Chem-Dry Franchise Opportunity Gets Noticed in Australia
A mobile brand that works well in most countries and cultures has allowed Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners to build thriving businesses around the world
Whether you’re in Alabama or Australia, when you’re looking for an affordable small business to own and operate, the fundamentals don’t change. Low entry costs, a valued service, and the opportunity to scale up quickly are just a few of those.
And thanks to positive numbers behind those questions and many more, there is positive media coverage popping up advocating the Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise opportunity all around the world, including a recent Franchise Business piece that dove into the Australian home-services franchise landscape.
Low investment, high returns
The article explored the different facets of home-related goods and services, so that readers got a comprehensive look at the types of business homeowners most often interact with. When it came to Chem-Dry, the coverage was very flattering:
“With more than 3,500 franchise partners worldwide, established over 35 years of operation, Chem-Dry is one most successful franchise businesses on the market, and what’s more, it’s Australian,” the article reported. “Since launching [in Australia] in 1986, the healthy and green alternative to traditional carpet cleaning companies has grown exponentially, now cleaning more carpet and surfaces than any other business … [and] Chem-Dry franchisees are not required to have any experience in the sector, merely a drive to work hard, strong customer service skills and an Australian driver’s license.”
An evergreen service with ongoing demand
Another reason Chem-Dry franchises keep popping up around the world is that it’s a business with a demand that’s ongoing, not seasonal. And because homeowners value affordability, consistency and quality, once they have used a Chem-Dry franchise team they are likely to have them back for one of the many other services Chem-Dry now offers.
“People want an affordable, environmentally friendly and dependable solution for carpet, floor, rug, countertop, tile and leather cleaning,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “We offer all that, plus dryer vents, air ducts and more. Our whole-home suite of services is designed to appeal to consumers anywhere and allow franchise owners wherever they are to generate more estimates, book more business and increase ticket totals on every call.”
