Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Franchise Targets Client-Rich Houston Market

At Aug. 28 VIP Event, Entrepreneurs Can Meet Leaders of Biggest Carpet Cleaning Company

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - The world's largest carpet and upholstery cleaning company, Chem-Dry, is reaching out to entrepreneurs in Houston to strengthen its presence in the nation's fourth-largest city.

With national carpet cleaning sales of $6.8 billion and 14 billion square feet of new carpeting installed every year, demand is growing for Chem-Dry's patented, environmentally safe products and processes.

With 6.1 million people and 25 Fortune 500 companies, the Houston metropolitan area is a prime target for Chem-Dry expansion. Affluent professionals and businesses are most likely to use Chem-Dry's residential and commercial cleaning services. To educate local professionals about the opportunity, members of Chem-Dry's executive team -- including CEO Dan Tarantin and Bill Knight, its vice president of franchise development -- will host a free VIP Business Ownership Seminar in Houston at 7 p.m. on Aug. 28.

Dinner will be provided, along with important information about Chem-Dry's outstanding franchise opportunity, one of the franchise industry's best values because of its low cost, growth potential and flexibility. Attendees will learn about how franchises work; why carpet cleaning businesses fare well even in difficult economic times; and why self-employment is a great option in today's economy.

Only 10 Chem-Dry franchisees serve the enormous Houston market, leaving significant growth opportunities.

"We want people to be able to shake our hands and get to know us in a relaxed restaurant environment," Tarantin said. "We're excited about the chance to engage with smart professionals and show them how they can capitalize on Chem-Dry's growth in the Houston market."

Seats are limited, and registration for the event is required. To register and for more information, visit
