Chem-Dry Scores Two Mentions In Inaugural Franchise Help Rankings
World’s largest carpet cleaning franchise is highlighted as a worthy investment by prestigious franchise portal
The team at Franchise Help has released its first-ever Top 20 franchise rankings, and Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owners shouldn’t be surprised to see their logo atop two of the listings.
The rankings fell into five categories: Overall, Emerging, Established, Growing and Profitability. Chem-Dry appeared on both the overall and established lists, showing its strength as a brand that has a broad appeal, as well as one with strong roots that serve both customers and franchise owners well.
Rankings used multiple evaluation tools
For its first outing into rankings, the team at Franchise Help had to work through more than 100 different brands who entered the competition. According to Franchise Help, reviewers dug into the following factors in those assessments:
- Cost & Fees: Liquid Capital Requirement, Franchise Fee, Royalty fees
- Size & Growth: Growth rate, closures, years in operation
- Disclosure: Item 19 disclosures
- Support: Marketing Support, Operational Support, Training
Other factors were considered as well, so that the most well-rounded picture could be provided to Franchise Help’s readers.
Ranking joins long list of recognitions
Getting this kind of notice is an everyday occurrence for Chem-Dry, and also something that never gets ho-hum, notes Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
“There are a lot of magazines, websites and blogs out there taking a look at the ever-growing number of franchises,” Smith says. “There are more brands, and types, than ever before. Chem-Dry stands out because we’re a legacy brand that never stops reinventing itself, and also for our focus on serving both our end customers as well as our franchise owners to the best of our ability. We are pleased to be included with the other fine brands that Franchise Help singled out for their rankings.”
