Chem-Dry Named To Franchise Direct’s Top Global Franchise List
Chem-Dry again named to Franchise Direct ranking
After 45 years, Chem-Dry has become one of the best-known whole-home cleaning franchises anywhere. For proof, look no further than the Franchise Direct Top 100 Global Franchise listings, where Chem-Dry is a perennial favorite.
Chem-Dry sits at No. 67 on the 2022 list, which includes some of the planet’s best-known business names. How did this legendary brand get here? Franchise Direct’s selection criteria include system size, franchise longevity, and support methods for franchise owners. The evaluator’s proprietary ranking formula also goes beyond size and finances to look at additional elements, such as domestic and international market expansion, expansion strategies, best practices in franchise owner support and training, environmental policy, and social responsibility.
One of the Franchise Industry’s Best Buys
“Entrepreneurs worldwide look at Franchise Direct’s Top 100 Global Franchise rankings, as well as their many other reports, because they know the homework has been done for them,” says Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry. “Rankings like this, which are an exhaustive study of not just our past and current growth, but also our future strategies in the international marketplace, show what a well-rounded business opportunity Chem-Dry is for any entrepreneur in any country.”
“Franchise Direct’s ranking formula brings in business practices beyond size and financials that set Chem-Dry apart,” Quinlan adds. “They see our strong commitment to comprehensive, ongoing franchise owner training, as well as our robust research and development processes that continue to expand our line of environmentally friendly cleaning products, not to mention reducing the weight and overall energy footprint of our equipment. The Franchise Direct approach really showcases the whole Chem-Dry package, which is why it’s even more meaningful for us, and for all of our franchise owners around the world, to be on this important list.”
Franchise Direct studies environmental impact
Franchise Direct officials also take a close look at how franchises react to changing social and economic conditions in their marketplaces. That is something that Chem-Dry prides itself on.
“You simply cannot take the business model that works well in the United States and just drop it into a country in the Middle East or Europe,” Quinlan explains. “Chem-Dry, over its 45-year history, has taken the time to study the countries it expands into, working with the franchise owners there to find out what their pain points might be — and then addressing the issues rather than trying to work around them. Often we retool our marketing and advertising materials to meet local customs, for example. Chem-Dry has found a way to take a very successful, environmentally friendly business and export it around the globe. Franchise Direct sees that, as do our franchise owners all around the world.”
