Entrepreneur Magazine Taps Chem-Dry For Its Latest Best of the Best List
Prestigious ranking takes top brands from the invaluable Franchise 500 rankings and further highlights what makes them a best buy
After 30+ years, Chem-Dry cleaning franchise is a pretty regular fixture on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list. And if someone misses that issue, now there’s Entrepreneur’s follow up, the annual Best of the Best issue, to review.
“As with the predecessor Franchise 500 roster, this new list calls attention to what makes a brand stand out, and really highlights why Chem-Dry continues to grow and expand around the world,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
Annual rankings boost brand visibility for Chem-Dry Cleaning Franchise
“After the year we’ve all had, our team is very excited to keep our Entrepreneur ‘streak’ going,” Smith says. “We work hard every day to ensure that every Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owner has everything at hand to build a growing, successful business. That means best-in-class marketing support to R&D on new and exciting products and services, such as our MicroPro Shield sanitizing service, to meet residential and corporate customers where they are.”
The Best of the Best issue, which Entrepreneur says captures millions of print readers as well as a huge online and mobile audience, makes that point. It calls out Chem-Dry’s low entry costs and unique capabilities as major reasons why it’s both a legacy brand as well as one with new offerings all the time.
Over forty years of innovation and advancement
One reason why Entrepreneur remains bullish on Chem-Dry is the brand’s constant evolution. In addition to MicroPro Shield, which debuted at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chem-Dry has also added dryer vent and air duct cleaning, as well as wood floor cleaning, in recent years.
“We add new services, and do it in a very thorough fashion,” Smith says. “We have more than 50 green-certified offerings, and every time we renovate our equipment, it’s to make it smaller and lighter and better for the environment. It’s good for our planet as well as being more accessible to even more clients. The new items also generate inquiries and in turn, new business. It’s a win-win situation for franchise owners.”
