Tamarac, FL – (September 14, 2020) – PuroClean, a leading restoration, and remediation franchise, today announced record growth in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to increased demand for service among residential and business property owners, the company has signed 31 new franchise agreements since May 1. Furthermore, PuroClean has opened 21 new franchise locations across the country since January.
“During these unprecedented times, we are overwhelmed to receive this success and stand strongly behind our franchise owners and their families as they embark on new entrepreneurial journeys entering into our franchise system to help build their futures,” said Mark W. Davis, Chairman, and CEO of PuroClean. “We are fortunate now more than ever that our industry is able to offer essential business services to aide millions of property owners across the country and support their communities to ensure their safety.”
Many of PuroClean’s accomplishments this year are due to the brand’s servant leadership culture and world-class support provided by hundreds of franchise owners across the network, assisting businesses as they re-open. In order to continue success, PuroClean provided its franchise network with ongoing elevated support, including franchise network calls, marketing materials, and enhanced cleaning guidelines for COVID-19 biohazard cleanup procedures. The brand also updated its training program to comply with social distancing guidelines, introduced new online academy courses to educate franchise owners, and offered virtual in-field training to launch new offices.
“At PuroClean, we have never been prouder to stand together as ONE TEAM than we are today knowing the major impact we are having on people as we serve their communities,” said Steve White, President, and COO of PuroClean. “Our team continues to innovate and introduce new ways to educate our franchise owners and their teams so that they can provide relentless customer support to those who need it most.
In order to reach affected communities, PuroClean’s corporate headquarters strengthened its reigns to launch new ways to introduce, train, educate, and grow the franchise system. To drive vast franchise growth, PuroClean quickly reimagined its connection with potential franchise candidates into a virtual platform setting, allowing them to experience an in-depth view of the franchise opportunity. Through the virtual platform, potential owners were treated to a first-look into the corporate headquarters and received one-on-one sessions with the brand’s executive leadership team. Since shifting into a digital experience, more than 60 franchise candidates from coast to coast have entered the meetings eager to make a difference in people’s lives.
“As the pandemic hit, we knew we needed to discover new ways to connect with potential candidates who had been recently furloughed, and we quickly sought out ways through virtual meetings, advertising, social media, and public relations to connect with entrepreneurs,” Tim Courtney, CFE, VP of Franchise Development at PuroClean. “These impactful changes have led to a record number of candidates in our pipeline, which ultimately led the greatest franchise growth to date.”
