Chem-Dry Franchise Posts Solid Single-Year Growth in 2015

Consumer Demand, Plus a Stronger Economy, Brought More First-Time Franchise Owners on Board, While Existing Owners Picked up New Territories

NASHVILLE, TN - (Marketwired - Mar 8, 2016) - Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchise signed 117 new franchise agreements in 2015, the company's highest tally since 2007. At the same time, Chem-Dry was ranked No. 1 in its category in Entrepreneur magazine's 2016 Franchise 500 listing, stirring up even more interest going into 2016.

"Consumer trends toward increased spending on home improvements and home services that help maintain a healthy home, coupled with strategic investments to strengthen our consumer value proposition and franchisee support, led to an outstanding year for Chem-Dry," said CEO Dan Tarantin. "As we continue to innovate to deliver a superior product and experience for our customers and deliver the tools our franchisees need to be successful, we will continue to enjoy strong marketplace growth."

In recent years, Chem-Dry's corporate team has invested in additional support and key personnel to strengthen offerings and provide new resources for franchisees, including enhanced startup training for new owners and new marketing tools.

Significant investments in research and development have led to new, improved, proprietary products being added to Chem-Dry's line of superior solutions and leading-edge equipment, further enhancing franchisee performance and consumer satisfaction.

As more and more consumers search for green home cleaning solutions, Chem-Dry stands out. Chem-Dry cleaning franchise professionals use a green-certified solution and proprietary deeper-cleaning Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process to create healthier homes and workplaces. In a commissioned study by an independent lab, Chem-Dry's HCE cleaning method was found to remove 98 percent of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery and 89 percent of airborne bacteria when a sanitizer was added.

"Chem-Dry fulfills the desire for a cleaner, healthier home and work environment with our safe, faster-drying, eco-friendly cleaning method," Tarantin said. "Chem-Dry offers a unique value proposition that fits the demands of today's consumers, as well as the current family of Chem-Dry cleaning franchise owners and the entrepreneurs who are interested in working with us. We are well positioned for continued growth in 2016 and beyond."
