Chem-Dry Franchise Owners Create Jobs In Their Communities
The ability to mentor and grow good employees is a major benefit to owning and operating a multifaceted business such as a Chem-Dry franchise
Entrepreneurs love everything about owning and operating a business. Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners are no different, and when it comes to hiring, developing and advancing the best people, they are excelling.
Chem-Dry gives employees many opportunities, and franchise owners are adept at helping their staff develop and advance. From technicians who learn every aspect of cleaning and renewal to customer service representatives who obtain sales and marketing savvy, Chem-Dry helps communities by providing strong jobs with a future.
Business growth means staff growth
“People who own a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise don’t believe in punching a clock or just getting through the day, and they surround themselves with like-minded people,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “Franchise owners believe in taking advantage of every opportunity, and they embed that spirit into their team.”
That translates into a small company with growth potential, so not only does a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise create jobs when it launches, it also provides opportunities for more people to join the team as the business grows and develops. The more business, the more staff needed — a great cycle that repeats itself continually.
Jobs that create advancement opportunities
And these aren’t ‘one and done’ jobs, either. A new technician will learn the science as well as the skills behind Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction carpet-cleaning process, and he or she will also pick up skills around other services like upholstery cleaning, tile cleaning, as well as leather and granite renewal. Back in the office, someone handling client booking and service inquiries will learn not just high-quality customer service, but also how to upsell services and add value to each client’s order.
“A Chem-Dry cleaning franchise is an incubator for good business practices,” Doug says. “Everyone on the team learns how to operate a small business, as well as how to provide great service. Many will go on to open their own Chem-Dry cleaning franchise, or take these skills into the workforce and become valued employees in another endeavor. Either way, what we teach, and they learn, at Chem-Dry enhances the community’s workforce.”
