Busting Common Restoration Franchise Myths With PuroClean

With so many franchise myths out there, it’s important to focus on actual facts. Did you know there are more than 750,000 franchise businesses in the United States? People open franchises because the model comes with many benefits not available when starting a business from scratch — and opening a fire and water restoration franchise with PuroClean is no different! 

But, while millions of people shop at franchises, eat at franchises and live near them, there are some myths about doing business as a franchise partner that might discourage someone from taking advantage of a PuroClean opportunity to open a restoration franchise. Let’s take a look at three of those franchise myths here — and bust them!

You Need Industry Experience

Many potential franchise partners believe that to be successful, they need a background in the industry they’d like to do business in. However, because of PuroClean’s comprehensive pre-opening training, ongoing support and time-tested franchise model, prior experience is not necessary! We know starting out and staying on solid footing is key to your success, and we don’t leave that up to chance. Our brand has been a recognized and respected one for 20 years, and that’s due in large part to the hard work of our franchise owners and the support we show them for the life of their business.

It’s Too Risky

Starting any business carries with it a certain amount of risk, but franchises are statistically less risky endeavors because of all the effort the franchisor has invested in them. Kinks have been worked out, best practices have been put in place and the business model acts as a roadmap for property restoration franchise owners to follow, taking a lot of the guesswork out of day-to-day operations. 

Of course, no brand can guarantee an owner’s ultimate success, but opening a PuroClean restoration franchise means you’ll be partnered with a franchisor who has decades of experience and a deep knowledge of the restoration industry. Having access to our expertise and resources makes it much easier to learn how to start a water restoration company, freeing you up to focus on customer service and growth! In addition, water damage restoration industry statistics show an industry in demand with potential for steady growth in uncertain times. 

You Won’t Have Freedom

Another one of these franchise myths about the franchisor/franchise partner relationship is that you won’t be allowed to run things on your own, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth! While all franchise brands do have specific guidelines and procedures that franchise owners must follow (it’s what takes so much of the guesswork out of running your business), the fact is, when it comes to opening a restoration franchise with PuroClean, our business model allows for a lot of individuality from our franchising candidates. Among other things, you’ll decide who to hire, how you want to structure your time and how you can engage with your local community to become a valued business partner through proven programs that build goodwill and profitable sales.

Best of all, our franchise partners often find that once they’ve established their franchises, they’re able to strike a better work/life balance  that allows them more time with family and friends. The bottom line is that relying on our franchise owners to make important decisions on their own and run their businesses without interference contributes to our brand’s overall success.
