Chem-Dry Signs Deal to Clean Up Jackson

Local Entrepreneur Inks Franchise Agreement to Bring Several Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Vans to Market

June 16, 2015 // // JACKSON, Miss. – Chem-Dry, the world's leading carpet and upholstery cleaning service, today announces a signed franchise development agreement that will bring new vans to the streets of Jackson. Magnolia Chem-Dry will provide the best in carpet cleaning to residents of Rankin, Hinds, Scotts and Madison County. The signed franchise announcement follows several consecutive years of explosive growth for the 3,000-unit brand, which is opening an average of more than 100 new franchises per year.

The new Chem-Dry will open under the leadership of franchisee Fred Brereton, who operates several Chem-Dry franchises with the support of his family. A veteran Chem-Dry owner for more than 20 years, Brereton invested in his first operation in the Pensacola area after arriving to a vacation home whose carpets had been ineffectively cleaned prior to his arrival. With his young family stuck with a soggy carpet during their stay, Fred knew there was a better solution available, and was inspired to introduce it to the Pensacola area. With more than 20 years of business experience under his belt in a variety of territories, Fred and his family are poised to be expanding their family business into additional territories.

“With a significant demand for environmentally friendly carpet cleaning services in the area that are both pet and child-friendly, Chem-Dry will immediately prove to be a great fit for Jackson,” said Brereton. “Chem-Dry’s services are far and above any other carpet and upholstery cleaner, so I am excited for the opportunity to bring the brand to town.”

When the first van begins service in June, homeowners in Jackson can expect carpet and upholstery cleaning services unlike anything in the market today. Chem-Dry uses a proprietary green-certified solution and proprietary hot carbonating extraction cleaning process to provide a deeper clean, allow surfaces to dry faster and leave homes healthier. The brand’s primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, doesn’t contain any detergents or harsh chemicals, making it safe and non-toxic for kids and pets. Additionally, Chem-Dry uses 80 percent less water than steam cleaning, so carpets dry in one to two hours, instead of one to two days.

“This franchise agreement marks a major milestone for the Chem-Dry brand as we continue our exponential growth and debut our unique carpet cleaning processes in new markets throughout the country,” said D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Consumers in Mississippi have made it clear they are looking for superior products and eco-friendly cleaning services. We are confident in Fred as a franchise partner who is tasked with introducing our brand to Jackson.”
