PuroClean is excited to announce that our August 2018 class of franchise owners have just graduated from New Franchise Owner Training (NFT). We are happy to have them on our team and we cannot wait to see them succeed in their communities. Read more about our new franchise owners below.
Bonnie and Joey Teichert, PuroClean of Biloxi, Ocean Springs, MS
After spending their careers working for other people, both Bonnie and Joey wanted to be their own boss. Bonnie spent several years as a teacher and most recently was running a small catering company. Although Bonnie kept the business ticking and humming, ultimately it was someone else’s business. Joey currently works in the biotech industry, helping doctor’s offices work with insurance companies to help patients get prescriptions. Both are self-starters who will work on day-to-day operations and marketing of their new PuroClean business.
The duo was drawn to PuroClean after their son had worked for a water restoration company. They took a look at a handful of restoration brands and were drawn to the positive atmosphere, family feel and servant leadership style of PuroClean. They quickly fell in love with the brand and everything it represents.
Bonnie and Joey launched their new business in early September, and we can’t wait to see where their PuroClean takes them! The husband-and-wife team is serving the coast of Mississippi, specifically the communities in Biloxi, D’Iberville, Ocean Springs, Gulf Port, and Gautier.
Frank and Elizabeth Forray, PuroClean of Silicon Beach, Los Angeles, CA
This will be Frank’s second foray into the franchising world. He previously headed operations, training, and innovations for Sky Zone. Frank most recently enjoyed a career in business consulting. In addition to an impressive business acumen, Franks has been in an 80’s heavy metal band for more than 25 years. Making the new business a family affair, Frank will own and operate his PuroClean franchise with his wife, Elizabeth, who will also continue her career in business management.
What drove Frank and Elizabeth to PuroClean was an attraction to the idea of entrepreneurship and the opportunity to be their own boss. Frank believes in the franchise model and knows the harder one works, the more benefits one reaps. When the Forrays first learned of PuroClean, they were intrigued by the expansive territory opportunities, the support of the Home Office, the transparency of decision-making, and the leadership of Mark W. Davis and the rest of the executive team.
Frank’s PuroClean office will serve the Los Angeles coast, specifically Westchester, Marina Del Rey, and El Segundo. PuroClean is looking forward to seeing the growth of this Southern California family business, and the team is excited to have the Forrays onboard.
John & Rochelle Marsh, PuroClean of West Boise, Kuna, ID
Prior to joining PuroClean, John became a licensed CPA and earned an Executive MBA. He’s worked in accounting and finance leadership roles across various industries. Before entering the business world, John was a wildland firefighter for the Forest Service, oftentimes attacking wildfires in remote areas by rappelling out of a helicopter. Rochelle has a long history in the auto industry sand her most recently served as Regional Banking Center Manager for Wells Fargo auto lending in Southern Idaho, Eastern Oregon, and Western Wyoming. In 2003, the duo opened a business in the resort industry but parted ways with the business during the last recession. John and Rochelle then looked for an opportunity that would allow them to work under their own ethics system, utilize their skills, and grow for the future.
After researching multiple franchise and non-franchise business opportunities, PuroClean stood out to John and Rochelle. The duo saw how well the business model operated and was impressed by the leadership. They saw that PuroClean was a company that was doing things the right way and provides entrepreneurs with the tools necessary to be successful. Excited for the opportunities this new business will present for the couple, they are most eager to grow the business as a family and spend more quality time in the outdoors with their son.
PuroClean is happy to have John and Rochelle join this exceptional network of franchise owners and looks forward to seeing their success in the Boise community.
Tim Kreczmer, PuroClean of Lake in the Hills, Lake in the Hills, IL
Tim has spent his career working in accounting and finance for various companies, from hedge funds, to real estate. He always wanted to start a business on his own and began looking into a few franchises. He researched many concepts, from golf, to retail, and was drawn to PuroClean because of the recession-proof industry. Coming from the risk-averse world of accounting, Tim could see that restoration was a smarter choice than retail. He was also enticed by the opportunity to help people in their time of need. Meeting the corporate team in Tamarac, Florida was what made Tim’s decision an easy one. He signed his franchise deal three days after getting to know the PuroClean team.
We are excited to see all that Tim achieves with PuroClean and know that he will do a fantastic job serving the Lake in the Hills community.
