Franchise Owners Add Chem-Dry To Related Businesses For Maximum Profit
By servicing rental property and other businesses that center around residential and commercial site operation, Chem-Dry plugs in neatly to existing portfolios
It’s an accepted fact in the business world that the more services a company can offer, the more likely it is to generate more work, and thus more profit. That’s certainly true for Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners, who can market everything from carpet and area rug cleaning to services for tile floors, upholstery, leather and even granite surfaces.
Some franchise owners, however, also maximize their Chem-Dry operations by tying them into other businesses they might own, such as janitorial services, home renovators or residential and commercial real estate sales or rental operations.
Property owners, managers want predictable cleaning costs
For real estate agents who want the properties they’re showing to be spotless, as well as rental-property managers and owners who need to clean and refresh following a tenant’s moving out, a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise offers affordability and predictability for what can be a major expense.
“Often people who work in real estate need to clean up a property quickly, and they pay for that in rush fees,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “If they own a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise, then they have a team ready to go whenever they need work done, whether that’s a single room or an entire house, apartment or even office building. They get accessibility to a needed service, as well as predictable, affordable costs for their own needs. What’s more, they also have a business that is bringing in a significant revenue stream while saving costs to the rest of their portfolio.”
Cleaners, renovators benefit from umbrella services
Other business owners who can use a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise to maximize earnings are those who provide home or business cleaning services, as well as home renovators.
“Companies who provide cleaning often aren’t equipped to provide deep-dive services such as carpet or upholstery cleaning, or leather and granite refreshing,” Doug says. “Owning a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise means that they can provide a much more comprehensive menu of services, which is of value to their clients and helps bring in more business. Renovators succeed with Chem-Dry because having our services on hand whenever they need them means they can finish their work faster and get the properties they are renovating back on the market and looking great. And just like the property owners and operators already mentioned, Chem-Dry gives these entrepreneurs a business that provides its own revenue stream while enhancing their existing operations.”
