Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Franchise Welcomes Former Restaurant Manager John St. John to Growing System

Charleston, S.C., Location Strengthens Eastern Franchise Base for World's Largest Carpet Cleaner

CHARLESTON, SC - (Marketwire - Aug 8, 2012) - John St. John spent his career in restaurants. But after a quarter-century in hospitality, St. John found himself thinking about going into business for himself -- and that didn't mean opening a restaurant.

"I decided that restaurants were great when I was younger," he said. "But I began wanting a more secure financial future, plus more control and flexibility over my schedule."

The route he chose was one more than 1,000 entrepreneurs have embraced as a low-cost, high-return franchise with flexibility and scalability to spare: Chem-Dry, the world's largest carpet cleaner, which uses natural products and processes to safely clean other surfaces as well.

Chem-Dry is an ideal franchise for a beginning entrepreneur because of its low investment -- as little as $9,995 down and $30,345 overall -- relative simplicity and superb support from an experienced team of franchise professionals.

St. John Chem-Dry, as St. John has named his business, serves the greater Charleston area, including Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, James Island and Summerville. His opening is part of Chem-Dry's aggressive expansion east of the Mississippi; the 4,200-unit system, based for 35 years in Logan, Utah, recently opened a regional headquarters in Nashville, Tenn.

"We're excited to have someone with John's experience and enthusiasm join our team of franchisees, especially in an area we've targeted for growth," said Dan Tarantin, president and CEO of Chem-Dry's parent company, Harris Research Inc. "John will help anchor our growing presence on the East Coast. He'll also serve as a working example of Chem-Dry's value to entrepreneurs from any professional background who want to own and operate their own businesses."
