poised to earn business from retirement homes, hotels, apartment and condo complexes, and office parks, just to name a few non-single family home prospects. “There, too, they should find a lot of business,” Smith says.
“Our new franchise partners are receiving the same kind of training around marketing and outreach that has helped Chem-Dry be a standout brand for over 40 years,” Smith says. “And from what we can see, they are putting it to good use as they capitalize on the many revenue opportunities in their communities.”
