How to Open a Restoration Franchise with PuroClean: Answers to Some Common Questions

Puroclean Agreements and Sign

If you’re wondering how to open a restoration franchise with PuroClean and what some of our restoration franchise requirements might be, we’re happy to say our process and requirements are straightforward and basic. We look for candidates who are financially qualified, of course, but who also show a love of community and a willingness to follow our time-tested business model. Below are answers to a few common questions we hear about our opportunity. Feel free to reach out to us with yours if you don’t see it here.

Do I need industry experience?

Absolutely not! One of the great things about our opportunity is that it comes with comprehensive training and support, so you can feel ready to leverage our business model and make the most of our recession-resistant industry. While experience isn’t necessary, we do look for potential franchise owners who are excited about making a difference in their community, who have leadership abilities, and who are comfortable following the processes and procedures laid out in our model.

Will I just be called on for storm and fire damage repair?

No. More often than not, you’ll be responding to the damage caused by everyday emergencies like broken pipes and kitchen fires, as well as mold issues and construction cleanup. Thousands of U.S. properties require attention from these kinds of occurrences every year, and your PuroClean franchise will be the go-to source for remediation. Natural disasters, like fires and floods, will also come into play, but not nearly as often as these more common scenarios.

How much money can I make?

This is a common question and one that really doesn’t have a definitive answer. A lot will depend on your operating and occupancy costs, your financing terms, and, most importantly, the efforts you put into your franchise and your ability to follow our business model effectively.

No franchisor can guarantee how any franchise will perform; what we can say is based on 2018 reported financials, 176 franchises reported average system-wide sales of $779,378, while 109 franchises reported an average gross margin of 56%.

I already own a restoration business. Why should I convert to a PuroClean franchise?

There are so many reasons to think about converting your existing business to a PuroClean franchise — too numerous to mention here! A PuroClean partnership gets you access to our proven business model, our deep industry expertise, and our national marketing strategies, all of which can elevate your current business to the next level! Beyond that, you can count on:

  • Access to national accounts that will help you grow your bottom line.
  • The ability to keep your current book of business with our open territory design.
  • The day-to-day expert support of our operations and marketing teams.
  • Leveraging the knowledge and accountability of our network of owners.

These are only a few of the reasons why converting makes sense. When you join PuroClean, you become part of something bigger than yourself and can rely on the support of the entire brand family for the life of your business.
