Chem-Dry’s Low Overhead Makes It An Ideal First Business
From flexible scheduling to home-based operations, a Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise is the answer for entrepreneurs ready to venture out on their own
There’s a reason there are so many magazines, websites, workshops and seminars dedicated to entrepreneurship: many people are eager to own their own business and reap the independence and financial rewards it brings. What they don’t want is to launch a business and suffer, due to high overhead and other unexpected costs that can derail the fledgling venture in those crucial early months. But, Chem-Dry’s low overhead lets you launch that business with less worry!
Now, as the U.S. economy continues to expand, and people are dusting off those business-ownership dreams, and they’re looking for a low-cost, flexible opportunity. Hundreds of them are finding — and opening — a Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise.
Franchise owner controls initial investment
Why? For starters, a Chem-Dry franchise owner is in control from the outset. As a business that can be run full- or part-time, Chem-Dry has many different access points for getting started. That means a new franchise owner can work with a startup cost that suits their budget.”
“Our estimated initial investment is wide, because we work with people who are at different stages in their lives,” says D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “A big factor is the equipment package, for instance. Not every new franchise owner will want all the equipment; they may want to ramp up to certain types of jobs. We can easily work with that kind of flexibility, and before they know it they’ll be offering our full roster of services to eager customers.”
Want Scalability? No problem.
Scalability also carries over into business operations. A Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise can be run from home, so no need to buy, build or lease expensive office space. Chem-Dry is designed to start slow and build up as franchise owners achieve more comfort with the systems and processes.
“Someone can start out small, and then, as their business takes off through their own advertising and marketing effort, or through our national campaigns, they can look at adding staff, or moving into their ownership role full time,” Tanner says. “For almost 50 years, that’s how Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchises have been growing. Owners are amazed at how fast, and how easily, they’ve been able to scale up.”
