3 Reasons Why Chem-Dry Is The Franchise To Buy In 2021
Own a year-round floor cleaning franchise that provides a vital service to home and business owners, and that continues to innovate and evolve to meet new challenges
If 2020 has taught entrepreneurs anything, it’s that a business with multiple offerings and that has valuable services can survive even in challenging times. That’s why so many have become Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owners.
So, why Chem-Dry, and why now? There’s simply no better time. Here’s why.
An affordable small business opportunity
A Chem-Dry franchise owner’s initial investment starts at only $67,645. To help with that, Chem-Dry offers low-cost, in-house financing, and the loan is interest- and payment-free until the fourth month of operation. And because Chem-Dry is a member of the International Franchise Association and participates in that organization’s VetFran Program, U.S. military veterans and first responders also can qualify for a 10% discount on their initial license.
And there’s more! Chem-Dry franchise owners pay a flat $408.60 franchise fee per month, regardless of revenue. Chem-Dry doesn’t believe in penalizing franchise owners for success. And because Chem-Dry is a home-based business, no expensive commercial storefront or warehouse space is needed — another immediate start-up savings.
Upsell possibilities on every call
Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners have a wealth of products and services to sell. That’s thanks to an R&D department that has been innovating for over 40 years and continues to introduce high-quality, in-demand products all the time. In addition to such recent valuable upsells as dryer-vent and air-duct cleaning, Chem-Dry’s whole-home suite of services also includes:
- MicroPro Shield disinfection and protection
- Upholstery cleaning
- Area rug cleaning
- Tile and stone cleaning
- Marble and granite countertop renewal
- Leather cleaning
- Pet stain and odor remediation/removal
- Dryer vent cleaning
- Air duct cleaning
- Wood floor cleaning and renewal
- VCT (commercial flooring) cleaning
Result? An unparalleled ability to sell add-on services and boost ticket totals with every piece of new and recurring business.
Chem-Dry is meeting the COVID-19 moment
A prime example of a timely addition to the Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owner’s suite of services is MicroPro Shield, a two-step process offering disinfection with 90-day protection. This two-step process uses a very strong disinfectant during the initial cleaning; then, an antimicrobial creates a microscopic layer of nanospikes that performs for up to 90 days to inhibit the growth of microbes.
MicroPro Shield has become a hugely popular program, now that home and business owners understandably are more demanding than ever when it comes to safe, effective cleaning and cleaning products in their homes. And safety will be top of mind throughout 2021 as well, so it’s just one more way that Chem-Dry franchise owners will have the services that keep the phones ringing, and the revenue coming in throughout 2021 and beyond.
Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise with more than 3,000 franchises in more than 55 countries, serving 11,000 homes and businesses a day. Chem-Dry has been Entrepreneur magazine’s top-rated carpet cleaning franchise for 32 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.
