Chem-Dry Wins Prestigious Global Franchise Award
Chem-Dry celebrates 45 years of creating opportunity and success for entrepreneurs
Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet, upholstery and hard-surface floor cleaning franchise, has won a 2022 Global Franchise Award from Global Franchise magazine.
The awards were presented during the recent International Franchise Expo in San Diego. Chem-Dry, which has a longstanding, worldwide presence thanks to its suite of whole-home cleaning services, won in the Best Property Maintenance category. The respected, 45-year-old brand faced strong competition from other well-known names in a wide range of service areas, including cleaning and janitorial, flooring, building and maintenance.
Continued expansion, proven business model highlighted
Chem-Dry took top honors by demonstrating to a highly regarded panel of judges that it is continuing to expand its global footprint, maintains strong and supportive relationships with franchise owners, innovates in its marketing and promotions, and is a strong supporter of international franchising.
“Chem-Dry has been helping entrepreneurs in the United States and around the world find financial independence, while building a business that is highly of value in their communities,” says Joe Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development. “We have been expanding around the world for almost 5 decades by providing the long-term support that franchise owners need to build a stable, growing business that can thrive in any culture and economic climate. We are honored by this recognition, which showcases our business opportunity as well as the hard work of our global franchise-owner network.”
Low entry costs, home-based business model a success
Chem-Dry continues to grow its global footprint thanks to a business model that easily adapts to any climate and culture. Because Chem-Dry franchise owners can start at their own pace, and work from home, there’s no expensive initial outlay for costly commercial real estate space or storage facilities. That, plus a wide variety of services means this is a business that can be customized to unique local needs.
“Chem-Dry floor cleaning franchise owners are very different from country to country,” Manuszak says. “In some markets, they may focus heavily on wood floors. In others, they do a booming business on carpets and upholstery. Because there are so many services that are valued by consumers and profitable for franchise owners, Chem-Dry has been able to create a unique presence wherever it goes around the world.”
Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise, with more than 2,500 franchises in more than 55 countries, serving 11,000 homes and businesses a day. Chem-Dry is a top-rated global franchise with unrivaled franchise service and support. 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.
