Chem-Dry Poised For Strong Global Growth In 2019
Interest in new markets coupled with expansion in others means the Chem-Dry opportunity will reach even more potential franchise owners and customers
Chem-Dry cleaning franchise operators are serving clients and building financial independence in 55 countries worldwide. That number will climb in 2019, as more entrepreneurs around the world capitalize on the opportunity Chem-Dry presents to become Master Franchise owners and expand the brand even further.
“Last year we entered into Cambodia and India, just to name two countries with huge potential for Chem-Dry,” says Joseph Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development. “In both cases, we signed Master Franchise agreements with experienced business professionals who already have begun to operate their own locations where they live, as well as branch out and find sub-franchise owners in other markets.”
Master franchise model successful in diverse markets
One reason entrepreneurs on multiple continents are eager to open a Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise is the Master Franchise model itself. It allows the franchise owner to either operate his or her own franchises throughout the country, or to sub-franchise the opportunity to others and then provide them with Chem-Dry’s world-class training and support to ensure success.
“Chem-Dry is a brand that brings value, no matter what the individual market may be,” Manuszak says. “People around the world value having a local, trusted vendor who can offer whole-home cleaning services that are environmentally sound. It’s been a winning formula for Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners in the United States and abroad for more than 40 years.”
European markets express strong interest in brand
The coming months will likely see Chem-Dry grow in many European countries and South America, as well as continue its strong market penetration in Asia, Smith adds.
“There is a great deal of interest in Chem-Dry around the world, particularly in countries where there are not a lot of options for carpet and floor cleaning, let alone the specialized work Chem-Dry can do on granite surfaces, leather, upholstery and more,” Manuszak says. “Our suite of services, which continues to expand, is of great interest to entrepreneurs who know their markets.”
Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise with nearly 3,500 franchises in 55 countries, serving 11,000 homes and businesses a day. Chem-Dry has been Entrepreneur magazine’s top-rated carpet cleaning franchise for 31 straight years. The Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction process delivers a faster-drying, deeper and more environmentally friendly clean that appeals to home and business owners. In addition to carpet and area rugs, Chem-Dry provides cleaning and renewal services for tile and stone, granite countertops, leather and upholstery, air ducts and dryer vents.
