Chem-Dry Makes Entrepreneur’s 2019 Top 50 Franchises For Under $100K
Ranking highlights brand’s ongoing value for first-time franchise owners who want to start small and grow their own business over their own timetable
A Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise is a great way to launch a small-business ownership career — and it’s affordable. That’s the take Entrepreneur magazine has, which is why Chem-Dry has been listed on its 2019 Top 50 Franchises For Under $100,000 list.
The listing will appear in the magazine’s September 2019 issue, and Chem-Dry claimed the No. 15 spot. More than 3 million readers will learn about the brand’s many differentiators, which include the ability to operate from a home office as well as work a flexible set of hours based on desired growth.
Annual rankings validate brand’s success
Chem-Dry is no stranger to Entrepreneur rankings, having been atop their list of floor cleaning franchises for more than 30 years. That’s on the magazine’s widely read Franchise 500 list, which like this ranking highlights what makes a brand stand out, says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
“It’s always nice to be recognized for doing something well,” Smith says. “We work every day to build the support structure to allow every Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owner to achieve the business success they desire. Thanks to their hard work implementing our many and growing range of services, we have all built a brand we can be very proud of.”
New services ensure continued growth
While the new ranking points out Chem-Dry’s low entry costs and unique capabilities, it’s worth noting that the brand also has introduced several major new services, including air duct cleaning and wood floor cleaning, to its roster in the last year alone. That means more opportunities and higher ticket totals for owners.
“We continue to find ways to allow Chem-Dry franchise owners to build outward from their core business,” Smith says. “We do it in a way that lets them add on new services if and when they choose to; we don’t force them to take everything we offer. Chem-Dry is very much about building a customized business that lets franchise owners work where, and when, they choose. Over time, most choose to operate the full line, because they see the value and revenue in offering as much to their customers as possible.”
