CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 15, 2012 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // -- While most people go through life avoiding the 'dirty work,' Enviro-Master is taking on the often avoided task of restroom sanitization. This one-of-a-kind concept has positioned itself at the forefront of the multi-billion dollar restroom hygiene industry, offering would-be entrepreneurs a recession-proof franchise opportunity, while enhancing the image of hygiene customers and even increasing their revenues.
With 11 franchises currently open and operating in seven states, Enviro-Master is looking to have a total of 100 U.S. franchises within the next 48 months.
With a client list that reads like a "Who's Who" of blue chip companies -- including Pepsi, Exxon, Firestone, BP, Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut and Chili's, among others -- Enviro-Master is introducing a new era of restroom hygiene with its services and products. Delivering hygiene and sani-scrub services which kill disease-carrying bacteria, germs and odors on contact, Enviro-Master protects its clients' brand and polishes their images from the inside out.
"In all businesses, restroom cleanliness is a reflection upon the quality and professionalism of the business," said Enviro-Master CEO Pat Swisher, who previously founded Swisher Hygiene and is often credited with 'inventing' the restroom hygiene industry. "And this is where Enviro-Master shines. By making our clients' restrooms a positive reflection on their business, we improve their image and can even increase their revenues."
In a germ-conscious world, Enviro-Master frees restroom areas from germs which can cross-contaminate patrons in minutes. Enviro-Master trained technicians use chemicals, which are specifically designed to remove germs and bacteria from restroom porcelain surfaces and even within their microscopic pores. Using low pressure equipment and cleaning solutions, Technicians spray and scrub all restroom surfaces -- including walls, floors, stalls and hardware -- and effectively treating such diseases as MRSA, Influenza A, Hepatitis Coli, Streptococcus, Salmonella and Tuberculosis, among others. Once surfaces are clean, Enviro-Master applies a protective coating which prevents organic penetration and kills bacteria and viruses for up to nine days.
"Enviro-Master understands the importance of hygiene to the image of our customers, as well as the health of their employees and patrons. We also understand that hygiene service and products must be delivered in a cost-effective manner to build and sustain long-term relationships," said COO Dean Lovett, noting the company's continued efforts to drive down its cost of service, without sacrificing quality.
Swisher believes that the handful of Swisher Hygiene franchisees who have already purchased Enviro-Master franchises is strong validation for entrepreneurs seeking a business opportunity with very little competition and a recurring revenue stream in a recession-resistant industry. "Particularly in today's economy, it would be difficult to find a business opportunity which requires such a modest capital investment, while offering very significant income to its owners," he added.
With a minimal capital investment estimated between $85,000 and $190,000, which includes typical franchise fees of $35,000-$75,000, Enviro-Master grants only one franchise in most metro areas, allowing franchise owners to own a large territory with exclusive rights to the Enviro-Master system and brand. Territories are measured by population and can range from a half a million to two million.
