May 01, 2008 // Franchising.com // ANN ARBOR, MI,– Inc. magazine's Candee Wilde, names DUCTZ, Entrepreneur magazine's #1 duct-cleaning franchise, one of her "Candee's Picks" in the "Franchise" section of the May issue.
Responding to the question, "How do you expect the weak housing market to affect home –improvement business opportunities?" Candee answers: "It likely will help those home-improvement businesses that provide high-quality products and workmanship, and control costs, so they can quote their customers a competitive price and still maintain a solid profit margin.
"Candee's right, and our business is further insulated from the mood swings of the economy because we focus on two significant and expanding industry segments: property restoration and the insurance market," said John Rotche, DUCTZ president.
