Chem-Dry Franchise Signs California Franchise Expansion Deals
Chem-Dry expansion in California
Chem-Dry continues expanding its footprint in California, with new franchisees opening in Sacramento and the greater San Bernardino area. The nation’s favorite carpet cleaning franchising now has more than 250 franchises in operation across California.
Heading up the recent California development for Chem-Dry in California are franchisees Cliff Mastrolia and Dada Ojeisekhoba. Mastrolia’s Chem-Dry territory covers Greater Sacramento, including Placer and El Dorado counties, and Ojeisekhoba’s territory includes San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
Mastrolia is a Sacramento-area local with a military background and experience in management and sales, most recently working as a bail bondsman for 10 years. Ojeisekhoba is in Orange County and has worked in the cleaning industry for more than 20 years before finding Chem-Dry. Both franchise owners say they saw potential for growth in their service areas and chose the brand due to its extensive recognition for quality over the past 45 years.
Growth during the pandemic
Chem-Dry is on the fast-track for growth in 2022, with 42 signed agreements year-to-date and a goal of adding 70 franchises by the end of the year. In addition to continued growth in California, the legendary franchise continues to add new franchise owners across the United States and around the world. They join owners who were able to remain busy during the pandemic, thanks to Chem-Dry’s valuable suite of healthy-home cleaning services, proving that this is a business model that works in any economy.
“Chem-Dry is a brand that has proven its durability,” says Ed Quinlan, president of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “The unprecedented challenges of the past two years were met head-on by our franchise family, who were able to continue supporting their residential and commercial customers in a very trying time. The result was even more customer loyalty, and business stability that is now fueling even further growth.”
A franchise worth celebrating
The California growth echoes Chem-Dry’s expanding presence in other communities across America, as well as in Europe and other parts of the world. Entrepreneurs flock to the brand’s remarkable flexibility and multiple positives:
- Home-based operations, so no expensive commercial real estate lease
- Flat monthly fee — no punishment for success
- Set your own hours, grow at your own pace
- A variety of equipment packages to suit any size operation
- A large and growing suite of environmentally friendly goods and services
All told, Chem-Dry remains the brand it was in the mid-1970s, when its Hot Carbonating Extraction process revolutionized carpet cleaning. Safe for kids and pets, quick-drying and no lingering odor were game-changers then, and remain so now.
“People invite Chem-Dry into their homes and businesses because they know we are committed to an eco-friendly, sensible way of cleaning carpets. What they may not know is that we can clean area rugs, upholstery, leather furniture, granite surfaces, and much more. When they find out, they are thrilled — who wouldn’t want ‘one-stop shopping’ for healthy, whole-home services from a trusted vendor? It’s a guaranteed way for franchise owners to add to ticket totals in each job, and build in more frequent, recurring business.”
New entrepreneurs still welcome
Even as more Chem-Dry franchises open in California and elsewhere, it’s important to note that there are many territories in communities everywhere. One good reason to look at Chem-Dry now? The red-hot real estate market in many communities. That spells an opportunity for franchise owners to not only grow business with homeowners looking to relocate and needing cleaning, it’s also a great time to partner with real-estate agents and other professionals who value Chem-Dry’s full suite of services.
For that reason alone, and many more, Quinlan says this is the perfect time to take advantage of all the services and support that Chem-Dry offers franchise owners.
“People have been moving out of the larger hubs in California, like Los Angeles and San Francisco, which presents a great opportunity for Cliff and Dada’s service areas,” Quinlan says. “We are thrilled to have them on our team as we continue to increase Chem-Dry’s brand presence on the West Coast. We look forward to many other entrepreneurs seeing their success and joining the ever-growing Chem-Dry family.”
