Chem-Dry Franchise Continues Strong International Growth
The Master Franchise model allows overseas entrepreneurs to efficiently and affordably bring Chem-Dry’s services to their countries
For more than 40 years, Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners have been starting and growing their businesses across the United States. They also have fanned out across Canada and, since the mid-1980s, also into more than 50 countries around the world.
That growth, domestically and abroad, is continuing more rapidly than ever before. For four years running, Chem-Dry has opened more than 100 new franchise locations across the United States and Canada. Through its Master Franchise model, it continues to grow the brand’s industry-leading and award-winning services worldwide.
Master Franchise model creates opportunity
A Master Franchise owner is a businessperson who controls licensing for a region, or an entire country. He or she then develops Chem-Dry operations within that territory, with full marketing, operational and training support from the Chem-Dry international office.
“The Chem-Dry business model works as well overseas as it does in the United States, which has led to our continued global expansion,” says Joe Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development. “Our Master Franchise operators report strong sales and high profitability, and we are confident that we can replicate their success in the countries where we are seeking to establish a presence.”
Growth happening all around the globe
Chem-Dry has recently entered into Master Franchise agreements in Australia and New Zealand, and is actively recruiting entrepreneurs in Great Britain, France and western Europe. Growth in the Caribbean is under way, and South America is targeted for expansion, as well.
“We are the largest brand out there now, and we’re still growing,” Joe says. “Over the past 30 years, Chem-Dry has successfully proven itself in markets everywhere from southeast Asia to the Caribbean, and now we are speaking with successful business professionals who can meet our eligibility requirements, and who want to take the Chem-Dry cleaning franchise brand and grow it in their markets.”
Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise with nearly 3,500 franchises in 52 countries, serving 10,000 homes and businesses a day.
