Jackson Business Opportunity: Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Franchise Targets Jackson, MS, for Growth
Jackson business opportunity is huge for potential Chem-Dry franchise partners
Chem-Dry is already the world?s largest carpet cleaning franchise, but there is still a lot of room to grow. Since 1977, we?ve become the market leader by providing superior cleaning that is safe and healthy. In 2014, Chem-Dry is focusing its expansion efforts on a handful of cities where there is the biggest opportunity for a new business owner to grow.
Jackson, MS, is one of those cities. The Jackson business opportunity is huge for a professionally run carpet cleaning franchise. According to market research firm Dun & Bradstreet, homeowners and businesses already spend about $20 million a year on carpet cleaning in Jackson. Chem-Dry is looking for the right franchise partner to grow the brand and delight customers using the environmentally friendly and patented processes that have set Chem-Dry apart from competitors. Nationwide, Chem-Dry has captured more than 7% of the market share for carpet cleaning ? twice as much as its nearest competitor. A Chem-Dry owner who captured just 5% of the Jackson market would have a million-dollar business.
?Jackson offers a huge expansion opportunity for Chem-Dry ? it?s a great market for our services ? and it?s a great chance for an ambitious entrepreneur to invest in a concept that has proven successful for decades,? says D?wayne Tanner, vice president of franchise development for Chem-Dry. ?Carpet cleaning is an industry that often flies under the radar, but the market is huge, and you can grow a great business as long as you have the right approach, systems and techniques to manage the business and make customers happy.?
Chem-Dry was recently named a top franchise opportunity for the 26th year in a row by Entrepreneur magazine, and it is also the magazine?s top-rated carpet cleaning franchise.
Here?s why it?s a great opportunity:
A proven path to success
David Tomberlin has owned Mountainview Chem-Dry in Birmingham, Ala., since 2004. He has up to five vans running at any given time, employs eight people, and continues to expand. As a multi-territory owner, he has locked down the rights to the Chem-Dry brand in Birmingham, and he says that his business ? and Chem-Dry ? keeps growing stronger. Birmingham is demographically very similar to Jackson.
?If someone buys in and follows the systems Chem-Dry has in place, there is no reason they shouldn?t be successful,? he says. ?There are a lot of advantages of building a business with Chem-Dry ? coaching opportunities, training on marketing and help with operations. And the other Chem-Dry owners all over the country are a big help.?
A well-known brand
Chem-Dry has more than 2,000 franchise locations in the United States, which provides unmatched brand presence. As people move around the country, they know the Chem-Dry name. There are already carpet cleaning customers in Jackson who love Chem-Dry; they just don?t have a Chem-Dry to hire ? yet.
Patented tools, superior cleaning methods, training and support
Chem-Dry uses hot carbonating extraction to clean carpets without the need for phosphates or detergents. The process uses 80% less water than steam cleaning, so it doesn?t soak carpet pads and dries in 1-2 hours instead of 1-2 days. The moisture from traditional steam cleaning can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew, and detergents can trigger allergies and leave behind residue that attracts dirt ? causing stains to reappear a few weeks after cleaning. Chem-Dry doesn?t leave a residue behind ? which keeps carpets safe and healthy and also results in a long-lasting clean.
We have built a reputation as a trusted, respected brand due to outstanding products, such as our Pet Urine & Odor Removal (P.U.R.T.) treatment formulated not to merely mask scents but to attack the chemical bonds that cause dried urine crystals to cling to surfaces, destroying the source of the stain and smell. We also have a range of solutions to clean tile and stone floors, returning them to new condition. Chem-Dry has achieved the highest customer satisfaction and customer repeat levels in the industry. And we don?t rest on laurels. Since 1977, we have been committed to R&D, which has enabled us to develop proprietary solutions and patented equipment that are the foundation of the success of our franchisees? business.
Franchisees are trained to provide exceptional service, and to run an efficient business. You can learn about our training and support here.
