Chem-Dry Franchise vs. ZeroRes Franchise
As you research ZeroRes franchise ownership, consider the Chem-Dry opportunity
There’s a reason why Franchise Chatter ranked Chem-Dry the No.1 carpet-cleaning franchise for 2019. Chem-Dry triumphed over the ZeroRes franchise and the rest of the segment’s brands, because at nearly 3,500 locations around the globe, there is simply no comparison.
Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise. We are in 55 countries, serving 11,000 homes and businesses a day. Chem-Dry has been Entrepreneur magazine’s top-rated carpet cleaning franchise for more than 30 straight years.
Researching a business opportunity is an exciting task, and while you may be researching the ZeroRes franchise opportunity, it pays to research Chem-Dry as well. All brands are a little different in terms of support teams, strategies, values and ROI, and the more you learn about Chem-Dry, the more you’ll be excited to join our rapidly growing franchise family.
Chem-Dry does carpet cleaning better than any other brand
Almost every aspect of the Chem-Dry process — from our patented cleaning products to the proprietary equipment we use to apply them — is based on decades of scientific research. For almost 40 years, Chem-Dry has led the carpet cleaning industry with cutting-edge products and cleaning processes with superior results. It begins with our Hot Carbonating Extraction process, which relies on chemistry to emulsify dirt and debris for safer, more effective removal. Science is behind everything we do, according to Chem-Dry President and CEO Dan Tarantin, and that has led directly to our consistently being ranked the top carpet cleaning franchise for the past three decades.
In addition to being safe for kids and pets, and environmentally friendly (50+ green-certified products and more coming all the time) we have diversified our offerings to cover the whole home, including floor and tile cleaning, upholstery and area rug cleaning, granite and leather renewal, air duct and dryer vent cleaning, and more. Every bid and job provides the opportunity for upselling services, creating value and repeat client business, while also boosting revenue for the franchise owner.
“We have a history of innovation, and continually improving the production, the processes and the services we offer our franchisees to help them stay on the leading edge of the industry,” Tarantin says.
Chem-Dry is a low-cost investment with the potential for high financial returns
This is an ideal franchise for an entrepreneurial-minded individual with ambition, determination and an aptitude for business. However, it does not require a large amount of money or experience to begin. Chem-Dry can be a home-based business, so no expensive commercial leases or storefront property to worry about. We provide the necessary training during a week-long session in either Logan, Utah, or Nashville, Tennessee. You can start your Chem-Dry business by financing much of the business alongside a down-payment of $6,000 for the initial licensing fee plus, typically, 10% to 20% down on initial equipment purchases. All told, your total startup costs can be as low as $56,495.
