What Do Nashville Chem-Dry Offices Mean for Franchise Opportunities?
Move will improve access to Chem-Dry training, support, franchise opportunities for people back East
Chem-Dry offers one of the best franchise opportunities in the industry, and hundreds of entrepreneurs have used it to build rewarding, profitable careers for themselves ? especially west of the Rockies, where the majority of our franchises are and where we?ve established our name over 35 years as the nation?s number one carpet cleaner.
Nowadays, the best growth opportunities for Chem-Dry are in the South, Midwest and East Coast, which is why the decision by Chem-Dry?s parent company, Harris Research Inc., to open a regional headquarters in Nashville makes so much sense.
We?re investing more than $1 million in our new, 8,500-square-foot space in The Gulch, a popular mixed-use development district near downtown Nashville. From there, we?ll be able to recruit and train talented, driven entrepreneurs in our target areas more effectively than we could from our original headquarters in Logan, Utah.
Just take a look at Nashville on a map. It?s technically in the South, yes, but it?s remarkably accessible from a whole host of markets. Cities as diverse as Chicago, Atlanta, New Orleans, Tulsa and Charlotte are within reasonable driving distance, and franchise recruits can easily travel by plane from more distant East Coast cities like Miami and Boston. (It helps that Nashville has a great airport.)
The proximity to some of our best growth opportunities will make a big difference in our ability to recruit, train, support and market for franchisees in that part of the country. Logan is great for our franchise owners in Utah, Nevada, Idaho, etc., but it is a bit out of the way for someone from Florida! As always, the profitability of our franchise owners is our primary goal, and having much of Chem-Dry?s operations in the new offices will help us provide better support for our Eastern, Southern and Midwestern franchisees. We?ll keep our Logan office open to serve our franchise owners out West.
This is a substantial move, not just a satellite office opening. Harris Research will move Chem-Dry?s executives, finance and accounting and marketing offices to the new headquarters in the coming weeks, plus some training and franchise administration functions; our call center, research and development and manufacturing centers will remain in Logan. We?re serious about establishing a bi-coastal, national presence because our top-rated franchise system and cleaner, drier, healthier method of cleaning merit that kind of market.
